TERRENCE BRYERS, Certified PassivHouse Tradesperson, Master Builder, LBP Carpentry Site 2. eHaus Licensee, building to the eHaus requirements of the eHaus brand to meet the PassivHouse standard. The brands international ability to deliver a cosy interior with an 80 percent reduction in heating and energy costs. We can guarantee that the performance of an eHaus is vastly superior to a home build to the New Zealand building code. This means an average interior temperature between 18 - 25 degrees with relative humidity between 40 - 60 rh, making conventional heating and air-conditioning systems obsolete.
The small amount of energy required to run the building can be enhanced by introducing free energy in the form of Solar, Wind or Water, this is why PassivHouse and sustainable living go hand in hand creating a Certified eHaus Zero home.
We are building homes that use the latest high-performance technologies, this is the way forward for the building industry.

This eHaus has achieved an air tightness result of 0.28ACHn50 the highest to date. Average (Certified PassivHaus) is 0.6 air changes an hour at a pressure of 50 Pascals. Standard new NZ built house will leak at a rate between 4-8 ACHn50 and a Villa will be 25-30ACHn50.

About eHaus

eHaus – a brand of ecoBuild Developments Ltd (eDL) was established in 2010 by Baden & Glenda Brown and Jon Iliffe with the dream of creating a New Zealand owned and operated specialist design and construction company using PassivHaus build & design principles.

Often referred to as the ‘world’s leading standard in energy efficient design” the German engineering intelligence behind PassivHaus encompasses unprecedented Health, Comfort, Energy efficiency benefits and high quality buildings.
Baden a New Zealand Master Builder of 20+ years and Jon a HND Mech Prod Engineer from Rolls Royce motor cars in the UK, realised the opportunity this revolutionary way of building PassivHaus bought to the New Zealand building industry and the incredible benefits these spaces offered.
That same year they both studied and qualified in the use of the German PassivHaus software through the Auckland Unitec facility. The software, at the very heart of the build, models the performance of how the building will perform before a single stake is put in the ground. They then invested 100’s of hours translating PassivHaus to the New Zealand conditions, applying the building science to the 18 climate zones for both the North and South Islands.
Together with Glenda, a member of the NZ Institute of Directors and an accredited business mentor who has 30+ years working in Chartered Accountant offices, has seen the business grow a nationwide team of qualified PassivHaus designers and tradespeople. eHaus is now recognised as award winning, and the leading player in the New Zealand PassivHaus market.
