A division of PNG Forest Products, Niu Homes makes buildings which use renewable plantation pine and are entirely designed and made in Papua New Guinea.

Its services extend from building design and product delivery to construction and fit-out. Roofing, electrical, plumbing and other hardware components are included in the prefabricated buildings, and complementary furniture packages are also available.

Niu Homes prides itself on its compliance with international standards. ‘[We] adopt a very stringent approach to quality, attention to detail, sustainability and serviceability in complimenting the integrity of our products,’ says PNG Forest Products Marketing Manager, Stuart Wallace. ‘This approach, in our opinion, is of extreme importance within the market.’

‘The markets we supply are extremely diverse,’ he continues. They include residential family and executive design houses, ranging in size from 20 to 220 square metres, to commercial models: two- and four-bedroom apartments, two-story duplexes and 16-, 20- and 24-room complex buildings commonly used as corporate housing, mining camp accommodation or at resort projects.

Currently, domestic customers make up approximately 60% of Niu Homes’ market, with the remainder being exported. ‘Our products have been placed extensively throughout PNG and surrounding areas including Lihir, Bougainville, Vanuatu, Samoa, the Solomon Islands and into Cairns, Australia,’ says Wallace. He believes there is room for growth in the export market, especially in neighbouring South Pacific countries.

The operation employs 152 people, with staff in its design office, production facility, logistics and purchasing, shipping and national sales team. The production team in Bulolo mans day and night shifts.

Wallace says over the past year Niu Homes has built several commercial buildings, including duplexes, 16- and 20-room complexes, and a specially designed 40-room complex. The company is still looking to diversify its range. ‘[We] are expanding to include agricultural sheds and workshops, offices, classrooms, mess halls, assembly halls, clinics and aid posts, and ablution blocks,’ adds Wallace.
