Just announced is Fletcher's Weinmann prefeb house factory based in Wiri, Auckland. Based entirely around Weinmann technology from the Homag Group, Fletcher have stated their 'Clever Clore' manufacturing facility aims to cut their house-building lead time from 22 weeks to just six.
The plant was officially opened by NZ Minister of Housing Megan Woods. Auckland mayor Phil Goff was also at the opening and praised the huge reduction of waste that prefab technology involves - with Clever Core stating there'd be just a bag of rubbish per home constructed in the factory.
