Exciting new developments & updates from the field

Progressive steps forward - Onehunga, Auckland

With the completion of our modular prefabricated three-storey apartments in Onehunga, Auckland this month, we took another exciting step into the future of construction.


Thermal efficiency and sustainability through Homestar

We often talk about our mission of building warm, dry and safe homes for those who need them most. In order to stay accountable on this, we engage with the comprehensive, independent national rating Homestar tool run by the not-for-profit New Zealand Green Building Council (NZBGC).


Innovation through partnerships

By tracking and documenting waste created from each build site, we have become far more aware of the levels of waste that are destined for landfills. This is why we partner with WasteCo and Green Gorilla who develop and provide sustainable waste and recycling solutions that maximise recovery and re-use, thus diverting waste from landfill. On a number of recently completed developments we have been able to divert up to 80% of our on-site waste from going to landfill.

People centred planning and design for communities

A home is a house with relationships. Relationships with its environment, with other homes, and with the community it is placed in. Innovation in development and construction therefore must always begin in the planning and design phase. That’s why, first up on any project, our Development Team engages with the communities for whom the homes are being built. That way, we can be sure we are creating a place where the residents will be part of a flourishing community.


Updates from the field - Gisborne

We have recently completed 11 homes across three sites in Gisborne ranging from one-bedroom duplexes to three-bedroom standalone homes. We have eight additional homes underway on Abbott Street which will be built to Homestar 6 specifications and share a community garden.

Updates from the field - Hamilton

The Hamilton RHP2 development consisted of four separate phases, totaling 31 homes in total. All homes were built to obtain Homestar 6 accreditation to ensure modern, secure, healthy and dry homes for future tenants of Kāinga Ora.
