Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) have been around for many years. The use of Timber, Steel and Concrete are also very well documented, and intelligence is robust when designing with such materials. Take a look at the images below to see how we have been working with MMC systems since the early 1900’s.
Frank Lloyd Wright
US Architect designing with Structurally Insulated Panels (SIPs) for his Usonian Houses in the 1930’s. This continued through the 30’s and 40’s with one of Frank’s architectural students (Alden B. Dow), the son of the Dow Chemical Company Founder. SIPs continue to be a highly effective choice for many modular and volumetric buildings across the globe.
John Alexander Brodie
Liverpool Civil Engineer responsible for the Mersey tunnel, also famous for inventing and patenting the football net and was vice President of what now is the RAC, designed and installed Prefabricated Concrete Panels for the Eldonian Village, Liverpool, 1904. He was a pioneer for modular housing projects at the start of the 1900’s.
