Enviro Homes (Design) and Houseworx (Construction) are Wellington based Design and Build Companies specialising in the creation of new homes.
We offer a concept to completion package or an independent design service if you wish to engage another builder for your project. We also undertake some work when designed by another architect.
The team at Enviro / HouseWorx has a combined industry experience of over 100 years. Our team includes a Registered Architect and qualified Designer.
Our projects have included townhouses, large residential homes, light commercial buildings and extensive refurbishments.
We advise on site suitability, engineering requirements and undertake Resource Consent work where necessary.
The initial brief covers your wish-list alongside the anticipated budget.
The sites north orientation, any vegetation, views, and adjacent properties are considered at concept stage.
The most enjoyable home is one designed specifically for the client and the characteristics of the site.
Working together at design stage we ensure a balance between the brief, the site and the budget.
The most suitable materials & finishes are suggested, with particular attention to creating a low maintenance, well-performing, low energy home.
When the working drawings are complete and Master Build (fixed price) Contract signed, the documents are lodged with the Local Authority.
Work commences when the Building Consent has been granted.
We schedule a time-line for the build and arrange for regular on-site meetings with you to discuss any questions and update on progress.
When the home is finished, a completion certificate is signed, Compliance Certificate issued by the Territorial Authority, final money is paid and you take possession.
In due course we undertake a maintenance inspection and any remedial work is completed.
Over the years, HouseWorx has built an enviable reputation in the design and build industry. This is based on the awards we have gained but more importantly the relationships we maintain with our clients, suppliers and contractors.

We would not hesitate in recommending HouseWorx to anyone thinking of undertaking a building project.” Mark & Belinda,
