In the latest in our series of FREE market sector reports we explore how offsite construction solutions are meeting the needs of the UK health sector, providing the facilities it needs in very-short timescales
Traditionally, building a new acute hospital can take up to 15 years as trusts meander through business case and planning approval to design and construction.
But the country’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted how, with collaboration and through the use of Modern Methods of Construction (MMC), infrastructure can be delivered in much-shorter timescales.
In this special report, we explore this trend and look at the various ways trusts are utilising MMC to deliver required upgrades and expansions.
And we talk to offsite construction specialists to find out why this approach is increasingly attractive and how the latest solutions are a world away from ‘60s prefab buildings.
