Focus Area 2C – Assessment and optimisation for Circular MMC at product level

This focus area aims to develop guidelines for improved off-site manufacturing practice in the pre-cast industry, for components manufactured using different levels of automation.

This research project will start in summer 2022, further information will be shared in due course. In the meantime, we welcome interest from industry and government in continuing to shape the direction of the project, so do not hesitate to contact us at icec-mcm@ucl.ac.uk
