The Story Behind Eziyaka Concrete Foundations
Conqra Eziyaka CEO Grant Brown is an experienced builder who, in the early 1980s, became aware of the challenges faced by the concrete foundations industry and decided to do something about it.
Here’s the story in Grant’s words: “When inspecting a job I was working on, a building inspector told me to place three 40mm thick concrete pavers into the bottom of a pile foundation that was below the water table and couldn’t be pumped dry. This was to achieve the 100mm of minimum concrete embedment as described in the New Zealand building standard NZS3604. I thought there must be a better solution.
“I went away and created the Eziyaka precast concrete foundation pad. With Ernst Lapish, the co-opter of the NZS3604 standard, I then presented this product to the Auckland chapter of the Building Officials Institute of NZ (BOINZ).
“From there, we went on to develop new Eziyaka products for a range of concrete foundation systems, including the Stunna galvanised pod floor spacer and the Apache vapour barrier for penetrations and capping.
“From these practical beginnings, Eziyaka has developed a family of concrete foundation products designed specifically for New Zealand building conditions.”
Five Reasons you Should Choose Eziyaka Concrete Foundation Products
1. Custom-designed components
We don’t just design and manufacture concrete foundations, we can help you install them. Our team of concrete foundation contractors is experienced and highly capable. Even if you’re handling installation yourself, we will happily liaise with your design engineers or construction team to ensure the best solution for your project.
2. Excellent performance at a competitive price
Instead of using generic components, Eziyaka Foundations has developed specialised concrete foundation systems that work in a wide range of buildings. They are easy to install and offer reliable performance.
3. Expert advice
Eziyaka concrete foundation systems are engineered to do a precise job without the need for complex extra elements or fiddly engineering. For example, our Stunna spacer offers superior performance to plastic intersection spacers in raft floors, but does not add a burden to the construction budget. Because Eziyaka concrete foundation products are easy to install, they minimise the risk of expensive hold-ups and overruns on site – that means, lower overall cost.
4. Tested and approved
Eziyaka products have been specified and installed in thousands of concrete foundation projects, from residential renovations to light industrial sites. Everything we sell has been closely examined by design engineers and building inspectors, and approved for use by building control officials throughout New Zealand. Eziyaka products are currently being BRANZ approved – this will replace the original Codemark received in 1993.
5. New Zealand Designed and Manufactured
Eziyaka products are manufactured in New Zealand on New Zealand manufactured machines – you can’t get more Kiwi than that! Buying New Zealand-made strengthens the economic base of our entire community and helps the environment by saving on shipping from overseas.
