Modern methods of construction

This session will report on the research-enabled transformation process taken to the development of offsite manufactured hospital theatres. It will explain how advanced design and MMC engineering firms have been involved in articulating client requirements, agreeing new standards and developing capabilities for advanced hospital specific design platforms, kit of parts and digital configurators. It will share how the consortium has been health service led in developing new capabilities, stimulating open sourcing and establishing supply network integration to reduce risk and increase innovation. It will also discuss how these advances in engineering and manufacturing will attract investment, deliver repeatability and stimulate mass-customised hospital theatre solution. This project is funded by The Transforming Construction Network Plus (N+). The N+ is funded by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), an investment supported by the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund (ISCF)
