Making modular work in Manchester and the North West
In our second roundtable on modular construction we looked at the particular challenges of developing modular accommodation in Manchester and the North West, as recently highlighted by Joanne Roney, Chief Executive of Manchester City Council.
We explored the success stories as well as the barriers, and gauged the attendees’ feedback on the aims of the House of Lords Committee and where they felt the Government could assist in delivering real change to boost off-site and modular developments.
The session was chaired by Michael Cleaver, Director at The Housing Forum, a cross-sector organisation with members from throughout the housing supply chain that seeks to act as a mouthpiece for the industry on issues around housing capacity and quality.
