Jalcon Homes – Stairs, landings and breezeways

The Project

The Owairaka development sits at the base of Mt Albert and comprises a mix of walk up apartments and terraced homes. Woodspan supplied our new Long Span decking, which was used for the external stairs, landings and breezeways.

The Challenge

The client wanted a biophilic element on the exterior that brought a contrast to the steel and concrete. The option to minimise the amount of steel by using a long spanning product was needed that also gave visual appeal when viewed from below.

The Solution

Woodspan Long Span Decking created using H3.2 finger jointed timber is planed after treatment meaning that the surface has none of the greening in similar products resulting in a superior visual finish. The 90mm decking product has a span of 2.2m minimising the amount of steel required on the supporting structure and also dramatically reducing the number of fixings required. The landing and stairs were completed very rapidly.

See what the builder had to say:

“For me personally I found Woodspan great to deal with. There was great communication right from the start with site visits and great communication with delivery. Woodspan were very accommodating with delivery when we had hold-ups. You couldn’t ask for a better company to deal with. The quality of the material is also the reason we are back using them again for the next project.”

Industrial Units and Offices in Hobsonville

Completed in Hobsonville, Auckland, this project consists of light industrial units with mezzanine floors. We supplied mass timber panels in visual grade.

Mary Potter

Woodspan supplied PLT floor panels for the Mary Potter Apartment project in central Wellington, comprising of 41 apartments across 5 levels.

“If we have small units requiring mezzanines we would definitely have Woodspan involved. It takes out painting and fire considerations and is good from a building, value and engineering perspective. PLT ticks all the boxes.”

“It was our first PLT install and it went super well. I hope to see more of this in the future“
