The GLA’s Open Project System (OPS), which is used to administer the Mayor’s Affordable Homes Programme (AHP), does not currently track information about the number of schemes that have adopted precision manufactured homebuilding (PMH) methods. Officers are currently considering how a new tracking or monitoring regime could be implemented to serve this function in the future.

The Innovation Fund, which forms part of the broader AHP, provides funding for innovative ways of delivering more affordable homes in London – including through the adoption of PMH methods. To date, the Innovation Fund has provided funding to three schemes that utilise PMH methods: Pocket Living, Apex Airspace and the Pan-London Accommodation Collaborative Enterprise (PLACE).
