Auckland house-in-a-day: Fletcher unveils high-speed process
Fletcher Living has just built a three-bedroom house in a day and hopes it will inspire others to use new techniques and build faster to meet Auckland's pressing housing needs.
Fletcher Residential and Land Development chief executive Steve Evans this morning showed off the 170sq m $800,000-plus house at Hobsonville Pt, which he said was put up between 7.30am and 5pm yesterday.
It usually takes six to nine months to build a house in Auckland, he said. But Fletcher Living's panelised components could enable others in the sector to regularly put up a home in a single day, he said.
