Our Approach

We know how important your new home is and for how long you’ve been dreaming about it. For this reason innovative design and quality workmanship are the main focus of our Director and Registered Master Builder, David Owens. Motivated by the process of turning your creative designs into remarkable homes, our team shares in the passion you have for creating your dream home.

Your trusted building partner throughout the process.

As one of the top building companies in Wanaka NZ, Owens Building can assist from the earliest stages of your architectural house build. Drawing on our comprehensive knowledge of construction materials and innovative systems, a meeting to discuss your ideas can help you prioritise your selections to keep within your budget, without compromising design.

Working with an architect who can interpret your vision is an important step. If you need guidance on selecting an architect for your Wanaka home build, or if you are already working with one, David can consult at any stage. A successful collaboration between master builder and architect is a vital aspect of your building project and we have a strong track record in that area.

Client support throughout the building process is also a priority for us. Some clients wish to be involved throughout, while others need to be confident the project will progress without consuming too much of their time. Whatever level of involvement is right for you, Owens Building aims to deliver a home and build experience that exceeds expectations.

We know how important mutual trust and respect are to the success of collaborative projects. That’s why all our relationships are proudly built upon our guiding values.
