What is CoLab?

CoLab is PrefabNZ's annual conference, brimming with interactive site visits, thought provoking presentations and keynote conversations on innovative approaches from local heroes and international experts. It's all about a fun, hands-on experience that will invigorate and motivate you.

PrefabNZ brings you the opportunity to connect and collaborate with inspiring individuals and organisations, to learn about advances in innovative construction and offsite/prefab projects. If you have an interest in the evolution of the design and construction industry then CoLab is your place!

It is your chance to meet like-minded folk and get connected to the heart of the action, have fun and look ahead in our changing construction landscape. We can't wait to see you there!

First international presenter announced: Prof. James Murray-Parkes, Director of the Advisory Committee for the MCCB, on the development of the Handbook for the Design of Modular Structures and what it means for the industry. He's not just a great wrangler of modular expertise, he is also an incredible mathematician, structural engineer, guardian of nurturing future talent, designer of everything from world-record-holding motorbike engines to Perth Stadium's incredible '20T on a point-load' structural system...
