What are Prefabricated Building Materials?

When it comes to construction, every part of the building process can influence the total cost, which is why proper planning and the right materials are key to a successful build. This is what makes prefabricated building materials so useful. From saving you time to cutting back on the total cost of materials, prefabricated building materials can make all the difference to your construction project.

King Truss is a leading supplier of prefabricated building materials in South East Queensland and our team has seen first-hand how they can improve the delivery time and quality of building and renovation projects.

What are Prefabricated Building Materials?

Our prefabricated building materials are constructed in a controlled factory environment, ensuring precise measurements and specifications are met to achieve consistent quality. These materials are assembled on-site, saving time and reducing waste during the construction process.

Our range includes prefabricated timber roof trusses, floor trusses, and joist systems, as well as wall frames.

Why Build with Prefabricated Materials?

Prefabricated building materials have gained popularity in recent years due to the numerous advantages they provide to contractors, construction engineers and builders. Whether you’re building from scratch or are renovating an existing structure, we’d recommend considering prefabricated building elements like roof and floor trusses, floor joist systems and wall frames to simplify and speed up the process.

Additional advantages to building with prefabricated materials include:


Time is a precious resource in the construction industry, and prefabricated building materials can help save a significant amount of it. These materials are manufactured in a controlled factory environment, without the delays and weather disruptions that can occur on a building site. This means that they can be produced quickly and efficiently, reducing construction time on site.


In addition to time-saving, prefabricated building materials can also help reduce labour costs and waste. These materials are made to precise measurements and specifications, which means that there is less cutting and wastage on site. This reduces costs and improves efficiency, making them a more cost-effective option compared to traditional building materials.

Quality assurance:

Manufacturing prefabricated building materials in a controlled factory environment ensures consistent quality of materials. This results in a more durable and long-lasting building structure. At King Truss, we use state-of-the-art machinery and technology to produce high-quality prefabricated building materials that meet or exceed industry standards.


Sustainability is an important consideration in modern construction, and prefabricated building materials are an eco-friendly solution. These materials are often made from sustainable materials such as timber, which is a renewable resource. Additionally, prefabricated building materials reduce waste on-site, making them an environmentally conscious choice.

Design flexibility:

Prefabricated building materials can be customised to specific design requirements, giving architects and builders more design options. This means that you can create unique and innovative designs that meet your specific needs. At King Truss, we work closely with our clients to ensure that their prefabricated building materials are designed to their exact specifications, resulting in a tailored solution that meets their specific construction needs.
