Monolith Systems was created by NZ Builders to sell Concrete Insulated Panels (CIP) designed for the residential market. NZ has spent many years building and refining CIP which have been prominently featured in architecturally striking residences in and around the Pacific Northwest. This product is available to architects, developers, builders, and homeowners.

Building using CIP comes with a range of benefits, including insulation, energy efficiency, and robust durability. The Tilt-Up Wall System emerges as an appealing choice.

WHAT WE DO

CUSTOM HOMES
We work together with your design team to create the plan for your home that meets your specific needs, budget, and timeline. If you’re just getting started, we are happy to connect you with an architect, designer, and real estate team that we’ll work closely with to ensure a seamless process.
RENOVATIONS
Let’s face it–living on an island means space is limited. If you love your property, but your home needs improvements, let’s create a plan to improve the health, performance, and durability of your existing home. There are circumstances where the damage is too great and a renovation is not feasible, or environmentally ethical. We accept renovation projects on a case-by-case basis.
CONCRETE TILT-UP
NZ Builders is one of the first construction companies to introduce tilt-up Concrete Insulated Panel (CIP) homes to Canada. Developed in Germany, the technology has become popular in many countries because of its its high durability capabilities in the Pacific Northwest. When designed intentionally with passive solar design CIP homes naturally heat and cool your home using its thermal mass properties, this produces a comfortable and consistent temperature creating a comfortable home to live in.
MAINTENANCE
We pride ourselves in building low-maintenance homes that allow you to spend less time fixing, and more time, well, living. But the key to keeping a low-maintenance home in top shape is to know how to take care of it. We provide our clients with the information they need to ensure longevity, and we also provide ongoing maintenance packages as an additional service.

OUR VALUES

SUSTAINABILITY
We build homes that last, and our emphasis is on durability and comfort. Sustainability to us means building for the generations to come. Cutting down on ongoing maintenance costs and implementing building techniques that are simple and long-lasting. We build for your grandchildren's children.
HEALTH
Everybody deserves to live in a healthy home. We employ building practices and materials that are resistant to common west coast climate culprits such as rot and mold, and we use high-end air ventilation systems that improve air quality. We build homes that are designed to enhance the overall health and wellbeing of the homeowners and surrounding communities.
WORKPLACE ENVIRONMENT
Our workplace is robust with training and continuing education options, and we encourage our team to pursue professional and personal development opportunities by offering a learning allowance for all of our employees, regardless of position. We provide a clear career path and ongoing mentorship for our staff.

OUR TEAM

Building a custom home requires more than just high-level craftsmanship and carpentry skills–it’s who we are that makes us truly unique.

We may be biased, but we think we’ve assembled a pretty top-notch group of humans.

WORKING WITH US

Many of our team have been with us since the start, which speaks for itself. We take on projects that are unique and different, and that push the envelope when it comes to building science. If you’re on our team, be prepared to challenge yourself and grow your craft with each project.

While it makes sense to have a tiered leadership structure in any construction company, we operate with an “all hands” mentality–we’re all here to help each other succeed, and nobody is above getting their hands dirty.

Want to work with us? We’re always accepting resumes. Send yours to info@nzbuilders.com.
