GHNZ offers builders and business mentoring from industry leaders

‘We are both builders, and knew for some time that we wanted to get involved with the construction industry at a different level.  We came across the Green Homes franchise opportunity and thought it looked like a great fit.  The company message fits right in with how we both feel about better quality building practices becoming the norm going into the future.  The support we’ve had has been awesome, the back office has helped the setup immensely along with social media and marketing expertise which is critical in establishing a presence in a competitive market.

The reaction to Green Homes in our area has been amazing, and we have had lots of enquiries simply because of the quality of our branding, it just really stands out.  Match this with the way we build houses and it really is a great formula.’

Frequently Asked Questions

Green Homes is New Zealand’s only building company that is compliant International Green Standards for energy efficiency (ISO 50001). We are extremely conscious of both giving you the warmest, healthiest, most energy efficient home possible, while also leaving the smallest possible carbon footprint on the environment. These considerations, in conjunction with slick architectural design, make Green Homes an extremely exciting prospect in the residential building market.

Green Homes is also famous for exceeding the building code standard. We’re not just building for compliance. We’re building to give you the house of your dreams.
