Home builders of exceptional houses since 2004
Smith Construction was started in 2004 as high-end architectural home builders in Auckland.
Leading the way in quality workmanship is owner Nick Smith, who has reached the required standards in construction and business management to meet the criteria for becoming a Certified Builder. This means all projects are fully covered under NZCB’s Halo 10 Year Residential Guarantee Insurance.
As a Licensed Building Professional with over 8 years of experience at the time, Nick wanted to deliver top quality homes to his clients.
“I wanted to be involved in transforming exceptional architectural home design into stunning homes, using innovative building techniques and sustainable modern materials and building systems.”
For Nick this meant working on projects from start to finish, from offering advice on choosing land packages and working closely with the architects on attaining the best home design to project management and delivering a quality build with a high standard of finish, right down to the landscaping.

We were recommended to Nick Smith the owner of Smith Construction Ltd, at the same time as we bought our land on Coal Hill Rd Mangawhai. At no time did it occur to us to look anywhere else for a builder.
We are experienced at home renovations and have built our own house in London so we are reasonably confident in the processes however we had not done anything of this scale in NZ.
Nick was on board immediately and together with the Architect Carin Wilson, we all worked to build our beautiful house on top of the hill. The planning stage was around 6 months and Smith Construction were part of all our discussions and worked with Carin to produce the final plan and documentation for Building Regs.
Nick and his team are professional, courteous and extremely well informed on all aspects of the trade including the current Building code requirements.
We prefer a modern finish, the details needed to achieve this were in some instances new to the team, they embraced the ideas, we worked through the possibilities and the results were flawless.

We contracted Smith Construction to build our new house at Mangawhai Heads
Nick Smith as Managing Director of Smith Construction stood out from the other contractors that we had been considering. His professionalism and understanding of our needs in terms of both cost and delivery was very evident in the presentation of his tender
From the outset Nick was a pleasure to deal with. His can do attitude, good communication skills and building knowledge contributed significantly to the successful outcome of our house build.
Nick is never short of good advice to enhance the build. Whether it is a building detail, a different methodology or something that should be reconsidered he will always bring this to your attention. This contributed significantly to the added value of our house
Nick is a stickler for detail and quality and he demands this from his employees and subcontractors. This has gained Nick a well-earned reputation in Mangawhai.
We were living in Auckland for much of the build and found his communication and project management skills kept us fully involved throughout
Should we consider another building project we would use Smith Construction again and we cannot recommend Nick and his team more highly.
We would be happy to be contacted directly should anyone wish to discuss Smith Construction for their prospective build.
John and Claire Pearson
Smith Construction built our home within the promised time frame, within the quoted cost and to the highest standard we could have hoped for. Communication was second to none and 3 years later our home still feels brand new due to the quality of the finished product. Nick Smith is undoubtedly the best bespoke builder in the area and we’d recommend him to anyone who is building, particularly if their build is bespoke or challenging in any way.
