Looking to build?

Specialising in residential and commercial
construction, and project management

Here at Custom Builds, our happy clients and our passion for the art of construction are at the heart of everything we do.

Based in the lower North Island, we specialise in new builds, renovations, remediation of leaky homes, commercial fit-outs, seismic strengthening and project management.  We aim to deliver skillfully crafted projects on time and within budget.


We understand that the building process can be a daunting one – that’s why we’re here! At Custom Builds we provide expert advice to help guide you through your build or renovation. We aim to fit seamlessly into your building process, working with your design team (or helping you find one!) to ensure your project is a success. We offer fixed-price quoting, accurate estimates and innovative solutions to meet a wide range of designs and budgets.


Offering services as both main contractor and sub-contractor, our experience in Commercial Project Management means that you can trust us to take care of it all. From working with your local Council, to verifying lease details with your property manager, to helping you manage your health and safety responsibilities, we’ll ensure your build is completed on time and within budget – and is one that you love.

about us

Experienced builders dedicated to delivering exceptional building projects.

Custom Builds is a small team of experienced builders and joiners who are dedicated to delivering exceptional building projects. We love what we do, and we’re passionate about bringing you the best: for us, that’s quality workmanship, business integrity and professionalism, and a construction process that’s easy and enjoyable for everyone involved.

It’s our goal to deliver you a completed project that exceeds your expectations and that we’re proud to put our name to. We’ll manage your build (like the well-oiled machine we are!) and guide you through the construction process, from conception to completion, using innovative thinking and many years of industry expertise. It’s testament to our talented and friendly team that the majority of our clients come to us via word-of-mouth – and that’s something we’re particularly proud of.


Sean, a Licensed Building Practitioner, began his career in the building industry over 17 years ago as an apprentice at the tender age of 16. He quickly earned his stripes as a highly skilled builder, before becoming a Contracts Manager, then Project Manager, for a number of reputable businesses in the Manawatu and Wellington districts.

Sean brings to the table a wealth of industry and product knowledge, and subcontractors of the same calibre. He’s known for his strong work ethic, eye for detail, and knack for solving the trickiest of problems!

“I engaged the team at Custom Builds to project manage and build three townhouses in central Wellington. I can’t speak highly enough of their quality workmanship, business integrity and knowledge of the building industry.”
