Personally, Craig has spent five of the past fifteen years working on high-specification, architectural new builds, interspersed with large-scale renovations and alterations. Having built both for himself and for clients, we know exactly how you are feeling. Nervous, eager, confused ……so many emotions.

We professionally guide you through our detailed 10 step building process, nothing is left to chance – and nothing is forgotten! Bright Build is unique amongst building companies – our systems, checklists and processes are designed to ensure the highest quality building result and experience, for every client, every single time.
As a family-owned business, Bright Build has the flexibility to help you
No matter which stage of construction you are at. If your land has an older house that requires removal or demolition, we can help. Perhaps you have some land and great ideas, but no plans? No problem! We can help you formulate a brief, and assist you to find an architect. And if you already have plans and are rearing to go – fantastic, we can get started!
Bright Build is a residential construction company that can cater to your entire building process. Our customers tell us about how their homes were made even better because of our advice and consultation. That expertise has been hard-earned from decades of work on building sites around Wellington and London, giving us the ability to see solutions that others can’t. We have knowledge, resources, and if necessary, contacts throughout the building industry in Wellington and further afield to ensure you only get the best result.
So let’s make your new home happen
We work with you to ensure you have the knowledge to make important decisions within your time-frames, and your budget. Once your build is underway, we understand that you may want to make changes. Your circumstances, tastes, availability of materials can all alter over the time you are building – and things can look very different once walls go up! For each variation you consider from your plan, we can advise on the time and cost implications – meaning you have full information before making a decision. At all times, you are kept up-to-date and fully informed through our cloud-based management system. You can log in and see the latest photos, check how the project is tracking, and ask questions – all in one place.
Bright Build size is it’s strength. We are small enough to care and personally ensure the craftsmanship of our work, yet large enough to accomodate complex, $1 million+ new builds with our skilled, professional team. Trust us to complete your dream home, and change the way you live.

Bright Build completed this large, 390m2 home in Seatoun, during 2016/17. It’s one of Craig’s favourite builds – not just because it’s his home and office – but because of the high specification building technology that it contains. The home is based off Passive House principles, meaning it’s warmer in winter, cooler in summer and takes minimal (if any) energy to heat. Solar panels, ventilation system, structured insulated panel walls (SIPs) make this home a pleasure to work and live in. READ MORE
