The Challenge Cup

Finalist teams and selected competition presentation highlights will be  showcased on The Challenge Cup website along with prizes being awarded to the winning team and to the 2nd & 3rd placed teams!

 

 

The Challenge

The inaugural competition will address the shortage of affordable housing in Australia with offsite construction and prefabrication solutions being ideally placed to develop affordable housing solutions that meet a cost-effective relocation requirement.

The competition’s design concept will address the building life cycle cost equation. With teams instructed to design solutions for a multi-level building design that can be readily modified, delivered in multiple configurations and with maximum flexibility to accommodate more than one façade type. Thus providing for a solution that will be responsive to various site locations over a 50-year period.
