L&Q, one of the UK's largest housing associations and developers, has announced it is scaling up its off-site ambitions and has developed its own Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) strategy.

Last year, L&Q made a commitment to deliver 100,000 new homes with like-minded partners over the next 10 years. In order to meet this ambition, it established a Product Innovation team to explore new ways of working.

There are plans to deliver all of its new build homes using some form of MMC by 2025. Next month, L&Q will launch its first range of pre-built product designs - including bathroom units and balconies, which will then be produced next year.

Later in the Spring, it will build its first off-site manufactured homes outside of London.

By 2025, L&Q plans for all of its new builds to feature some aspect of MMC. By 2028 it aims to place its first entirely off-site manufactured home on a site.
