the ecostar difference
Ecostar Homes offers a range of new home designs to suit all modern lifestyle requirements. The design and specification of our plans incorporate both elements of the Homestar design principles, and cutting edge innovative technologies developed both in New Zealand and abroad.
All of our designs are fully adaptable to suit the needs of your family, however, if our standard plans don’t fit your requirements, we are also specialists in the design and build process so can help you with every step of designing your dream home.
We are at the forefront of technological innovation in the sustainable housing market, with many of our products being introduced in New Zealand for the first time.
Of course we offer the usual benefits of dealing with a reputable home builder, such as a guaranteed fixed price and completion date and a ten year HomeFirst Builders Guarantee. We also provide a complimentary two hour design consultation with our colour consultant, Jacqui of Twill Interiors.
All of our homes are assessed twice during the process. Once finalised the design is assessed to ensure that planning is on track, on completion the finished home is assessed again and issued with a Homestar Built Rating by one of our in-house Homestar Assessors.
As part of the design process we provide a free energy consultation with our specialist energy and heating engineer. They will be able to advise on any specific energy requirements you may have, and will be able to guide you on how you may be able to further improve the comfort of your new home.
All of our designs also include key Lifemark design standards. The standards cover the main areas in a home and ensure it is designed and built to be adaptable, accessible, usable, safe and offer lifetime value.
At Ecostar Homes we have systems in place to ensure that the building process doesn’t harm the environment and that materials used are responsibly sourced. We have strict waste management and recycling programmes in place to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill.
