The Australian portable and prefabricated building industry relies on several factors including fast build times, lower costs and flexible styling to drive their business.
Many key builders in the industry depend on Studco products for steel wall framing, roof structures, external facades, door jambs and window reveals among many more. Studco’s building systems have been adopted widely in various projects from the indigenous settlements in far north WA to the quiet resorts of southern Tasmania, with the quality products making construction easier, faster and less costly.
Studco's range of building products has found use in a broad range of projects including portable and prefab homes; mining communities; container dwellings; energy-efficient workspaces; pop-up, high-rise buildings; remote location construction; tourist accommodation; bathroom pods and modules; low-cost export housing; school buildings; and mobile offices and site facilities.
In one particular project, a portable building manufacturer was facing problems with heavy structural steel sections due to the cumbersome handling and transport. Studco's creative engineers were able to replace all the structural steel lintels and jambs with the lightweight HEDA system, which didn’t need welding and therefore, eliminated the OHS issues associated with excessive welding fumes.
