Our success

Our brand is built on these three pillars to provide quality and seamless delivery:


Design your dream home or commercial building today.

Strine Environments offers a traditional architectural service as well as partial service depending on the complexity of client requirements, the structure, site, budget and overall size of the project. We do not charge on a percentage basis establishing a written fee proposal based on the tasks and time involved. We offer tender services as well as building services.

Design & Build

A seamless package with Architecture available.

We design and build according to our principles of excellence in design, sustainability and buildability. We build our own unique Thermal Panels and use these to construct our buildings. Thermal Panel buildings offer unbeatable thermal mass, almost zero maintenance and using these help avoid the need for cooling and almost any heating.

Our own Precast

Bush fire resistant, sustainable and cost-effective concrete precast.

Our unique modular designs and prefabricated sustainable modular homes are our own designed and made by us. Architect designed and flexible enough to adjust to site and function. They take approximately 13 weeks to build and one week to install onsite, and can be deconstructed if needed.

A unique experience tailored to you

About usWhat we do

Science of the sun

We’ve crafted principles of passive solar design with our very own developed insulated precast concrete panels, thermal mass walls and slab edge insulation.

Insulated homes

We are one of Australia’s foremost environmental design and construction practitioners, offering clients a seamless and environmentally built home that doesn’t cost the earth.

Fast Turnaround & Affordable

Using our insulated concrete tilt walls we can have your house erected in a matter of weeks. We build a range of sized dwellings from 2 bedroom Ecokit homes from as low as $250,000.

Green Design

We work with the environment rather than against it, utilising the microclimate that comes with every site.

What our clients say

Strine environments reflect the vernacular architecture of the Australian bush, and is the reason why we use ‘strine’ in our company name. The word means ‘Australian’.

Our homes are ecologically built with thermal insulated concrete walls, solar chimneys, solar glazing, solar panels and all in your choice of customisations and fittings.
