Spring Edition | October 2020
It has been a busy few months for the team here at Homestead Construction, with some exciting new projects in the mix. It has been great to see the resilience of the regional economy in light of the current economic climate, and the future growth in the region is looking very solid.
Last week an Open Day/Blessing was held at the recently completed Kainga Ora units at Champion St, Porirua, with the local Iwi and other stakeholders. It was a great way to hand this project over to the local community, and we trust that they enjoy their new healthy homes - that achieved a Homestar 6 rating.

In late July the Paetutu Development project was a winner of the NZIA 2020 Wellington Architecture Awards for Multi-Unit Housing - congratulations to Tobin Smith and the team at CoLab Architecture for this achievement. More about the award here
This project was a great showcase of the benefits of precast construction in the multi-residential application, especially in the speed of construction.

Quick Facts

Running at full capacity, the Woodgate Conference Hall will use approx. 25% of the capacity of one of the new 125m high Turitea wind turbines being constructed near Palmerston North.
On this project, to date, approx. 1200m3 of concrete has been supplied to site, and 28 tonnes of stonework for the exterior.

Since our last newsletter our precast team has handled over 420m3 of concrete and 64,600m of reinforcing.
