The modern way to


across the UK. And looking to the non-too-distant future,


create more space


While those in the modular building sector have known for some time the benefi ts of MMC (Modern Methods of Construction), it has taken a pandemic to help demonstrate its eff ectiveness to a wider audience. T e same construction methods that made possible the fast delivery of additional vital intensive care space to hospitals can be applied to a whole range of projects, including the education sector.
