Experienced Master Builders

It is best to build with well established, experienced people who know how to do things properly. HCH have been members of the Registered Master Builders for many years.

Office Based in Rangiora

Support a local bespoke company. Come and have a coffee and chat about projects with no obligation.

Cost Relevant with Transparent Contracts

It is imperative post Pandemic to use tradespeople who are relevant with costs and who have good relationships with suppliers. Being involved in both design and construction we provide balanced & transparent pricing with fully complying contracts and documents.

Award Winning Design & Style

Over the years HCH have won Canterbury House of the Year 3 times in our category and have also received many gold awards.

Simon Banks is a Licensed Building Practitioner Designer with architectural and building endorsements. Having extensively climbed, hunted and fished in the South Island, he has been suitably inspired to design properties where the interaction is with the outdoors. Simon has a flair for styling and is capable of procuring designs for both rural or city life.

Explore Post and Beam Construction

There are few companies in the South Island who can design, engineer and build a genuine post and beam project using traditional 500 year old methods.

This is our niche skill. You will very much appreciate a home like this if you like rustic detailing and large timber beams. Step beyond basic flat ceilings and try something more exciting!

Excavation Easy

We have 5.5 and 2.5tonne excavators.

This saves you stress trying to engage separate contractors to dig out your driveway, excavate your site, dig trenches, lift heavy things, and landscape the property at the very end.

Scaffold easy

An advantage is that we have our own scaffolding. Although we charge scaffold fees, when the agreed time is up, the scaffold becomes free of charge.

So, no need to worry about hire costs going over time.

Passive & Off Grid

We have built passive and off grid homes recently and can offer expertise in these areas.

Got your own plans?

That’s fine, at least half of our clients have their own plans, and we regularly build for other architects and designers.
