The inaugural MMC Ireland National Conference at Croke Park on 06 June will include presentations on volumetric modular high-rise buildings and look at the role of offsite construction and modern methods of construction in making Irish construction more sustainable.
The MMC Ireland National Conference 2023, in association with Explore Offsite, is set to be a unique event that will bring together experts from across Ireland, the UK, and beyond to showcase best practices in offsite and modern methods of construction (MMC).
MMC Ireland National Conference
The conference will be held on 06 June at Croke Park, Dublin, and it is expected to attract a large audience of industry leaders, academics, and policymakers. The conference will feature a range of project case studies that will demonstrate the latest developments, innovations, and investments in the MMC sector. Attendees will learn about the MMC Ireland Framework, which is aimed at promoting the use of MMC across the country. The framework focuses on encouraging the use of offsite manufacturing, digitalisation, and other innovative approaches to construction.
Volumetric modular high-rise buildings
One of the highlights of the conference will be a presentation on moving volumetric modular high-rise buildings into Ireland. This will showcase the potential of this construction method for addressing the housing crisis in the country.
Volumetric modular construction involves manufacturing entire building units in a factory setting before being transported to the site for assembly. This method can significantly reduce construction time and costs while improving quality and safety.
There will also be a panel debate led by MMC Ireland, focused on how the housing sector can be further advanced using MMC. The panel will feature industry experts who will discuss the challenges and opportunities for adopting MMC in the housing sector.
Sustainability will be a key focus of the conference, with a presentation on the MMC journey to energy efficiency.
Attendees will learn about the latest innovations in sustainable construction and gain insights into the latest trends and best practices in this area. A case study will also be presented on Energy House 2.0, which is an innovative project that explores the use of energy-efficient materials and construction methods in building design.
Another important topic that will be discussed at the conference is upcoming national legislation related to climate and energy plans. Attendees will gain insights into the latest policy developments and learn about the impact of these changes on the MMC sector.
The conference will feature several interactive and dynamic panel discussions, including a session on ‘Digital Platforms Leading the way in MMC’. This will provide attendees with an opportunity to learn about the latest digital platforms that are driving innovation in the MMC sector. The panels will feature experts who will discuss the latest trends in digitalisation and provide insights into how digital platforms are transforming the construction industry.
With new speakers being announced weekly, the MMC Ireland National Conference 2023 is a must-attend event for anyone interested in the latest developments in offsite and modern methods of construction in Ireland. It will provide attendees with the opportunity to learn from industry leaders, network with peers, and gain valuable insights into the future of the MMC sector.
