IQ Container Homes do not cut corners when it comes to using quality, safe, environmentally responsible methods and materials.

Future proof your investment, reduce ongoing running costs and your carbon footprint with an Innovative, Quality “IQ Container Home” – the Smart Solution.

Where else can you get all this as standard?

Eco-Friendly Construction

Interior is lined with Eco-Ply sourced from sustainable NZ forests and secured with non-toxic glues. Low VOC paint is used throughout and the flooring is anti-bacterial and 100% recyclable. LED lighting and energy efficient appliances such as the energy star certified dishdrawer minimises energy consumption. Offsite construction reduces waste and environmental impact.

Comfortable Temperature

High windows allow for cross ventilation enabling healthy airflow without compromising privacy or security. Double glazed windows and superior Insulation that exceeds council requirements ensures a comfortable temperature can be maintained year round with little need for additional heating and cooling

Photo-voltaic Systems

Solar panels are attached to the roof to capture sunlight and turn it into energy.  A grid connected system allows you to sell back excess energy to your electricity supplier and draw from them in times of low light, minimising your bill while ensuring you never run out of power

Rainwater Harvesting

IQ Container homes feature a built in 1000l Water tank which collects rainwater from the roof and recycles it for use in toilet flushing and laundry washing, which account for approximately 45% of household water use. This means a reduced water bill for you!

In times of drought mains water is used to top up the tank so you will never run out.
