PT Blink is a technology platform that enables multi-storey developments to be built very quickly, via its unique Design, Manufacture & Integrate (DMI) process. It is a quantum leap for the Property Development Market. The open nature of the PT Blink DMI Platform encourages a local community of participants that bring expertise in specific areas. From structural design to interior and exterior component design (facades, glazing, bathrooms modules, etc) through to manufacture, the platform is designed to accommodate multiple stakeholders in a collaborative ‘design to manufacture’ process. Murray, who is also a governor of the Warren Centre for Advanced Engineering at Sydney University, has developed scalable building technology using a patented steel structural backbone strengthened using post-tensioned steel cables. The components are all manufactured and stressed off site, with reinforcement, fire collars and services included. The solutions do not rely on the lift core for stability empowering much faster outcomes. While PT Blink is a start-up, it’s been three decades in the making. Murray has worked around the world on large and complex projects. He developed post-tensioned steel technology for long-spanning projects like stadiums and aircraft hangars and recognised the potential for multi-storey construction. Physically the backbone is made from post-tensioned steel in a factory, no matter how tall or wide the development. The platform forms the incredibly accurate motherboard for each approved manufacturer. They provide their manufacturing model onto the blink platform, together with cost, delivery time and quality attributes. At the heart of PT Blink’s process is an innovative delivery method – design, manufacture and assemble or DMA – which is safer, more accurate, faster and cheaper.
