eHaus Canterbury North
eHaus Canterbury North Team
Chatterton Builders are all proud Cantabrians. We have been building quality homes in Canterbury since 1998 and consciously moved towards more energy efficient homes 10 years ago.
Brent started the business as a two man team and has gradually built the business to what it is today; having studied business and farm management Brent also has the skills to not just build but to run a successful business. Brent is currently Chairman of the New Zealand Certified Builders Association, the very successful national membership organisation which caters to builders and their clients alike.
Through years of experience in the industry we have made a conscious move towards supporting the movement of thermally comfortable and energy efficient homes. To date we have completed numerous SIPs projects, from architectural homes to social housing and new schools. Our SIPs experience is highly sought after in the industry and we also undertake our own SIPs panel assembly for our own builds, and for others, at our panel assembly plant in Rangiora. Having been one of the first builders to achieve accreditation to build with Structural Insulated Panels in NZ, the desire to create more high quality, warm, healthy living environments has been realised through involvement with leaders in these construction methods, such as eHaus, APHA (Australasian Passive House Association), like minded designers, and supplier relationships and education.
Our experience in passive house construction, and our 'Passivhaus trade certification' is important in ensuring the house is of the highest quality and performs as intended.
We believe Passivhaus is the future of building. The movement overseas is testament to this guaranteed high performing design & construction method. It makes total sense, not only for our health, but in terms of 'real' energy savings.
In summary, we are passionate about creating warm, healthy, high quality homes using passive house principals, particularly where modeling, testing and certification can guarantee high performance levels through proven design and the right materials and quality driven building methodologies.
