Eco-homes are not just the future, they are the present. This is the way to look at building in the 21st century. Environmentally friendly, thoughtful, minimal. In today’s world, the responsible way is to only build what you need and build it with sustainable materials. You could even call them eco prefab homes or eco cottages in New Zealand. Whatever they are known as the fact that they can look fabulous and do everything you need is a testament to our way of thinking and our design skills.

Are you looking for eco prefab homes in NZ? You've come to the right place.

Ecopod is an industry leader in transportable, environmentally friendly homes. We use architects and engineers alongside years of building expertise to construct and implement sustainable yet aesthetic eco-homes. But firstly, let's break down exactly what an eco home is - and why exactly they qualify to be called eco.

What Is an Eco House?

Several factors make up our eco homes in NZ. Firstly, we construct our houses to be energy efficient (unlike lower-quality prefabricated buildings, which utilise steel or metal framing which transfer heat – making it a less energy-efficient choice). Our homes are constructed within closely controlled factory settings, meaning they have a much lesser impact on the environment. Also, it means the build is completed quicker, and the cost of site works for our clients is much lower.

The materials of the ecopod are inherently built to conserve energy. We construct with New Zealand pine - a material with many environmental properties. As well as capturing carbon, pine is a great insulator and can be easily reworked if required in the future.

From the bottom to the top of the pod, its design screams maximum energy efficiency. Double-glazed windows and glass wool insulation mean lower heating costs. Our Ecopods also contain sophisticated polystyrene underfloor insulation. The ceiling and walls are also made from 65% recycled materials, or materials from forestry which would otherwise have gone to waste. The high performance of our ecopods helps cut costs from energy bills - while protecting the environment.

Part of what solidifies the eco in eco house is their efficient use of land. Intelligent, thoughtful designs maximise space and functionality while conserving the physical footprint. Plus, their transportability and adaptability mean they can be reused over and over for various purposes (home office, gym, studio, sleepouts, guest dwellings, etc.). As minor dwellings, ecopods are a great solution to increasing urban density to support the growing needs of our cities without expanding into green or brown-field rural sites.

But what really clinches the pods' eco status is that they're built to last. Cheaper prefabricated homes will deteriorate more quickly due to less robust material selection and workmanship which cuts corners. What sets our transportable homes apart is their exceptional sustainability. They're built to last for over 50 years, and properly consented to the site for compliance with the key standards which further minimises environmental impacts.

To solidify our dedication to environmentally conscious innovation, Ecopod Concepts is proud to be a member of the Sustainable Business Network and our designs meet the green building criteria for Homestar 6.

    MATT, HANNAH & MIA (COROMANDEL)

    We did a lot of research on transportable baches and couldn't beat Eco Pods for style, craftsmanship and price. We worked with Steve and co to shape a pod that was perfect for our section! It was great to sit down with the team and plan everything from the layout, aluminium joinery, to little things like the location of power points and kitchen shelving. Our L pod was delivered just in time for a big family Christmas at the beach and now we're super keen to get the second pod underway! 

    JOHN, SENIOR ENGINEER, CHESTER

    It has been a pleasure dealing with Steve and the Ecopod's crew over the past months and if I hear of other projects I will point them in your direction Senior Engineer responsible for Kumeu Arts Center Development
