SEEC was founded on the principle of design and technical excellence delivered in a clear, amicable and accessible manner.  This key operating principle ensures we always work closely with our clients and engage collaboratively with design teams.

SEEC is a leader in green building design, a corporate member of the New Zealand Green Building Council (NZGBC) and a strong advocate of the Green Star building rating tool.

With in-house expertise in both building science and mechanical HVAC engineering we are well placed to provide energy efficient design and analysis for any built environment.  

We enjoy interesting projects and look to deliver innovative, creative and resourceful solutions whether designing active heating & cooling, passive design or natural ventilation systems.

If you would like to find out more about our team, the way we work or how we could add value to your next project please give us a call.
