The MMC definition framework provides a new regularised terminology for ‘Modern Methods of Construction’ used in homebuilding.
Emanating from the UK government, MMC gives social housing providers and their homebuilding partners a common language that will aid collaboration and further adoption of pre-manufacturing, site based materials and process innovations.
LHC wants to help social housing providers in every part of the UK to deliver more homes, much faster and with a lower environmental impact.
LHC’s NH2 and MB2 Frameworks cover categories 1 and 2 of the MMC definition framework.
(3D primary structural systems)
(2D primary structural systems)
(non-stylised primary structure)
(structural and non-structural)
(non traditional assemblies & sub-assemblies)
Traditional building product led site labour reduction / productivity improvements
Site process led site labour reduction / productivity / assurance improvements

In consultation with social housing providers and LHC Appointed Companies we've established the key concerns organisations have about adopting Modern Methods of Construction and developed advice on how to mitigate the risks. These insights are captured in our Mitigating the risks of MMC, written for Board members and decision makers.
