PS1920-029 – SCR Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) Audit – Eco System & Opportunity

The SCRMCA is located at the strategic heart of the country. South Yorkshire members of the SCRMCA are constituent members and comprised of Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield. The South Yorkshire are is the focus on this report. The city region is on track to achieve its goals and has shown a gain of 37,000 jobs between 2014, when it launched its Growth Plan, and 2017.  Activity led by the Sheffield City Region Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and Mayoral Combined Authority has contributed 16,000 new jobs to the economy and leveraged approximately £318 million of private sector investment.

The MMC market is set to be a big growth industry and encompasses activities that SCR already has strengths in such as construction, research and innovation. MMC is highlighted in the refreshed Strategic Economic Plan as an area that could deliver growth and increased productivity for the region.  All areas of the country are exploring innovative ways of building new homes but SCR has the ambition to be the national centre of excellence and to become the ‘go to place’ for MMC. SCRMCA require support to understand the scale of the opportunity, its assets and the action required to support this ambition. The intention behind this piece of work is to define the opportunity that MMC could present for the 4 South Yorkshire authorities in the SCR (Barnsley, Rotherham, Doncaster and Sheffield), define the eco-system that already exists within the region and set out the steps SCRMCA could take to nurture and support this emerging market.

The SCR MMC Audit will need to cover the following areas: Setting out the wider context; Mapping the SCR eco-system;  Growth potential for the MMC market in SCR; Skills and training audit; Engagement with key stakeholders; Baselining Data; Detailed SWOT analysis; and an Outline roadmap.
