We built 14 one-bedroom units as part of a special housing accord development with Classic Builders. All these units are fully accessible, and have a communal seating and bbq area, giving residents a place to gather. This development was funded with grants from TECT and BayTrust, and commercial loans.
In 2015, TCHT purchased Whakatane District Council’s pensioner housing stock consisting of 72 one-bedroom units in Whakatane and seven in Murupara to keep as social housing for the elderly of Whakatane. In 2020 the decision was made to sell the Murupara units to local iwi who were better located to provide a social tenancy service. We continue to upgrade this housing to ensure we are providing a suitable accommodation in line with our clients’ needs.
In 2013 we designed and built 14 one and two-bedroom units with Classic Builders as part of a sustainable, secure village that is functional for people of mixed ages and abilities. Half of the units are fully wheelchair accessible. This project was made possible with grants from MBIE and TECT, and a low interest loan from BayTrust. The balance was funded with a commercial loan.
We purchased three sections in Pyes Pa and completed three 4-bedroom fully accessible dwellings designed for families who have a family member who needs an accessible home. This project was funded with the help of grants from TECT and BayTrust, and an interest free loan from Housing New Zealand, and built by Jennian Homes.
TCHT’s first building project was the purchase of two sections and building of two purpose designed homes by Jennian Homes. One is fully accessible 3-bedroom and the other 4-bedroom. This project was funded with the help of grants from TECT and BayTrust, and an interest free loan from Housing New Zealand.
