Do you want to build a new home, but don’t know where to start?

Here at Pointbreak, we help you realise your dream.

We start at the beginning and then work alongside you the entire way. From starting new plans to that last coat of paint, we are there with you. If you don’t have plans, we can refer you to one of our preferred architects. They will help you design the perfect home for you, for what you need, and for your budget. We enjoy being involved with this stage as we can add value with ideas from our years of experience in building beautiful, energy efficient, sustainable homes.

Why build with Pointbreak Construction?

Your new home is likely the biggest investment you’ll make in your life. We ensure that we make the process as simple and transparent as possible, with your home delivered on time and budget.

Are you bothered about budget blow-outs?

Don’t. We have a fixed price guarantee on all our contracts. As long as the scope stays the same, your price does too. There’s no uncertainty and no budget blow-outs. Once we’ve quoted your job, we stick to the price.

If you do decide to add, change or remove something, we will give you an accurate estimate of how this will impact the original budget and get your approval before proceeding.

Do you query the quality?

We build our homes in a logical efficient sequence. This allows for cost and time savings, but also means that every step of the process is rigorously followed. We have a detailed 200-point quality checklist that ensures your house is built to the highest standard.

Our construction partners and sub-contractors are licensed and qualified, hand-picked for their high-quality finished product. Your project is overseen by a Licensed Building Practitioner and you have NZCB’s Halo ten-year Residential Guarantee.

Do you have concerns about communication?

Good communication forms the basis for good quality working relationships. Part of our programme is weekly reports to you with the status of the project, photos and any variations or program changes. At all times, we know what’s happening on site and make sure that you do too. There are no surprises.

Are you troubled over timelines?

While there are many things that may influence the timeliness of the project, we work hard to anticipate problems, offset then, and complete everything on the agreed due date. The weekly reports let you know what is happening and when, allowing you to plan your life. We have online project management software that lets us see how changes affect the rest of the job, and we share this with you.

We say what we do, and do what we say

We are honest in our dealings with you. Your project means as much to us as it does to you. We don’t create unrealistic expectations or false hope, and we always honour the commitments we make.

As well as everything else, we also provide:

  • A free colour consultation with our interior designers
  • A commercial clean upon completion of your build, dinner-party ready!
  • A visit from our painter at the end of your defects period for any touch-ups, so the house looks newer for longer

How we work with you

First contact

Make a booking for a free zero-obligation meeting. We will ask you to complete a brief questionnaire to give us more information before we sit down and discuss your dream.

Site visit

Meet with Martin on-site to discuss your ideas further. This is also where we can anticipate any challenges and opportunities for your project.

Design and estimate

You may have plans, or you may need help from us putting your dream on paper. We will arrange for a concept plan to be finalised that meets your needs and budget– which we can use to create a pre-liminary estimate. This is where you can make changes to the plans or we can re-look options to alter the contract price.

Fixed price guarantee

Once we have the final plans and price, we can provide you with a complete fixed price, guaranteed not to change (unless you move the goal posts…). You will also receive a full program and set of specifications.

Once this estimate has been accepted your plans can lodged with council for consent.

Contract and guarantee

Based on this price and set of plans we sign a comprehensive contract. We also provide you with the HALO 10 year Guarantee and our Pointbreak 5 Star Guarantee.


Your house starts to take shape during this very exciting stage of the project. We manage every aspect of the build and meet with you regularly to discuss progress. From sub-contractors to suppliers and council, we handle the whole process to bring you home on time and on budget.

Practical Completion and handover

On completion of your home, the local building consent authority will undertake a final inspection. This is an independent evaluation of your home and provides a Code Compliance Certificate ensuring your home is of the highest quality.

Pointbreak 5 Start Guarantee

Enjoy your new home with the peace of mind of the 10yr HALO guarantee

We will also arrange for a painter to come do touch ups for one day after you have moved in and a year later at the end of our defects period.

Don’t just take our word for it!

“Most builders want to just get in and out, but he takes pride in his workmanship and that of his guys. The joinery installers told me it was the straightest house they have worked in! I cannot recommend him highly enough, he answers his phone, sticks to his promises and does a great job.”

“Martin really cared”Joy Tarling | Mays Rd, Christchurch

“We have found Martin excellent to deal with. He is professional in his approach and his workmanship in all aspects of the build. Being an architectural home, Martin has had to interpret quite a lot as the plans often don’t show the required detail. He works well with his team of builders and other trades.

Martin has a wide building knowledge and can foresee issues before they arise.

I highly recommend Martin.”

“Martin foresaw issues before they arose”Garry Bond | Clyde Rd, Christchurch

“Martin helped us design and build the extension to our house. He listened carefully to what we wanted and got his designer to put our ideas on paper and added his own to save us money. Our work was finished on budget to a very high standard and we were never in doubt as to the status of our project – if we had any questions Martin answered them ASAP. I highly recommend anybody looking for builder to speak to Martin”

“On time, on budget and highly trustworthy”Lindy Moore | Slate Str, Rolleston
