MODULAR DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION – Collaboration and Co-creation.

Australia’s modular construction and prefabrication industry is growing steadily, with an ambition to achieve 10% in the market within the next 5 years. This is with increasing emphasis on intelligent materials, components and subassemblies and the integration of these elements into design, procurement and construction.

Fostering Collaboration through the sharing of best practices and challenges and spearheading the Co-creation of new solutions and ideas to overcome barriers and bring the modular construction industry future forward.

Please join us for our networking event in Brisbane, with informative presentations, an update on prefabAUS by our CEO Warren McGregor, followed by networking over canapés and drinks.

Discover best practices from modular builders who have successfully built modern modular commercial and residential buildings in and out of the region.
