Prefab Modular Construction will be examined in terms of whether it represents innovation or smart construction. A number of examples will be discussed such as College Square on Swanston, Melbourne and Adelaide Air Traffic Control Tower Projects, La Trobe Student Accommodation, Peppers King Hotel and Collin's House Melbourne, just to name a few. Hickory's use of prefabrication to deliver projects faster and more safely will be outlined. This will include coverage of their award winning project - La Trobe Tower.

The seminar will also cover smart connections in precast concrete. For prefabricated concrete to be competitive it requires load-bearing, adjustable connections that are code compliant and can be installed quickly and efficiently. Examples of innovative methods used in recent projects worldwide will be included. In addition, an overview of current and proposed legislation will be given including an update on part 3 of AS3850 for precast in civil applications and the new ACT Code of Practice for the use of Prefabricated Concrete.
