In the wake of an industry survey that revealed significant hurdles within the building sector, a New Zealand modular-home service provider is stepping up to provide Kiwis with a home without the hassle.


A March 2019 survey of leading industry participants, conducted by Construction Marketing Services and supported by the Registered Master Builders Association, revealed 80 per cent of all respondents see bureaucratic regulation and ‘red tape” as having the most significant impact on the New Zealand building sector.


Nearly 500 responses were received from architects, designers, draughtsmen, builders, tradesmen and other industry leaders, with respondents describing regulatory constraints as either “critical” or “very important” to the construction sector.


Around 70 per cent of respondents believed prefabrication and modular housing may provide part of the solution to the national housing crisis - listing cost-effectiveness, materials quality, and product diversity as major challenges of a modular-home solution.


Providing building services in Wellington, Horowhenua, Kapiti, Manawatu and Hawkes Bay areas, Greenhaven Homes ensure their energy-efficient modular homes are built with premium, sustainable products, including FSC-rated timbers, LED lighting, and low-VOC (volatile organic compound) paints. This is just one way the Greenhaven Homes team is striving to redefine the perception of the modular housing market.


With the recent launch of their new show home, Greenhaven Homes’ ‘Three Bedroom Living’ plan, interested Kiwis can visit the site to see the eco-friendly home’s features up close. These include chapel ceilings with mounted, infrared heating panels, large windows designed to maximise the amount of natural light during the day, and the high-quality insulation and sustainable materials the company is renowned for.
