KEYNOTE STAGE 1
AIMCH: transforming how we build homes
01 March / 11.15 - 12.00
Learn of the key outcomes and impact of this three year innovation project and what it means for the housebuilding industry as it comes to a close. The Advanced Industrialised Methods for the Construction of Homes (AIMCH) project aims to tackle key challenges faced by the housing sector including skills shortages, an ageing workforce, poor productivity, low output and low affordability while also becoming a major player in the housing sector by identifying and developing industrialised offsite solutions needed to meet current and future house building demands. The overall goal of the project is to support the sector by delivering 120,000 homes and has potential to impact on 35,000 homes being delivered by AIMCH partners across the UK, each year.
AIMCH has looked at prototyping, monitoring, future factory planning, technology, embodied carbon, product families and standardisation. This project has been a collaboration between Barratt Developments Plc, Stewart Milne Group, L&Q, Forster Roofing, Construction Scotland Innovation Centre (CSIC) and Manufacturing Technology (MTC). It is funded by Innovate UK.
Mark Farmer, Chair of AIMCH and a long-time advocate of Modern Methods of Construction will be presenting the story of how AIMCH is transforming how we build homes and sharing outcomes and learnings
