Modular construction and prefabrication conference

The sixth Modular Construction and Pre-Fabrication ANZ conference, to be held as a virtual summit from March 27–29, will showcase the latest techniques and technology in modularisation and prefabrication.

According to the organisers, modular construction now accounts for $4.5 billion of Australia’s $150 billion construction industry. The conference will highlight best practices from modular builders that have successfully built modern modular commercial and residential buildings in and out of the region.

The sixth edition of the conference will focus on post COVID-19 market recovery trends, international and well-known Australian offsite manufacturing (OSM) and design for manufacture and assembly (DfMA) exemplars, the industry’s best practices and new innovative techniques, and technologies that will strengthen and enhance the uptake of modular construction methodology in the ANZ construction industry.

Education facilities will also be a focus. The organisers note that rapid population growth in Australia has created strain on education infrastructure, especially the provision of classrooms for schools. This has led to state governments in NSW and Victoria investing in school infrastructure, including the rollout of world-class prefab modular classrooms, with other states and territories set to follow.

“This event, a key industry gathering of international prefab/OSM experts, master builders, offsite manufacturing practitioners, developers (and) suppliers, is an excellent networking opportunity not to be missed,” say the organisers.
