Volumetric modular - we consider this a key MMC technology for inclusion on the grounds that it substitutes several on-site product applications that typically generate significant waste volumes. These include roof and external wall insulation, roof tiling, brick & blockwork, drylining, on-site cladding and all associated packaging. The technology is well established and there are new developments in high-volume production, notably at Corus' Deeside factory. 2. Timber frame and steel frame flat packs - these are mainly used in housing and are mainly displacing the use of concrete blockwork used for the construction of external wall inner leafs and party walls. The other reasons for including timber frame systems is that demand is growing fast, underpinned by housing shortages in parts of the country, with public sector specification an important influence on demand. 3. Prefabricated kitchen & bathroom pods - this is a growing market, underpinned by demand in fast growing sectors of the single living accommodation (SLA) market which includes MoD garrisons, student residences, Key Worker Living and high-rise apartment blocks. Key waste streams that are likely to be reduced using pods include those generated through the interior fit-out of kitchens and bathrooms, plumbing offcuts, and cemen
