Galloway Project


Galloway, Alexandra

306m2 house & associated hard landscaping

Working with our clients, they put full trust in CBG as specialists on their project set on 800 acres in Galloway. Through this, we were given the unique opportunity to implement all the skills and knowledge of our entire team including design and engineering.

 

This home incorporates a MAXraft system which is a fully insulated and thermally broken slab system,  165mm SIP panel exterior walls, thermally broken aluminium double glazed joinery with low E xcel glass, solar panels, 215mm SIP roof panels, floor to ceiling interior doors, a Stiebel Eltron Mechanical Ventilation unit and the clients very own wool carpets.

The final result not only looks spectacular but has set a national record for the most airtight Formance SIP Panel home in 2022.

This home has a blower door test result of 0.16 air changes per 50 pascals. This means less heating demand and reduced running costs

Alpine Estate
, Wanaka

170m2 house & associated landscaping

A special project for us, bringing our vision to a reality. 

Our goal was to create a home where we could educate people and welcome them to come and feel the difference.

A MAXraft slab with 165mm SIP panel walls, 215mm SIP panel roof, triple glazed thermally broken aluminium joinery with Low E glass, a Zehnder mechanical ventilation system with heat recovery, electric heating, pv solar with battery storage and an EV car charger to really future proof this home.

This home has a blower door test result of 0.18 air changes per 50 pascals.

Kirimoko Project


Kirimoko Park, Wanaka

214m2 house & associated hard landscaping

On this project we worked with a client who knew what she wanted when it came to superior performance housing. Together, we designed a home that suited her individual needs and a site-specific building platform. The house incorporates a MAXRaft slab - fully insulated and thermally broken slab system, 165mm SIP panel exterior walls, cedar windows and doors with Low E Xcel glass, solar rib roofing (solar laminates), a combination of 215mm SIPS panel roof and truss, radiators throughout and floor to ceiling interior doors.

 

The hard landscaping included a schist retaining wall built by Clint and the power of the earthwork’s contractor, timber retaining walls, schist memorial garden, kwila decking, concrete mag swirl footpaths and an asphalt driveway.

West Meadows Views

West Meadows, Wanaka

300m2 home and garage

A more traditional home with antique white blocks and cedar in less exposed areas to keep the maintenance low. A combination of MAXRaft slab, SIP panels, balanced ventilation system, radiators and some gorgeous finishes. This is a stunning family home with a decent garage or “man shed” as our client called it. Spectacular 360-views and a delightful couple to work with.

West Coast Wonder

Hannah’s Clearing, Haast

108m2 Home with enclosed patio

A remote location 100m from the ocean, the highest rain on record since 1940, pesky sandflies to boot and getting the goods over the Haast Pass with no damage – this build certainly had its challenges, but what a spot and what a result.

 

The project involved clearing bush and forming the building platform and driveway before we could even look at building. A MAXRaft slab with 165mm SIP panel walls, 215mm SIP panel roof, double glazed, thermally broken aluminium joinery with Low E-glass, a balanced ventilation system and a very cool outdoor area created with the protection of bug screens – this is another peak performance home sitting amongst the beautiful West Coast native bush.
