Higgs Building Co.
Beautifully Crafted. Consciously Built.
We are building a more conscious industry.
At Higgs Building Co. we’re conscious of our impact on future generations. In fact, we’re revolutionising the building industry because of it.
Time living overseas taught Higgs founder, Shaun, two things that would change his approach to building forever. The first, that New Zealand homes aren’t as energy-efficient as they should be. And the second, how important it is to keep our homeland healthy for future generations. His solution? Starting Higgs Building Co.
As a family-run business, we want to do better by our children. Our clients and our future generations deserve homes that are dry and healthy, without a big environmental footprint. They deserve a building industry that makes conscious choices; choices that are as beautifully crafted as they are environmentally considered.
With each home we build, we’re helping to make this the new standard for building in New Zealand.
We’re helping to make a future that is Beautifully Crafted. Consciously Built.
Our why. We believe our clients and our earth deserve better. That’s why we’re here, to challenge the way things have always been done, and to create a better future for Kiwi families and the environment.
Our vision is for every Kiwi to live in an energy-efficient, high-performing home, it’s better for our people and better for our environment.
