Company Experience and Overview

Durapanel Housing has been supplying custom made modular houses and fully constructed homes since 1994. Both into the Pacific Islands and throughout New Zealand. Including multiple houses and a Rest Home into the Winton/ Invercargill area. Multiple houses, into Queenstown, Nelson and the Christchurch area. Houses and multi-unit student accommodation into Dunedin. Multiple houses into Kaikora, Napier, Wellington, Auckland, Whangarei, Hamilton, Katikati, Masterton, New Plymouth and the Far North.
Durapanel Housing is committed to high-tech production using computerised cutting equipment and CAD/CAM software. Durapanel Housing has invested in High Tech CNC machinery cutting panels to very fine tolerances; this equipment allows for all of the cutting, drilling, power supply trenching to be done in the factory, not on site. This fact cuts the on-site labour requirements dramatically.
Durapanel Housing provides innovation by constant research & development of our product. In the last several years, we have improved panel fixing techniques. We have designed floor systems that save many hours on site and have developed ways of utilising waste off-cuts as internal doors and robe shelving. We are constantly looking to make improvements to our products.
SUSTAINABILITY is an important factor to Durapanel Housing. Triboard is an environmentally friendly product that is strong, saves construction time and is available throughout New Zealand. It is produced locally from the Aupouri Forest, which was planted as a way to prevent erosion of the sand dunes, eventually becoming a large commercial forest. Triboard is engineered from 100% sustainable NZ Radiata pine and is made in accordance with strict quality and environmental standards (ISO, FSC).

What our customers are saying
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 fathers 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.
