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.

Our Grassroots

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.


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.
