Confronting the barriers to MMC
The second presenter at acumen7’s July meeting was Polypipe’s Divisional MD Vince Fenson, who spoke about confronting the barriers to the adoption of Modern Methods of Construction (MMC). A discussion followed on the reasons for the slow adoption of MMC, with the carbon neutral agenda being posed as a way of moving in the right direction in future. MMC eradicates the many ‘snags’ common in traditional builds and, as well as improving energy performance, also means less waste and pollution in the construction process. Polypipe’s businesses focus on developing and delivering engineered water and climate management solutions for the built environment.
