IQ Container Homes are designed with both the environment and your comfort in mind:

  • Shipping containers are made of non-corrosive corten steel, not only built to last but 100% recyclable at the end of their life. We recommend only using A grade (single trip) high cube containers
  • We specify superior insulation which exceeds building code requirements and therefore minimises the need for heating and cooling
  • Our standard practical designs feature eco-principles such as passive solar and cross ventilation or we can work with you on a custom design that meet your needs
  • Off-site construction minimises waste & site disturbance
  • Eco friendly products such as low VOC paints, timber sourced from sustainable NZ forests, LED lighting & Energy efficient appliances
  • Modular construction allows you to start small and add-on when need arises and finances allow
  • Quality materials and finishes as standard such as composite stone benchtop to kitchen and tile look lining to bathrooms
  • Choice of colours and finishes as standard with optional upgrades
  • Solar and rainwater harvesting add on packages available to further reduce your carbon footprint and running costs
  • Off-grid designs available
