Container Consultancy

Being involved in container home design and build projects since IQ Container Homes Ltd (IQCH) inception in 2012, Director Brenda Kelly is considered one of NZ’s leading experts in all things container related.

If you already have your own plans and just need advice or assistance, chances are Brenda can assist.

Some common services are:

  • Custom home concept plan and costings – from $750+gst

This service involves taking your ideas and requirements, sketching a 2d plan and basic 3d visual and providing an estimate if IQCH were to build for you. If you decide to proceed and build with IQCH, this fee goes towards your deposit (so is essentially refunded)

  • Consenting drawings – contact us for quote

IQCH architects and engineers have experience in container home construction so chances are they can save you some time and costs. Council will need to be convinced that materials used and structural reinforcing around cut outs meet building code requirements. We have experience in obtaining consents throughout the country largely due to our knowledge of specialist materials required and extensive supporting documentation.

“Brenda visited us in Waihi and spent some time walking through what was important to us and what we wanted to achieve…. We were immediately impressed with Brenda’s ideas… In short Brenda has provided us with so much useful information and ideas which we plan to use most, if not all towards making our home more spacious. Her ideas are totally in line with our meeting, showing that Brenda really was in tune with our needs from the onset…. We have no hesitation at all in recommending Brenda’s consultancy services..” Rob & Jeanette Copestake
