This paper reviews recent developments in pre-fabricated construction systems using light steel and modular technologies, and describes the economic context in which the use of these systems has expanded. Examples of recent important projects using these technologies are illustrated. Hybrid or mixed construction systems have been developed which optimise on manufacturing costs and space provision. Background research and testing is also presented.
