Building new has many fantastic benefits, but also has its challenges. One of those challenges, is time, the time it takes to build a new home. After all, once you’ve pushed the go button, who isn’t focused on the glorious day you can step into your new home, right? At Longview Homes, we offer you fast, warm and dry homes using structural, engineered panels. This fantastic construction system reduces build time significantly.
Save time and move in sooner. In some cases, we can have you into your new home in as little as 10 weeks.
The record speaks volumes. This panel technology has been used to create more than 9,000 warm and dry building projects throughout New Zealand over the past 25 years!
No Conventional Framing
Conventional timber framing often slows down the construction time in an average home. At Longview Homes, Metra® Construction Panels replace timber framing, making the build largely weather tight just weeks after the foundations have been laid. So, there’s no need for tradespeople having to wait around for each stage to be complete before they start work.
Fewer Variables and Less Time Delays Due to Weather
Traditionally, a new build will take anywhere between 4 to 6 months and potentially months more. Poor weather can strike at any time and rain delays are costly and frustrating. The walls and ceiling in a Longview Home are up in as little as one to three days using the engineered Metra® Construction Panels. As soon as the ceiling is in place, the team can start finishing the inside. You could be raising your glass to your warm and dry Longview Home in as little as 2 ½ months.
The engineered wood panels are made from compressed wood fibre, specially formulated resins and glues. They are made right here in New Zealand from locally grown pine, precision cut to your plans, pre-primed and ready to install. It’s a much faster way to build and that’s a big win in the middle of a freezing winter.
Save Time and Move in Sooner
- The Metra® Construction Panels speed up the build time by 30-50% compared to a traditional timber framed building
- Internal work can begin as soon as the ceiling is on, allowing us to work inside and outside at the same time
- Panels are pre-cut and primed with a level 5 finish – less sanding and stopping is required, saving more time
- Walls and ceiling can go up in 1-3 days
- Windows and doors can be ordered off the plans so there’s no need to wait for a site measure
