We hear you’re entered in this year’s Registered Master Builders House of the Year Awards?
Yes, this year we have two great homes entered. The House of the Year Awards is a prestigious competition which recognises and celebrates building excellence. This year, the awards event is being held on 26 November, so watch this space!
What’s been happening in your business over the past year?
It’s been another busy one for the Bay of Plenty team with over 20 houses currently in the build process and due for completion over the next 6-12 months.
We’ve also expanded our team to 10 full-time staff. We’ve got a fantastic team of experts that bring together some incredibly valuable experience for our clients. Having the extra team members on board means we’re in a good position to manage the excellent numbers of builds we’re seeing come through.
We understand you’ve got a new office in the pipeline?
That’s right, we’re currently building a brand-new office space in the Tauriko Business Estate. We’re undertaking a full fit-out with new offices and a large warehouse which will provide us with room for growth as well as storage.
We’re expecting to move in this September which is very exciting for our growing team.
What’s your advice for anyone currently considering a new build in Tauranga or the wider Bay of Plenty?
Because new sites are becoming increasingly difficult to find, a popular alternative for homeowners planning a build in Tauranga is utilising our Remove and Rebuild service. This gives owners the opportunity to buy an existing property, then demolish the home and build brand new. Now is a great time to do exactly that – buying a home now while the prices have settled. Then over the next few months, they can start putting together ideas and planning. By the time they’re ready to take their plans to council, the supply chain issues will have settled and they’ll be ready to go.
