Supervisor

Co-supervisor

Partner organisations

Funded by

  • Cooperative Research Centre Project (CRC-P) for Innovation in Advanced Multi-Storey Housing Manufacture

The project examines the recent phenomenon of DfMA as a concept and practice in the discourse around the future of building.

The research investigates:

  • DfMA in its original manufacturing context;
  • how it has been transposed to the field of building production;
  • the challenges resulting from contextual differences in this translation across industries;
  • and how we might move towards an approach more suited to the production of buildings.
