Guidance issued for assessing ‘Modern Methods of Construction’

GUIDANCE as to how to assess buildings erected using so-called ‘Modern Methods of Construction’ (MMC) – such as primarily in a factory – has been published.

The guidance is aimed at inspectors and ‘building control’ personnel in local authorities.

Begins the guidance, here: “The purpose of this document is to provide guidance to local authority verifiers and certifiers – as defined under the Building (Scotland) Act 2003 – when assessing building warrant applications and certifying works which use MMC and when assessing the compliance of MMC buildings during construction with the building warrant-approved drawings and regulations.”
