Laying the foundations for Modern Methods of Construction

The report explores the addition of this form of housebuilding, particularly offsite construction, into the mainstream repertoire of the UK housing industry: housebuilders, mortgage lenders, surveyors and general insurers.  At scale it offers one way of easing the UK’s housing crisis, which is primarily caused by a lack of housing supply.

 The UK has consistently underbuilt for many years and the current contribution falls short of the Government target of 200,000 new homes a year.  Utilising offsite construction methods offers a way of providing well designed, high quality, affordable homes at a faster rate than is currently possible.  If the UK doesn’t diversify its housing supply, the imbalance between supply and demand cannot practically be broken.
