Are you keen to get your New Home Build Underway really soon, but you’re not sure where to Start?

Most building companies will tell you that they have years of experience, and deliver quality work. Fair enough, but for Smartway Builders those statements are not only true but we go beyond that, we go the extra mile. We provide you with a fabulous guarantee, and a Lead Builder to focus on your new build, and ensure everything is managed to the highest standards, so we can deliver you nothing but quality workmanship.

Having high ethics, beliefs and standards is who we are, and this helps us meet the quality levels you ask for. That is also why we only engage qualified architects, engineers, surveyors, town planners and other sub-contractors to work on your project.

The first big step in your build process is to put your vision of your dream home onto paper. The architects we work with are people who we trust to listen to you, to work together with you on ideas, and to communicate with you.

We don’t work with architects who believe “their way is the only way”, because after all, it is your new home, not theirs. And, if you already have existing plans drawn up by your own architect no problem! Smartway Builders are experienced and can professionally maintain a great working relationship with your architect in achieving a successful new home build.

So… Who Are We?

Smartway Builders are a residential building company based in Tawa and Waikanae, covering Wellington, Kapiti Coast and Hutt Valley … formed through a passion and desire for raising the quality and standards in the building industry, and with an ongoing desire for the completion of quality building and renovation projects … and the creation of updated family homes that our clients will be proud to call their own.

Smartway Builders are top-quality builders, fueled each day by an experienced and qualified team who work with you from the very first step, during the giant leap of faith into the project, and all the way until you land back on the doorstep of your new dream home. We believe in old-fashioned values like respect and honesty, communication and trust … and simply want to do a great job, that we’ll all be proud of.

“Have recommended them to friends and neighbours”

We found Smartway excellent to deal with. Throughout the entire process from the initial discussion right through to the code compliance their communication was excellent, prompt, to the point, answering all our questions in a timely manner and working with us through the build.

We had to rework our project a number of times to meet our budget and Ann and Howard worked with us to get what we wanted within the budget we had. We kept a close eye on our budget with Ann and Howard both excellent in clarifying any questions we had and their invoicing is clear as to what it covers and how much of the project costs remain.

The quality of the work was excellent with Jade and his team completing the work to a very high standard and within expected timeframes.

The fact that we started our project as the building material supply shortage was just beginning but they had the required materials available for our project speaks to their planning and experience in navigating the difficulties in building in the current market.

I would highly recommend them as a building company to work with on your project and in fact we have recommended them to friends and neighbours who have asked us about our renovations.
