Published by Glenigan on 25th January 2021 -
As modern methods of construction (MMC) become increasingly popular for clients, architects and contractors looking for faster ways to deliver projects, MMC is only going to become more popular, and companies able to work in this sector should gain advantage over those that can’t.
With this in mind we’ve analysed our data and identified the top ten projects (by total project value) featuring an MMC element starting on-site in 2021, to help illustrate the size of the opportunity.
We can show you every project in the U.K. where MMC is featured - with all the relevant decision maker contact details of course - just request a free demo and we’ll be in touch to arrange a convenient time to show you.
