Well, you have taken the first step by visiting our website. The next step is to either send us an email or give us a call. From there we can arrange a meeting to discuss your project.

Having a Registered Master builder there in the early days can be a great help.Straightforward advice and practical knowledge can save you time, hassle and money in the early stages of design and project planning. 

It all depends on the size of your new home. We look forward to discussing all the details when we meet. Let’s start the conversation.

We do! Alongside our own bunch of fantastic staff, we employ a trusted team of subcontractors that work with us on a regular basis. Everyone working with Shaw Builders is aware of our emphasis on high quality, our strict focus on attention to detail, and adheres to all our standards. Dave makes sure of that!

Please contact us immediately. We’re happy to answer all your questions and work through any challenges. We’re here to help from day one, throughout the project and even after your home is built. We’ll make sure you receive follow up visits, so we can check in on how you’re enjoying your new home and make sure everything is in order. Talk to us now.

We believe in transparent, ‘open book’ communication with all our clients throughout their building project. We’ll give you a fair and reasonable cost estimate at the beginning of the project and we’ll discuss and confirm any variation during the build. Find out more about how we work.

At our first meeting we’ll make sure you’re completely clear how our payment system works and run through any financial and insurance details, answering all your questions. Carolynne will keep you up to date with any changes during the build, with clear, regular and transparent communication at all times.

We’ve been building Mt Maunganui lifestyle homes for more than 30 years and we’d love to share what we’ve learned along the way. We recommend you begin collecting photos, magazine cuttings and ideas, using an old school scrapbook, mood board or Pinterest boards. If you see a home design you like, take a shot and keep it on your wishlist. Plus, remember that the finer design details (such as kitchen design) may have an impact on your build. For instance, if you want a scullery in your kitchen, you’ll need to start visualising that now, so your architect and builder can include it in the concept drawings and building plan. Need to bounce some ideas around? Give us a call. We can also direct you to a number of designers we recommend.

Why are we different? Our clients are our number one priority and we build every home as if it was our own. Shaw Builders Ltd strives for excellence throughout your building project or renovation and we prefer an 'open book', upfront relationship where there are no hidden costs or surprises at the end of the job. Find out how we work. Or, read what our happy clients say about us. 

We ensure high standards of work safety at all times, for the safety of our employees and our clients. We’ll walk you through safety recommendations and regulations before construction begins.

Shaw Builders Ltd is registered with Master Builders and each home we build we can offer the 10 Year Master Build Guarantee.
