Building Taranaki with the best


Steve & Susie Hofmans

We are both born and bred here in Taranaki, Steve from Stratford and Susie from New Plymouth.

We’ve been in business for 18 years, but Steve has been in the building trade for over 19 years. Steve is the face of the business working with clients on a day-to-day basis, while I (Susie) look after all the administration and Health and Safety and Sales of our eHaus passive homes. Steve was President of Taranaki Registered Master Builders from 2015-2017 and sits on many building related committees. This allows Steve to stay abreast of building trends and changes to building legislations.

Steve and I are extremely passionate about delivering the best possible product and strive for every project to be to an award winning standard. We’ve chosen our staff carefully and are proud to have ambitious, motivated and skilled team members on board.

When we are not working we love to be outdoors with our children. Steve and I have always been interested in the outdoors and enjoy, running, biking, Kayaking and pretty much anything that will challenge us. We’re now enjoying introducing the love of the outdoors to our two children.
