The Compass Homes Journey.. It's About Creating....

Creating affordable homes ... for a better more reliable building experience

The Compass Homes team have over 45 years of building industry experience and expertise, and we add that passion, dedication and skill into each and every one of our building projects! With successful branches in Hibiscus Coast, Whangarei, Northland, Auckland South, Central Otago, Franklin, Kapiti, Western BOP, Christchurch, Southland and Wellington and with other areas being developed rapidly, Compass Homes is very much in growth mode – so why not join us on our journey?


There are many reasons why Compass Homes will offer you a better, more reliable building experience, from the orientation of your home through to the experienced advice and value-added construction methods: Compass Homes will ensure your home is everything you expected – and more.


We are, and always have been, New Zealand owned and operated. All of our designs, from house plans through to colour schemes, have been developed by Compass Homes in conjunction with our designers and customers. We employ only the most creative and qualified designers and builders in New Zealand, to ensure that your new home is absolutely perfect inside and out.



Creating communication ... delivering a high level of customer satisfaction

In conjunction with local software developers, Compass Homes has developed a cloud based system for project management and customer reporting. Our software enables our customers to easily and accurately monitor the progress of the building of their new home – as it’s happening. This cutting edge technology offers timetable information and photos of your build project that are automatically emailed to you as building progress continues.


You will be able to access all of your build project information online at any time. This gives you the freedom to immediately check on updates at your convenience, where and when it suits you most.


You will also receive update notifications and emails detailing progress of your building project and if any issues arise onsite, you will be notified immediately. Our project management software also liaises with Compass Homes subcontractors and suppliers to allow seamless integration with your building site managers. This results in a faster and more efficient build process, and an entirely transparent building process.



Creating well designed homes ... delivering value engineering

We pride ourselves on streamlining the building process to keep your overall costs down, a process we call ‘Value Engineering’. Our focus is on building homes for a lower price while maintaining the highest quality. We carefully consider what our clients want, using our experience and skill to ensure the final product is as efficient as possible, without compromising design!


One of our fundamental beliefs is that your new home must exceed your expectations, in every way possible.
