Over half of self builders use Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) and one in two includes a sustainable heat source such as a heat pump in their project, new research shows.

The findings are from the National Custom and Self Build Association’s (NaCSBA) first annual Custom and Self Build Market Report, the most comprehensive assessment of the state of the self build sector to date.
