Lockwood Homes Structural System

Lockwood Homes Structural System

Lockwood Homes knocked on our door and asked us to help them improve their building system.  Using our deep understanding of how structures work, and intimate knowledge of the regulatory process, we helped Lockwood Homes increase profits and gain market share. We combined our innovative engineering with strategic testing to improve their structural system and demonstrate compliance with the New Zealand Building Code.  This then allowed Lockwood Homes to gain Codemark approval for their complete housing solution – a first of its kind.

As market leaders we have a deep understanding of the compliance framework. We understand that the loading code AS/NZS 1170 allows "special studies" to be completed when conventional design solutions are not appropriate. Put simply, if you know exactly how you will build something you can test it and prove that the system works. The results from testing can then be used to verify compliance. This opportunity and our proven track record with Evidence Based Design provided the ideal pathway for Lockwood Homes to drastically improve their product.

We worked with Lockwood Homes to understand their goals and objectives before focusing on developing updated bracing capacities for the Lockwood Homes Wall System. We re-engineered the system by combining the test results with our deep understanding of structural behaviour and intimate knowledge of the regulatory process. The final solution gained CodeMark approval and allowed Lockwood Homes to stay ahead of the competition.
