The project demonstrates how building off-site can encourage sustainability, improve quality control and speed up delivery.
Mirvac Design Director Michael Wiener
said modular construction provides sustainable benefits in a short amount of time.
“Modular construction has allowed us to produce an innovative, high quality display suite in a very short time frame, with superior sustainability benefits,” said Mr Wiener.
“We see a lot of potential in applying it to residential development to drive greater satisfaction for clients and are working with the industry on modular building projects to fully explore its potential.
“The Wharf’s Entrance display suite is our most sophisticated display of modular construction to date and is just the first of more of these types of projects to come.”
The display suite provides a preview of Mirvac’s final project at Yarra’s edge in which it will build an apartment tower consisting of 228 apartments, 11 Wharfside Residences luxury waterfront homes and 7 Cargo Home offices.
Modular construction is a new trend in the construction industry worth a total of $1.4 billon which is expected to rise to over 10 per cent in the coming years.
