The way we live is changing. As our population grows, the way we build our homes and communities is evolving to meet New Zealand’s changing lifestyle demands.
Our medium density housing solutions offer low maintenance, sustainable, high quality housing alternatives, finished to the same exceptional David Reid Homes standards. Designed for functionality, we offer a mix of different housing types including duplex homes, terrace houses and apartments from 2-5 levels, which provide a modern living experience, within family friendly suburbs.
Where to begin
Your local council's planning rules informs you of what you can do and level level of allowable density you can develop to on your site. Once this is known, a concept scheme can be developed to maximise the development potential within your budget. Getting an appraisal is the first step in establishing the potential of your property.
A medium density housing project is often more complicated than a single house build. Getting new services to urban mixed housing often requires large driveways, multiple services runs, specially designed stormwater and sewer systems and rainwater detention; and that’s before you’ve even gotten out of the ground.
Our medium density team has specialist engineering knowledge – developing solutions for complex sites is our specialty.
When we build a medium-density development project for you, you still get a David Reid Homes finished product.
Our value add
David Reid Homes are going about medium density housing in a different way.
We are using environmentally friendly products. Among many others:
- We are using house insulation made from recycled milk bottles.
- We are looking to use electrical wiring solutions which reduce the amount of copper used.
- Instead of polystyrene floor insulation we are using a product made from recycled car batteries, which gives a better insulation value and is better for the environment
We are utilising alternative technologies to construct houses. Using Cold Formed Steel improves the speed of the build, as well as not being impacted by moisture.
