With a range of partners across Australia, America, Europe and China, we are constantly looking for products that pass an assessment matrix to determine if products are suitable for the Australian Market. Consideration is given to:
- Suitability. Does the product fit the Australian Market?
Australia has diverse climatic conditions ranging from extremely hot to extremely cold. Building products must provide systems and building envelopes that take the diverse conditions into account. ReGen Building Solutions believes it has identified product ranges that are suitable for all our climatic conditions.
- Price. Can it be brought into the Australian Market at an affordable rate?
As far as possible we try to ensure that our products are comparative or more affordable than existing products on the market whilst ensuring that performance is greater in either one or a number of elements i.e. thermal, acoustic, workability, durability or aesthetics.
- Durability. How long and how well will the product stand the test of time.
All of the products released by ReGen Building Solutions have been evaluated against testing data provided by the manufacturers to ensure they comply with Australian Standards and have appropriate warranties that reflect durability requirements of the Building Industry. Test data is available upon request.
- Uniqueness: Does the product have unique features not readily available in Australia?
In today’s market consumers, and building designers are often looking for unique product attributes that improve on performance or design criteria. Many of the products soured are unique in their features and benefits.
- Conformance: Does the product conform to Australian Standards?
There have been many products introduced to the Australian market where the suppliers have not benchmarked the products to the performance requirements of the National Construction Code (NCC). There are many elements of this benchmarking that must be complied with and ReGen Building Solutions is committed to ensuring appropriate conformance and seek third party endorsement through well respected qualified engineers.
- Performance: Does the product have greater performance capabilities?
Conformance is only one element for building materials and systems. This is generally the minimum requirements of the NCC. ReGen Building Solutions seeks products and building system that out-perform the minimum requirements in areas such as thermal resistance, acoustics, and spanning capabilities. Whilst it is difficult to bench-mark all products on the market, the products that we have chosen each have their own performance enhancements beyond the standards within the NCC.
Conformance and Commercialisation
Having identified appropriate products, ReGen Building Solutions in conjunction with our partners ensures the products conform to Australian Standards. This process often requires mapping the products against NCC Codes and Australian Standards and ensuring appropriate testing has been conducted through approved testing laboratories.
Commitment to Continuous Improvement
ReGen Building Solutions has a commitment to the Continuous Improvement Process (CIP) based on the Kaizen model. Kaizen Kai (“change”) Zen (“good) literally meaning “Improvement”. We are continually looking to our suppliers and manufacturers to introduce change in supply chains and manufacturing process to ensure customer satisfaction.
