Who are we?

Swift Concepts specialises in delivering innovative prefabricated bathroom solutions to the New Zealand construction industry that streamline the traditional build programme and deliver a finished product of the highest quality. This is achieved through integration of technology, innovative future proofing and the involvement at every stage of our experienced team - from early concept design through to construction.

Swift Concepts is the result of a collaboration of ideas and experience from a number of sectors within the building industry. We are a team that came together working on large scale projects, forming a good working relationship through solution based problem solving and a dedication to creating positive outcomes.

Our team comprises Architects, Projects Managers, experienced Main Contractors and Installers. Our open and honest style of communication is a key factor in securing a successful trusted partnership with our clients.


What makes us different?

  • We are the only major Pod company in New Zealand with Directors who are Contractors, Architects and Project Mangers experienced in the design, construction and installation of bathroom pods
  • Swift Concepts design and manufacturing office is located in Christchurch, with directors also based in Auckland, Wellington and Nelson – all projects are designed for the New Zealand market.
  • A Project Engineer is assigned to each project; this enhances client/contractor interaction and is beneficial to the overall performance of the development.
  • We provide a full supply and install service including advice on how the pods should be cared for after install.
  • We are the only Pod company in New Zealand that can offer Integrated fully fitted Kitchens (complete with all appliances) and Walk In Wardrobe accessories (see pod types).

A bonus of having directors involved from different disciplines is the support we can offer. One of our team is always available to offer support and guidance in their specific discipline.

The Strength of a Trusted Partnership

Swift Concepts offers a trusted and reliable partner to deliver service excellence. Our open and honest style of communication is a key factor in securing a successful trusted partnership. This approach has proven to be the most effective way to minimise risk and provide  certainty over product reliability and ongoing costs, which is vital for our mutual benefit. To ensure quality  for customers Swift Concepts has partnered up with Bath & Co, Metra Panel, Ardex, Joinery Scene and Warmup. These partnerships enable us to guarantee quality to customers  and ensure direct lines of communication with key suppliers, thus allowing us to deliver products to tight programs without having to source suppliers that jeopardise quality.

Our Team

Quality and Assurance

The bathroom pods are manufactured in Christchurch, transported to site (NZ wide) and installed as a completed and fully tested unit. Our bathroom pods come completely fitted out with all sanitary ware, tapware, fixtures and fittings. The bathroom pods also include all plumbing, electrical, tiling and painting. The Pods are suited for both commercial and residential applications.

The floor, walls and ceiling are constructed from 36mm Metrapanel, BRANZ Appraisal No.364 (2007). Ardex 001 Waterproofing membrane is then applied to the tiled areas, BRANZ Appraisal No.472 & 473.

Warmup underfloor heating is installed to the floor area, BRANZ Appraisal No. 644(2017). Selected tiles supplied are laid to floor/walls with Ardex adhesive X 77. Electrical fittings installed are LED downlight, heated towel rail, LED mirror light and Power point. Electrical wiring is run on the exterior of the Metrapanel and terminates at a demarcation point. These works are signed off by a Certified Electrician.

Plumbing fittings installed are vanity unit, toilet and bath or shower. Pipework is also run on the exterior of the Metrapanel and terminates at a demarcation point. Plumbing is pressure tested and signed off by a Certified Plumber


Territory Authority and Building Consent

Swift Concepts will put together a package for building consent documents to supply to New Zealand Territory Authority's. We have experience in dealing with building consent documentation for commercial and residential buildings throughout New Zealand. Our team has very recently compiled and obtained building consent for pods on projects such as The Village Palms and Merivale Retirement Village in Christchurch.
