MMC Strategy for the Ministry of Justice
With a presumption in favour of offsite solutions and a portfolio of future works of £3bn over next 5 years, the Ministry of Justice sought to develop a clear vision and strategic approach to the adoption of Modern Methods of Construction (MMC). Having previously delivered independent, autonomous projects, they required a strategy that would bring about a shift from tactical to cultural adoption, as well as leverage economies of scope and scale to deliver better, faster and greener.
What we did
Akerlof led the Ministry of Justice’s team in formulating a defined vision and strategy. We balanced innovation with pragmatism, ensuring the implementation plan reflected the dynamics of the departmental culture, as well as responding to new policy (namely the Construction Playbook and National Infrastructure Strategy). Akerlof also provided design support for the £2bn New Prisons Programme, drawing up a route-map for standardisation and the adoption of platform solutions to drive repeatability and consistency. Akerlof has been retained by the MoJ to monitor MMC outcomes across the New Prisons Programme, including the calculation of Pre-Manufactured Value (PMV) at each stage of project development.
