Lollipops Educare

48 Ihakara Street, Paraparaumu

Investor, Stuart Pritchard, contacted Homestead Construction again in 2015 to build a child care centre in Paraparaumu for the Nationwide chain ‘Lollipops Educare’. The 522m2 building was built using Homestead’s precast construction system. Homestead’s specialised Precast team inset a design into the precast panels which resembled the branches of a great tree. This theme carried on throughout the interior of the child care and the aluminium facade outside the entrance.

Excellence in project management was what marked this job. Homestead Construction worked to a very tight timeline so the childcare centre could open by Feb 1.


We have worked with Homestead Construction on 2 new large concrete building projects on the Kapiti Coast.  During that time we would have to say the experience and detail to attention was excellent - to ensure the project was to the building programme, ahead of completion dates, on budget and on time. We chose concrete for sustainable natural material, faster building time, warm in winter and cool in summer, user friendly, strong, sound-proven, lower maintenance and longer life. I have no hesitation in recommending Homestead Construction to others for future building developments. We wish Homestead Construction well for the future and thank you.
