About the Forum

The prefab industry is currently at a critical tipping point, as it waits for the New Zealand government’s building reforms to get underway. Prefab is expected to play a major role in delivering the 100,000 affordable homes planned. Offsite manufacturing is mission-critical to delivering the country’s housing and urban development programme, raise productivity, delivering the quality, volume and price people can afford.

The 4th New Zealand Modular Construction & Pre-Fabrication Forum will provide the most timely, important platform to accelerate the momentum for the further adoption of modular technologies & offsite pre-fabrication, new and more long-term OSM industry partnerships & collaboration, and the advent of a new housing and urban development authority.

This forum will bring together local and international industry experts to showcase successful case studies including homestar-6 rating affordable homes, CLT-built tall commercial towers, prefabricated schools, hospitals and aged care centres, transportable homes, helping to strengthen and enhance the uptake of modular construction methodology in New Zealand’s construction industry.

The event will be attended by international prefab experts, master builders, offsite manufacturing practitioners, developers, building material suppliers and prefab services tradies, making it an excellent networking opportunity that is not to be missed!
