Modern Methods of Construction Research Group

The MMCRG was established in 2021 by Dr Daniel McCrum to bring together researchers, academics and industry partners to tackle challenges faced by Modern Methods of Construction (MMC).  Offsite MMC have been lauded for their ability to meet building/housing targets while achieving high quality, lower onsite construction time, simplification of end-of-life recycling, but also reducing embodied carbon and waste. Despite the benefits of MMC, uptake has been low, largely due to lack of guidelines, shared experimental and numerical data, training, and capital investment. The MMCRG aims to address these issues and help the construction industry transition from construction towards manufacture.
