Hi,

Use the form on the right to send us a message.

We've received a number of enquiries from people who are looking for help with their own projects and we're thinking of ways in which we can offer that help.

If you have a project you'd like to discuss please let us know what stage of concept or design you're at, when you hope to start build, and where your house will be built.

If you have a media enquiry please click here to view previous coverage, media packs, and a contact form to get in touch with the comms team. 

Thanks,
The ZEH team.

The Materials Selection page describes our selection of materials healthy for ourselves and the environment, and includes a video featuring the low-VOC paint.

One of the most visible products in the house that needed to be considered from both durability and toxicity perspectives is the paint. As well as being decorative it’s used to protect surfaces from degradation, which maximises the lifetime of products such as the timber joinery around the windows. But this need for protection needs to be balanced with the potential impact paint can have on the environment.

We chose to use a selection of waterborne paints from Resene which provide excellent protection and durability while releasing a far lower level of VOCs per litre than solventborne paints. VOCs or Volatile Organic Compounds can cause short and long term health issues and are released from paints (as well as other things used in houses).

All of the Resene paints we’ve used have been approved by the Environmental Choice programme, which allows customers to recognise products that minimise environmental effects in their production, distribution, use, and disposal. Environmental Choice NZ is a third-party certification scheme that guarantees a product is produced with a lower environmental impact than standard products on the market.
