No surprises, just quality.

Ecokit Group is a manufacturer of high performance engineered construction system for the construction industry. Structures utilizing our ecokit system are completed in about 60% of the time compared to traditional building methods.

Our wall, roof and floor panels have excellent thermal properties, with R-value over 7 (minimum required is from 2.8 for walls to 4.1 to roofs).

Ecokit engineered cosntruction system is effortless. There’s no heavy lifting and no cranes required, as most components can be safely lifted by a couple of workers.

We eliminate the pain of typical construction with curated options, straightforward pricing and a rapid build.

Every good story has to start somewhere

Ecokit was born out of a frustration with the status quo. Started in 2015 as an idea for a simple, compact structure that would be comfortable, well insulated and build out of non toxic materials. It was not a commercial venue at that point either, only a one off design for our founder, Camilla.

The concept of small DIY eco house was born as an alternative solution to  dwellings that could be easily built by an inexperienced owner builder and on much lower budget that the standard australian home.

A few criteria were paramount during the planning & design phase: The simplicity of the build, the materials and the affordability. Another focus was on the functionality and how the house was to adapt different stages of the occupant’s life.

It always seems impossible… until it’s done

After releasing the concept of ecokit into the virtual network, a lot of feedback has been received. Working with the community encouraged us to continue with further development.

Lack of knowledge in Australia and more extensive uptake of prefab, modular buildings and advanced materials such as engineered timber in Europe inspired Camilla to start searching for an engineering company in her mother country of Czech Republic, to help her with a design for a kit home that was modern, energy efficient, healthy and sustainable.

Working together on the modular design of ecokit with building designer Jesse, the team reached out to Vesper Frames, an engineering firm with an appreciation for innovation, quality and the concept of self-assembly.

We started it but you will define it

First ecokit house went finally into production in early 2018. We are excited by, and proud of, what we have achieved and keen on providing affordable, accessible, organic home that connects the concept of comfort and coziness with the functionality of a modern, ecological, elegant home to people who need it.

We are looking forward to your feedback, advice and constructive criticism. Because we aim to change the way people think about their houses, with homes that enrich and simplify our lives.

Join us in designing a new future, with quality, energy efficient, comfortable and healthy homes that inspire.

The team behind ecokit

Ecokit is first and foremost the story of talented people coming together and working on a common vision. We aim not only to design the best product but also to create a great company. We have set to create a community that shares more than just work projects, because everyone’s fulfillment is essential to us and creativity isn’t always born behind a desk.
