Our in-house capability includes design, technical and engineering expertise, enabling innovation and process efficiency in our façade and joinery solutions. Investment in our manufacturing facilities and operations means we are now one of the largest operators in the North Island.

DESIGN

Our in-house design and technical teams have a wealth of specialist knowledge which can be leveraged to streamline the design, specification and tendering process. We welcome the opportunity to work with designers early in the process, and can offer a range of technical support including aluminium suite and glass selection, and façade installation methodologies to assist with design considerations.

TESTING

We have an intensive working knowledge of commercial façade and window system products, and in-house capability to steer product development, optimisation and bespoke solution designs.

We work closely with APL and their new purpose built IANZ-accredited test booth, together with 3D printing technology to build and test new product prototypes.

MANUFACTURING

Operating two new factories located in Hamilton and Whanganui, we are one of the largest aluminium joinery manufacturers in New Zealand.  We have a dedicated in-house structural glazing facility and operate some of the most advanced automated saws and CNCs available to the industry.  Operating two manufacturing plants enables us to be agile and flexible in managing peak workflows and project deadline commitments.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT

We take a proactive and hands-on approach to project management, and we are always looking at ways to improve efficiencies and enhance project delivery.  We encourage close working relationships between our team, the main contractor and project consultants to meet and exceed the clients objectives in project delivery.  Our project managers are respected for their technical knowledge and hands-on problem solving.

INSTALLATION

Our installation team includes both Wight Aluminium employees and a network of respected and proven contractors that we have well established relationships with.  We have invested in our own lifting and handling equipment, including a glass handling robot and a number of Unic Cranes, providing our crews with some of the most advanced tools available for installing curtain wall panels.  Health and safety is central in our operating ethic.  Our people take full responsibility for all aspects of our activities onsite, and are actively involved in the QA process.
