How to use the power of collaboration to develop using MMC

One of the biggest challenges around offsite construction is the cost of going it alone. However, social landlords often struggle to collaborate due to conflicting risk appetites and timeframes and an inability to agree on a common solution.

In this session you’ll hear from Trina Chakravarti (project director at Building Better) and a member housing association who will share their experience of overcoming collaboration challenges to deliver new housing that meets cost, quality and net zero carbon objectives.
