Top 5 MMC construction projects for 2021

February 2021

As modern methods of construction (MMC) become increasingly popular for clients, architects and contractors looking for faster ways to deliver projects, MMC is only going to become more popular, and companies able to work in this sector should gain advantage over those that can’t.

The top ten projects (by total project value) featuring an MMC element starting on-site in 2021, illustrate the size of the opportunity.

  1. The Soho Wharf, Birmingham

The £165 million Soho Wharf development will deliver a mixture of 650 one and two bedroom apartments along with an additional 106 two and three bedroom townhouses on the 12 acre site located between Edgbaston and the Jewellery Quarter. Additional commercial space, a children’s playground, community allotments, and pergolas also form part of the scheme. Galliard Homes are the main contractor and work is due to start on-site in March.

  1. Hospital Acute Receiving Centre, Greater Manchester

BAM is creating the £41 million Hospital Acute Receiving Centre at Salford Royal Hospital.  The six-storey scheme comprises construction of a new acute receiving centre featuring 72 new in-patient beds, five new theatres and other new facilities including treatment rooms and X-ray areas, and a helipad.

  1. Rivermead Industrial Estate

The £21.7 million, Rivermead Industrial Estate redevelopment on a former industrial estate in Chelmsford will provide student accommodation and offices to serve the Anglian Ruskin University campus.

  1. Royal Albert Dock Theatre, London
