The MFS i-Form Solution™
Our P-DfMA approach to MMC

Using a ‘Platform approach to Design for Manufacture & Assembly’ and the latest construction techniques, Masonry Frame Systems has developed their i-Form Solution™ to meet the demands of today’s construction industry.

Particularly relevant for medium to high-rise construction, the MFS i-Form Solution™ typically halves traditional build programmes and is at least 20% cheaper than RC Frame or Metsec Infill.

MFS deliver the complete structural envelope from DPC to weathertight. As part of our service and overall construction we use the most appropriate modern methods of construction to deliver the best complete solutions. These can include any of the platforms, systems, options and elements below.

What is P-DfMA?

P = Platforms, a suite of trusted, tried and tested components, elements & systems

D = Design of a bespoke 'kit of parts' designed to fulfil project criteria, sustainably

fM = For Manufacture off-site, made to measure in automated factory conditions

A = Assembly on-site using much less labour, in less time and with zero waste to landfill
