High Performance

Beach Drive, Victoria, BC

This industrial-inspired, high-performance design boasts some of the most diverse concrete finishes we’ve seen–one entire exterior panel features a life-size image of a Garry oak tree, taken by the homeowners and etched permanently into the concrete.

Award Winning

Wain Road, Victoria, BC

This home was constructed using concrete insulated panel (CIP) building technology, using a tilt-up method, which at the time was unique to the residential building industry in Canada.

Off The Grid

Salt Spring Island, BC

A passive-inspired concrete home built entirely off-grid using solar power alone. Designed using passive and active solar energy, rainwater collection, and a permaculture landscape, this home is entirely self-sufficient.

Passive Solar

Sunshine Coast, BC

A passive concrete home designed to be warm in the winter months and cool in the summer months using the thermal mass of the concrete to regulate heat all year long and 7’ overhangs to provide ample shading when you need it.
EXPERIENCE THE WARMTH OF PASSIVE SOLAR DESIGN
NZ Builders believes in using intentional design that leverages solar energy to naturally heat and cool your home. This produces a comfortable, consistent temperature while reducing energy costs.

We have built homes using steel, wood, and concrete using this design methodology.
