Modular Construction in the Resources Sector in Western Australia: Current Practices and Strategies for Improvement
The resources industry in Western Australia (WA) is going through a significant boom period with an estimated $180b of projects currently being undertaken or in the planning stages. These projects provide substantial opportunity for involvement of WA industries and services.
This report written by Dr. Martin West for the Department of Commerce and Industry Capability Network (ICN) highlights the advantages and disadvantages of modular construction, the methods needed to create a successful modularisation strategy and the reasons as to why construction and mining companies in Western Australia are currently facing the question: to modularise, or not to modularise.
