Perth prefab house sets benchmark for the future of building

Perth-based wall systems manufacturer Pro9 Global is on track to significantly cut the average build time and cost of a residential home.

The prefab company is two months ahead of schedule, compared to traditional construction methods, at its first residential housing project in Woodvale, Perth.

“Pro9 Global is seeking to be a world leader in the precision manufacture of smart wall systems for better living. With our first build we have proven our system is both time and cost efficient,” said Managing Director Daniel Jukic.

The Pro9 Global Structural Wall System has undergone extensive testing in Australia and overseas to receive the coveted CodeMark certification. It’s one of the few lightweight systems that complies with the Building Code of Australia.

“We want to help people build better and more affordable houses in Australia. As importantly, we are going to produce our wall systems in Australia, creating Australian jobs,” said Mr Jukic.

 

“When it comes to buying a home, people want a quality product. We see local manufacture as a key differentiator for our Pro9 Global wall systems,” said Mr Jukic.

The Pro9 Global wall systems shift construction away from the worksite to a controlled factory environment to minimise site waste and onsite errors.

“Prefabricated homes are the way of the future. We will manufacture in our factory to design specification to speed up the building process on site,” said Mr Jukic.

The Pro9 Global system is rated BAL-FZ which makes it suitable for extreme bushfire areas, in addition to having high thermal insulation properties for harsh Australian weather conditions.

“We see applications for our systems across all forms of residential housing including social as well as regional and remote construction,” said Mr Jukic.

The first build was attended by major project builders, architects and social housing administrators.

Pro9 Global expects its Australian manufacturing plant will be fully operational next year.
