The importance of junction details in construction platforms
If modern methods of construction (MMC) are to help bring about long-term change in the construction industry, then getting junction detailing right is essential. Junctions are where different parts of the building connect and are therefore, arguably, the most critical areas when it comes to making ...
What demonstrated savings are possible by adopting P-DfMA?
Platform construction – or, to use its full name, a ‘platform approach to design for manufacture and assembly’ (P-DfMA) is one form of MMC (modern methods of construction). It’s also a different way of thinking about how buildings go together.
It takes its inspiration from the automotiv...
Designing renewable technology into commercial building envelopes
For the UK to meet its target of net zero carbon by 2050, and for the built environment to play its part in helping to reach that goal, renewable technology must play an integrated role in building designs and specifications.
How do you specify a responsible sustainable product?
The declaration of climate and biodiversity emergencies has rightly instilled urgency in all of us to act for the benefit of the planet. In the construction industry, action primarily takes the form of reducing carbon emissions through the operation of buildings. Alongside that, a focus on embodied ...

Platform construction doesn’t mean loss of design freedom
How does the certainty offered by platform construction benefit architects and specifiers?
By adopting construction platforms as the basis for building design, architects and specifiers can benefit from knowing that the selected components will deliver their expected performance.
Using a common platform to construct different building types
How can a common platform approach address the needs of different building types and sectors within construction?
Through the Construction 2025 strategy, the UK government has made funding available to develop modern methods of construction (MMC). It has also committed to increased procurement of...
How is the Construction Playbook promoting industry change?
Does the Construction Playbook show that government is serious about helping the construction industry to change for the better?
Developed based on conversations with the UK’s construction sector, the Construction Playbook is a document setting out how the government will work with the industry...
Entstehungsprozess: ein Blick hinter die Kulissen - Umformung Bandende
Valast® 450 ist der stärkste Stahl, der bisher im Warmwalzwerk von Tata Steel in IJmuiden produziert wurde. Daher musste das Entwicklungsteam bei der Herstellung und Verarbeitung von Valast einige Herausforderungen meistern.
How can composite floor decks be protected in aggressive environments?
Steel profiles used in composite floor decks are generally hot dip galvanising as standard. When installed over an aggressive environment, however, additional painted coatings are applied to provide further protection and help ensure the composite floor meets its intended design life.
Metal roof decks are a versatile and lightweight structural component, onto which a range of thermal, acoustic and weatherproofing solutions can be installed to provide a complete roof system. Metal decks are not confined to flat roofing, and can receive slate or tile finishes in addition to single ...
