What DFMA Really Means



This webinar features a panel of experts from the UK and Australia. The panel is moderated by CIOB MMC Lead Oceania, Martin Fenn, who is also an expert on the topic.

The discussion focusses on what Design for Manufacturing and Assembly (DfMA) really is and how it fits in with Modern Methods of Construction (MMC). How this construction process differs from more traditional methods, and a comparison of how this is shaping the industry on a more global perspective.

CIOB Conservation Conference

New ideas for tough times

The theme of this year's annual conference is balancing conservation needs against rising costs. It is ideal for professionals involved in historic or traditional buildings as well as homeowners who are embarking on their own project.

We have drawn together leading experts from the UK and Europe who will give delegates the inside track on how these projects were successfully delivered and how they can apply what was learned to their own decision making.
