Build & Construction Services

Commercial & Residential Construction Services

In cities that have been repeatedly challenged by earthquakes and flooding, it's important to engage with one of the few building companies Christchurch & Auckland that have had operating for over a decade; we've stood the test of time and gained considerable experience both commercial and residential construction services. A building company that hasn't been exposed to disaster-relief construction doesn't have the depth of knowledge in repair strategies or the understanding of what's required to reinstate structural integrity to the same level as we do. We specialise in earthquake and flood-related residential construction services, so whatever it is that you require can be built to a safety standard that will endure nature at its best. Of course, outside of natural disaster-related construction, we understand the importance of great communication to make sure projects run smoothly.  We commonly get asked for assistance in concrete repairs, renovations, foundation replacement and project management.



Arguably The Best Of Building Companies
Christchurch & Auckland-Wide

Building companies in Christchurch & Auckland aren't always the best communicators, whereas we see this as our strength in managing your building projects. After all, you're seeking advice, expertise in residential construction services and leadership in a project that you're unlikely to know a great deal about. Rest assured, we do, and we're happy to advise you while still remaining humble enough to know that you're the boss; unless it comes to compliance, of course. Our Wrightway leadership team will usually lay out your options, give indicative pricing and then make recommendations on what experience tells us is the right decision. At the end of the day, you're calling the shots. Once you've indicated how things are to proceed, we'll detail a full scope of works and then talk you through the vision and process in detail.

General Construction Services & Partnerships

We offer an array of commercial building repairs and residential construction services that you'd come to expect from Auckland and Christchurch construction businesses, including the opportunity for you to access & link with our partners, such as Quantity Surveyors, architects, and Geotechnical & Structural Engineers.

We've carefully selected New Zealand's best companies and form partnerships for our customers to access. You'll get priority treatment and accurate advice that doesn't cost the earth.

Project Management

Building project managers are worth their weight in gold when constructing a new home, major renovations, or disaster remediation. Our Auckland and Christchurch PM's can oversee your existing building project, or lead and strategise first-hand. Most builders in New Zealand, when asked to provide a service outside of their immediate skill-set, say yes. It's the "she'll be right" attitude, but it's often an expensive lesson. It's best to engage qualified project management companies with a senior planning team, so your Auckland or Christchurch building project runs smoothly, and on budget.


House Levelling

House levelling is a common requirement in Christchurch. After the earthquakes, many homes moved on their foundations, making the floors unstable, which can cause consequential damage over time. We can level your house in a number of ways. Read about jacking techniques, house lifting and more.


House Repiling

House repiling occurs when your piles have been damaged in the earthquakes or if they've deteriorated over time. It's amongst the most common building repairs, Christchurch wide. We lift your house, replace your piles with modern technology. Once complete, we balance your home, ensure all walls are straight, floors are balanced, and windows and doors open correctly.


Foundation Repairs

Foundation repairs, including foundation replacement, are both common earthquake-related problems for Christchurch houses. Wrightway Construction is one of the few remaining companies who have worked alongside EQC from the very outset, specialising in resolving any foundation issues you have, with the least amount of disruption to your family and home.

House Cladding

With the amount of earthquake-damaged homes in Christchurch, Cladding and recladding have become a common requirement for our customers. We have specialist staff who are detail orientated and incentivised to give you the very best exterior finishes you could hope for.

Foundation Replacement

A solid foundation is the backbone of any New Zealand building, providing support and stability that can withstand movement in events such as earthquakes and floods. However, over time, various factors such as soil subsidence, water damage, and structural issues can compromise the integrity of your home's foundation. When signs of foundation damage become apparent, foundation replacement may be necessary to safeguard your property and restore its structural soundness.
