11:10 AM Panel Discussion: A Cost-Benefit Analysis on Student Accommodation: The Question of Quality, Cost and Convenience

Modular construction has become a well-known choice for university campuses worldwide. With modular buildings constructed off-site, they see 60-90% of construction complete within a factory. This mitigates weather delays, clean-up time and construction set-up. Because of this, most schools of thought find it convenient for companies needing to build large structures in a time sensitive environment.

Listen to this expert panel as they discuss their experiences with modular and prefabricated structures, with a cost-benefit analysis on ways your business can save time and money through this construction process. 


2:10 PM Innovating Student Residencies and Development: Integrating this to Your Campus Masterplan

Tim Crawshaw, Practice Director at BVN, will present a case study on the work him and his team performed at ANU’s Union Court campus. Using prefab timber structures, they worked to ensure the recently rebuilt student accommodation met the speed, cost and quality requirements that were necessary in making the redevelopment a success.

Hear how using innovative and modern construction tools can help your student residency become a leader in this space, incorporating these expectations into your campus masterplan for future business planning.

  • Using innovative approaches to meet the design requirements of on and off-campus accommodation
  • The process behind creating a new ground plan to revitalize your residency 
  • Having cost-effective approaches without diminishing design quality
