Architecturally designed home in Christchurch

Building a new home can be one of the most exciting achievements in life and equally it can be one of the most stressful!  The crew at Irving Builders have the skills and experience to take away the stressful element.

Irving Builders not only project manage the on-site construction of jobs but also the paper war and administrative aspects that are involved. This begins with concept drawings, plans and consent, flowing through to construction, coordinating subcontractors, inspections, quality control and client variations and satisfaction.

With new homes comes an endless possibility of new ideas, and there is no better time to explore these options.

Don’t just take our word for it


The work undertaken was extremely complex as the house required underpinning and connecting into the retaining wall that was built.  The first hurdle was creating access to the site and Irving Builders had to build a track in before the work could be started. Very pleased with the whole project and how the project was run. Great that the project stayed ahead of schedule and in fact, finished a week early
Alex Eason Christchurch
Thanks for a great job and being willing to work around all our needs. To have a company that can show adaptivity and compassion while on the worksite is truly appreciated… Definitely be recommending !!
