Prefab commercial builds on rise
Already well known for its expertise in prefabricated housing, Genius Homes has now made a name for itself in designed and built prefabricated commercial buildings, with a recent project providing a 300sqm amenities block for the Franz Josef Scenic Hotel staff accommodation village a prime example of what the company can achieve on a tight time frame in a remote location.
Genius Homes sales and marketing manager Jeremy Richards says clients are now starting to bring their own plans to Genius Homes, but they’re having trouble finding a builder who can accommodate a tight schedule, a remote location, or even a project that needs to be built during winter time.
“We are a builder with an innovative building method which provides an efficient and hasslefree building experience, resulting in high quality, functional homes and buildings complete with cost and time savings,” he says.
Genius Homes manufactures a wide range of homes and buildings in two factory production lines in Timaru, then delivers completed modules to prepared building sites around the South Island. “We can build anything in modules up to 9.5m wide and 23m long,” Jeremy says.
“The staff amenities block at Franz Josef was constructed on our production line over eight weeks and transported to site in three parts.”
Genius Homes has completed several projects for the accommodation industry, where remote locations, tight time frames, and winter building are all common factors.
The company is currently providing four luxury apartments for Queenstown TOP 10 Holiday Park, as well as toilet and outdoor spa blocks, and has an upcoming project at Fox Glacier to provide more staff accommodation.
Genius Homes manufactures high quality and functional buildings, guaranteed to be finished to the highest standard.
Buildings are finished with quality fittings and furnishings, including high quality appliances and premium floor coverings.
Strict supervision of Genius Homes’ two production lines leaves nothing to chance, ensuring the production of high quality homes and buildings constructed from only the finest materials.
All trade work is carried out professionally to high standards and according to a schedule.
There are no weather delays, and the qualified and experienced Genius Homes tradesmen are all onsite in the factory, eliminating any travel time.
The company offers flexible designs, complete project management, regular client communication,
weekly production updates, and new homes and buildings delivered complete to site.
The company manages the whole design, build, and consent process, as well as transport and site works.
It welcomes visitors to the Timaru production lines where they can see homes and buildings at all stages of construction.
Visitors often comment that to view the buildings on the production line in various stages from start to finish gives them a great insight into the quality of Genius Homes compared to viewing completed homes.
