Kit of parts
DfMA Overlay to the RIBA Plan of Work, Mainstreaming Design for Manufacture and Assembly in Construction, 2nd Edition, published by the RIBA in 2021, defines a kit of parts as: ‘A system of separate proprietary parts manufactured off site, conceived to be efficiently assembled on site. The rationale for keeping the parts separate is to allow more efficient, safer handling and transportation, and to allow flexibility (within certain constraints) in their final configuration.’
