Why conventional homes are uncomfortable, energy-hungry, bad for the environment, and the families that live in them.

Rectangle 3036

That’s because too many modern homes are [slapped together / built in bulk] with outdated building materials, careless workmanship, and generic designs that make living there uncomfortable and even unhealthy.

Builders try to overcome these issues by covering defects with plaster and paint and adding air-conditioners to every room to make them liveable. But there’s a better way to build or renovate a house.

Have you ever been in a house that feels so hot and stuffy you lose all your energy? Or a house that’s so cold and dank you feel yourself getting sick? Or maybe a house that looks good at first glance, but when you look closer you can see the gaps, cracks, and signs of poor workmanship?

Introducing A Completely New Way Of Building That Delivers An All Electric Home, On Time And Within Budget Every Time

Building and renovating are exciting. But they can also be fraught with confusion, chaos, and expensive risks. Our unique and proven process gives you the stunning energy and carbon-zero home you’ve always wanted, and an enjoyable building experience along the way. It is founded on three key principles:

Group 11944


specifically for your land to make the most of environmental strengths (natural light, breeze and shade), and overcome potential challenges (afternoon sun, sloping ground).

Group 11946

Proven building materials…

that work in the real world and not just in the carefully controlled environment of a test lab.

Group 11948

Meticulous building processes…

that ensure products are installed correctly to maximise their effectiveness and appearance – with no gaps to allow transfer of energy or pollutants.

The end result is a home that looks better, lasts longer, and is more comfortable, healthy, and energy efficient.

Scott’s team has always had an interest in healthy building

Especially internal air quality, but this became an obsession when he built his own family home to help his daughter who suffered from severe allergies. After they moved in, her Paediatrician said, “I don’t know exactly what you did, but it sure worked.” And Scott’s daughter has been almost completely allergy-free since.
