Prime Minister Bill English paid a visit to Whangarei to meet with a local company which may have the solution to New Zealand’s housing crisis.
This year Donovan Group NZ Ltd will launch a new residential housing franchise, which offers a housing system to rival the current industry standard.
The building system incorporates a patented innovative steel skeleton structure, with the company’s own unique, patented Structural Insulated Panel (SIPs) system. Together these elements provide an energy-efficient, affordable, eco-friendly and fireproof home which can be erected in record time.
The system is backed by custom-built software that allows customers to design, walk through and price their dream home online, in real time.
“Our Home Direct will be launched later this year and we’re confident that it will be a game changer in the New Zealand residential building industry,” says Jeremy Parkinson, general manager, Our Home Direct.
“The speed at which we can take a residential customer’s concept from design, through to completion is a huge advantage. The system has also created huge opportunities for multi-storey, commercial housing developments.”
During his visit, the PM took a tour of the Whangarei manufacturing facility, where the new residential construction system is currently being developed.
Donovan Group NZ Ltd is a New Zealand owned and operated company which is best known for its commercial steel building franchise success story, Coresteel Buildings.
