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.
Award-winning Christchurch builders
DJ Hewitt Builders commitment to quality is reflected in its proven performance record. Since first entering the House of the Year Awards in 1998, they have won more than 50 awards in New Zealand’s House of the Year competition.
Ode to the past – charm and character in every detail
The owners of this home never planned on undertaking a building project until they lost their treasured 1920s home to seismic activity. They have now completed their stunning new family home, and concede that the entire project ‘went very well’.
Ground breaking, award winning
Over two levels there are numerous indoor and outdoor living areas as well as three deluxe bedrooms and three bathrooms. Exposed steel beams provide a central brace from the entry lobby up to the kitchen and dining areas and are a striking feature in a home that has been created to impress.
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.
