"To be offering the PassivHaus way with eHaus in Taupo is really exciting to us"

Both Mat and Caroline were born and raised in rural Waikato, New Zealand. Mat began his carpentry apprenticeship in Hamilton and once qualified started his own business in the Te Awamutu / Cambridge area. He took on many types of building projects from new home builds and renovations to school upgrades and light commercial work. After Caroline was offered a job in Auckland, they decided to make the most of the opportunity and made the move to central Auckland city. Within a short time, Mat had re-established his business and formed a strong team of qualified builders. He enhanced his skill base by taking on projects like historical villa and bungalow restorations and the re-build of leaky homes, all while juggling confined work spaces, restricted site access and traffic!
While enjoying their life in the city, both Mat and Caroline couldn’t shake their affiliation to rural New Zealand and spent most of their free time back in the Waikato and Taupo region. Once children came along, they decided to move to Taupo and back to family and friends and enjoying the great outdoors!

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.
