Concrete For The Future

Concrete has a strong future in the design and construction of affordable, easy-to-build homes.

Concrete lends itself to very efficient construction techniques such as entire homes being made from prefabricated panels and concrete masonry. Alternatively, concrete can be used selectively in individual components such as walls, beams, floors, columns, panels and stairs.

Both precast concrete and concrete masonry enable quick and easy construction that can transform a building site into a home in record time. Put those benefits together and the cost savings can be significant.

 
“Simplicity of design doesn’t limit or restrict the comfort or the functionality of the house. I’m really, really confident that our research work and design concepts will change the way New Zealanders think about residential homes.”

Ralf Kessel, Architect (EU).
