for transitional housing
Kāinga Ora plans to purchase thousands of prefabricated homes to address the country’s growing need for transitional housing, many of which will be built offshore and shipped over.
Kāinga Ora general manager of construction Patrick Dougherty said a main goal of the project was to boost New Zealand’s domestic off-site manufactured (OSM) capacity and capability.
However, in order to meet demand, many would be constructed abroad and shipped over as ready-built, weathertight one and two-bedroom homes.
