Chatterton Builders About Us

Team Work, Effective Systems, Passion for the Job and Relationships....we do 'Give a Damn'

Our passion and expertise provide you with a healthier more comfortable home of exceptional quality.

As sports enthusiasts, we believe building a home, is likened to committing to the BIGGEST race or event that you have ever done! You want to enjoy the journey and relish the challenges. The goal is always success and to achieve the best result you can.

Chatterton Builders have been building quality homes in the Canterbury Region since 1998.
In the last 10+ years we have made a conscious move towards higher performing passive housing and energy efficient homes built well above the minimum building code.

A major element of performance is good design and quality materials. However, neither will be effective without high quality workmanship and proven experience in the specified construction methods.

Quality has always been our major focus, so it was a no-brainer to expand our business into more specialist areas of high-performance design & construction.

We have completed many passive houses and structural insulated panel (SIPs) projects, from architectural homes to social housing and new schools.

Our SIPs experience is highly sought after in the industry and we also undertake our own SIPs panel assembly for our own builds, and for others, at our panel assembly plant in Rangiora.

Having been one of the first builders to achieve accreditation to build with SIPs in NZ, the desire to create more high quality, warm, healthy living environments has been realised through involvement with iPHA (International Passive House Association), like minded designers, and specialist supplier relationships and continuing education.

We also construct architectural and architectural hill builds, having a wealth of experience in this area as well. The attention to detail and quality workmanship is necessary in both construction types, and our guys love a challenge.

As well as our skilled building teams, our company offers our clients a dedicated project manager, and client liaison. We have an experienced designer on site but are also fortunate to have several highly regarded architects & designers that we work closely with.

A Boutique Service Tailored to Your Needs

Our services focus on providing the best outcome and experience for you.    

This is not a one size fits all.  Understanding your needs, priorities and budget, alongside a detailed understanding of the building science and practicalities, is what sets us apart from many others claiming to do the same.  We also insist that the builder, designer and homeowners work closely together as early in the process as possible and this close relationship continues throughout the entire project.
