Resi Talks: How to unlock MMC at scale

Modern methods of construction have long been hailed as the solution for some of the housing industry’s biggest challenges, whether rising construction costs, lack of labour or speed of delivery.

But never has a challenge been so grave as climate change. This week, MMC was put back into the spotlight when the United Nations warned of a “code red for humanity” - a call to action that the real estate industry must now answer .

Responding to the seven-year report, industry experts have called for greater support for net zero homes and MMC production.

In this podcast EG’s residential editor, Emma Rosser, is joined by Patrick Bergin, chief financial officer at ilke Homes, Hannah Holmes, research associate at the University of Cambridge and co-author of the report Deploying Modular Housing in the UK from Places for People and Andrew Shepherd, managing director of TopHat .

The group discuss the benefits of MMC, the barriers to growth and getting housebuilders on board.
