The leaky building saga and Christchurch earthquake, as well as numerous floods have taught us this. Changes in the building code and building qualifications requirements have been part of this change in priority.
Building in Concrete is a significant step to building better homes in New Zealand. Admire Homes is positioned at the forefront of this advance in customer demand and building technology.
You can take advantage of this proven progression in technology and build a more secure, safer and healthy home for you and your family.
Click on the video below to see how concrete construction is changing the way New Zealanders can build their houses. The Cement and Concrete Association of NZ, CCANZ, have put together this informative video.
Concrete has been used in construction for over 5000 years. It is the most used man-made material in the world, with nearly three tons used annually for each man, woman and child. Twice as much concrete is used around the world than the total of all other building materials, including wood, steel, plastic and aluminium. None of these other materials can replace concrete in terms of effectiveness, price and performance.
In New Zealand concrete is used to build our schools, hospitals, tunnels, bridges, apartment blocks, sewerage systems, dams, footpaths, runways, roads and more. Our communities are literally built on concrete.
As the leaders in this technology, Admire Homes is using Concrete to build more cost effective, durable, energy efficient, safer and healthier homes, than any other common building construction method in New Zealand today.
