What We Do

Tallwood collaborates with our clients to develop sustainable, economical buildings for a variety of residential and commercial projects. Our role within a construction project is that of a specialist designer and contractor. We design and make key components of the building structure, envelope and interior in our factory and install them on-site. Those components are usually:

  • Structural skeleton
  • Floors
  • Internal walls
  • External walls (with cladding on and windows in)
  • Roofs
  • Bathroom pods

When we initiate a project we will design it to be manufactured chiefly in engineered timber (LVL and CLT). We also manufacture the timber components for hybrid buildings that include traditional materials like concrete and steel. Walls, floors and roofs are delivered to the site as panels and bathroom pods are delivered as completed modules.

Being digitally enabled means we can create drawings that become the single integrated model for your project. This streamlines and enhances the process from design, to factory, to on-site installation.

Our Design Guide explains how involving Tallwood early in your project unlocks significant benefits.

The Tallwood Process

01

Product Development

Tallwood invests in understanding how New Zealanders live, work and play now and in to the future. We create products, processes and designs to meet client and customer demand so that we can know 80% of all there is to know about our buildings before we start. Our intense R&D focus is unique in the sector, as are our extensive partnerships and collaborations across New Zealand and around the world. Tallwood has developed options for standalone and terrace housing, walk-up apartments and multi-level buildings across a range of sectors that are designed, costed and ready to deploy.

Process Management

Every successful project is the result of an holistic, in-depth understanding and management of its design and commercial parameters. Our team brings significant expertise in understanding the key success factors of a project and adds value through experience and creative thinking. We can partner with you to guide your project from site selection through to completion.

03

Design and Manage

Tallwood’s design team and delivery platform can create early-stage feasibility studies and designs to optimise your project and site. We can also manage the coordination of people and information as the project develops over time through the entire design process. By managing the deliverables of the project in adherence to the time, budget and scope constraints agreed, we minimise variations and disruption to the project.

Manufacture

Manufacturing rather than building your project requires a different way of thinking about the entire programme. We’ve been leading the New Zealand offsite manufacturing sector for more than 20 years and delivered numerous exemplar projects. Your buildings will be manufactured in a controlled environment where we can build at a level of quality unachievable with conventional construction.

Install

With Tallwood, slow construction is transformed into fast installation and assembly. The Tallwood methodology is also a much safer way to build. Our clients can expect our specialist teams to provide a quality service installing floors, walls, roofs, bathroom pods and other elements to change how we build in New Zealand. Our install teams arrive with cutting edge building models to guide the placement and programme. Once your building is complete we can maintain it for you.
