MMC’s impact from design to whole lifecycle

23 March 2022 Add to calendar

Join us at our 2nd annual virtual conference dedicated to the offsite sector and the opportunities for Modern Methods of Construction (MMC). With awareness of MMC continuing to grow, this conference will focus on MMC’s impact from design to whole lifecycle and how we can overcome the challenges and barriers to wider adoption and implementation.

MMC represents the fastest growing area of construction, and has been hailed as a viable way to address the UK’s housing crisis and provide sustainable construction solutions in other sectors such as infrastructure.

However, despite its numerous benefits, barriers persist ranging from lack of industry standardisation, upfront investment and access to funding, availability of materials, to lack of stakeholder engagement including architects and designers.

This conference will shine the spotlight on:

• how MMC is helping to achieve net zero targets on projects
• MMC’s contribution to rethinking ‘value’ and whole life cycle including design and maintenance
• the role of MMC in delivering transport and logistical solutions
• financial incentives for innovating through MMC.
