INTRODUCTION

WHY PRE-FABRICATE?

LETS FACE IT. PERTH IS OBESSED WITH CONCRETE. AND NOT JUST CONCRETE THAT CAN BE EASILY TAKEN APART, BUT WE HAVE GROWN ACCUSTOMED TO SEEING BIG CHUNKY CONCRETE FACADES AND WALLS. WE ARE ALWAYS THINKING IN TERMS OF LONGEVITY AND SUSTAINABILITY BUT WHAT DOES CONCRETE REALLY HAVE TO OFFER? ESPECIALLY THAT OF RESIDENTIAL HOUSING AND COMMERCIAL PRECINCTS. DON’T WE WANT TO BE ABLE TO HAVE THE FREEDOM TO PACK AND MOVE OUR HOUSES TO WHERE WE WISH? WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO FLEXIBLE LIVING ? THIS IS NOT ANOTHER MANIFESTO.
