Modular Construction – Planning Issues, Opportunities and Constraints

Time: 15:25 - 15:45

Date: Wednesday 16 October


DPP ‘s involvement in the Modular Framework (MOD A, B and C) is extensive, including new and replacement Primary schools and Primary and Secondary School blocks.

In this talk I will outline the key issues and challenges arising from off-site methods of construction in the Planning process, including public perception, construction issues, and achieving planning conditions that are fit for purpose. I will emphasise measures which can be taken at pre-application stage to de-risk a project from a Planning point of view. I will also highlight how the benefits of modular construction can be ‘sold’ through the Planning process.
