Individual Housing

We understand that there is no place like home. When we take on an individual housing project, we aim to create the end user’s ideal space, by using innovative solutions and our wealth of experience. Modern homes need to meet requirements for energy efficiency, cost effectiveness, durability, and desirable aesthetics. Every project is a partnership, where we work with the contractor or homeowner to select the most appropriate materials and methods to build a durable and attractive home.

 

Our streamlined approach maximises construction efficiency, and minimises waste and costs. Products and services include:

  • Specialised concrete solutions for safe and durable homes.
  • Slab floors installed in just one pour with our self-placing, self-leveling concrete, Agilia®.
