The World's Most Sustainable Building System

 Truss House

At Truss House, we're not just a business. We're socially driven and deeply committed to addressing the pressing issues impacting our housing sector.

We envision a model of climate-resilient, sustainable, and community-led housing that meets future standards today. As a social enterprise, our primary purpose is to create sustainable, energy-efficient building systems that not only serve our customers but also contribute to a healthier planet.

The Truss House model is a revolutionary approach to housing in NZ. It focuses on empowering communities to solve local housing challenges, tailored to their unique needs. This model is the next evolution after the development of the Truss House technology, aiming to make its benefits available to everyone.

Our model is collaborative by design, centred on transferring knowledge and enabling communities to adopt and evolve the model to become self-sustaining without reliance on the Truss team.
