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.

eHaus Vision:

We live PassivHaus … it’s what we do.

Every eHaus is designed and constructed using the International Passive House design software – proven performance to live by. Healthy, comfortable, all year round lifestyle. This is what sets us apart in the industry. Here at eHaus we believe this is the future and benchmark for all New Zealand builds.

eHaus Values:

“We are proud to be leading the way in PassivHaus design, architecture and construction. We are a company that prides itself on innovation and excellence, founded on our specialist expertise in the market.”

Our eHaus builds

Featured Build: Triple Award winning

We are proud of our  quirky Te Horo bach winning the Resene Interior and Exterior awards at the 2018 Resene Total Colour Awards.

This fun project was inspired to used the colours found in the dried grasses at the site to blend with the wider dune environment.

This is not the first colour award for the bach.  At the 2018 NZIA Wellington awards it also took out the Resene Colour ward as well as the Housing Award.

Although not a Passive House we are proud to showcase this build and the awards that have been given to it
