Our prefabricated system builds high performance, highly energy efficient healthy homes and Passive Houses in Sydney and NSW.
Ultra energy efficient and Passive House prefabricated building system.
Living in a Passive House system is the healthiest, most comfortable and high-performance building available.
A Passive House is designed to optimise natural light and warmth, while minimising unwanted airflow. This creates a truly comfortable, highly energy efficient home that’s warm in winter, cool in summer, free from uncomfortable draughts, and unhealthy dust and mould.
In a Passive House you will typically save 80-90% on heating and cooling, compared to a traditionally built home.
Passive Houses and renovations built with our building system meet the most rigorous building performance standards, delivering what’s important today and into the future: health, comfort and highest-level energy efficiency.
Not just a name…
Not any home can be a Passive House.
Every Passive House must be designed and built to the International Passive House Building Standard.
Every Passive House and energy efficient home and renovation should have:
- High-performance windows – to eliminate condensation and hot and cold transfer
- Super insulation – to eliminate cold and hot spots and prevent mould
- Airtight construction – to eliminate unwanted airflow in your house
- No thermal bridges – to eliminate hot and cold spots
- Optimal orientation – to maximise natural light and warmth and cool
- Internal ventilation – to allow fresh air in whilst preventing warm or cool air from escaping
Traditional houses have significant air leakage from the inside to outside, causing uncomfortable drafts, cold spots, condensation and mould.
The key to delivering all the comfort and health benefits possible for a Passive House is ensuring the home is airtight and has none of this air leakage.
Our prefabricated, panelised building system is specifically designed to eliminate any air leakage in the building, so you’ll always feel comfortable – and your building will be the healthiest it can be.
The Passive House design and construction process is checked and verified. Passive House is the only standard that does this – no other energy rating system checks the performance of what has been built.
PREFABRICATION FOR NEW HOUSES AND RENOVATIONS
Our prefabricated systems allows freedom of design, while providing speed in construction and GUARANTEED quality
By prefabricating the envelope of your home and renovation in factory-controlled conditions, we can ensure precision manufacturing, predictable delivery timeframes and quality control guaranteed to meet Passive House performance standards.
On-site construction time is reduced to a fraction of traditional site builds, which reduces cost and exposure to unpredictable weather.
For Owner Builders our prefabricated design and build system is the perfect way to have the structure of your house built to an ultra efficient or Passive House standard by us, leaving you to complete the rest of the build.

Design freedom with prefabrication
Prefabrication doesn’t usually bring to mind design freedom, but at eclipse, our prefabricated, panelised building system allows enormous design flexibility.
Are you an owner builder?
Then our prefabricated design and build system is the perfect way to have the envelope of your house built to an ultra efficient or Passive House standard by us, leaving you to complete the rest of the build. This leaves us to guarantee the complicated part of the build.
Our design and build system is highly customisable to allow you to create the home you want, on the site you have. If a timber framed building can be site-built, we can prefabricate it, deliver it to site and install it in a fraction of the time required by traditional site-built construction.
