We provide high quality building solutions for both temporary and permanent applications across the public and private sectors for healthcare, education, defence, commercial, infrastructure, construction and residential markets.


Premier Residential Accommodation System

Two types of modules are manufactured – line-loaded and post and beam. Line- loaded modules are constructed of Light Gauge Steel (LGS). The LGS panels utilised in the construction of the line-loaded modules and the infill panels for the beam and post modules are currently outsourced for manufacture.

The panels are assembled by Premier Modular to form the modules. The line-loaded modules are used for low rise housing (1-3 storeys).

For small mid-rise projects (4-7 storeys), the residential modules will be line-loaded, arranged around hot rolled steel post and beam core elements for the stair and lift. On higher buildings (8-10 storeys), the modules will be post and beam construction with LGS infill, with a concrete stair, lift core and risers.

Durability Assessment: Minimum of 60 years

Limits of Scope

  • Maximum 10 storeys subject to structural analysis.
  • Bottom members in contact with foundations/sub-structure must be fully isolated from contact with moisture from the ground or external sources.
  • Masonry wall cladding cavities should be minimum 50mm wide and ventilated.
  • Conventional cladding, such as timber cladding, should have a minimum 25mm drained and ventilated back cavity.
  • Rendered external thermal insulation systems and/or insulated brick slip cladding systems applied to steel-framed structures must have a minimum 15mm drained back- cavity.
  • Adequate sub-floor ventilation must be maintained to the void below the ground floor.
  • The floor void below the ground storey modules must be sealed to prevent moisture entering the void (membrane + concrete oversite)
  • Premier Modular must be contracted for the design, manufacture, supply and erection of the structures.
  • A chartered structural engineer suitably experienced in the design of this type of structure must be sub-contracted for the structural analysis and design
