The purpose of this report is to review evidence of MMC application in housing with regards to diverse modes of delivery, lending approaches, customer satisfaction and long-term management/maintenance.The report provides a detailed overview of above key areas examined based on evidence sourced. Whilst there are limitations in the evidence reviewed, particularly in relation to empirical work and field studies of built housing, the research discussed provides an account of key issues of relevance to a Housing Association client. Further work is needed to better understand the performance of buildings and resident experiences drawing on Post Occupancy Evaluation methods (POE) specifically related to different modes of delivery in different contexts (urban vs suburban or rural for instance).
