The Role Of Prefabrication In Australia’s Built Environment

Recently, industry leaders from Australia’s built environment came together at the prefabAUS 2017 conference to discuss the role prefabrication should play in the future of architectural design and construction.

Convened by prefabAUS, the peak body for Australia’s prefabricated building industry, the 2017 conference brought together industry heavyweights to discuss far-reaching trends affecting the built environment in its broadest sense.

A lively industry leaders panel was assembled, comprising Kristin Brookfield of the Housing Industry Association; Sally Capp, executive director of the Victorian chapter of the Property Council of Australia; David Chuter, managing director and CEO of the Melbourne-based Innovative Manufacturing Cooperative Research Centre (IMCRC) ; and Peter Malatt, outgoing president of the Victorian chapter of the Australian Institute of Architects.
