HB Homes has a purpose-designed prefabrication facility in Irongate, Hastings. We have a long history of being based in Irongate and we have the capacity to build up to 6 buildings at any given time in a covered weatherproof facility.
The facilities floor is lasered enabling mobile scaffolding to manoeuvre around the buildings. Plumbers are able to work under the building on mechanical trolleys and when required sub-contractors can have staff on shift work, to complete buildings. Everyone is spread about with separate work areas and the buildings are completed to a closed in stage internally and then rolled outside for sub-contractors to complete internal work.
The buildings are alarmed and monitored so no time is wasted packing up equipment each day. There is limited waste as all offcuts are re sorted into reusable products such as pegs and profiles.
Over the years we have developed a strong relationship with EIT Hawke's Bay and trade students spend time at our facility building their own construction projects.
