Abstract The reason for the rapid development of the modular construction industry in the UK and Europe is shifts in housing preferences and subsequent changes in the rental market, on top of the shortage of skilled workers and the rise in labor costs at the construction site. A similar trend in the domestic housing market would be an opportunity for the modular construction industry to make a big leap forward and a good opportunity to lay the foundation for the advancement of the construction industry. Therefore, this study proposed the precast concrete claddings as a way to overcome fire-rating issue of the mid-highrise modular housing construction and set out a design guideline of precast concrete panel for designers and manufacturers based on construction case studies and manufacturers information in the UK and Europe.
