A digital platform to help developers and builders tender and execute builds more productively together.
Housing associations are increasingly turning to Modern Methods of Construction to help deliver high volumes of homes in the UK. But these more productive manufacturing processes rely on an efficient and effective supply chain. Project IGNITE is a consortium between housing providers, systems developers and experts in modular homes. Together they are creating an integrated digital platform that allows MMC suppliers to fairly tender for new contracts. With the inclusion of the Manufacturing Execution System (MES) functionality, the platform also provides MMC suppliers with the tools to deliver homes more efficiently and effectively, while giving housing providers visibility of the manufacturing and construction process and detailed project status in real-time.
