Registered Master Builders

Registered Master Builders was established in New Zealand over 100 years ago. It represents our industry’s best practitioners, including Design Builders. It’s a trusted sign that your home is being designed and built by expert, experienced professionals, who are second to none in their trade.

To be a Registered Master Builder, companies like ours must meet stringent criteria, including professional qualifications, proven expert on-site management and more. All Registered Master Builders must have written references from their bank, accountant and building material suppliers to show financial strength.

As Registered Master Builders, Design Builders are able to offer you real peace of mind – with a 10-Year Master Build Guarantee on all residential work.
