New 'Design and Build' Hub in Auckland's Newmarket

Jalcon Homes has launched a new initiative targeted at Auckland’s growing urban population – a Design and Build Hub where all questions relating to building unique, architecturally designed homes can be answered, promoting clarity and confidence in the design and build process.

Situated in the heart of Newmarket at 35 Teed Street, with the main entrance on Gillies Avenue, the Design and Build Hub is now open from 10am six days a week (closed Monday).

Featuring interactive displays and project examples available for budding new home owners to browse, the Hub will also be staffed by design and build professionals at all times to offer expert advice.

Jalcon have also identified critical stages in a project’s journey from concept drawings to completed building and have assembled a panel of experts to speak on the subjects. They will share their valuable experience and insights at the Hub Talks Information Series – free, practical information sharing sessions where people can learn about all aspects of design and building a new home from the experts in their field. 

To register for a particular Hub Talk, people can do so online at www.thedesignandbuildhub.co.nz or at the Hub itself. 

CEO of Jalcon Homes, Bruce McKinnon, says the talks are essential for anyone considering designing and building a new home. 

“Key themes being discussed include obtaining council permits, estimating and controlling costs, concept, design and construction, Auckland housing market perspectives from prominent guest speakers and more. We believe Aucklanders should have a complete understanding of the design and build process right from the get go, so they are aware of what questions need to be asked at every stage in order to build their dream home.” 

People also have the option to book a one on one consultation with an expert to discuss a specific project. This can be done via the website, or at the Hub itself. Consultations will provide people with a practical roadmap of ‘where to next’ and valuable insights to help get their plans underway.
