Building With Us
Here at Riva Homes we create bespoke, high quality family homes that are designed to match the families and lifestyles they are built for.
We build a relationship of mutual trust first, develop an understanding of your requirements and design preferences, and then we use that foundation to build your dream home.
Our extensive experience covers architectural homes to town-houses, single and double storey, major or minor dwellings, forever homes, additions to existing family homes or even investment properties – we can do it all.
We can design and prepare plans for you, or you can bring us your existing plans. We work alongside many Architects and Designers, and are happy to work with someone you specify. We also offer advice and services around site assessments and feasibility studies, planning, subdivision and developments.
We are essentially a family team, delivering custom-built, family homes. If you want to work with a company with a personal touch, one that really cares about you and your build, and has a reputation of delivering quality, to budget and timelines – then let’s talk, 0800 748 246.
Our customers are our number one priority and to deliver their dream home we know it takes 4 key elements. These key elements make us different from other builders and ensures your build experience is stress-free and enjoyable.
Riva Homes considers trust to be a key element to building and working as a partnership with our customers. Because our homes are bespoke, it takes a little more work on our end to ensure your selections are perfect and your home is customised to suit your family and lifestyle.
You will be walked through your build every step of the way – from the planning right through to handing over the keys. You will have access to our colour consultant to help make great selections. You will receive weekly updates on your build, along with access to our building software so you can see first hand where the schedule is at and how your budget is tracking.
We guarantee quality, regardless of the specification of the build. We hold our team and our trades accountable to deliver to our Quality Standards Programme. Our New Build Home Care programme ensures any defect or fault (if any) is sorted out within the first year. We are Master Builders and our 10 year guarantee is offered on all of our builds.
You get regular updated and direct contact with Gerad. If there’s ever anything else you need to know, be sure to ask! We have many years of building experience and can provide great advice. We strive for 100% customer satisfaction and treat our customers and their builds as if it were our own, that’s the Riva way.
We Build Trust
First, we start by listening: we get to know your family and help create the vision for your home – no cookie-cutter solutions here!
Then, we support you to design a dream home that suits your family’s needs.
Next, we’ll help you calculate the costs to suit your budget and agree on a price with no hidden costs.
Third, once the build is underway we’ll communicate with you clearly at every step so you feel informed and can breathe easy, knowing we’ll deliver and by when. We work with like-minded tradespeople who care as much as we do, and we approach the build as an extended team.All the way along, we’ll give you straight-talking advice and information, anticipating your questions before you’ve even asked. At Riva Homes, we’re confident in our expertise, and we’re happy to pass it on to you. We’d love to work with you to create your dream home, just the way you want it.

“Removing our original home of 20 years to build a new home was a journey we embarked on with a lot of mixed emotions. Riva Homes worked with us from day one to make our vision become our new home and helped ease the uncertainty we had in the pits of our stomaches. The relationship built with the team in the early stages (pre breaking earth) helped us become more excited and go all in without looking back. What really helped us through the build process was the honesty and transparency in the communication with the Team, and the respect, space and time given to us when we needed to make decisions throughout the process. Gerad and the team would give us the information needed to make decisions that were right for us. Any questions along the way, were never too big or too small and always answered. Friends and whanau ask me if I would build again. Our experience with Riva Homes gives me confidence to say a big YES and it would be with RIVA HOMES. Ngā Mihi Nui Gerad, Danielle and Team, we continue to love our home”
“The team at Riva Homes was there from beginning to end. Most difficult was the consenting process that was taken care of and we were kept in the loop through every step. Gerad was there at every stage of the build, keeping us informed, and we were comfortable with what was going on, knowing all we had to do was pick up the phone”
“The guys from Riva Homes are one of the best outfits I’ve worked with in about 5 years. They offer a onestop shop with experienced staff, regularly hitting timeframes and budgets. They are also one of the most affordable and as a property trader, that is so important. They are highly recommended”
