Our Story

After 25 years in the building industry Jim Nicol saw the need for a quicker, more sustainable way to build, for our New Zealand climate and budget.


Modbox Homes now enables ordinary kiwis, to get their very own, affordable and sustainable dream home.


This system means stronger, more durable, energy efficient buildings with smarter space saving designs.

At Modbox Homes, we take great pride in our excellent workmanship, competitive fees, and the ability to deliver outstanding results. Since our founding, we’ve worked hard toward building and maintaining a stellar reputation as a leading Queenstown contractor.


The key to Modbox is freeing you from unnecessary complication and focusing on designs and elements that we know work - plus we constantly refine and improve our system ensuring you receive the best value possible.

More affordable, more efficient, more innovative. We love working with Kiwis who share our ideas that there can always be a better way to do things, and we go to great lengths to build them a home they can be proud of.

Modbox designs are based on a modular

construction system - which makes designing your home a more flexible and affordable process.


Start with one and later add another - as your budget allows.


The solid panel walls are natural, strong,

and efficient to build.

We have developed a comprehensive Modular Building Program that streamlines the quoting and build process.
