ColLab Event 3 focuses on modular construction
On 1 October 2019 Inhabit hosted the third event in the colLab series in the Melbourne Office. The colLab series encourages conversations, shares experiences and contributes towards a better built environment.
The theme for the event was Is the Future Modular?, a discussion about Modular and Prefabricated Construction systems and whether they are the future of a more sustainable and efficient building model.
Architects, engineers and builders gathered for a presentation by George Argyrou, Director of Hickory Group, Rudy Darmawan of Rothelowman Architects and Inhabit Regional Design Leader – Australia and New Zealand Peter Buffett. Their presentations were followed by a lively discussion about how we can bridge the gap between architects in the concept phase through to builders in the construction phase through further knowledge sharing.
Inhabit is planning future events in the series, including a discussion on achieving Net Zero emissions targets.
