The 170 square metre home at Hobsonville Point was constructed between 7.30am and 5pm, confirmed Fletcher Residential and Land Development chief executive Steve Evans.
The time-frame compares favourably to Auckland’s existing conventional-build standard of six to nine months. Panels for the home were made in a former Laminex factory in Papakura, Evans said. It is understood the panels took a number of weeks to assemble.
Fletcher Living – a home build completed in one day.
Evans believes Fletcher Living’s panelised elements could enable other construction specialists in the sector to regularly put up a home in a single day.
He intends to release Fletcher’s new fast-build solution to the general market and said he believed it would foster innovation and panelisation across the sector.■
