A home-builder says factory-built homes are part of the solution to the housing crisis.

The Government's looking to companies that construct homes in factories to help reach the Kiwibuild goal of 100,000 affordable homes.

But Generation Homes CEO Kevin Atkinson told Kate Hawkesby it's not the silver bullet.

"I can see a place for factory-built housing among New Zealand but it's got to be amongst a package of other solutions and a lot of that has to come down to cost and land and infrastructure."
