  • expand the manufactured buildings eco-system to improve the ability of business to incorporate advanced technologies and processes within industry

Your input will contribute to the feasibility study findings and help enable modern methods of construction to thrive in Australia.

The workshop facilitator will present a range of key topics for your feedback and advice during the two-hour session. Participants should have senior industry experience in prefabricated construction and/or manufacturing industries.
