Modern Methods of Housing Construction pdf icon PDF 2 MB

To consider a presentation from the Gloucestershire Housing and Community Partnership.

 

The County of Gloucestershire faces significant housing growth in the coming years to meet our need for new homes. Delivery of these new homes brings significant challenges and ‘modern methods of construction’ are likely to play an increasingly important part in the way our homes of the future are provided. It is claimed that the new methods of construction offer faster and possibly cheaper delivery of housing, but what does that mean for the different sectors of the housing market and are there economic benefits to be gained from the utilisation of these new methods of factory built homes.

 

This item will look at modern methods of construction from the point of view of registered housing providers and the affordable housing sector.
