affordable housing - Tough nut to crack!

Affordable housing is such a tough nut to crack, so its really satisfying to be tackling it head on with a great team to build a new approach... and yes, its going to be prefabricated off-site!

We are currently working on an exciting new low-cost studio house project for a backyard site with no onsite access. The design combines two pavilions, 30m2 unit living/dining/kitchen with 10m2 bedroom unit. Cladding is a combination of multi-skin insulated polycarbonate panels, metal and plywood insulated panels and double glazed joinery orientated primarily north. It will be fully prefabricated at the Makers factory in Gracefield, Wellington and flat-pack delivered for rapid assembly on site.
