Your invitation to AMGC’s Pre-fab Innovation Hub Industry Workshops

The Hon Karen Andrews, Minister for Industry, Science and Technology, recently announced funding to establish a Pre-fab Innovation Hub.

Designed to strengthen Australia’s position within the global prefabricated building market, the Hub will help manufacturers design innovative prefabricated buildings that utilise advanced manufacturing processes, and are smarter, more affordable, and more eco-friendly.

To kick-start this new project, AMGC will first undertake a feasibility study. The feasibility study will describe the requirements for the establishment of the Hub and will be presented to the Minister for Industry, Innovation and Science in January 2020.

AMGC invites you to attend our upcoming Pre-fab Innovation Hub Industry Workshops to provide valuable input into the feasibility study. Your insights will help enable modern construction methods to thrive in Australia.
