Tackling the sustainability agenda in construction and building assets: why the public sector should be thinking ‘modular first’

Did you know that modular building solutions and Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) can help support a more sustainable approach to your buildings projects? Read our blog to find out more.

In these days of climate concern, the UK government is spearheading the move towards zero emissions. Eco-friendly and sustainable construction solutions are crucial if the UK is to meet the net zero emission targets set for 2050, now enshrined in UK Law.

Construction is one of the key sectors that needs to shift to more sustainable models. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) cites construction as one of the seven dominant sectors responsible for substantial greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Indeed, the Global Status Report 2017 deemed that building and construction are responsible for 39% of all carbon emissions in the world.

While current use of Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) is still relatively low, there is an increasing acceptance of the importance of eco-friendly solutions and the need to embrace MMC. It’s incumbent on constructors and their customers to consider the environment in their projects. Forward-thinking companies are increasingly incorporating more sustainable measures in their designs, plans and processes. Far from restricting economic opportunity, modular buildings have the potential to be an exciting and expanding area of growth – as well as offering a host of benefits to end users and a more sustainable way to build.

We have published a free whitepaper: Modular Buildings & Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) Why the public sector should be thinking ‘modular first’ which guides you through the many key benefits of considering MMC in your buildings projects, how it supports sustainability measures and guidance on what your next steps should be.
