As distinct from traditional building methods, lightweight, modular and prefabricated construction – also referred to as Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) – involves the manufacturing of various building sections offsite. The main attractions of MMC include the fact that it can significantly cut construction time and costs, without compromising quality. For this reason, we have seen a significant increase in the number of modular and prefabricated buildings in recent years. While this trend is broadly good news and grounds for optimism in an industry under pressure, it does bring with it some unintended challenges. Most notably, when employing MMC, it is important to realise that the fire protection techniques used elsewhere, do not necessarily apply. If not designed and built correctly, modular and prefabricated buildings can represent a fire risk.
Beginning by explaining the reasons for these risks, this presentation goes on to outline the best ways to address them. It shows specifiers how to reap the benefits associated MCC, without lowering fire safety standards.
