It is the purpose of this research project to analyse the drivers and the rationale for the use of Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) and Off-Site Production (OSP) in educational developments in the south west since academisation and appraise their impact on the deliverables. For the purpose of this study we will use the BRE (2009) definition of MMC:- "a range of processes and technologies which involve prefabrication, offsite assembly and various forms of supply chain specification".

Question Title

* 1. In the south west since academisation how many projects have involved the use of MMC 

Question Title

* 2. What was your role during this development

Question Title

* 3. Which Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) or Off Site Production (OSP) construction techniques have you use

Question Title

* 4. Does the size of the project have any bearing on the use of MMC?

Question Title

* 5. Considering the main deliverables of the development, please rank the rationale for the use of MMC in educational developments (please rank in order of importance with 1 being the most important and 3 being least important).

Question Title

* 6. Considering the drivers for the use of MMC in the construction of educational developments please rank the following. (please rank in order of importance with 1 being the most important and 6 being least important).

Question Title

* 7. In your opinion, what are the main barriers to using off-site construction techniques? (please rank in order of importance with 1 being most influential and 5 being least influential).

Question Title

* 8. Do you agree with the statement: "using MMC causes more front-loading of costs specifically design costs"?

Question Title

* 9. To what extent has the availablity and use of MMC influenced the way that educational developments are designed?

Question Title

* 10. Academies and Multi Academy Schools Trusts  (MAST) are funded differently. Academies have to bid to the Condition Improvement Fund (CIF), whereas MAST are given a formulaic amount of monies. To what extent does the MAST funding pathway improve efficiency of building by giving assurances that monies are available?
