Our Philosophy

FABPREFAB are redefining the place of prefabricated and modular homes in Australia and showcasing it as a better, more sustainable form of building.

Our dwellings are a functional, design-led alternative to conventional on-site construction. One that champions a low environmental and carbon footprint, higher efficiency, and waste minimisation.

As a business, we embody the values we promote. We strive to use locally sourced and Australian-made products and support local manufacturers, industries, and Australian jobs. Evidently, displayed at our facility where front of house and head office is built with environmentally friendly, Australian cross-laminated timber.

Our houses are well-suited to a variety of settings, whether coastal, urban, metropolitan, or regional, with off-grid solutions available. our high-quality designs also offer premium fabricated options to rural or remote areas, which otherwise may not be available given limited resources.

FABPREFAB are helping Australians discover the many benefits of prefab dwellings with smart, refined products made to be enjoyed for years to come.
