Held in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne over June and July of 2014, James Hardie held these events to reinforce our commitment as a leader and partner within the building manufacturing industry.

The growth of the medium density construction segment is having a significant impact across the Australian housing market which includes all our key stakeholders and partners. 

There is acknowledgement that higher density dwellings are of key importance in providing adequate housing for the expanding population.

Demand continues to come from first home buyers, down-sizers and investors looking for properties that fit their lifestyle and are located in desirable suburbs near transport and amenities.

The solution will be a combination of detached compact homes, duplexes, terraces and low-rise units in both infill and Greenfield developments.

The question being addressed was how to develop quality medium density products that leverage modern technology and deliver on design and affordability while also creating value and return on investment for all.
