Cooperative Research Centres Projects (CRC-P)
We have successfully partnered with large construction companies, developers and suppliers of building materials and construction systems to win CRC-P grants for: Innovative Prefabricated Building Systems; CRC-P for Advanced Manufacturing of High Performance Building Envelope Systems; and CRC-P for Advanced Manufacturing and Construction of Smart Building Modules.
These CRC-P grants support short-term, industry-led collaborations to develop new technologies, products and services that deliver tangible outcomes for the Australian construction industry.
Asia-Pacific Prefab Innovation Centre
This is an extension of the Asia-Pacific Research Network for Resilient Affordable Housing. It focuses on developing new low-cost, lightweight and durable prefabricated building materials and systems. The centre will become a regional R&D hub, accelerating technology uptake and providing opportunities to work with partners in a $5-trillion housing and infrastructure market.
ARC Training Centre (CAMP.H)
This centre aims to unlock the potential growth of Australia’s prefabricated building industry by creating a cooperative training system between industry and universities. It has four university and 12 industry partners collaborating on breakthrough product and process innovations for eco-friendly, prefabricated housing, with the potential to deliver employment growth and increase product and service exports.
Building 4.0 CRC
Through deep collaboration and new technologies of the 4th industrial age, Building 4.0 CRC will catapult the industry into an efficient, connected and customer-centric future. This will deliver better buildings at lower cost and the human capacity to lead this future industry.
