When you consider a Smart Series home design, you save the initial designer fees and the initial engineering, You will still need a site specific plan and a licenced builder to complete your dream home.
Smart Panel PRICING:
The cost of a NZSIP Smart Panel standard design should only equate to approximately 8 to 12% more than a timber framed building of the same design, yet it will double, if not triple your homes energy performance and comfort .
We offer a full envelope solution or you can have walls and roof panels and decide what sort of slab you want.
All prices includes timber such as panel top plates, panel joining splines, framing for door & window openings and all in-panel beam supports and joists.
Prices also include a high performance building wrap breathable moisture membrane applied as standard on all wall panels.
You will have bottom plate timber costs that are specific to the foundation used as an additional building cost, and the cost of fixings and air tightness tapes will be estimated specifically for each build.
All internal fit-outs, cladding, windows and external features are the responsibility of the owner.
Panel prices are comparable to timber frame solutions due to reduction in labour but with far better energy performance.
If you want your own individual design
If you want to consider your architectural design in NZSIP Smart Panels, then the cost will further increase based on the complexity of the design and the size and shape of the panels.
If you have a bespoke design, you will have specialised specific engineering timber like structural lintels above a wide opening that are not included in our prices. In-Panel moulded engineering timber such as HySpan or LVL13 are not included in the panels and will be supplied at a separate price based on engineering requirements. If you are considering a bespoke panel home please send your plans through to email@example.com
International studies show you should expect about 50% labour content saving compared to the construction of a standard code compliant timber frame home, with even more savings if comparing to building with air tightness wraps and air barrier taping.
Our Pricing does not include install labour costs. Please contact us to discuss using our in-house install team.

The concept of building a house with no heating in one of the coldest parts of New Zealand may sound a little strange – but that didn't stop Queenstown couple Michael Sly and Jodie Lynes from creating a cost-effective climate house.
Not only is the stunning result a constant 23 degrees, but it also produces enough energy for its own electrical consumption and to charge their electric car.
