Energy Efficient Homes

Thermally efficient house - Hobart builder

Justin O'Connor Builders specialises in building energy efficient homes, German inspired Passive Houses (PassivHaus) and renovations-additions around the Hobart area.

We are a small business, meaning that you deal with the builder direct. Being a small business ensures quality control of building your energy efficient home, enabling us to micromanage your project. Our building success is achieved by ensuring your needs are met through careful consultation throughout the whole home building process.

Our attention to detail in the energy efficiency area resulted in achieving a nine star energy rating on a recent national award winning project. The success of the job was achieved by the close collaboration between the builder, designer and the clients.

During this project there was a constant need to think "outside the square" which resulted in the builder developing and utilising new energy efficient building techniques, and exceeded the expectations of all parties and enabled the amazing star rating.

We use thermally broken and timber composite double and triple glazed window units in our passive solar designed homes throughout Southern Tasmania. All of our thermally efficient homes are optimally built to utilise solar gain and are cross ventilated to minimise the need for cooling in summer and heating in winter. The inclusion of Heat Recovery Ventilation systems custom designed to suit the home are used on all our air tight buildings and Passive Houses.

We can build any type of house to suit your budget whether it is a standard first home or an architecturally designed energy efficient larger home.

We enjoy working with clients through every step of their building project. From looking at the developing plans, we offer suggestions as required and work with the designer to meet the brief of the client.
