RICS Modern Methods of Construction
- Location: Great George Street, London
- Date: 18/09/2018
- Time: 17:30 - 19:00
BLP's Jeff Maxted (Director of Technical Consultancy) and Sam Ferneley (Business Development Executive - BLP Consult) will attend the RICS Modern Methods of Construction event entitled 'Modern Methods of Construction - a solution to the housing crisis?' on Tuesday 18 September.
A discussion of Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) needs to be in the context of a shortfall of about 100,000 newbuild housing completions per annum against government targets. Also relevant is the diminishing residential construction labour force due to age, repatriation and lack of replacement, as spelled out in Mark Farmer's report "Modernise of Die" in 2016.
This event launches the RICS Modern Methods of Construction Case Studies Paper on new homes constructed utilising various MMCs. The paper aims to raise consciousness and confidence about MMC and is aimed at all those who are interested in solving our housing crisis.
This event will hear from an expert panel on these issues.
