Designs are based on maximizing the flexibility and speed of construction of lightweight building methods and utilize steel-framed walls and timber truss roofs clad in corrugated iron.

One of these designs has been selected for construction in the Kimberley’s largest display village at Landcorp’s first land release at Waranyjarri Estate, Broome North.
