Beyond building excellence

DJ Hewitt Builders has been building award-winning homes in Christchurch for over 25 years. Founded by Daryl & Tara Hewitt in 1994, each build exemplifies their own personal passion, drive and pursuit of excellence.

Specialising in architecturally-designed new homes and hill-builds, remodelling and renovations through to housing additions and property enhancements, DJ Hewitt Builders work alongside many of New Zealand’s leading architects, designers and consultants.

Our approach is focused on serving you. Ensuring the experience is one that extends beyond building excellence – an experience that evokes a true partnership, genuine care and a building experience that adds true value to your project.

We have a saying when embarking on home building – ‘Start with Us’. Time and time again, seeking our advice as building experts, even before you have chosen a site and certainly before any plans are drawn has paid dividends in enhancing the end result and maximising budget.

Reinstated original quake damaged home with a few tweaks

This is a four bedroom home with study and attached double garage with a small open garden courtyard in the middle of the home. The attention to detail of the negative detail between the raw blockwork and the internal cladding is a fine example of quality workmanship.
