2022 Scope: Contemporary Research Topics (Work-based Learning)  
In the last three decades, prefabrication and offsite construction have gained wider attention across the globe. There have also been advances in prefabricated building technologies from a product perspective. However, no widely accepted classification system is available to help stakeholders develop their understanding of the prefabrication construction. This study reviews the recent prefabricated building technology classification systems in relation to the product type. Qualitative content

Each prefabricated building technology type was reviewed in-depth for differences within classification systems. This study helps academics and practitioners to understand the basic differences amongst prefabricated building technologies, potentially leading to an increase in the uptake of prefabricated construction as stakeholders' knowledge of these technologies improves.
