At Spanbild, we only build what we manufacture. This enables us to maintain consistency in the quality control and production of each building and ensure our own products continue to be manufactured to the highest standards.


Each building is predominantly manufactured on-site, with steel cladding, roofing, and structural components pre-formed, and timber pre-cut to precise design specifications. This process provides a ready-to-build pack that enables Spanbild to rigorously control quality, while giving customers the flexibility to build themselves or use the expert construction services provided by local franchise teams.

Spanbild’s Christchurch and Matamata based plants operate to the highest standards of safety and efficiency.

Our commitment to employing sustainable practices and the use of environmentally friendly materials underscores the company’s focus on setting high standards of both production and corporate responsibility.

With a strong focus on employee wellbeing, Spanbild promotes a robust health and safety culture that has seen us achieve ACC tertiary status. The company continually evaluates systems and protocols that drive superior performance in these areas.


Spanbild’s range of timber-framed houses, garages, farm buildings and sleepouts are delivered primarily through the Versatile retail network.

A market leader in home-building for over 40 years, Versatile has a large range of architecturally driven two, three and four bedroom family homes. With a range of customisable options, these quality, timber framed products offer versatility, strength, and durability.

Timber framed homes have also formed the basis of many highly successful public projects, delivered in extremely short time frames for New Zealand’s Ministry of Business, Innovation and Enterprise.

The company also offers a range of timber-framed, steel-clad garages, workshops and sleepouts. The company’s timber products also include farm buildings, from gable-roofed, to lean-to sheds, available in kitset or as a fully constructed option.



Spanbild’s innovative steel framing design, using quality New Zealand steel, provides strength, durability, and engineering flexibility for a range of farm, commercial buildings, and garages.

Retailed through the Totalspan network, the distinctive open span structure of Spanbild’s steel buildings provides real versatility for any project. Standard buildings can be customised – from three metres to over 24 metres wide and any length, with a wide range of engineering features to choose from.

Spanbild’s steel framed designs have also formed the basis of several unique projects – from state-of-the-art laboratories to large scale dairy milking sheds.

Roll formed in Spanbild’s manufacturing facility, high quality, durable steel also forms the basis of a variety of cladding, roofing, and component elements throughout the Spanbild range.



The Spanbild networks have broad experience using panel products as components in a wide range of building solutions.
