This webinar will hear first-hand from modular factories, local authorities and architects surrounding the challenges and opportunities facing modular construction adoption in London
Modern methods of construction are not a new phenomenon to building, however, there is still hesitancy in the uptake of these techniques within the sector. Built environment specialists are calling to elevate modern methods of construction higher up on the agenda to combat growing issues London is facing.
 
Sustainability and efficient delivery of housing are key concerns for London – factory-made construction could be a viable solution to both. However, what are the barriers facing MMC adoption in London? What strategies are Local Authorities implementing in order to widen the adoption of MMC?  How are modular factories, tackling issues concerning sustainability, technical design, supply chain, costs, and feasibility?

This technical briefing will hear from manufacturers, local authorities and designers on the key concerns facing the MMC agenda and factory-made solutions that are being implemented to drive it forward.
