Our Story

At PLACEit, We’re Building More Than Homes – We’re Building Futures

Welcome to the heart of PLACEit, where we share our journey, our passion, and our commitment to creating innovative, sustainable, and affordable housing solutions.

PLACEit was born out of a vision – to revolutionise the housing industry by providing homes that are fast, affordable, and environmentally friendly. Our journey began over 20 years ago when we started by supplying prebuilt, demountable, and kit homes for disaster relief and charitable organisations in Australia and around the globe.

From Humble Beginnings

Our roots are deeply embedded in a humble mission – to provide shelter and hope to those in need during times of crisis. We witnessed firsthand the profound impact that providing quality homes can have on people’s lives. This experience ignited a spark in us, propelling us to expand our horizons and innovate within the housing sector.

A Global Reach

Our dedication to building not just homes, but brighter futures, has taken us to various corners of the world. We’ve provided homes in the aftermath of natural disasters, served communities in need, and helped shape better living spaces for countless families. The knowledge and experience gained from these diverse projects have been invaluable in shaping the PLACEit you see today.

A Journey of Growth

From our early beginnings, we have evolved and adapted to meet the ever-changing needs of the housing market. Our commitment to delivering homes that make a difference has been unwavering. With each project, we’ve grown and learned, continuously refining our craft to provide even better solutions.

The PLACEit Difference

Our team is driven by a shared passion for designing homes that seamlessly blend functionality, style, and budget. We understand that your home is a reflection of your lifestyle and aspirations. That’s why we work tirelessly to ensure that your PLACEit home is the perfect fit for you.

At the core of every PLACEit home is the Durra Panel difference. We are proud to present an innovative and environmentally friendly solution that sets our homes apart. Instead of traditional building materials, PLACEit homes are lined with Durra Panel, a compressed straw panel made entirely from reclaimed waste straw. This sustainable material not only enhances the integrity of your home but also ensures a healthier living space.

Durra Panel offers numerous benefits, including exceptionally low VOCs, acoustics, thermal efficiency, and fire resistance, all within a single, eco-friendly product. When you choose a PLACEit home, you’re not only selecting a home; you’re choosing a sustainable lifestyle.
