What Are Modern Methods of Construction?
Modern methods of construction or MMC are a broad range of things. Everyone thinks it’s just building containers and houses in a factory and then transporting them to the site all kitted out. That’s just not the case. Modern Methods of Construction can be anything new that can speed up the process on-site and is more sustainable than traditional methods. For example, it could be a normal timber frame, timber frame SIPS (structural insulated panels), light gauge steel, or a panelised system like the one that we use in our factory at White Haus.

Can Intelligent Membranes Products Be Used In MMC?
The answer is yes – and our panelised system is a good example. We use our expertise to put together the timber frame and cladding before putting the windows in. The work is done off-site, then transported on-site and constructed like a kind of Ikea house. Another good example of our products being used in Modern Methods of Construction is our partnership with Innovare Systems which is the largest SIPS company in the UK.
They construct in the factory and then send the products out to the site. They use our liquid-applied membranes to ensure their build is airtight before it leaves the factory – it gives them peace of mind that, when the structure arrives on site, it is 100% airtight and ready to use.
