Construction Budget: $7.5m
Completed 2014

  • High density stand-alone terrace housing development
  • Pre-fabricated construction system

With a time frame of only 8 months from inception to ground works, Norwood Drive maximised site yield with 29 four storey townhouses on a new subdivision on Auckland’s rural fringe. With a client brief to maximise floor space in each apartment, Metrapanel’s solid laminated timber construction system provided an efficient solution. Fabricated in Huntly, these pre-finished wall panels allow for thinner walls, thus increasing overall floor space. Low maintenance construction methodologies and extremely low body corp costs – due to maximisation of self-managed space on site – combined to generate genuinely affordable housing for prospective purchasers.
