Here at Versatile we’re proud to have been building for New Zealanders since 1976. We’ve seen plenty of things change over that time – styles have come and gone, new techniques have been introduced, and the needs of Kiwis have evolved significantly. We’ve remained at the forefront of our industry by being willing to adapt; by listening and responding to our clients, and by continually searching for new ways to build faster, smarter and in a more environmentally-friendly manner. And now we’re excited to introduce Concision, the panelised system that will have you in your home faster than you ever thought possible.
What is Concision?
Concision builds homes differently and improves the build process in terms of speed and quality. It is a proven approach that has been used in Europe, Japan and North America for decades. Combining digital technology with manufacturing precision, Concision takes building designs and plans through a staged production operation within its Christchurch factory. This process is enabled by specialised, industry-leading Weinmann plant and equipment imported from Germany.
The Concision factory acts as a single location for most of the trades and processes involved in a building project. So the majority of construction work is undertaken in one place ensuring less waste in terms of time and materials, and the highest quality of construction output. Every element a perfect fit.
How does it work?
Concision is a complementary system to traditional building. The unique software takes house designs and working drawings and translates them into production stages within the factory. Trained technicians then oversee the entire production process, with rigorous quality control checks in place throughout each stage.
The Concision machinery produces the walls, floors and roof panels of a house in the factory with all insulation, cabling, plumbing and plastering included in the efficient manufacturing process. Once the house structure is built in panels it is transported to site and fully assembled. At this point it is ready for connection to services, and for all finishings such as painting, joinery and flooring.
The Concision Process
The benefits of Concision
Adaptability Design flexibility and construction efficiency are both enhanced rather than restricted by Concision’s digital technology. Whatever your needs, the technology and machinery can be adapted to individual requirements.
Quality Traditional construction relies largely on human skills and experience that can sometimes compromise a consistent standard of work. Concision’s digital technology constantly delivers exacting standards, measures and accuracy that surpass the quality of traditional building methods
Speed Concision builds homes faster than traditional building. Greater production capacity and reliance on machinery means less exposure to the variables of weather and human pace and resources. Your house is constructed in the factory whilst site preparation is undertaken so you can be in your new home sooner.
We have over 30 locations throughout New Zealand
The Kiwi landscape is incredibly diverse. When it comes to building, that means different conditions – and different challenges – depending on where you live. Fortunately, we’ve got franchises all over the country. And those franchises are run by people with an intimate understanding of everything from the local environment to the local building codes.
