What you get

A complete building supplied in kit format together with a full selection of interior decor and finishes.

All parts of the building envelope and interior decoration items are assembled together as a ‘kit’ to provide a complete building package ready for assembly on site.

This home is supplied as a prefabricated kit complete with all of the structural elements, components and equipment required to assemble the building to a fully water and airtight condition and a full selection of decor and finishing materials.

What you don't get

Things that need to be prepared before delivery of a home

Light steel frame homes are designed to be erected on a concrete slab. Foundations, footings and a concrete slab should be prepared before the building arrives. We provide detailed site preparation instructions and concrete slab plans to enable local engineers to design a foundation suitable for local ground conditions.

Sub slab services (water, power, waste and rainwater drainage) should be integrated into the ground works. Site preparation work should be completed by local contractors prior to the arrival of the building.

The unique, patented, interlocking insulated steel frame panel system is incredibly easy to assemble allowing this building to be erected in less than one week.

Our team can install the building or it can be assembled by local contractors with the help of full installation drawings, which are supplied, under the supervision of our experienced technicians.

Assembly of Bauhu buildings is uncomplicated and does not require any specialist equipment or particular skills. The use of local labour under the supervision of our staff is likely to provide the most cost effective method of assembly.


Delivery to anywhere

This building fits inside a single 40'HC standard shipping container and can be shipped anywhere in the world by sea or by road. We would be pleased to provided shipping services but prices are unpredictable and difficult to estimate without a fixed delivery date. However, we do not seek to profit from transport services so please be assured that we will obtain the most cost effective service at the time of delivery on your behalf.

The building is packaged at the factory and loaded into suitable transport for delivery direct to the work site. The building arrives on site with all of the components required for the complete installation.
