OUR STORY

Dream Builders NZ was founded off the experience of Managing Director Andrew Palmer and when he was sourcing supplies to build his dream home in the Manawatu. He discovered an entire world of building supplies that were high quality with competitive price points. Andrew wanted to bring his discovery to other kiwis and realised there was no current way to do so. With that he did his due diligence and research to see if there was a market in New Zealand to do so, and if it was viable.

By creating trusted relationships with our Supply Chain Manager Tommy in China, he sourced everything he needed to build his dream home, and based on that experience – coupled with utilising the same supply chain direct from the manufacturers for his existing business AP Plumbing – Andrew sought to bring this to the industry in New Zealand.

With that, he put together the team to deliver that to New Zealand, and Dream Builder NZ was formed.

We at Dream Builder aspire to create an e-commerce platform that is completely transparent, end-to-end marketplace for builders, fitters, designers, developers and DIYers to make the best choices in building materials and supplies, without compromising on price or quality.

As construction costs and material costs increase, New Zealanders are looking for better alternatives and offerings to improve their homes, develop their property investment portfolios, and create elegant dwellings that are up to the latest compliance codes, or simply build their dream homes that won't cost them a lifetime.

We wanted to bring in materials and supplies that would last generations and break the leaky-home cycles and poor builds that we grew up with. We wouldn't put something we don't trust in our own homes, and neither would you.

OUR PARTNER

Our partner George is a massive Manufacturing hub, with a showroom the size of Matamata (kind of) and a catalogue with as many items as there are craft breweries and cafes. In other words: heaps and heaps.

Located on the southern shores of Foshan, China, they manufacture and supply over 50 countries and territories around the world. How it works is easy – they have economies of scale that produce the highest quality goods.

They produce everything from custom lounge suites, ready-to-go kitchens and wardrobes, to the lighting fixtures that turn any space into a dreamscape. Quality assurance is our number one priority, and we wouldn't have built our own dream homes with the supplies if we had any reservations.

Like our relationships with our partners, we like to build trust and know who we're working with. Don't hesitate to drop us a line or shoot us an email and we'll get back to you direct – not another call centre or offshore office.

OUR SERVICES

We understand that it can be both intimidating and time-consuming, as well as confusing with the hoops we have to jump through to get compliance and certified here. That's why we wanted to go the extra mile to provide a comprehensive cradle of support from end-to-end, utilising our collective industry experience and expertise to take the hard out of getting it right.

Custom Product Design

Every dream can turn into reality with Dream Builder. Find a daybed that doesn't quite fit that nook? No worries, we've got the capacity working with a team of designers to make sure you can read your favourite book with your favourite cab sav instead of worrying about how to fit a square peg into a round hole.

Personal Shopping Assistance

We know how busy it can get balancing life, and we don't want to be wasting time or getting frustrated when planning and building your dream home either. That's why we provide personal shopping experiences, so you can do the dreaming and we'll do the heavy lifting. Let us know what your after and we can guide you through all the possibilities.

Quality assurance

Like our costs, we don't compromise on quality – EVER. We have a 100% quality assurance guarantee with our entire range of supplies and products. We wanted to bring in materials and supplies that would last generations and break the leaky-home cycles and poor builds that we grew up with. We wouldn't put something we don't trust in our own homes, and neither would you.
