    Abstract

    This dissertation investigates the use of modern methods of construction, assessing their suitability for the cost effective provision of accessible environments. With current UK Government policy requiring increased usage of Modern Methods of Construction, combined with a published shortage of accessible buildings in the UK, it was deemed necessary to analyse the accessibility and adaptability performances achieved with the use of such methods. With the use of existing secondary data, the current MMC market is explored and accessibility issues are analysed. The study analyses professional opinion concerning MMC and accessibility. With the use of collected primary data and existing secondary sources the study will examine the relationship between the use of Modern Methods of Construction and the provision of accessible environments.
