Hickory manufactures innovative structural building technology, which accelerates onsite and offsite construction programs by up to 50%, minimising material and energy waste, whilst maximising quality and safety. We bring the best of automotive manufacturing technology, processes and personnel into the construction industry.
Hickory’s modular journey began with the Unitised Building (“UB”) System, a prefabricated technology created by Nonda Katsalidis, one of Australia’s leading architects. With affordability and the environment in mind, Nonda developed the UB® System as a faster, more economical and more sustainable way of building. Hickory invested heavily in developing and implementing the UB® System, exclusively utilising the technology within Australia and New Zealand.
During 2013 the team at Hickory Building Systems, together with consulting engineers and physicists set the challenge to devise a system for high-rise modular construction that would allow high-rise, super-tower developments to be built more efficiently, sustainably and safely.
The new Hickory Module takes traditional modular fabrication to a new level – refining the engineering in order to create a modular structure that performs better and can be built higher than any other existing modular system.
Manufacturing transportable units offsite while onsite works progress allows for a parallel track construction programme which can provide a higher quality end product significantly faster than traditional construction methods allow.
High-rise residential, hotel or healthcare construction projects are broken up into transportable units that are manufactured in a quality controlled factory environment then craned into position on site.

Hickory's prefabricated systems are unlike any other modular construction product available in the Australian market. Many modular systems require developers and architects to adapt their projects to the particular modular system and are therefore quite limited in application – often used only for temporary or low cost housing and accommodation.
Hickory works with leading Architects, Developers and Engineers to build their building, not ours. We engineer and prototype our modules to suit your requirements.
Our sophisticated technology controls processes and therefore controls costs by limiting waste and increasing quality. ERP software guides each step of the project sequence by integrating internal and external management of information across the entire process, from initial design through to installation on site.
