Advancing Modular Construction with Damien Crough – Member Lean In session
2 Jul 2020 at 12:00 pm AEST
In this session, we will hear from Damien Crough, Founding Director & Board Chair of PrefabAU, the peak industry body for Offsite Construction in Australia. Damian will share his extensive experience in modular construction.
In 2007 Damien began working with renowned Australian architect Nonda Katsalidis and Hickory Group to develop and bring to market the prefabricated Unitised BuildingTM system. Damien’s skills, knowledge and experience with the UBTM System were used to grow and develop the business in Australia, where he was the driving force behind new projects in his role as Hickory’s Business Development Manager. The growth of the modular bathroom business branded SYNC, was awarded Large Manufacturer of the Year 2015 by the Victorian Government.
In 2014 Damien established Advanced Offsite Group, a specialist consultancy which enables clients to improve and enter new markets with existing offsite technologies. Damien also works with clients that are new to the Offsite industry to identify opportunities for the use of the Offsite supply chain and effectively incorporate these elements into the design, procurement and project execution phases of construction projects.
In 2018 Damien joined Schiavello to grow and develop their modular bathroom pod business. With a current Research Project with the University of Melbourne, Schiavello bathroom pods are being designed into Student accommodation, health care and residential projects.
