Our research centres
Our short and long-term industry-led collaborations develop new sustainable 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.
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.
