Visit the new Braebrook subdivision in Ashburton to see the Jennian Homes House Build. The $180,000 profit from the sale of this home is going to the new EA Networks Centre, a fabulous new swimming and sports complex soon to be built in Ashburton.
The project would not have been successful without the huge contribution from many local businesses and trades, who donated materials and labour. Niagara is proud to support this worthy community project. A large proportion of the house was clad using our Envira Timber Cladding weatherboard system.
Niagara provides corporate sponsorship for the 'Donate a Tree' programme - growing native plants to re-establish the coastal habitat of the Yellow-eyed Penguin. http://yellow-eyedpenguin.org.nz/
Niagara staff were amongst the volunteers at a Saturday 'build day' in April.
Below are some of the snaps from the day installing the cladding that Niagara has gifted to the project.
