Nevhouse takes the waste that we throw away and turns it into affordable shelter.  

Our low cost homes, school classrooms, medical clinics and other structures are made from recycled materials. These places of  sanctuary can built in just 5 days and are functional either on or off the power grid.

 
 
 
 
 

Each structure comes with solutions for light, clean water and sanitation. 

We can build communities faster than the conventional 'bricks and mortar' approach using our holistic and sustainable community development model.

Nevhouse sustainable development in Vanuatu post Cyclone Pam

Channel 9’s Emma O’Rourke reports on an initiative by Nevhouse to deliver hope and homes to people on remote Tanna Island, in Vanuatu.  In an interview, the Australian Foreign Affairs Minister Julie Bishop stated “the people of Vanuatu have been through a very devastating experience”. Founder Nev Hyman explains how Nevhouse is taking plastic out of the environment and using it to create panels for the homes.


RECENT AWARDS ...

WHAT WE DO ...


HOW WE DO IT ...

A CONSORTIUM OF EXPERTS AND ENTERPRISES.  Nevhouse has assembled a consortium comprising enterprises and experts in sustainable development, indigenous design, international finance, government / public policy, clean water and sanitation, clean energy, construction / logistics and gender equality. Through our consortium we are able to take on much larger projects such as the re-building of schools that have been devastated by a natural disaster.  Links to some of our consortium members websites are below:

A WORLD CLASS SUPPLY CHAIN.  Think of all the moving parts that need to come together seamlessly to deliver just one structure: procuring raw materials, sourcing suppliers, appointing manufacturing partners, engaging overland / international and inter island shipping partners, as well as coordinating construction partners, government relations and community engagement. All of this is in place and we are delighted to announce that our supply chain enables us to reach any destination in the world. 

CAPACITY TO MEET DEMAND, ANYWHERE.  Nevhouse spent one year selecting manufacturing partners that have the credentials,  skills and capacity to supply structures at levels that meet current interest. Manufacturing will be in China and Australia until demand reaches a level to make a local factory viable. The outsourced capacity is sufficient to meet current demand, and is immediately scalable if and when required.


WHERE WE PLAY...

Papua New Guinea. The Nevhouse team has spent considerable time in Papua New Guinea securing acceptance from government ministers, departments, land owner groups and clan leaders. Our standard preliminary research and assessment stages were commenced which lead to tailor made homes being engineered and designed and then built and tested in Australia. All of the moving parts required to mobilize the Nevhouse solution in Papua New Guinea has been setup and the first stages of market mobilization are underway. The video below that shows the amazing foundation laid by Nevhouse using our grass roots approach on the Island of Lihir where our solution has been accepted by the local community and our team have been welcomed as family.

 
 

Vanuatu. Nevhouse visited Vanuatu the same month Cyclone Pam swept through devastating the entire nation and met with the Prime Minister, Finance Minister, Housing Minister, Education Minister, Chief Architect and other dignitaries. Social research was undertaken immediately to assess the solution required to re-build homes, schools and medical clinics throughout the nation. Following presentations to the Prime Minister and various Cabinet Ministers Nevhouse received a Mandate to supply homes, primary schools, secondary schools and medical clinics as part of a national re-build program. At present Nevhouse is re-building a community on Tanna Island which was completely wiped out by Cyclone Pam starting with the building of a number of category 5 cyclone rated community houses. The video below shows another project on Mataso Island which Nevhouse is preparing to re-build in 2016.
