What we do
We help you to realise the dream of your new home; or transform your existing home with integrity, craftsmenship and care.
Riddington Builders handle the complete project for you, managing all works including sub-contractors to deliver your dream home and ensure a successful project outcome.
We believe in approaching a building project as a team, working closely with you and the designer at concept to help develop a design that delivers what you want, within your budget.
Restricted Building Works
If your work involves ‘restricted building work’ (RBW) you will need a licensed building practitioner – or LBP – to do it. Restricted building work involves the building’s structure, weathertightness, and design of fire safety systems. Because this work is so important, it’s only allowed to be done by licensed building practitioners (LBPs).
Riddington Builders are LBP's and can identify and discuss the Restricted Building Work aspects within the scope of your build, advise time and budget considerations, and complete your project to all required regulations.

Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment
Riddington Builders believe a renovation is about transforming the way you live in your home, and work closely with each client to interpret existing and new spaces, and the integration between them, to fully realise the renovation design and dream.
Whether you have a character villa or newer home, Riddington Builders have an extensive renovation portfolio in Auckland with references available.
Character home restoration and heritage projects are a speciality of ours. Character restoration and renovation requires considerable care and craftsmanship to retain the features of the existing structure and achieve a seamless transition to the new extensions.
We understand heritage considerations and complexities and have the experience to provide you with the right options to achieve your vision.
