Perth prefab house sets benchmark for the future of building

Perth-based building systems manufacturer Pro9 Global is on track to cut the average build time of a residential home by at least one third.

The prefab company is 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 building 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 CodeMark and CertMark 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. More importantly we are going to produce our wall systems in Australia, creating Australian jobs,” said Mr Jukic.

Pro9 Global is highly advanced with plans to build a manufacturing plant in Australia after successfully completing an $8 million capital raise in January.

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

 

The Pro9 Global building 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 to design specification, which is a bit like 3D printing your house in a factory 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 social housing 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 Australia manufacturing plant will be fully operational early next year.
