OUR NEXT PREFABNZ EVENTJoin us at PrefabNZ's Auckland Event - June 25, BuildNZ / DesignEX, ASB Showgrounds, Ellerslie
Read about past PrefabNZ Events that we have hosted, as well as upcoming PrefabNZ Events and related industry events of interest, here and around the world.PrefabNZ has held a number of successful events and there are many more planned for the future. The events have been attended by a wide range of people from the design and construction industry including architects, designers, engineers, distributors, manufacturers, contractors, researchers and policy-makers.
As well as events hosted by PrefabNZ we want to keep you in the loop on other events happening in New Zealand and internationally. If you have an event of interest please let us know at email@example.com
CPD PointsPrefabNZ Workshops and Behind-the-Scenes Tours carry Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points for registered architects (approx. 30-40 for half-day events) and 4 Department of Building and Housing Licensed Building Practitioner (DBH LBP) points. Other CPD points are allocated by associations or self-allocated, as in the case of IPENZ members.
What to expectWorkshops consist of an introductory prefab presentation from PrefabNZ, a series of short and inspiring presentations from industry representatives, an informative session on upcoming market and development opportunities and interactive focus groups discussing topical prefab questions. These events are half-price for PrefabNZ members.
Behind-the-Scenes events offer a rare opportunity to see first-hand prefab in action. This is your chance to visit the manufacturing floor or construction site of key projects in the New Zealand prefab industry. There are often a series of presentations related to the site visit, as well as supplementary presentations of interest. These events are half-price for PrefabNZ members.

What you want from future PrefabNZ events
In a recent survey the top five things that people wanted out of PrefabNZ events were:
- Case studies on a residential prefab and offsite construction
- Site visit to the factory floor of a prefab / offsite manufacturing facility
- Site visit to a recently completed building that uses innovative prefab
- Research and development – bringing new products to the market
- Site visit to see and discuss a number of prefab buildings side-by-side
We have taken these suggestions on board and are tailoring our future events to give our members what they want. Do you have suggestions or ideas for PrefabNZ events? We’d like to hear them. Tell us at firstname.lastname@example.org
