Christchurch Builders & Earthquake Specialists

Wrightway are the tried and true Christchurch builders and trusted earthquake construction specialists. We construct spectacular new-build homes that Cantabrians can rely on regardless of what mother nature throws at us; who better to build homes than a company specialising in structural strength and integrity.

New Builds

Who better to build you a quality home than a company that was founded on earthquake strengthening and structural integrity. We build homes, not houses, meaning that every build gets considerable attention to detail that you'll enjoy for many years to come, and in doing so, we're being sought after by homeowners who have been advised and encouraged by EQC for a rebuild. Our homes are put through a rigorous quality assurance checkllist before handover, and you'll be given a 6-month retention clause, holding us liable for any defect you find after you've moved in. We want you to be exceptionally happy and singing our praises to your friends. We are one of the few Christchurch builders that construct only a handful of homes at a time rather than spreading ourselves thin; we get the little things right.

Specialising in Earthquake Repairs

Wrightway have been working closely in amongst EQC repairs since day one, and are one of the few remaining Christchurch builders that have stood the test of time. There are plenty of cowboys in the construction industry, but Wrightway have a solid history and the customer testimonials to prove it. We do the little things right and ensure your home is as good as, if not better than
We provide you with end-to-end EQC repairs, as well as general construction services. Our experience in Christchurch has compounded over the last decade, developing specialist expertise in earthquake repair methodologies. We work closely with EQC and private insurers to ensure that earthquake damaged homes are repaired to an acceptable standard. We are amongst the best of Christchurch construction companies who can take the stress out of your earthquake repairs.

  • We really appreciate the great work Wrightway team has done for us. Particular mention to the change of repair strategy that not only saved time but also saved a significant amount of money for us .I would certainly recommend Wrightway to other homeowners in the future.

    We are still in awe of the spectacular way in which Wrightway's overcame the many obstacles before the first nail was even driven. Council-insurance and storms. The end result bears testimony to the capability and intelligence of a thoroughly professional team.

    They were great, helped me with the process, in getting a review, from EQC. The previous botched earthquake repairs were not great, but with the help of Wrightway, EQC came to the party and reviewed their contractors previous work. Thanks Wrightway!

    Hamish and the team at Wrightway were excellent to deal with when completing earthquake repairs on my Uncle's property in Monaghan St. Prompt, efficient, a tidy paperwork trail and excellent work. Thoroughly recommended. They care about their clients. Thank you! Rebecca Toone - agent at Ray White Real Estate.

Projects run smoothly when EQC repairs are scoped with the end-goal as a delighted customer. Not exactly rocket- science is it? What seems to have occurred within the Christchurch rebuild, is that Christchurch builders are only focusing on individual elements of a repair, rather than managing an end-to-end solution that’s frustration free. EQC repairs should be completed correctly, accurately and on-time. As a result, Wrightway Construction has committed to a zero defect guarantee.


Wrightway is one of the few preferred, trusted Christchurch construction companies working with closely EQC on earthquake repairs. Wrightway doesn’t accept mediocrity and doesn’t under-quote simply to win the job. An understanding that repairing a job correctly in the first instance is far more intelligent than having to rerepair, time and time again. A “Zero Defects” guarantee shows that we value our good name, our integrity and that we’re committed to excellence.



Every step of your EQC repairs is documented and reported to you, throughout the process. Clear direction and communication form our Christchurch builders and project managers promotes healthy relationships between all parties involved in your project. As well as keeping everyone in the loop, it also allows us to anticipate challenges, and easily adapt, when jobs uncover their true colours which are sometimes unavoidable. Communication is what keeps everybody positive and focused on a great end result.
