What does New Technology & MMC mean for the Future of our Cities?

Due to technical difficulties, this event will now be held at Design West.

New Technology is changing the way we build our homes and cities.

Whilst advances in technology and fabrication could solve the housing crisis through speedy, efficient and reliable delivery what are the trade offs?

What do Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) mean for cities and their citizens.

And what does it mean for the construction industry and the 2.17M people who work in it?

Get the lowdown on what’s new in building and what the future might look like.

This talk is suitable for Professionals and the Public alike.
