Introduction

The full potential of concrete as a residential construction material is yet to be fully realised in New Zealand, but times are changing.

Although almost every new home already benefits from a concrete floor slab, opportunities now exist for the ALL the benefits of residential concrete construction to be enjoyed.

Architects and designers have the flexibility to give full expression to their vision, while builders and developers are able to satisfy their need for fast and economical building systems that can be rapidly built and provide varied appearance.

In turn, homeowners can occupy affordable, robust homes which are comfortable, quiet and healthy, as well as being low maintenance and high in resale value.
