Government cash awarded to Offsite Research Projects
The MMCA consortium is examining how modern methods of construction in the UK, can increase the rate of housebuilding. The Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund, overseen by the government’s innovation agency, Innovate UK, has awarded £6.5m to the project.
This is a three-year project and AIMCH’s backers expect the project to lead to new design tools, better near-to-market offsite systems, advances in manufacturing, and lean site processes.
By the end of this year the first results of the project are expected. The methods deemed successful, from the results of the trials on live housing projects, will be commercialised and brought to the market in volume.

Plans to build 3,000 homes in Dagenham rejected
A scheme to build 3,000 homes on a former Ford car plant in Essex was rejected in April by the local council.
Having been OK’d by neighbouring Dagenham and Barking councils, the plans were not up to scratch for Havering council who said the plans drawn up by architect Patel Taylor were not good enough.
The plans have since been called back in by London’s deputy mayor to be reviewed.
