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 more than 20 years.

Classic Group - Matt & Pete

Our Grassroots

Directors, Matt Lagerberg and Peter Cooney, have always believed that Kiwis deserve the chance to own their own home.

In the late 1990s, 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 the second-largest residential building company 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.


Under Matt and Peter’s stewardship of the wider Classic Group (Classic Builders’ parent company), Classic Builders draws on the expertise of its team to improve digital technology and systems that make the building process more efficient and transparent for everyone involved.

While we’re specialists in every sense of the word, we keep things simple and down to earth. The majority of our builds are a direct result of customer referrals - which is a testament to our great people, our supportive culture, and the innovative way we work.
