    Abstract

    This dissertation advances the knowledge of the industry perception towards Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) and Prefabrication. The focus is to establish the characteristics of this construction technique and whether the published literature on the topic is supported by a cross sector of industry professionals, experienced in construction projects using this method of construction.

    MMC techniques have previously been applied to the education sector and this research is particularly timely with the recent Government decision to reduce funding for the Building Schools for the Future (BSF) campaign. A comparison is offered from the experiences of senior members of schools against the opinions of the construction professionals and manufacturers, before the findings are concluded and recommendations offered to enhance the understanding of the topic area.
