Buildoffsite, in association with CIRA, is hosting their second annual MMC conference which is dedicated to the offsite sector and the opportunities for modern methods of construction (MMC) on 23 March 2022

As the awareness of modern methods of construction continues to grow, the annual MMC 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 proven as a viable way to address the UK’s housing crisis and provide sustainable construction solutions in other sectors such as infrastructure.

However, despite the benefits of MMC, barriers still persist. This includes lack of industry standardisation, upfront investment and access to funding, availability of materials, to lack of stakeholder engagement including architects and designers.

The conference will discuss the following topics:

  • 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.

The annual MMC conference will be free for Buildoffsite members.
