Mirvac – Doncaster Project
The excitement for FutureFit continues at Mirvac’s Tullamore project. The old Doncaster East Golf Course is being transformed into a 800 block master planned community. These two rows of near complete ‘Townhouses’ clearly illustrate the high quality finish able to be achieved by using FutureFit Panelised Building System. Quality and speed of construct are cornerstones of the DWTT – FutureFit system.
Warragul Project pre-plyed for Cultured Stone
The 140mm wide frames were supplied lined with 9mm plywood (no noggins required) ready to be clad in heavy Cultured Stone. Frames were craned into position using our engineered lifting system. The roof is a two piece top hat system to be sheaved in shingles.
Single Storey FutureFit Project – Warragul
This recent single storey project delivered ‘lockup’ within a week utilising FutureFit and delivered another highly satisfied customer. The video highlights our speed as the FutureFit Panelisation method quickly overtakes conventional methods being used next door.
“Good evening Team DWTT, Travis and I would like to thank you for the fantastic job you all did. This was no easy feat with poor parking, a tight site and steep embankment furthermore in the rain, hail and wind. Let’s bring this home (excuse the pun) by Monday to lock up!”
(Lock up was achieved before Monday)

DWTT – FutureFit™ develops Closed Wall Panel Prototype
December 2015 saw the successful completion of DWTT – FutureFit™ first fully closed wall panel prototype home. Working collaboratively with the client to develop a fully ‘closed panel’ wall system consisting of external cladding (EPS – Masterwall™) ready for render. Internally, rough-in of plumbing services,electrical incorporating power, data and light switches, R2 insulation and plasterboard. All Windows and external door frames were also pre-installed into the ‘closed’ wall panels.
The Prototype, a 203m2 single storey house on a screw pile stump & bearer platform incorporating our floor cassettes, closed wall panels and roof truss products to ensure speed and accurately of the install process.
The high complexity of this initial prototype and the long distance to site (1,400kms) provided additional challenges, however the project was an outstanding success with the FutureFit™ system being installed and handed over in 4 days. Day 5 saw the safety railing going in followed by Facia and Gutter. Day 6-7 saw the Colourbond™ roof installed and lock up stage passed within 7 days as the majority of the carpentry, electrical, plumbing and plastering work had a completed in our closed wall system.
This prototype was a new, exciting and a challenging project to undertake and the FutureFit™ – Team learnt a great deal from the experience. The project ran smoothly and the experience, knowledge and techniques developed will enable us to make continual improvements to our FutureFit™system to increase speed and efficiency for future projects to come.
