MMC Ireland is a new industry body established to develop Ireland’s offsite and other modern methods of construction. It will achieve this by sharing sectoral knowledge and insights and engaging with state and industry bodies to facilitate adoption.
Some of Ireland’s best-known construction brands are among the founding members of new industry body MMC Ireland, which has been established to represent those involved in the planning, design, procurement or delivery of offsite and other modern methods of construction (MMC) in Ireland.
Building solutions innovator Etex has announced the acquisition of Horizon Offsite. This acquisition follows closely on the group’s purchase of Cork-based technical consultancy company Evolusion Innovation. It boosts Etex’s ability to deliver offsite building solutions in Ireland and the UK, helping the company’s European modular ambitions.
