eHaus Marlborough Team

Micky has 15 years experience as a Carpenter, gaining his training while serving in the army and air force for the New Zealand Defence Force. Building on the job in less developed countries throughout the world has driven Mickys desire to bring high quality, yet environmentally sustainable passive housing here.

Micky has been a licensed Building Practitioner since 2009, perfecting his craft while project managing and leading teams in multiple projects throughout the New Zealand and the Pacific such as school rebuild projects in the Solomon Islands, Health Centres in Kiribati, building upgrades in East Timor as well as residential and commercial projects throughout NZ. His drive, quality workmanship and commitment to the job evident in every build.

DB&R have chosen to align themselves with eHaus as they truly believe they are the world leaders in redefining the way we live. eHaus encompasses Micky and Tash’s objectives to change and refine the current building scene, hence becoming the eHaus Marlborough license holders. This hardworking team are enthusiastic about bringing their vision of contemporary and environmentally conscious builds to the local landscape.

The pair believe so much in this way of building that they are currently constructing an eHaus for Micky’s parents just out of Blenheim. If you are interested in achieving a more healthy, sustainable and stylish way of life, we encourage you to come down and see it for yourself.

Micky, Tash and the kids. Bringing high quality, stylish custom built, energy efficient, sustainable eco-friendly living spaces to the Marlborough region.

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.
