Laying Down Strong Foundations

Our team loves nothing more than designing a home that is ‘uniquely’ you, and suited to the needs of your family, lifestyle, section and budget.

With Design & Build, you’re in the drivers seat!  We can customise any of our plans to suit you, or you have the option to start from scratch.  Our team will work with you to design your home, to your unique specifications.  If you have plans already drawn up, we can work with those too.­­­­

What To Think About When Building A New Home

Building a new home does include quite a few important steps, but that’s why we leave you in the very capable hands of one of our expert Classic Builders Building Consultants. They will be there to guide you throughout the process, from start to finish. When you meet with them, they’ll ask you a few questions, to get an understanding of what it is you want in your home. It pays to think about particular towns or suburbs you want to live in, how many bedrooms you’ll need, and any other aspects that you would want to include.

Once you’ve got the vision, we’ll work with you to get all your ideas down, and into your final building plans. After the planning is done, our team of trades will take care of the rest! Overseen by a dedicated Construction Manager, they’ll make sure that your build is on track to be completed on time, within budget, and to the highest of standards, before our Quality Assessor does their final check to ensure every element meets your expectations. We are so proud of the work we’ve done for families across New Zealand, and we can’t wait to get you into a brand new home as well!


A Showhome is a great place to get inspiration and helps you to get an idea of what kind of home you'd like while checking out our quality first hand.

Process Makes Perfect

Approaching a new build project of any scale is a daunting experience. Understanding where to start, who to involve and what steps to take, it can feel complicated and overwhelming.  

You may have your own plans drawn up or just have some ideas of what you like or need.

Regardless of what stage you are currently at, our team will guide you through our four-step process so you feel confident that we are in fact designing and building your dream.

Design & Build

When it comes to choosing a company to Design & Build your dream home - there's no shortage of options. But with it being one of the biggest decisions you'll probably make in a lifetime, it's important to have confidence that who you will eventually settle on will be the best for the job.

Here at Classic Builders, we take that responsibility very seriously, perhaps more than most.
