09:05 Towards new export markets and frontiers for Australian modular construction companies, manufacturers & component suppliers – Strategies, Industry Blueprint, Market Rollout Plans, Financing and Incentive Schemes, Profiting from the global tiny homes movement 
The Australian Federal Government is backing Australia’s manufacturing and building & construction sectors, with support for the prefabricated building industry. Up to $2 million will be spent developing a new collaborative lab to help manufacturers design innovative new prefab buildings that are more eco-friendly, affordable and can significantly reduce times for construction. The lab will support work on tiny houses, larger homes and offices and strengthen Australia’s position in the global prefabricated building market. Another $4 million has been committed to fund the Australian Research Council Training Centre for Advanced Manufacturing of Prefabricated Housing. This sector represents 3-5% of Australia’s $150 billion construction industry and could grow to 15% by 2025, creating 20,000 new Australian jobs and adding $30 billion to the economy.

09:15 Case Study: Aveo Norwest, Australia’s Award-Winning, CLT Building Was Completed 13 Weeks Earlier Than Scheduled 
Aveo Norwest was originally conceived withconventional design and construction methods in mind.Its builders turned to CLT instead, utilizing a hybridconstruction process that combined CLT slabs and wallswith glulam beams and structural steel. The superiorityof this approach quickly emerged: the Aveo project wasnot only completed 13 weeks earlier than scheduled,but generated 70% less on-site waste and 2,700 tonsless CO2 emissions than a conventional constructionproject. In addition, Aveo’s builders enjoyed a reducedneed for transport and heavy machinery thanks to CLT’soverall lower mass. The Aveo Norwest tower won theSustainability category at the 2018 Australian TimberDesign Awards, and stands as a prime example of theuse of CLT in not just building better buildings, butbuilding buildings better. Jackson Teece is the Architectof Aveo Norwest.

14:45 Strategic Lean Thinking and Supply Chain Management best practices for the Prefabrication Sector
Two simultaneous trends are emerging in construction globally as increasingly fragmented traditional supply chains struggle to improve productivity and manage quality; these are prefabrication and the re-emergence of vertically integrated supply chains. In both cases, lean production thinking and cross disciplinary integration are key to achieving successful outcomes. This presentation reviews global trends and explains why they are occurring, and presents a case for the use of lean thinking and supply chain management practices as necessary prerequisites for a future ready, efficient construction industry

The Clement Canopy is 40-storeys tall and offers housing in the heart of a residential and student zone in Singapore. The buildings consist of two towers measuring 459 feet each – the tallest to be built in modular concrete. Clement Canopy is made up of 1,899 modules and contains 505 luxury residential apartments. Most of the project was manufactured offsite before the modules were assembled on-site. By industrializing and building 50% of the project offsite, loss of time due to poor on-site weather conditions was mitigated. Each module can also be manufactured under strict quality control, treatments, and defects can be managed prior to handover. The team estimates that using the method, on-site waste can be reduced by 70%.

15:30 Future of Affordable Housing With Pre-Fabrication: The Global Tiny Homes Movement: Revolutionizing Australian housing With Flat Pack Houses That Cost Just $15,000  
Australia’s recent housing crisis found an unusual answer in flat pack housing. Unable or unwilling to climb the property ladder, people began looking into trendy DIY ‘micro-homes’ that can be assembled for just $15,000 in 2 days. Miniature flat pack homes serve as perfect examples of prefabricated construction and its potential for low-cost, low-impact housing. With just an electric screwdriver and elbow grease, homeowners can build their own all-in-one living space containing bedroom, kitchen and bathroom, complete with prefab steel frames, glass sliding doors, light fittings, insulation, floorboards and cladding. Some flat pack houses even incorporate solar panels and rainwater catchments for power and water off the grid, as well as wheels or skids for a truly portable home.

09:15 Case Study: Aveo Norwest, Australia’s Award-Winning, CLT Building Was Completed 13 Weeks Earlier Than Scheduled 
Aveo Norwest was originally conceived withconventional design and construction methods in mind.Its builders turned to CLT instead, utilizing a hybridconstruction process that combined CLT slabs and wallswith glulam beams and structural steel. The superiorityof this approach quickly emerged: the Aveo project wasnot only completed 13 weeks earlier than scheduled,but generated 70% less on-site waste and 2,700 tonsless CO2 emissions than a conventional constructionproject. In addition, Aveo’s builders enjoyed a reducedneed for transport and heavy machinery thanks to CLT’soverall lower mass. The Aveo Norwest tower won theSustainability category at the 2018 Australian TimberDesign Awards, and stands as a prime example of theuse of CLT in not just building better buildings, butbuilding buildings better. Jackson Teece is the Architectof Aveo Norwest.

12:00 Designing and Constructing an autonomous CLT house in Ceres Geelong, Victoria: CLT Case Study of a Farm and a House 
  • The CLT and Glulam were all prefabricated and assembled on site
  • The pavilions are designed to emulate the existing boulders on the site. The clustered pavilion concept was deduced to deflect the strong wind turbulence with North exposure maximization. Bringing in nature and some of the existing ruins was an important factor for the project. The scattered stones from the remain of the existing late 1800 house are used as supporting walls for the internal stairs.
  • Prefabricated off site CLT and Glulam renewable timber was chosen not only for the structure of these pavilions but as a whole construction material for the house. 30kw Solar panels off the grid are being installed backed by stored batteries’ system to power the house, farm and vehicles. 80,000 litres water tank has been placed to harvest rainwater from the roofs backed by 2 large existing dams.
