Get it right with local knowledge and building expertise.

Macbuilt Construction is experts in the industrial and commercial building sector, and in particularly large, clear-span buildings – anything from 9 to 95m clear span. Our specialist commercial building team, concentrates in medium to large scale, wide span steel construction projects. We understand the complexities that each project can bring, from concrete tilt panel to multi-level office complexes, or a large scale sheds. Our experienced project management team will ensure your project runs smoothly and on time, avoiding costly delays due to compliance and consent requirements.

No matter what type of building, we have the project management expertise to deliver on time and budget.

Our types of buildings:

The structures we build range from lightweight cold-formed steel to hot rolled welded beam sections. The essential difference is the weight of the steel and the strength relating to the capability of the product. Get the right expert advice from the start, as your project requirements will determine what the best type for you is.

1. Light Weight Steel Industrial Buildings

Light industrial buildings are made out of light gauge steel that is formed into shape by passing through a roll forming machine. This style of building is popular as it is quick and easy to build and is cost-effective against timber buildings. Our partnership with Formsteel gives us the capability of up to 45 meters clear span, the longest in New Zealand. Buildings outside these dimensions are generally built in structural steel and/or concrete.

These buildings will either require designed welded beam sections made specifically for your project or manufactured out of standard sections. Applications such as overhead gantry cranes, cantilever mezzanine floors etc. can all be incorporated into your design.

2. Concrete Tilt Panels

Concrete tilt panels serve a dual purpose. They protect neighbouring properties from the risk of fire, while also retaining the adjacent bank. Tilt Panel construction has many advantages. It is a quick way of creating large spaces, is cost-effective, allows maximum land use, has great fire rating qualities and can be used as the finished product. We offer design and erection packages on all Tilt Panel jobs. Construction of the concrete panels can be onsite or offsite depending on the nature of the project.

Our specialist concrete team provides excellence and expertise in all concrete applications, from tilt panel construction single and multi-level, to suspended concrete mezzanine floors in large commercial applications and general concrete and formwork construction.

3. Speciality Structures

Construction materials and the ability of specialty products to seamlessly fit into buildings are better now that ever before. The range and choice are huge and can be overwhelming. We can assist you with the right technical advice on matters such as:
