Prefab Housing Solutions for Bushfire & Disaster Relief

This project aims to develop prefab housing designs that are fire safety compliant and resilient to different natural hazards, low cost and sustainable for both temporary and long-term accommodation.

The team will bring together the leading experts in the field to develop prefab housing solutions for bushfire & disaster relief in Australia and to provide recommendations and strategies for improving disaster preparedness.

A coordinated approach by the AMGC Prefab Innovation Hub will be used, and the research team will work closely with the other projects on Sustainability and DfMA.

The outcome will also contribute to lowering the carbon footprint of housing in Australia and improving the resilience of building industry against natural hazards.
