New Homes

Beginning a new home, literally from the ground up, can be a daunting prospect - but it doesn't need to be.

We offer two key options: "design and build", as well as "new build".

Our design and build option is, by far, our most popular, accounting for about 90% of the homes we construct. As well as achieving awards for the homes we have both designed and built, the greatest endorsement we receive is our significant repeat business.

Design and build is a great option for those who want the convenience and consistency of having one firm take care of everything.

During the design process, we'll work with you closely to understand every dimension of your vision, from its look and layout, to its functionality and ambience. Our advanced design computer software means you have the reassurance of watching your design unfold in high-end, 3-D graphics, with the ability to change and tweak it as we go through the process.

Under our new build option, you can choose to have an architect or draughtsperson design your home, and we take responsibility for all building aspects. We, however, remain in close contact with both you and your designer of choice for the entirety of the project to make sure everyone is "on the same page".

Whichever option a client opts for, in the vast majority of cases we assume the project management role, co-ordinating - and taking responsibility - for day-to-day management, as well as overall outcomes.

We also take care of the many logistical, administrative and labour responsibilities, including:

  • Building consents, including arranging inspections
  • Sourcing materials
  • Supplier liaison
  • Co-ordinating and managing subcontractors
  • Overall project management
  • Regular and committed client communication
