Panel Construction


DURAPANEL HOUSING NORTH has been supplying custom made Modular Houses and Fully Constructed Homes since 1994 both to the Pacific Islands and throughout New Zealand. This includes multiple houses into the Whangarei/Auckland area and the Far North. We are now expanding into new relocatable homes, constructed on our site and transported to yours. The faster way into a house.


The Triboard Construction System has been tested and appraised by BRANZ and has been developed to ensure quality, speed and efficiency. The walls are solid and strong, with excellent insulation and acoustic properties.


DURAPANEL HOUSING panel construction reduces waste e.g. where door openings are cut into an internal partition panel, the piece of panel off-cut is made into an internal door. Where window openings are cut out, the waste-panel is made into pantry & robe shelves.

“Please congratulate and thank all the team at Durapanel for completing a wonderful job on our house. The input from the design team, interior decorating advise, kitchen input, plus construction quality all exceed our expectations. Toshiko who worked in her father’s premier furniture making factory and has exacting standards has ticked all the boxes for all aspects of the house. A double big plus for the all concerned. Ian, your advise on construction, dealing with the red tape of FNDC and flexibility to our requirements are a credit to a very professional business approach. A Master Builder friend of mine made comment that the innovations and finish of our house was the best he had seen. We would have no hesitation in endorsing your company to any person looking for you to build for them. Thank you so much for our solidly built, warm and comfortable home. Every business success for 2016. Seasons greeting and a well earned rest to all.
Best regards,”

Richard and Toshiko S.

We would like to formally thank the team at Durapanel for the construction of our new home. We are so very proud of our new house and after living here for over 2 months we can really appreciate all the time, effort and workmanship that went into its construction.

We have no hesitation in recommending Durapanel to anyone looking for a new home. From when we first approached Durapanel the process was easy. We outlined what we wanted and what our budget was. Ian offered different options and we chose the best one that suited us. We opted for a full contract build and everything was taken care of from the building permit , to the kitchen , to appliances, it was a one stop shop. All we had to worry about was choosing colours. It took all the stress out of building a house and ensured that we stayed within our budget. Ian made it so easy and was so accommodating throughout the process.

We were amazed with the speed in which the construction took place. From the initial planning and designing of the house to its final stages, it was all systems go with the Durapanel team. All phases flowed from one to the next all due Ian´s superior organization, budgeting and management skills. Each division of the Duarapanel team moved like clock work. Luke brought our house design to life with his plans and enabled us to incorporate all our additional features. The builders Davey, Howard and painter Shane were fabulous and their efficiency and attention to detail was just outstanding. Matts kitchen was exactly what I wanted and I was just thrilled with it. They were all so accommodating with us on site virtually everyday and always greeted us with a smile.

Now living in our new Durapanel home we really see the benefits of choosing a triboard home. It is unbelievably warm and even moving here in August we have rarely put our heater on. Having the solid walls for a growing family couldn’t have suited us more. The walls are so strong and robust they can withstand all the hard knocks caused from our children´s toys or my husbands golf clubs. This is the ideal product to build houses due to its exceptional hard wearing durability. Whether it be for a family home, rental property or holiday house it is amazingly tough and will definitely stand the test of time.

It is with no doubt that we endorse not only Durapanels triboard product but all the services in which Ian and his team provided. We couldn’t be happier with our fabulous new home and can´t recommend enough all the personalized service which Ian and the Durapanel team delivered on.

A very big thank you to Ian and his Durapanel team!

We would like to take the time to thank you for our lovely house and guest cabin. We found you all very friendly and a pleasure to work with, form the design & planning, throughout the build process to completion. In particular I would like to thank Sunia & Jens who were very focussed on quality and delivering the home we wanted: A turn-key project including carport, decking, covered pergola, etc.. Consultation throughout the process was outstanding. We believe you have delivered us a quality product. Our home is a pleasure to live in and we are very happy.
Many thanks to you again & Have a Happy Christmas!

Durapanel Housing Ltd have exceeded our expectations. We live in Indonesia and the staff at Durapanel have been great at communicating with us throughout the build of our two properties. They have been so helpful and diligent. We are extremely impressed with their service and high quality of work. We would highly recommend them to anyone for any project. Regards Blair & Bunga

There are many things we can say about the team at Durapanel. This was our first house build experience and our initial discussion with Ian was handled with such professionalism that after our dealings with two other prospective builders it was a great experience by comparison. Jens was on the design job immediately and again we enjoyed the experience of his knowledge and advice. They handled all the site work and the interaction with the Far North District Council for the required permits such that the transition from plans to site development to build was totally seamless and hassle free.
In the middle of winter one would expect delays but with the Durapanel system the house was closed in on the 10th day from the start of build. The design team of Jens and his wife Sunia and their advice on things like flooring, colours and ergonomics was really useful. Communication and enquiry response was excellent at all points of the design and build process.
By the end of the build, we had acquired a new set of friends. 
Clearly we are absolutely delighted with our house and our first build experience and would not hesitate to do it all again but for the fact that we love the location and this house.
