Innovative Sustainable Building Solutions

If we are honest, the only truly sustainable building option is to not build at all, but if you have to build then why not build ‘Green’ or ‘LiteGreen’.

As we said on Grand Designs New Zealand, our mission is to make sustainable building common place. If you have found your way to this site then you are probably already on board with this idea and not in favour of what is currently being accepted as a ‘Code Minimum Standard’ in New Zealand building.

Did you know homes built to the current New Zealand Building Code are 

 the coldest homes you can legally build in New Zealand?!

We build with either 170mm thick SIPS panels (Habitech) or a thermally broken 140mm wide timber frame.  By doing so, our mission is to make sustainable and green building achievable and universal for all so that building sustainability becomes the new "norm" instead of building code minimum homes.

This image helps to illustrate a sustainable, energy efficient building system creating a thermal envelope around the entire home - foundation, walls and ceiling. We achieve this by blending the right mix of technology, heating and ventillation systems, superior materials such as Habitech SIPS panels, 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.
