Energy Efficient Homes

We offer our expertise in creating healthier, energy efficient and sustainable homes in modern, boutique designs throughout Queenstown and Wanaka. 

Our builders and architects use the latest in sustainable and energy efficient materials to build homes that are better on your health, your pocket and ultimately, the environment.


Energy efficient homes in Queenstown and Wanaka are becoming increasingly popular. We build homes that are better on your pocket, your health, and the earth. 

Our energy efficient builds incorporate the latest features and materials, including (but not limited to):

  • Sustainable Material
  • New framing materials like SIPS Panels for greater warmth
  • Solar generated electricity or water heating
  • Underfloor water heating
  • Using concrete and glass construction to trap the sun's warmth through the day, instead of paying for power
  • Passive solar environments reducing airflow and enhancing heat retention capabilities

Whether you are looking to build or renovate you now have the opportunity to source energy efficient materials that can assist in the pursuit of sustainable living without sacrificing comfort or style.


Out of the Box Considerations: 

Not only do our resources for energy efficient homes save you money in the long run, but they also result in faster and more efficient home builds. Our team have extensive knowledge in the energy efficiency, taking considerations into account that may be missed by other companies, such as: 

  • Underground water tanks for less wastage
  • Planning the direction of the house to get maximum sunlight (and natural heat)
  • Using materials that best absorb the sun's heat for warmth in the night
  • When and where to use solar panels
  • How to maximise your surrounding landscape
