Deploying modular housing in the UK: exploring the benefits and risks for the housebuilding industry, our report for Places for People, looks at the multiple benefits of deploying modular housing in the UK and sets out a number of challenges for the housebuilding industry.

The report calls for the government and housebuilders to come together and harness the benefits of modular housing. Scott Black, Places for People's Group Executive Director - Development, emphasised the value of collaboration: 'The more we share, the more we will learn. There do however need to be initiatives to promote this within the housebuilding industry – the Building Better group (NHF 2020) for example. Such plans would provide structures for effective communication, synthesise learning, and help to build networks and collaboration opportunities.'
