IF you want to know how a builder can get a house up in half the time, you might want to check out a new system which will be utilised in Mackay later this month.
It's called the Strandwood system and company director Chris Busch said it's 50% faster than building via standard methods.
"The process removes critical paths that typically delay the building process," Mr Busch said.
"In most instances, external finish is required before you do the internal finish .. but trades can work simultaneously on site without inhibiting each others' process."
Mr Busch said the house would be built as a display home to show the market the efficiency in their building systems.
Panels are solid wood (New Zealand radiata) and they carry a 50 year warranty.
The system will be put up by Brisbane-based builders Contrast Constructions, but all other internal and external finishing work will be undertaken by Mackay contractors.
"There has been interest shown (in the system) from other builders in Mackay, but the proof's in the pudding - they want to see it, and people are welcome to come and watch it go up over those 10 days," he said.
Building will start in the Eden on the Water estate at Lot 3, 146-150 Shoal Point Rd on January 30.
