The engineering requirements for residential work vary widely between conventional timber framed group housing to high spec architectural precast and block homes.

For more conventional construction the simplicity of the structural layout and the selection of appropriate member sizes and types ensure easy to build and economical houses. The recent use of more innovative member types and floor systems such as laminated beams, HY90 beams and flitch beams where appropriate can help reduce costs. HFC are proud to have worked on many of the landmark homes around New Zealand for some of the country's most prestigious Architects.
