Join NZ's Design and Build Specialists

Here is your opportunity to share in the success of a fast-growing New Zealand company.
The foundations for Design Builders were laid over 30 years ago by our founder Andy Bell, when he built a home for our first clients.
Today, we offer New Zealanders something unique by designing and building superb one-off homes, no catalogue or templates. We call it: ‘A home built around you’.
By becoming a Design Builders Regional Partner we’ll enable you to succeed through working to your strengths as we build a highly profitable business. Look around our website and you’ll see what we have to offer is different.
If you’re excited about succeeding in the building industry and are ready to do the hard graft this could be for you. We’ll give you what you need to help you reap the rewards. That’s why it’s a partnership built around you.

Why become a Design Builders Regional Partner?

Over 30 years of success, and counting
Design Builders has come a long way over the past 30 years, and we’re going even further. In some ways, we’ve only just started. There’s a reason for our ongoing success. Like anything that’s built to last, we have a clear vision. We offer clients original homes designed and built to their unique needs.

Backed by a Superb Support Team
Each Design Builders Regional Partner is part of a professional network. Partners benefit from our support. We’ll give you the right set of tools, and we’re not talking the gear that gets loaded in the van. From our award winning design team to marketing and advertising expertise, from the latest IT and HR systems to administration and accounting. All you need to grow your successful business.

Reduced Risk for You
Ask anyone who has started their own business, and they will tell you that it’s challenging. We help you take away the risks, so you can focus on reaping the rewards. Becoming a partner is straightforward, and once you’re up and running, we’ll reduce complexity for you, so you concentrate on building your business, and growing your profits.

Strong relationships with suppliers
Think of Design Builders as a firm that combines the uniqueness of an architect with the clout, buying power and systems efficiencies that a group house building company can deliver. Right off the bat, you’ll benefit from our serious buying power and strong enduring relationships with top suppliers, and much more.

Here's what our Partners say

“Before Design Builders, I lacked the systems and processes to take my business to the next level. I’m more of a builder than an academic, and Design Builders have helped me fill in the blanks. The transition to become a Regional Partner was easy.”
Sam Perrin

“The Design Builders Group of shareholders think, act and behave like likeminded individuals, who have chosen to be in a partnership for our complementary strengths and common motives.”
