Number 1 Homes is a team of highly qualified Christchurch builders and tradespeople, with many years of experience in building high-quality homes throughout Christchurch and Canterbury.

However we also have an extensive background in handling large commercial projects involving many millions of dollars and often with quite difficult timelines to be met.

And it’s this experience in large project management and tight budget controls that enables us to make substantial savings when building today’s family homes.

That’s why we guarantee we can build you a stylish modern home – built to the highest possible standard of design, comfort and safety – and at a price you can afford.

And instead of being just another nation-wide group home builder, you’ll have the security of dealing with experienced local builders, based right here in Christchurch.

Licensed Building Practitioners

Licensed Building Practitioners

For your added security, both Directors of Number 1 Homes are also Licensed Building Practitioners (LBP’s) and hold combinations of prestigious Site 2 and Site 3 licences.

All Foreman and carpenters also carry a minimum of Carpentry Licences except for any staff in training such as apprentices etc

Note:   It’s also worth noting that not all builders are qualified to handle ‘restricted building work’ or have appropriately trained staff to handle this work.

However with Number 1 Homes we absolutely guarantee that only qualified Licence Holders will undertake any work on your new home, which safeguards your home long-term.

We also have a strict system of checks and systems in place to ensure you have a compliant and well-built home that will stand the test of time.

However, the Directors of Number 1 Homes have more than 60 years’ experience between them in both the residential and commercial construction sectors and have advanced qualifications including a mix of MBIE Carpentry and Site 2 and Site 3 licences.
