Zero Energy Mass Custom Home Network
Zero Energy Mass Custom Home (ZEMCH) aims to tackle issues arising in the delivery of socially, economically and environmentally sustainable built environments in developed and developing countries, which accommodate people with different socio-economic backgrounds that relate to ages and abilities. ZEMCH Network was established in 2010 after a number of international industry-academia collaborative study tours were organised in order to observe the state-of-the-art production and sales facilities of leading low to zero energy or carbon dioxide emission sustainable housing manufacturers in Japan, which also practise inclusive design.
ZEMCH Network consists of 667 global partners from academia, industry and government based in over 45 countries.
Expanding to recently include international workshops and conferences, The university of Melbourne are proud to host these events on campus in Parkville in 2018.
ZEMCH Network was established with the aim to enhance industry-academia R&D collaborations on the delivery of zero energy mass custom homes in developed and developing countries. Therefore, anyone who is related to construction business and research is welcome to join the network with no annual fees. For more information and membership registration, please vist the ZEMCH website.
The University of Melbourne and the Melbourne School of Design are pleased with the success of the ZEMCH 2018 International Conference where we welcomed delegates from 22 different countries and 68 papers were published.
For further information about the next conference being hosted in South Korea in September 2019 please contact Masa Noguchi.

The ARC Training Centre for Advanced Manufacturing of Prefabricated Housing is the centrepiece for collaborative, eco-friendly, prefabricated housing research in Australia, striving to deliver breakthrough product and process innovations that will enable the Australian housing industry to compete on a global stage.
The centre aims to unlock the potential growth of Australia’s prefabricated building industry by creating a co-operative training system between industry and universities leading to local employment growth and increased exports of prefabricated products and services.
Thrive is the new hub, based at the University of Melbourne, for industry-relevant research on design and innovation for sustainable, thriving built environments. Its mission is to carry out applied trans-disciplinary research that will investigate thriving in cities and develop real world solutions for the built environment.
Thrive’s key focus is to develop new knowledge in the theme areas of buildings, people and ecosystems in cities. The central focus of the hub is on applied research and visible outcomes that create a better world. We ask a central question: what will support sustainable city development in the 21st century – and how can cities thrive through future challenges?
The University of Melbourne is a national leader in energy research, with over 300 experts engaged across science, technology, economics and policy of energy. Melbourne Energy Institute provides a focal point for the University’s energy researchers and government and industry partners. Since the Institute launched in 2010, it has developed many interdisciplinary research programs across economics, engineering, health, the humanities, law and the sciences.
