In March 2021, emh agreed a deal to manufacture 42 modern methods of construction (MMC) homes in Nottinghamshire. Since then they have joined Building Better with the aim of scaling up their development of offsite homes. Their Development Director, Tim Wade, tells us about their drivers, their challenges and their plans for the future.
When did you first begin looking at MMC?
In 2018 we spoke to a building company about using fully manufactured bathroom pods for an extra care scheme. The pods were brought to site with tiling and a ceiling, and then craned in. Quality was a big driver for this project, and it was also quicker, cleaner and more efficient to use the pods.
