About Us Banner
We love building fantastic family homes
Kiwi owned and operated, we’ve been building and renovating high-end, much loved homes in Mt Maunganui, Tauranga and the greater Western Bay for more than three decades.
Our aim has always been to build the finest homes with quality craftsmanship, a dedication to perfection and a listening ear to what our clients need. We’re passionate about creating a future-proof home that suits your family, your Bay of Plenty lifestyle and endures far into the future.
You’re in safe hands
We’re committed to building New Zealand’s finest homes and have been doing so in the Bay of Plenty for more than 30 years. Properties that meet our clients’ changing lifestyles, fulfil their innovative design ideas and achieve sustainable building practices. From concept to successful result, we’re determined to give our clients a positive project experience. Dave loves the details and tackles every project with a hands on approach. He checks, double checks and puts his perfectionist skills into action from concept to completion. Find out how we work.
Carolynne Shaw manages the office and along with Dave, builds relationships with our clients and keeps the lines of communication open, even after the project is successfully completed.
As members of the Registered Master Builders Association of New Zealand, the Shaw Builders team and all our trusted contractors meet the standards, qualifications and quality controls that give our clients peace of mind.
With more than 60 awards since 2007, there’s no questioning the consistency of our work. But we don’t build homes to win awards, we build them to meet the needs of our clients’ evolving lifestyles, give them a positive building experience and a satisfying result.

How we work
Good project management and clear, consistent communication is key to an enjoyable building experience. With us, you get an open book. We work with you, your architect, our quantity surveyor, our contractors and subcontractors to achieve a Bay of Plenty home we can all be proud of.
- Get the ball rolling. If you need some help with scope, design concepts and ideas to bring to your architect’s plans, our extensive building knowledge makes the design process easier. We know what works, how to practically achieve your vision and when to consider alternatives.
- Realistic pricing – We work with the quantity surveyor to give an estimated project scope and then sit down with you to talk it through and align building practicalities with concept drawings, ideas and inspiration.
- Once the scope, budget and project overview is agreed, we coordinate, project manage and communicate with contractors to start work.
- The journey begins. We work alongside you, your family and neighbours to make sure the building experience meets your expectations, fits your budget and achieves the best result.
