Great people

You’ll be designated your very own Client Liaison Manager to ensure your build experience is as enjoyable as possible. She’ll put you in touch with the right people to help you choose your fixtures and fittings, carpets and colours. 

The Managing Director, Daniel Davies with the assistance of a Project Manager, will personally oversee your build, ensuring the highest standards of construction are met. 

You’ll have regular site visits and access to our cloud-based project management tool that allows you 24/7 real-time visibility of the home building process. You’ll be able to track the exact progress of your new home as it is being built.

You’re definitely going to love your decision to design and build your beautiful new home with us.

Why Choose Davies Homes

We aspire to create the best build experience possible. We invest in our systems and processes to ensure your new home is built on time, to budget and the highest standards. Here’s what happens at each stage of the building process when you choose us:

Come and visit us at one of our showrooms in Cambridge or Te Awamutu. Meet our friendly team who will answer any questions you have, and show you examples of our work.

The best way for us to capture the vision you have for your new home is to meet you on site. Daniel Davies will assess the site, and provide you with ideas on how to maximise it’s potential; taking into account the sun and wind directions, views, positioning, boundary lines, street frontage, flow and more.

Following one or more design concept meetings with Daniel, a design concept will be produced, along with a cost estimate for the entire build. Once you have signed off on this, full 3D images will be prepared. Your selection of fixtures and fittings throughout the home are documented.

We present you with a fixed-price contract for approval. Once you’re happy with this, the contract, working drawings, specification details and guarantee documentation are signed. We apply for consent(s) to Council.

While your plans are at council, our team will set up a series of meetings with you to help you choose the colours and finishes of your new home. Meet with the electrician, kitchen designers, carpet people and more. We also have a Client Liaison Manager that will arrange all this for you. These choices complete your vision for your home, so have fun!

Once we receive consented plans from the local council, we confirm with you a build start date and from there an indicative timeline. Our team will show you how to use BuilderTrend – an online tool to show you what is happening with your build every step of the way. You will have regular site visits with Daniel, who personally oversees each build. Progress payments will be required as per the contract.

We make regular quality inspections throughout the build process. You are also invited to walk through your home at regular intervals, so you can see for yourself how well it’s been constructed. Once your new home is completed we make a full final quality inspection.

Once your home is completed we will have your home professionally cleaned and arrange for the final Council inspection. Jake or Catherine will meet you at your home so that you can inspect it with them, ensuring everything is as it should be. Then we hand the keys over, with your welcome pack that details everything you need to know about your new home.

At last, the moment has arrived. It’s time for you to move in and enjoy your new beautiful new home. But that isn’t the last you have heard from us – we check in with you again a week or so later to make sure everything is as it should be, and then again a few months down the track.

We pride ourselves on a quality finish and want to make sure you are happy with everything.
