Ziegel Construction

Essentially Ziegel is a honeycomb clay building block. It is faster and simpler to build with, will out perform other masonry systems and yet offers similar built costs. This method of building is proven over hundreds of years and many thousands of buildings. Ziegel NZ offers New Zealand a whole new building system with  fired clay blocks, double glazed PVC windows, polyathylene roofing insulation panels, solar systems, granite inner sills, aluminum outer sills, roller blinds, rafter roofing construction and European inner doors. No treated timber is used in our homes.
Ziegel is a very simple, quick and robust construction method

The reason behind this package is to offer people healthy ,energy saving, long lasting, quality homes, which they can enjoy for generations to the same costs than normal timber frame and trusses constructions.

Our building materials meet the very latest requirements and highest standards of modern building technology. They have been million times approved and successfully used in Europe over decades.

We are able to run our building consents on a AS O2 solution( Alternative solution) account at all District Councils in NZ and the construction also meets the British 5628 Standard which is an acceptable solution here in NZ. Ziegel Blocks are:
