Pre-manufacturing components (non-systemised primary structure)

Modern Methods of Construction, Introducing the MMC definition framework, published by Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government (MHCLG) in 2019 defines 7 categories for MMC:

Category 3 – Pre-manufacturing components (non-systemised primary structure) is defined as:

‘Use of pre-manufactured structural members made of framed or mass engineered timber, cold rolled or hot rolled steel or pre-cast concrete. Members to include load bearing beams, columns, walls, core structures and slabs that are not substantially in-situ workface constructed and are not part of a systemised design.

‘This category although focussed on superstructure elements, would also include sub-structure elements such as pre-fabricated ring beams, pile caps, driven piles and screw piles.’
