Recent surveys of the building industry reveal the number one trend is to pre-fab construction to achieve greater efficiency and keeping schedules on time to save cost.
Designers and builders are expressing greater interest in prefabricated construction with components built in a controlled environment rather than on-site to minimise risk and improve productivity.
This evolving attitude to construction methods and materials is generating high interest for attendance at the Frame Australia 2015 conference and exhibition ‘Building with engineered wood construction systems’ to be held June 1, 2015 at Park Hyatt Melbourne.
Conference Director Kevin Ezard said “Frame 2015 will be the first event held specifically on this topic to assist designers, developers and builders to be involved in presentations and discussion on residential and commercial construction utilising timber and engineered wood systems”.
“We also have the support of major organisations in building design, construction and supply including the Housing Industry Association, Master Builders Association, Planet Ark and WoodSolutions, along with many other industry organisations”.
Kevin added “Attendance by architects, engineers, building professionals, developers and builders will be a major component of the 300 plus delegates anticipated at the conference, which will provide a unique opportunity for suppliers to participate in the exhibition display.
He concluded “With this new construction trend now underway we welcome enquiries for booths in the display area, which has been a very important feature for attendees during the past 16 years of the event”.
