MMC and defects in technicolour

Modular construction is very much part of our next generation housing stock. To promote its take-up it needs support structures, very similar to the technology that assists with the new ways in which we are working today. One of these key support structures is the structural defects warranty. Here alongside construction legal experts Foot Anstey, we explore how various stakeholders approach a structural defects warranty, looking in turn at the point of view of each party throughout the process.

This article considers how a structural warranty works within the context of a project incorporating MMC, the role of accreditation and how stakeholders can navigate the various considerations in relations to defects.
