Funding and development of modular housing
A view from the public and private sectors.
Trowers & Hamlins conducted a survey in August 2021 to gauge views on and experience with MMC (and in particular Categories 1 and 2 (volumetric and panelised systems)) within the affordable and private housing sectors. And, as part of a deeper dive into the topic, is conducting a series of roundtable discussions with registered housing providers, local authorities, private developers, house builders, manufacturers, funders, valuers, insurers and consultants.
The results of the survey and roundtables so far indicate a shift in thinking since Trowers’ last modular housing report in 2019. There are still issues to overcome to the wider adoption of modular construction, but it is generally viewed more positively as an alternative to traditional build.
This is a snapshot of some of the key findings, how easy it is to get funding, the motivations for using MMC and where there is work still to be done. Please click here to view the report.
The full report will be published after the conclusion of the series of roundtables.
