Why Oxford is serious about investing in MMC


The city is due to complete its first zero carbon social housing project and soon it will launch a £750m modular framework, says ODS’s Simon Yung

In this context, the modular construction industry looks set for a boom, as it promises quicker, safer, carbon-efficient building.

The government has put MMC at the forefront of housing policy, and the ‘build back better’ campaign post pandemic. Switching to off-site modular building for eco-friendly and efficient-to-erect homes is a logical step in the right direction, if we are to meet pressing social housing needs in the coming decade.
