In Australia, the building industry has long been dominated by traditional brick homes. As a result, myths and misconceptions have prevented many from seeing the benefits in modular building solutions.

Australia’s modular building industry is wildly sprouting opportunities and is ,according to PrefabAUS and Wood and Grieve Engineers’s director John Lucchetti, “gaining strong momentum in its push to modernise Australia’s construction industry”, meaning traditional building methods are set to change.

And for good reasons too.
Modular leads the way with:

Modular homes are constructed offsite in factories, using a method we call ‘system-built’ construction. These purpose built factories allow construction to continue without onsite hindrances like weather. Once the design, and council approval is complete, construction happens in little as 10 – 12 weeks.

Warren MacGregor’s industry publication, Changing the face and Place of Construction’[3], he makes the design benefits clear. “The disadvantages of modular construction were easier to identify in the past, when rigid design parameters and ‘boxy’ dimensions were commonly-cited criticisms. … Such shortcomings are quickly receding with flexibility now a key feature”.
