THE COOPERATIVE RESEARCH CENTRES – PROJECTS (CRC-P) GRANT FOR
“INNOVATIVE PREFABRICATED BUILDING SYSTEMS” WAS AWARDED TO:
- SPEEDPANEL® AUSTRALIA LTD
- SPEEDPANEL® INTERNATIONAL LTD
- THE UNIVERSITY OF MELBOURNE
Speedpanel® is pleased to announce that a partnership with the University of Melbourne has been awarded a CRC-P grant of up to $3 million over the next 3 years in the Advanced Manufacturing category to research and develop innovative pre-fabricated building systems.
The CRC-P project aims to develop a new generation of pre-fabricated panel systems for multiple applications such as facades, floor panels and roof panels. The panels will be easily customised and their multi-functionality will widen their application to the building industry. Automated production, modelling and easy on-site installation will ensure reduced building costs and shorter completion times.
Speedpanel® look forward to working with the University of Melbourne and to use the research grant to make a solid contribution to advanced manufacturing of construction products in Australia and overseas.
