About Eco

The company Director, Lesley England, originally studied and completed an Honours Degree in Industrial Design at Brunel University, back in the UK. She then went onto work as a Product Designer for over a decade. After immigrating to New Zealand back in 2007, she took the opportunity to start on a new career path and returned to study. Whilst studying a Diploma in Architectural Technology she gained experience in an Architectural Design office, drawing up house plans for building consent applications. After completing her Diploma (with Merit), her ambition to design award winning homes led her to set up her own Architectural practice. She has since become a Homestar Practitioner and Assessor and has decided to specialise in designing and building environmentally friendly homes, as she is passionate about building warmer and healthier homes with a reduced environmental impact.
