PrefabNZ is a non-profit membership organisation that informs, educates and advocates for innovation and excellence in offsite design and construction in New Zealand. Our Members are at the heart of everything we do and we are the heart of innovative construction in New Zealand. 



BRANZ is the New Zealand building industry's centre for science and research.


It is an independent and impartial research, testing, consulting and information company providing services and resources for the building industry. Its work enhances building performance and cost-effectiveness, contributes to the success of the building industry and the wider economy and supports the development of a higher-quality built environment for all New Zealanders. 



Panelised construction, an element of prefabrication, has become a method by which we can deliver more buildings in New Zealand while not being affected by weather, adverse conditions or the lack of daylight hours. Building in a controlled environment such as a factory enables faster delivery of a semi-finished product to site come rain, hail or shine -enabling quicker installation and faster overall project completion.

Winstone Wallboards has been working closely with fabricators, drawing on the extensive experience of our engineering team, to provide technical support and specific design input, aligning or modifying our systems to allow rapid manufacture and efficient installation.
