CRC-P for Innovative Prefabricated Building Systems

Project Leader: Tuan Ngo
Sponsors: CRC-P, SpeedPanel Australia Ltd
Primary Contact: A/Prof Tuan Ngo (
Keywords: civil engineering; civil infrastructure; geopolymers; sustainable systems
Disciplines: Infrastructure Engineering
Domains: Optimisation of resources and infrastructure

The aim of the project is to unlock the potential growth of Australia’s prefabricated building industry by creating a co-operative knowledge exchange between Speedpanel and the University of Melbourne.

The project will develop an innovative panelised building system using advanced manufacturing techniques for faster and cheaper construction that will be light-weight, easy to construct, reusable, recyclable, and have better load resistance and a lower carbon footprint.
