Thesis Topic/Title
Prefabricated Modular Housing (Building Manufacturing) Research Projects


These projects involve critically evaluating and benchmarking housing designs and manufacturing systems that are widely disseminated within the residential building and architecture industry both in Australia and overseas. Limited engineering approach to the design of structures, functionality and purpose, embodied and servicing energies, water and waste management etc., has resulted in that most modular houses being perceived as second class or viewed as cheap "fibro". These projects aim to provide a comprehensive overview of modular housing designs and manufacturing systems, and recommend (and test) a systematic approach to industrialising the manufacturing of housing solutions.
