KOROK® panels consist of a steel shell filled with aerated concrete. Having a solid wall provides peace of mind to occupants’ in the knowledge that they are physically separated from neighbouring dwellings.Read more
KOROK® panels offer superior mass over traditional timber and plasterboard or equivalent systems resulting in enhanced sound attenuation, particularly in the more invasive lower frequencies. This means that residents are comfortable in their own space without the intrusion of noise from other dwellings.Read more
KOROK® panels provide all the fire protection you need. You can run electrical and plumbing services on an intertenancy wall, without the need for special penetration seals around each pipe or light switch. This allows you the flexibility of placing a TV and kitchen where you want, and the ability to hang pictures on the wall without compromising the fire and acoustic resistance of the intertenancy wall.Read more
KOROK® panels are fast to install. Installation can be done by a three-man team, with no need for cranes. Made to measure means there’s no on-site waste and
because the walls can be re-positioned or recycled, it’s a sustainable way of building.
Hobsonville Point Fire
On 1st September 2017 a large fire ravaged a townhouse at Hobsonville Point.
Hobsonville Point is a master-planned community being developed on 167 hectares of upper Waitemata Harbour coastal land formerly home to the Hobsonville air base. Development has been ongoing since 2011. On 1st September 2017 a large fire ravaged a townhouse in the final stages of construction. The fire was so hot that adjacent traffic lights melted. Thousands of tons of water were used to quell the fire. Luckily for attached homes, KOROK fire and acoustic wall had been used. As John Booth, Assistant Area Commander for the New Zealand Fire Service said “…the fire walls did what they are designed to do – and that is stop the spread of fire.” These photos clearly show how the house with the fire has burned away, leaving the firewalls in place.Read more
"...the new KOROK system has proven to be head and shoulders above the rest."
We’ve been using KOROK on a few of our jobs lately. This is a review of how we’ve found it.
“We’ve used several different kinds of inter-tenancy wall systems for terraced housing, and the new KOROK system has proven to be head and shoulders above the rest. It goes up quick, it feels like a bullet proof system and our builders love working with it. Once the KOROK is in place you can treat the wall parallel to it just like an ordinary wall and you don’t have to worry about offsetting power points, or plastering in awkward roof spaces, like with some drywall systems. KOROK has been really helpful with delivering extra product on the fly when needed and have provided onsite training. Their literature for the install is easy to follow, and builders aren’t left with unworkable details, it’s very practical. It definitely ticks all the boxes for us, and we’ll be using KOROK on many more future builds.“

Air Traffic Control Tower
No, your eyes aren't playing tricks on you. This is what the new air traffic control tower at Wellington airport looks like.
In August 2018 Wellington airport got a new traffic control tower, to support the more than 97,000 flights that arrive and depart Wellington Airport each year.
Built to meet 100 per cent of the building code for a structure of its importance level, the tower is one of New Zealand’s safest buildings. Thirteen base isolators have been installed within its foundations to provide a high level of resilience against earthquakes.
The tower is 32 metres above ground level, giving the controllers working in the tower panoramic views across the airfield.
Tūranga, Christchurch Library
Christchurch Central Library closed on the 22nd February 2011. This was the day of the Christchurch earthquake which killed 185 people.
Tūranga is the main public library in Christchurch, New Zealand. It opened in October 2018 and replaced the nearby Christchurch Central Library that was closed on the day of the 2011 Christchurch earthquake.
The replacement library was designed by both Architectus, a New Zealand architecture firm, and Schmidt Hammer Lassen, an award-winning Danish architecture firm. The building's design is inspired by the golden hues reflected upon the Port Hills, which are an important part in Christchurch's cityscape.
Hoyts Cinema Complex
A great new multiplex cinema coming in South Auckland. Ever wondered why you can't hear the movie playing on the screen next to yours?
