Here’s some exciting news if you live in North Auckland or Northland. Design Builders is expanding across the entire North Island with two new offices in your part of the world. With these new offices, we’re making architecturally-designed homes accessible to even more New Zealanders with our far-reaching coverage across the North Island.

The Design Builders North Auckland office is headed by the talented sister and brother team of Sarah Fawcett and Dan Fawcett. Together, Sarah and Dan have a number years of business and building industry experience.

Meanwhile, the Design Builders Northland office is led by managing director Brendan Flude, whose passion for stunning modern homes will benefit clients in the beautiful North. Brendan designed and built his own family home, and it’s won plenty of praise, including an online magazine write-up.

Design Builders (NZ) CEO, Andrew Price, says “We’re excited to have people of Sarah, Dan, and Brendan’s calibre within the Design Builders family. Most importantly, we’re now able to give more New Zealanders the benefits of the Design Builders approach.”

Design Builders treats clients as individuals. We start with a blank sheet of paper and work with each client to create a unique home perfectly in tune with that client’s way of life. We call this approach ‘a home built around you’. Watch this space.

Design Builders was established in 1992, when we designed and built a new home for our first client. Since then it has grown into a network of offices across the North Island. Design Builders has won over 100 prestigious New Zealand Master Builder Home of the Year Awards, including highly coveted ‘Best of Category’ awards and rare Gold Awards.

Andrew adds, “Having this kind of reach in the North Island is fantastic, but we’re not stopping there. We’re already planning on giving South Islanders the excitement of ‘a home built around you’.”
