Our Process

Enjoy the ZB Homes Build Process – It’s easy, enjoyable, streamlined and stress free!

There is a lot involved in building a new home, so it pays to have someone with lots of experience looking out for you.

ZB Homes has over twenty years experience, and a team of dedicated professionals that are with you every step of the way.

Over those years, we’ve mastered the new build process so that it’s easy and enjoyable for our clients.

We’ve invested a lot in our systems, software and procedures to ensure a streamlined and stress-free process.

This has enabled us to grow while maintaining high standards. In 2017 we won a top spot in Deloitte’s Fast 50 index and were recognised as NZ’s fastest-growing company.

Understanding the build process

Where to Begin? Here is our step by step process, efficient yet flexible,
we make sure your building experience is one filled with satisfaction and enjoyment.

Before we start designing, we discuss your goals and needs. After our discussion, our qualified architect begins designing your new home based on your desired lifestyle and budget. There are no set plans, so your home takes shape only after we find out about your needs.
ZB Homes presents you with the design concept drawings. These drawings allow you to visualise your home and how it will sit on your land. If you are not satisfied, we will make sure to get it right - even if it takes a couple of drafts to realise your full vision.
Upon sign-off of your design concept drawing, we start construction costing. A few days later, we then present a full fixed price quote and specifications. The specifications will point out what is included and excluded in the price, such as architects' plans and consent fees.
Once you have accepted the quote, we provide you with a Certified Builders Contract. Upon signing the agreement, a contract deposit will be invoiced.
Before we begin the build, working drawings will be submitted to council for consenting. The working drawings typically take up to 4-6 weeks to complete. The council then requires a further 20 working days to process the drawings. Any structural, drainage or geo-tech reports required by council are also carried out during this step.
Upon the plans being approved by council and the building consent being granted, construction begins. Along with a construction schedule that estimates the start and completion date, you will have access to a qualified and experienced project manager as well as our Co-construct software. This easy-to-use software provides you with 24/7 access to building selections, upgrade options, photos and conversations. You are regularly updated and have the option to be as involved as you want to be.
For us, the most exciting part of the project is completing your custom build and handing over the keys to your new home. Nothing brings us more pleasure than welcoming you into your home and showing off all the finished details you selected.
