Build Process

Prenail (PFT) can help at every stage of the requirements; from buildaable layouts for consent, structural design feasibilty, manufacturing and delivery process. We excel at providing you with a smooth and simple build process, from the initial enquiry to the final assembly of (PFT) supplied product on site.

Step One

Our qualified Designers will assist you or your Architect to create cost effective superior frame and truss solutions at design feasibility stage so that you can be confident the design will structurally comply with the Building code and current legislation when it is submitted for building consent.

Step Two

We’re very familiar with the consent process and our experienced team ensure the (PS1) Truss design, Lintel / Beam and Fixing documentation to support your consent is a compliant, cost effective solution from the get go; reducing avoidable delays with RFI’s from Council.

Step Three

Design is where Prenail (PFT) really shines! Our expert designers will think constructively and design in ways to save you time, materials and money with industry-leading processes and an astute attention to detail when preparing the plans for manufacture.

Step Four

All of our frames and trusses are built in our factory by our team of detail-driven fabricator specialists, who work closely with our on-site designers to bring you superior frames, trusses and related structural components, unique to your project.

Step Five

We arrange for delivery to your site when you need it. We supply detailed, waterproof assembly instructions with the delivery, enabling your builder to work smoothly and efficiently.

Don’t worry, your builder can read our documentation, no matter the weather and we are just a phone call away, should further assistance be required.
