Our Guarantee

Here at DC we stand by three pillars: Integrated, Personal and Transparent. Those pillars are what make us the premiere building company in Auckland and Tauranga.


We design from a builder’s perspective. For maximum efficiency, we integrate all design and building processes to make sure there are no awkward hiccups in between. Justin, Mel and the whole team work closely together to make sure home plans are exact, minimising at least 5-10% of construction cost due to costly variations boiling down to a mismatch between designers and builders. We take utmost care not to miss even the smallest details through this design-oriented and solution-based process.

You can be sure that from the first steps we will already have in mind the best quality tools and materials for designing your new home with extremely high building standards. Our integrated approach will save you time, and more importantly, money.

We don’t just build homes, we build relationships. The brothers Mel and Justin Riley add that personal touch to any project while maintaining steadfast professionalism. With their years of experience in architectural design and extensive knowledge of commercial and residential construction, you can be sure that your project is well managed and constructed exactly to your wants and needs.

We off personalised service such as expert and qualified advice, openness to suggestions and reliable communication all tailored to suit you and your lifestyle. It is this overall experience that sets us apart from other builders – we treat your home as if it were our own, building personal connections with all our clients to ensure their experience is as enjoyable and as stress free as possible.

Direct communication is key: our down-to-earth and friendly way of doing business guarantees total transparency. This means absolutely no surprises on all costs and project pricing, and a reliable and direct line of communication. The entire process will be handled by one of our highly skilled and experienced project managers, with regular site meetings and email/phone call updates ensuring you stay in the loop throughout the whole project.

We’ve also partnered with CoConstruct, a cloud-based virtual software. With CoConstruct, all our clients have easy access to everything we do – from financial statements, to selections, to time sheets and scheduling. Here at DC, we want to build trust; all the information you need will be crystal clear to you from start to finish.
