The client

Kāinga Ora Homes and Communities

A pivotal moment to accommodate the most in need, the government investment of $1.5 billion in 2018 set the ambitious housing plan at Epuni.

Miles Construction was selected as the main contractor to bring to life the Oxford Terrace multi-residential development in 2021.

Scope

UNO contributed significantly to Kāinga Ora's project, enriching the three-story fully insulated homes.

The primary goal of the Epuni development plan encompassed:

  • Building 32 modern, warm, and dry homes, predominantly one bedroom homes with a complement of three and four bedroom residences.
  • Provide homes with low maintenance and fully insulated equipped with Low E double glazing.
  • A gateway to homeownership, this affordable construction was facilitated, particularly for first-time buyers.
  • Enhancing a new standard in neighbourhood refinement by improving the construction style. 
  • Mandating a Homestar rating of 6 for all homes, indicating they surpass the existing New Zealand building code standards.
