‘Modern Methods of Construction’ is an output of the MHCLG Joint Industry Working Group from the UK. Spanning all types of pre-manufacturing, site based materials and process innovation, MMC enables a “full and future-proofed” framework of seven categories to better understand regularised terminology.

The categories include:

  • Pre-manufacturing (3D primary structural systems)
  • Pre-manufacturing (2D primary structural systems)
  • Pre-manufacturing components (non-systemised primary structure)
  • Additive manufacturing (structural and non-structural)
  • Pre-manufacturing (non structural assemblies and sub-assemblies)
  • Traditional building product led site labour reduction / productivity improvements
  • Site process led site labour reduction / productivity / assurance / improvements
