  • Why are you so passionate about comfortable and affordable homes? How do you achieve that?

      2018/12/28   

    Auckland is facing a housing shortage, and the government has pledged to build 100,000 affordable homes across the country. As immigrants, we want to give back to NZ, the country that welcomed us. With our building experience, we review designs thoroughly before getting the resource and building consents needed to start a project, making the construction process far simpler, faster and more cost effective. We have several sub-contractor teams for each region in Auckland, and arrange subs for each project to best make use of people’s core skills. Our suppliers are all established NZ companies, and consistently provide us with high quality supplies on time.

  • What’s your philosophy towards improvement? What is KAIZEN?

      2018/12/28   

    Kaizen (改善) is the Japanese word for “improvement” and focuses on continuous improvement. Originally founded by TOYOTA, we adopt this concept into our own company. Implementing this philosophy requires a serious commitment from our team and discipline that involves all members across all areas of the company. To progress our clients’ projects smoothly, from sales to design and then onto the build team, we use several checklists to ensure we haven’t overlooked any potential issues. If we find one, we seek the best solution as quickly as possible. We also care about health and safety on-site, so are always checking for any hazards and clean the site every day.

  • I’m thinking of buying a piece of land. What is considered “good” land?

      2018/12/28   

    There is plenty of vacant land in Auckland. In terms of construction, we advise you to find flat land, without a long driveway, and with drainage (both stormwater and wastewater) if possible. Also check that the land doesn’t have any drainage issues, floodplains, or a significant amount of trees. Some Auckland areas may have solid rock under the ground as well. We’d recommend checking a geotechnical report if it’s available.
