David Reid Homes has been building custom architectural homes in the Wellington region for discerning clients, since 2003. The Wellington home building company was taken over in 2009 by the Kapiti franchise owners and has gone from strength to strength under the direction of Tim Sunderland, Managing Director.
Understanding the constraints of Wellington’s terrain is crucial to the successful completion of new home build projects in Wellington. You are not restricted to choosing one of our pre-designed home plans; a large percentage of our clients choose our Design & Build option, using our architectural and design partners. This allows your new home build to be reflective of the way you choose to live, and to fit neatly onto the land you own. David Reid Homes have a proven record of successfully addressing potential issues, still managing to maintain the essence of custom home design and the integrity of client briefs. A realistic expectation of costs is supplied early in the home design process, so the feasibility of site and house combined is known.
There is significant value in engaging David Reid Homes at the beginning of the home build process. All requirements pre-contract can then be managed, including resource consent if required. All contracts are based on a fixed price and are delivered with the assurance of a Master Builders Guarantee.
David Reid Homes’ experienced new home build teams understand the strict high standards of workmanship our clients demand. We consistently win awards in the House of the Year competitions, a reflection of our expectations. Effective, complete management from conception through to completion is proudly upheld.
For the discerning client who wants to build a new home but prefers it to “just happen”, building a home with David Reid Homes is an easy solution. It is not too early to talk to us a year out from when you’d like to start building. It gives time to refine your ideas into exactly what you want and time for the consenting process. So if you’ve an interesting project you’re considering, talk to the Wellington building company with the experience to make it happen.
“We enjoyed building with David Reid Homes as it was a fixed price contract and we weren’t in for any surprises. The quality of the house and our experience went so well the first time that five years later we have just completed our second home with the team.
We are very happy with our second home, which was a slightly more complicated build due to it being on a hilly site needing retaining walls."- Dr Giresh & Sathna Kanji, Strathmore
“Day by day we watched as DRH Wellington built our new home. The planning and effort that the team put in meant that it was plain sailing for us. And in the end, a home perfectly designed and built for the way we live. We love coming home.”- Chris Lee & Karen Mitchell, Karori
“Building with David Reid Homes we felt reassured that we had a guarantee, and the professional project management team were always responsive to any issues that arose throughout the build. We appreciated the advice given around dealing with council, neighbours and other contractors.The project was delivered on time, which was a big issue for us as a family, and within a fixed and transparent budget."- Mark & Helen Waddington, Seatoun
