About Us

Home builders of exceptional houses since 2004

Smith Construction was started in 2004 as high-end architectural home builders in Auckland.
Leading the way in quality workmanship is owner Nick Smith, who has reached the required standards in construction and business management to meet the criteria for becoming a Certified Builder. This means all projects are fully covered under NZCB’s Halo 10 Year Residential Guarantee Insurance.

As a Licensed Building Professional with over 8 years of experience at the time, Nick wanted to deliver top quality homes to his clients.

“I wanted to be involved in transforming exceptional architectural home design into stunning homes, using innovative building techniques and sustainable modern materials and building systems.”

For Nick this meant working on projects from start to finish, from offering advice on choosing land packages and working closely with the architects on attaining the best home design to project management and delivering a quality build with a high standard of finish, right down to the landscaping.

Working with leaders of New Zealand home designs

Since making the break to start his own company as independent builders, in Auckland, then relocating his base operations to Mangawhai, Nick has turned Smith Construction into a success, with rapid steady growth and 100% customer satisfaction.

The team Smith Construction has working on a home build is hand-picked from professionals who have the same mind set and high standards of workmanship as the company.

Key to Nick’s success in turning Smith Construction into leading home builders is his dedication to delivering a superior standard of building and providing an experience for his clients that is stress free, inspiring and enjoyable. His reputation has earned him the respect and recognition as a builder of quality home designs, and he regularly partners on home building projects from among New Zealand’s leading architects and architectural designers.

About Nick Smith

Licensed Building Professional

Nick’s construction career began in 1999 as a builder, working in Palmerston North and Auckland, where he developed his skills in home building to a high standard, working with a wide range of materials and building systems, learning what worked best in different site conditions and to meet specific requirements in finish and performance.

When Nick set up Smith Construction in 2004, the goal was to bring all his experience to bear in creating a full package of services from start to finish, working side by side with the client and designer to achieve the best possible result.

Smith Construction operates out of Mangawhai, where Nick lives with his wife and son, along with two cats and two dogs. They enjoy being part of this thriving and close-knit community as a family in this idyllic part of New Zealand.
