Keen to get your dream home underway, but don't know where to start?


Feeling overwhelmed by all the decisions that need to be made FOR A NEW BUILD?

How many windows and where should they go? What council consents will I need? How long is it going to take? How much will my new home build cost?

At Nelson building company You Build we understand that whilst it is a very exciting adventure to build a new home from scratch, there is also a lot of pressure to ‘get it right’. This can be quite a stressful journey (especially if you’re a first timer).


Experts in High-End New Builds

Based on our past experience with high-end new builds and architectural designed homes, over the years the construction team has developed a strong skill in carrying out large scale builds – from simple designs to highly complex developments. The experience we’ve acquired has also lead to detailed project planning, accurate costing, and ability provide cost-effective solutions.

Building site – You Build

Your dream home

We want hear your ideas so we can provide our expertise and offer advice on how these can best be achieved.
Our designer will create concept plans based on your ideas, combined with our input. It's common for these to be revised 2-3 times until you are happy with the layout of your home.

The next step is to provide you with a comprehensive project estimate. Once you are happy to go ahead, we then sign a Certified Builders contract, as well as a “Project Summary”, which outlines the scope of your project.

Once the contract is signed, we will get your working drawings processed. This involves initiating communication with the council and liaising with surveyors, engineers etc. In order to get your project moving as efficiently as possible. Then we will meet with you to run through a planned project timeline for your build.

During the construction phase we will look after the project budget, organizing contractors, materials and council inspections etc. We pride ourselves on excellent communication and transparency with our clients and will always be available as your point of contact for any questions or queries that you may have.

Once construction is complete there are a few final boxes to tick. Your project manager will communicate with you throughout the process about what happens after passing your final inspection, including applying for a Code Compliance Certificate.
