Classic Builders is on a mission to create more homes for more Kiwis. We want to help as many people as possible into their very own home and to achieve this, we rely on partnering with quality operators like you.
Are you interested in joining us for the journey?
Classic Builders was founded 25 years ago in the Bay of Plenty by directors Matt Lagerberg and Peter Cooney. We’re now the third largest builder in NZ, building more than 700 homes every year for Kiwis all over the country. Sitting under the umbrella of Classic Group, which includes best in class commercial, development, and technology companies, we directly employee 130+ staff across nine regions, and contract work to more than 130 building companies just like yours.
Today our grassroot values remain as strong as ever. Everything we do is geared towards the simple purpose of helping Kiwis realise their dream to own their own home. We’re always moving forward, always with a client-first mindset. We work collaboratively at pace, together with our staff, suppliers, and network of partners, to make big things happen.
What’s in it for you?
You have lots to weigh up when deciding on a build partner to align with and we believe we have a lot to offer. Here are some of the reasons we believe you would enjoy working with us:
Our automated payment system makes invoicing easy, ensuring you’re paid on time, every time. We know cashflow is crucial and we can pay on 7-day cycles.
Many of our builders have been on our books for over 10 years. We seek long-term partnerships and we’re well-known for the great care we show our people.
Our sites are well run, organised, and backed by a purpose-built project management system that ensures what you need is on site and on schedule. Your relationship is direct with the Classic Construction Managers running our jobs. They’re one call away should you need them.
Our strength is your strength
We’re an established company with long-term pipelines of work that keep you and your team busy. It’s about visibility and assurance of work.
Protocols in Place
We have learnt and evolved from Covid. Today, we have significant protocols in place that put us in a strong position to navigate future lockdowns with minimal disruptions to our operations.
The culture of excellence runs deep at Classic and it guides everything, from how we treat each other to the quality of the homes we build. We’re ‘One Team’ and we hold ourselves accountable for delivering the best.
“We’ve enjoyed the working relationship with Classic builders for over 17 years now. The reason why the relationship has and will continue to remain strong is because of their ongoing commitment to developing the right systems to cope with growth. This helps our business to progress alongside them and better handle the demand that comes with the roofing trade. Their Construction Managers have an excellent understanding of the trade and are easy and enjoyable to work with”.
Simon, Precise Roofing
