The NHBC Foundation has just published a report built on research carried out by Lychgate. Entitled ” Modern Methods of Construction – Views from the Industry”, The research aimed to establish current attitudes to modern methods of construction.
The study gathered views from over 160 senior representatives from house builders and housing associations in England and Scotland. A significant finding was that the majority (98%) of the organisations who took part in the study had used or considered the use of an MMC approach on at least one of their developments in the last three years. This suggests a good level of innovation within the house-building sector.
A number of benefits were recognised for MMC, with over 75% of participating house builders pointing to faster build programme and over 50% associating MMC with improved build quality. The report highlights the high level of adoption of factory-made assemblies and components, but a lower level of use of pods and volumetric systems.
