The heart of Innovative Construction

That’s eight years of relentlessly informing, educating and advocating for offsite or manufactured construction methods, also known as prefabrication, or prefab. Whether you are working in the design and construction industry, are looking to build or are interested in the latest innovations - this is your place!
