PrefabAUS Conference 2014 Announcement


Prefabricating Australia: growing our off-site construction sector

PrefabAUS is delighted to announce our Inaugural Conference in Melbourne from 11 - 13 August 2014.

Australia, along with many countries around the world, is changing the way it builds. 

As the off-site construction sector begins to expand rapidly, this Conference is timed to bring together key representatives from all related areas for the first time; from architecture, engineering, manufacturing, material supply, property development and construction, universities, government agencies and client representatives.     

This 150 delegate event will feature an influential line-up of national and international speakers and cover all approaches to off-site construction, from commercial to residential and across all key infrastructure sectors including health and education.   The Conference will include practical factory tours, site visits and inspiring case studies, and speakers will tackle and address key issues facing the industry.

Our first conference will be a perfect opportunity to make new relationships that last.

  • Dr Masa Noguchi, ZEMCH and The University of Melbourne
