In 2007 Generation Homes implemented a Joint Venture Partnership model which allowed for growth into other parts of New Zealand. Seeing the value in the systems they had created and the production build methodology which allows for a repeatable process that can see builds completed in a set timeframe and at a fixed price, Generation Homes has helped to build 1000’s of homes in communities across the country.
Our Joint Venture structure means that even though we work as regional businesses, each partnership as a vested interested in seeing the national business succeed, grow and strengthen its overall position in the market. While providing a financially stable business structure, our brand and business model also has a solid reputation for always paying our bills on time.
Different to a franchise model, the Joint Venture model see ownership shared between Generation Group and the Regional Directors. This forms a true collaboration between both parties. The Director of each region also has a vested interest in the success of the wider Generation Homes brand and has the support and knowledge of the wider business to draw on
Our Regional Directors live, work and raise their families in these communities. They have strong relationships with local developers, trades people, suppliers, investors, and our customers.
Underpinning this structure is the leadership team in our national office. The national office provides core services in operations, procurement, marketing, sales, finance, systems and people development. The team work with the Regional Directors and their teams on a daily basis to help make their businesses a success and give them the support the need to grow and expand their product range.
We are now seeing the next generation of business owners moving up and taking on leadership roles.
Our vision is to be New Zealand’s best project partner and we see collaboration both internally and with external partners as a key part of this.
Since our inception, Generation Homes has partnered with landowners and investors to develop residential communities exceeding $600 million in value to date.
