Phil Benton Builders

Inspired design, razor-sharp precision

It’s how we won New Zealand’s Supreme Award, and we’ll bring exactly the same approach to building your new home.

We specialise in building new architecturally designed houses, as well as renovations and additions to existing high-quality homes.

We’ll work closely with your architect to make sure you achieve a design you’ll be proud of, and a home that makes everyday living convenient and pleasurable.

We’ll always keep our attention fixed on the details, both at the design stage, and during every phase of building. In practice, that means we’ll insist that every feature of your house – from the largest concrete structure, to the installation of the kitchen joinery, to the positioning of your recessed speakers – is perfect before we hand over the keys.

Our Profile page will fill you in on how and why our team is so focused on perfection. Or visit our Process page to find out more about what our approach will mean for you when you build with Phil Benton Builders.

Phil Benton Builders are your highly effective and complementary team

They operate as a highly effective and complementary team, with Phil taking the lead on-site and Dave handling all the essential work that goes on behind the scenes.

Phil is a ‘builders’ builder’, and most days you’ll find him either on-site or in conversation with his builders, the architect, or subcontractors. He stays close to each project to make sure every detail is up to the highest standards and that the build is staying on track.

Dave manages the preparation for the build, as well as making sure every ‘i’ is dotted and ‘t’ is crossed at the end. That includes quantity surveying and pricing; coordinating with engineers, architects, and subcontractors; financial oversight; health and safety; and managing consenting and permitting processes.

But what’s most important for you to know is that unlike some builders who consider building ‘just another job’, Phil and Dave put everything they’ve got into every project. They are builders of fine homes, not ‘building assemblers’ for hire, and they take huge pride in every new home they build for their clients.

That’s the reason they win awards, and it’s also the reason they’re recommended by several high profile architects.

But their focus on craftsmanship doesn’t mean they’re above getting their hands dirty. They’ll do whatever it takes to keep things on track for you, right down to cleaning the spouting or clearing the drive if that’s what it takes.
