Māori entrepreneur revolutionises building foundations

Māori entrepreneur revolutionises building foundations


Christchurch business Mr Box is transforming
how foundations are built. It’s a patented innovative
formwork system which reduces costs, man-hours, with every part is lightweight
and 100% recyclable. It’s the brainchild of
Te Arawa descendant Dion Kerr who caught up
with Pere Wihongi today. Mr Box – an idea from outside of the box. And the idea
has ticked all the boxes for fast and efficient building
of Christchurch homes. But what makes
this formwork system different is that it’s made from aluminium. So the quality of the work
is better, the time to build is shorter, and it costs cheaper. However, the main drive for Kerr is to give back to the community
that raised him. And he encourages Maori to take on
the entrepreneurial challenge. What matters is taking
the first step, for yourself
and for your community. Pere Wihongi, Te Karere.
