Modern Methods of Construction Brought to Perth

A building revolution is beginning in Western Australia as builders reconsider their traditional double brick walls and concrete suspended slab model for double storey houses.

The HIA's State Outlook Report has forecast a 21.3 per cent decline in new dwelling builds for the 2015/16 financial year, with roughly 24,500 new homes to be constructed. This followed a record year for builds in 2014/15, when more than 31,000 dwellings were started. The report also predicted new constructions would continue to contract for a further two years, bottoming out at approximately 20,800. Residential construction has many drivers. The WA boom population growth of up to 90,000 per year during the past seven years has come back down by about two thirds, and consequently the growth in house prices has slowed or even slipped into negative territory in many areas.

What are builders to do in a contracting market but find cost savings and compete on price. Among the efficiencies available is to change the way they build. Suspended concrete slab construction in Western Australia has for a long time, been the most expensive of any state in Australia.

As a result, real incentive exists for builders in WA to change the traditional masonry construction paradigm in favour of the timber frame construction methodology that we have come to expect and accept on the eastern seaboard.
