Delivering Innovative Sustainable Design and Build Solutions

LiteGreen is a leading design and build company delivering simply better high performance, energy efficient, sustainable healthy homes throughout New Zealand. As featured on Grand Designs New Zealand it is our aim to make sustainable building common practice moving away from what is currently being accepted as a ‘Code Minimum Standard’ in New Zealand building.

Did you know that homes built to the current New Zealand Building Code today are the coldest, unhealthy homes you can legally build in New Zealand...

Common Question: How does a LiteGreen home deliver superior energy efficiency?

The answer is truly quite simple. The image below illustrates the difference between a code minimum home built today and a well insulated LiteGreen built home. In essence the home on the left will incur 12-20 air changes per hour. The LiteGreen home on the right will incur only 1 to 1.5 air changes per hour due to its superior insulation using building systems such as Habitech SIPS panels. In essence, the home on the right will require 12 to 20 times less energy to heat it as heat loss is kept to a minimum.

We build with either 170mm thick SIPS panels (Habitech) or a thermally broken 140mm wide timber frame.

The image also illustrates that we build a well insulated thermal envelope around the entire home e.g. foundation, walls and ceiling. LiteGreen achieves this by blending the right mix of technology, heating and ventillation systems, using superior materials, sustainable design principals and a passionate build team. Together, we will simply deliver better homes, often with little or no extra cost.


LiteGreen Projects is a combination of many years of experience and the gathering of like minded professionals to deliver a new accepted standard in building. We, like you are doing, researched the market to find the most suitable products to achieve our goal of building simply better homes. As such we will now look to complete 20 new builds by mid next year with further enquiries coming in daily.

We do appreciate however that there are many building companies / options out there which can all be very confusing. But, we promise you, once you have taken the time to view our website and share a coffee with us, you too will be just as passionate as we are about building sustainable, energy efficient homes. You too will then join the hundreds of other kiwi’s saying goodbye to building code minimum homes.
