Launch of The Housing Forum’s MMC Guide for Affordable Housing Developers

 

 

“Modern Methods of Construction – the key to increasing the supply of affordable homes in the UK”

 

 

Last month, we hosted a breakfast briefing in London to launch MMC for Affordable Housing Developers – a guide to overcoming the hurdles associated with modern methods of construction (MMC).

 

It aims to bust the myths associated with non-traditional building techniques and provide practical advice to clients considering an off-site approach to delivery.

 

In creating the guide, a working group of members of The Housing Forum was drawn from all areas of the supply chain to examine the challenges faced by affordable developers when adopting new methods.

 

The launch highlighted the guide's messages on public procurement, "smart" ways to design and how MMC can work in the affordable sector.

 

The launch was supported by the following speakers:

 

  • Robert Clark – Head of Business and Product Development – Fusion Building Systems
  • Katie Saunders – Partner, Trowers & Hamlins
  • David Cordery – Partner, Trowers & Hamlins
  • Sanjiv Sangha – Technical Manager, Southern Housing Group
  • John Milner – Equity Partner, Baily Garner
  • Jeff Endean – Director, Cast Consultancy
