ZCAP is a family-owned and operated company started by Henk Kanon, a Dutch immigrant. Today his sons Arnold and Patrick and their sister Nathalie are the directors and run the company.
From its beginnings as a traditional building company over 30 years ago, to setting up the modern, modular construction company of today has taken us at ZCAP 10 years. We wanted to get it absolutely right! We employ 14 staff in our factory and 44 others onsite.
We are now a partner of PrefabNZ, an organisation at the heart of innovative construction in New Zealand. It informs, educates and advocates for innovation and excellence in offsite design and construction throughout New Zealand.
Our revolutionary construction methods have grabbed the attention of the Ministry of Housing and Ministry of Education – for the latter we are in the process of designing a standard classroom that will roll out nationwide.
And with the massive interest in house building due to New Zealand’s current housing shortage, it seems that ZCAP’s faster construction blueprint is a model that’s arrived at exactly the right time.
