Could England Build 80,000 Modular Homes a Year by 2030?

Construction of an “additional” 75,000 homes a year in England by 2030 could push the use of off-site construction and “Modern Methods of Construction” (MMC) to a tipping point of wider industry acceptance and move the modular sector beyond its current “cottage industry” status.

The modular industry’s production capacity was limited to only around 10,000-15,000 units a year at present, with only 4,000-5,000 of this capacity being utilised, with demand being held back by concerns over the stability of MMC manufacturing businesses and the lack of common standards which would allow another supplier to take over a scheme in the event of a business collapse.
