IKON Homes NZ Ltd prides itself on being the family that builds for families, says company director Colin Beaumont.
“The comments we get back from customers are that they like the friendly, family company culture. We are able to combine these values with offering great buying power and competitive pricing,” he says.
Colin and Lorraine established the business in 2012 and it has been steadily establishing a sound reputation in the busy Auckland Housing market. A builder by trade, Colin had owned a successful building company in East Auckland in the past and for 24 years had owned a thriving kiwifruit orchard and labour supply management company in Te Puke. The move to take on a Building Business was prompted by the desire to get back into building new homes.
IKON Homes NZ Ltd undertakes new home builds. The company offers an extensive range of plans, which can be adapted to suit clients’ needs, and offers a full design and build service with an in-house designer. Clients can also approach the company with their own plans. Quality is an important focus. The Beaumont’s are members of the Master Builders Federation and only use Licensed Building Practitioners for their builds.
IKON Homes NZ Ltd has its show home in the former Nobilo Winery Estate in the Huapai Triangle. The show home is 206 square metres, specifically designed for the site capturing sun and views. It comprises of three generous double size rooms, a media room and an office situated at the front of the house, ideal for any home business. Stand out features include a high ceiling created with the
Colin says the home is an example of the company’s focus on designing to impress, building to endure. For example, the Beaumont’s are keen on offering clients the option of green technology and ensure all homes they build are solar-ready, even if customers can’t invest in the technology upfront.
“All the cabling for solar is included in the roof to make it easy to connect this technology later. It’s definitely becoming more popular with customers investing up front if they can and if not with the peace of mind that they can easily install solar later when they are ready,” explains Colin. “These technologies pay off down the track and people are increasingly seeing the advantages. It is definitely the way of the future.”
The showhome is open for viewing every weekend from 12 –
At IKON Homes, we are proud to be building quality homes in the Auckland Region. What’s more we want to make sure you enjoy the process.
