NHBC has revealed that MMC (Modern Methods of Construction) will be one of the key themes of its roadshows in 2019.
The ‘Building for tomorrow’ series, now in their 28th year, will in 2019 focus on preparing for quality homes by tackling such issues as the skills shortage, supply chain challenges and the changes to the regulatory landscape.
A strong feature will be the increasing use of components, framed construction and MMC which will all be explored as part of this year’s agenda. There will also be an update on the proposed changes in fire safety following the Hackitt Review.
Commenting on the agenda, Nick Cunningham, NHBC Regional Director for the South West Region, said: “We are in a period of great change in many aspects of the industry and of course the wider political sphere – we will aim to cover the key issues to help housebuilders adapt to these in the continuing bid to build more, high-quality new homes.
“Over many years Building for tomorrow has proved to be the perfect event to network with professionals from across the UK house-building sector and to showcase your latest products to industry leaders, home builders and housing associations.”
