Outreach Development Pty Ltd is a member of the Outreach Group which includes Outreach System Pte Ltd in Singapore and Outreach Australia (Beijing) Co Ltd in China. Outreach System Pte Ltd is an engineering technology company focusing on system optimisation and re-engineering and their implementation in computer software. Adapting the resources available in Outreach System, an innovative building methodology that embraces cutting edge computer technology and new materials is developed to allow the efficient creation of a superior house shell for the under 3-storey residential home sector. The new methodology intimately integrated computer aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology into the building process, as well as re-design work flow to improve "factory fabrication" to "on-site installation" work ratio, leading to greatly improved productivity per unit labour. Directly and indirectly, the new building methodology leads to the creation of better homes, measured in terms of desirable performance criteria such as thermal, water and acoustic barrier, visual impact, physical touch and feel, durability, maintenance, security and safety. Yet all these are achieved at an lower overall building cost, directly benefiting home owners. (Click here for more information)
And finally, while the methods and materials are an innovative integration of the best practices and resources from around the world, the key structure of each Australian home is fabricated by our Australian mates right here in our Malaga factory.
