Additional pricing information:
The NZSIP SmartPanel system provides a turnkey solution for creating the building's envelop, with minimal labour and materials required on site. Our prices reflect efficiency gained by in-factory installed panel components as below:
- All building m2 price includes timber such as panel top plates, panel joining splines, framing for door & window openings and all in-panel beam supports and joists.
- Prices include a high performance building wrap breathable moisture membrane applied as standard on all wall panels.
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.
Please note specialized specific engineering timber like structural lintels above an wide opening are not included in our m2 area prices. In-Panel molded engineering timber (HySpan or LVL13) and machined angled timber for roof joins ('Rake Plates') are supplied as separate prices according to project engineering requirements.
You will also 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.
Please send scale building elevations & plans in PDF format to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like a specific cost estimate.
NZSIP Smart Panels are certified for Code Mark which is an easily-understood and robust way to show our Smart Panels meet the requirements of the New Zealand Building Code when submitting plans for building consent.

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.
