Building the Prefab Schools of the Future

by Dr David Heath and Dr Tharaka Gunawardena, University of Melbourne - Prefab technology is driving the development of new classrooms in Australia that are a world away from the old “portables” you may remember.

Access to schools with high-quality classrooms and safe learning environments is something every parent wants and every child needs. And as our education needs rapidly expand, the modular classroom looks set to play a leading role in our learning environment.
