We Get you
You’ve thought about building your dream home for a long time. You’ve got a vision for what it’ll be like and for the life you’ll create there for you and your family. You want a builder who works within your budget and timeline. A builder with a solid reputation. A builder who listens cares and guides you through each step of the process.
We think that builder could be us. Why? Because we’ve been bringing Kiwi dreams - just like yours - to life for 25 years.
Matt Lagerberg and Peter Cooney began their journey as Classic Builders in 1996 and have always believed that Kiwis deserve the opportunity to own their own home.
They saw a growing need in the market for quality, value-for-money homes built by honest, agile, daring and creative people. Classic Builders has gone from strength to strength ever since.
Founded in the Bay of Plenty, Classic Builders is now one of the largest residential building companies in the country. From Queenstown and Canterbury up to Wellington, Waikato, Auckland and Northland, we continue to expand our reach while initiating change toward a better future for housing in New Zealand.
ONE GROUP, ONE TEAM
Continuously growing, innovating, and diversifying is what defines Classic Group.
Experience and learnings operating in a cyclic industry - where supply and demand is governed by unpredictable economic, demographic, and social factors - has fostered a strategic, innovative, and resourceful way of thinking across the Group.
Classic Group is a diverse collection of businesses and partnerships that strive to build a better life for people, every day - clients and residents, investors and partners, suppliers and subcontractors, investors, and the Classic team.
TEAMING UP WITH CLASSIC BUILDERS
Finding a builder who can interpret the way you want to live inside and outside the walls you intend to build is important. Having confidence in their capability to deliver that vision into a real-life home is absolutely vital. This is what you need to know about the Classic Builders client experience.
Classic Builders is one of the largest residential builders in NZ. We've built more than 6000 homes for Kiwi’s, and the plan is to build thousands more.
Made in NZ
We’re proudly owned and operated by Kiwis. Being privately owned means your journey with Classic in the North Island, will be the same as someone else’s in the South!
Every home we build undergoes at least 10 quality checks throughout the process. And after your home is complete, our After Care service is on call for you for ten years.
This is something we work hard at. We get involved in local initiatives and organisations that support family, health, and gathering people (and communities) together.
We’ve been bringing Kiwi dreams to life for more than 25 years.
