Failed building inspections can be avoided by following some simple advice.
Next in the prefab construction series we look at potential hybrid systems on offer – specifically hybrid modules + panel systems – from the benefits of standardisation to allowing for individual design elements.
When individual companies improve their productivity, the overall industry productivity is raised. BRANZ has identified performance measures to help our companies become more successful and therefore more productive.
