Modern Methods of Construction
Due to our extensive experience in MMC & DfMA construction techniques, we are leaders both nationally and internationally in delivering modular developments, which has led to a detailed understanding of the principles of both design and procurement for projects utilising this method of construction.
MMC developments ranging from low rise housing to taller towers in both seismic, arctic, and marine locations globally have challenged how we develop each solution, and we are continuing to grow our MMC team, including North America, to meet the expanding requirement for this method of construction.
Hive Group work with developers and other offsite manufacturers, working with other design teams for the design and delivery of modular projects around the world. Developed from our ongoing partnerships with modular solutions providers, we have worked together to develop solutions for the residential and hotel industries working with some major developers both privately and at government level to develop modular solutions for most scenarios.
We have been key in the design of many prototype building systems, both in the UK and overseas, with both sustainability and the modularisation of MEP systems as a major driver in both their development. In conjunction with manufacturers of global standing, we have developed new approved connection devices that allow plug and play functionality both horizontally and vertically between modules for all MEP systems, including cabling systems.
We have excellent relationships with a lot of MMC suppliers across the globe which allows us to leverage our knowledge learnt across a whole range of challenges.
Our relationships with some of the leading modular architects and structural engineers allows us to support research & development projects throughout the globe where we can test solutions and new concepts to ensure all the issues with modular delivery can be tested, resolved, and developed.
Collaboration and Communication
Our proposed delivery teams, that specialise in MMC design, put forward on all of our schemes contain very experienced personal, with a particular emphasis towards delivering MMC both in the UK and overseas, having already done so in the UK, Europe, the Middle East and North America.
Our teams are headed by accountable Directors, complete with key delivery personnel, who are managed/co-managed via regular team meetings to share information and constantly ensure our clients objectives are being met and wherever possible, their expectations are being exceeded, as clear lines of communication between all parties are absolutely vital to the success of any project.
Our MMC lead Stuart Cameron has been instrumental in the promotion and development of MMC techniques in building services for solving housing shortfalls and advises developers and local authorities alike, both in the UK and overseas. Stuart has also been part of the design team for many of the current modular MEP systems available today, which has led to us being invited to become members of the Modular Building Institute (MBI) based in Colorado, USA and Stuart being invited to the MBI European Council.
