Fifteenth Ave, Tauranga in the sunny Bay of Plenty.
Landmark Homes BOP have been operating in the Bay of Plenty for 30 years and
they are registered Master Builders ensuring that all their homes carry a 7
year warranty. With over 60 "Ready to Build" designs and a "Design & Build"
service available Landmark Homes BOP Ltd can offer their clients a very
professional, efficient service.
After recent changes in the building code with timber strengths and spans
reducing, as well as supply of long length wide timber particularly for rafters
and mid floors becoming harder to procure, Landmark Homes BOP with the help of
their local PlaceMakers store made the decision to look for another product for
Kent Hazlehurst, Construction Manager for Landmark Homes BOP, told
PlaceMakers that they needed a supplier that has long length product, that can
be easily and readily sourced, and at a price that is market competitive.
PlaceMakers Mount Maunganui took these requirements in mind and came back to
Landmark Homes BOP and recommended "Engineered Timber Solutions"
Engineered Timber Solutions or "ETS", promote the Hyne range of Engineered
Wood Product in NZ, (as part of their range), and have been able to meet the
requirements and demands that Landmark Homes BOP asked of PlaceMakers.
Supply of Hyne product to the NZ market is far quicker than any other supply
chain in NZ with five days maximum for both untreated and treated into the BOP
area. Long lengths are also no issue, as stocks of up to 11.7m long are readily
available. Once Kent had completed his cost comparisons, including labour
savings, he realised they had found a solution.
To further enhance the offer PlaceMakers introduced Landmark Homes BOP to
the IBUILT™ Structural Flooring Solution available through Engineered
The IBUILT™ floor system is a combination of the Hyne range of
product, including Hyne "I" beam, Edgebeam and 17c. ETS Rimboard, Pryda
hangers, Pynefloor Gold 22mm Particle Board from The Laminex Group and recently
added to the system is the "ETS 900" T&G H3.2 ply for wet areas.
Pynefloor Gold Flooring Grade Particle Board is manufactured and marketed by
The Laminex Group. It is 22m thick providing greater strength and has a resin
composition allowing increased exposure time for up to 12weeks. Pynefloor Gold
is available in a convenient sheet size and carries a BRANZ appraisal. L
Landmark Homes BOP have also taken advantage of the ETS detailing service
for the on site builder. This is a colour coded plan showing the builder which
beams go where, and which connection hangers etc to use for each beam. This is
another bonus that PlaceMakers Mount Maunganui and ETS offer Landmark.
Included in this service, PlaceMakers also receive a complete list of beams
and associated products to order including, the amount of Pynefloor Gold, ETS
900 ply, hangers, even the amount of glue, screws and nails required, making
life a whole lot easier for them.
