For Fabricators

We are experts in Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA), timber fabrication models and shop drawings, including in machine-readable, factory-friendly formats to drive automated equipment.

Currently planning an OSM product or factory?

Prefabrication factories are manufacturing operations and need to be carefully engineered around your desired prefab product range. 

From Product to Process.


No matter whether start-up or already in production, we help to develop your prefab system, standard details, and then tailor the factory around this product.

At the core of this process is prefabrication as a higher quality and more efficient alternative to traditional construction. The level of automation and technology in your factory will emerge in this process, depending on your prefab product, the volumes and price point you would like to achieve. There is no one size fits all when it comes to prefab factories.

Our team have hands-on experience working in factories in New Zealand and Germany.
