At EasyBuild, we’re committed to providing high quality, excellent value for money homes for New Zealanders, around the country.
EasyBuild is a New Zealand owned and operated family business. Our houses are designed for tough NZ conditions and manufactured right here in New Zealand at our Upper Hutt factory. We source our products locally wherever we can.
We’re also proud to provide an affordable new home solution that creates jobs across New Zealand, on our projects and building sites, at our Upper Hutt based manufacturing plant and support office, and our teams of Preferred Builders and their staff nationwide.
From their many years in the New Zealand building industry, our founding directors Mike Fox and Luke Ryan were only too aware of the shortage of quality, top value for money, affordable, energy efficient homes in New Zealand.
So Mike paired up with Luke and his late father, Dennis Ryan – the creators of EasyBuild’s unique construction system to bring EasyBuild to life, and give Kiwis nationwide the opportunity to build their own, new, high quality, warm, energy efficient homes.
Luke and Dennis came up with their original modular concept in the late 1970s, decades ahead of their time, after seeing the benefits of modular housing overseas. They took the time to perfect the concept and built hundreds of homes. With a change in the market to bigger, more expensive homes, they paused production and focused on other building projects.
In 2015 EasyBuild as we know it today was founded, with updated designs and materials to suit our modern lifestyles and needs, when it became increasingly clear that quality, affordable housing was needed more than ever.
