Concision brings beautiful design to prefab building

Any lingering perception prefabricated construction is not 'beautiful' is a myth busted by the high-spec bathroom pods from Concision off-site manufacturing.

In a New Zealand first, six Concision bathroom pods have been installed in accommodation domes at Cross Hill Lodge and Domes, on the shores of Lake Hāwea.

These bathroom pods were produced in two and half weeks. They were transported to site complete and ready to be connected to water and power. The domes were then constructed around them.

Using this modular bathroom solution means the geodesic domes can easily be moved if required.

Concision was chosen to manufacture the bathroom pods for its ability to provide a high-quality product featuring a design aesthetic in keeping with the luxurious fit-out of the domes. Importantly, this included providing an accessible bathroom of the same high quality, a concept too often lost in other accessible bathrooms.

These bathroom pods are just the latest in a long line of high-quality componentry produced at speed by Concision in its Rolleston and Matamata factories.

Similarly, a double storey, timber-clad home on Canterbury's Port Hills, designed by Fernandes Reg Architects, serves as an example of Concision's production quality.

Concision brings beautiful design to prefab building

Concision's designers worked closely with the architect and main contractor to accurately model the plans in 3D, before generating precise CNC cutting files. This process also ensured the prefabricated panels used in the design and construction, would maximise the home's thermal efficiencies.

The 240m2 house consists of 14 floor panels (seven on each level), 32 wall panels and seven roof panels, all of which took only nine days to produce. Installation was completed within three days after on-site delivery. Overall, the entire project was completed three to four months earlier than any traditional hill build.

Concision's design-led proficiency is just one of the reasons it has become a preferred partner in the housing, commercial construction and education sectors.

In fact, Concision has supplied components and modular teaching spaces for 14 schools throughout New Zealand over the last six years. All in a fraction of the time it takes traditional building to supply the same.

Their most recent project saw two brand new modular classrooms for Rolleston College to support huge roll growth. Manufacturing the classrooms took five weeks, which were then transported to the school ready to install, with windows, flashing, cladding, roofing, insulation and acoustic materials all in place.

The quiet, functional, flexible and multipurpose classrooms accommodate up to 100 students, and have quickly become a favourite teaching and learning space.

Concision operates under a comprehensive ISO9001 Quality Assurance Program. It's also a recognised offsite manufacturer by the majority of councils throughout New Zealand, which helps to streamline consent processes. This, alongside the company's digital technology, institutional knowledge, ability to manufacture at scale and deliver fast, innovative solutions, round out its vast experience.

Overall it's a package that gives Concision's partners and clients complete confidence in its manufacturing capability and the high quality of its products.
