Jalcon Homes’ Scaffolding Tent Builds Auckland Homes Faster
Jalcon Homes’ innovative scaffolding tent helps build Auckland homes faster
The ever-changing Auckland weather is no longer an issue for Auckland-based design and build company, Jalcon Homes. Constructing New Zealand’s largest residential-build scaffolding tent at Hobsonville Point – the first of its kind in the industry - Jalcon are setting new innovative standards for all New Zealand building companies by helping build quality homes faster.
Jalcon Project Manager Matthew Hambrook says, although constructing the tent does cost more initially, costs are recovered by quicker construction times and lower overhead costs.
“It goes without saying Auckland needs more homes, and fast. We want to help make that happen, so have come up with a solution to avoid common building pitfalls such as unruly weather affecting a build’s schedule and completion date. The tent also enables us to provide a safer work environment with no wet/slippery areas or high winds to contend with. Sub-contractors prefer working here too, compared to exposed sites, due to no lost time.”
The scaffolding is installed before construction starts with a roof and gets covered in. In this case, the tent is covering 12 residential apartments, and Jalcon will be using the tent on other future large-scale builds at Hobsonville Point.
Designing and building in Auckland for more than 20 years, and winning the Master Builder House of the Year Award 72 times, it’s fair to say Jalcon are dedicated to designing and building quality homes. With innovative architectural designers who think outside the square, designers and builders who take a genuine interest in the design process, project managers who are personally committed to meeting agreed budgets and timeframes and interior designers who listen and help craft a home’s design right from initial concepts, the end goal is always providing a bespoke design that’s been built by craftsmen.
Proudly family-owned, Jalcon take full responsibility for every aspect of a home’s creation, a commitment that’s backed by some of the best guarantees in the industry, including a Jalcon 15-year Weathertight Warranty, a 50-year Structural Guarantee and a 10-year Master Build Guarantee.
