Ormiston Road, East Tamaki
Architect: Mox Design, Ormiston

This is the first 2-storey Litecrete house in a large residential development in Flat Bush, South Auckland.
Litecrete panels provide for rapid construction, however in this instance the building contractor decided to further speed up the construction process. The exterior faces of the 220 mm thick Litecrete panels were painted and the windows installed in the factory prior to delivery.
The roof and mid-floor assemblies were built on the ground adjacent to the floor slab, prior to the panels arriving. The 29 Litecrete panels, timber mid-floor and roof assemblies were craned in, the installation taking just over one day.
The next three 2-storey houses, all slightly different in design, were each installed in just under 9 hours.
