Welcome to Compass Homes for the Wellington and Kapiti regions. I am proud to bring this quality building and design system to the region. I’m Gabriella Williment and after looking at every building company in New Zealand I have found a respect and kinship with the process and the people that Compass brings to the table.


Yes, I’m a woman, and yes, I’m a builder. The reason that I partnered with Compass Homes is I want to bring my design flair and passion for build projects to the market in a way that creates cost effective, but cool and practical homes for fellow New Zealanders.


My construction career began at 17 years old with a Tiny home, a school project that evolved my basic skills and interest and resulted in a Tiny House that I lived in for over a year and then sold to build my next one. My next one was bigger and better and was in high demand when I eventually sold it, to fund the next stage of my life.


Starting with tiny homes, a growing movement that focused on effective use of space, clever design, and a simplistic approach to living, led me onto some bigger builds that invited a different mindset but maintained similar relevancies.


Beginning my building career on the tools has given me a strong grasp of the construction process. I have been involved in the construction of both huge open plan homes, and small, well designed homes, so I have a broad scope of ability in design and construction, catering to each individual client.  I have a close eye for detail and apply that with great care to every building project, be that my own, or my clients.


To balance my skills, my partner Michael brings a strong business background with successful entrepreneurial start-ups across health and property and others in between.


We know the ingredients for success in this sector and bluntly they are strong construction management, a strong and experienced build team that delivers every time, coupled with great communication.


Our already assembled line-up have these areas covered with massive experience and building success oozing from our quality team.


The communication piece with us will be second to none and our clear priority is with our clients.  We will assist the journey from initial sketches to helping sort finance if required, through to shared dates and images of critical delivery points.


Our goal is to become a household name in our region for efficient project delivery, of great designs, on time and on budget.


We are in the building and relationship game and that is what you can expect. We look forward to a chat with you soon.
