The Pringle Homes Building Process

Concept development

It starts with you! We’ll talk about your vision so we can design a house to suit your lifestyle and budget. Our team will develop your ideas, adding innovative architectural solutions, to plan a home customised for your requirements. And we’ll incorporate the latest in ‘green’ building design for a sustainable and energy-efficient home suited to the local environment. Whether you’re building in the city or Selwyn, Pringle Homes designs houses for Canterbury conditions.

Building contract

Once we’re clear about your requirements, our in-house architectural designer and home design team will create a concept plan for your house. We’ll review this with you and revise it until you’re completely satisfied. We’ll then negotiate a fixed-price building contract so you can budget with confidence (and you’ll find it easier to obtain building finance from your bank). Once the contract is approved, we’ll prepare working drawings and submit them to the local Council for consent.


When we receive your building consent, it’s time to get started with building your brand-new home! With our project managers overseeing every aspect of your build – and our expert team of builders on the job – you can be assured of a high-quality result. We excel at getting things right, but we don’t believe in leaving anything to chance, so you’ll have the backing of our Builder’s Risk and Public Liability insurance. And we’ll keep you informed, so you know exactly how your build is progressing.

Building completion

Before you know it, the construction of your new home will be complete. We’ll thoroughly check your house to ensure every aspect of the build meets our tough quality control standards, and we’ll add the finishing touches, such as landscaping. We’ll also complete the necessary council paperwork and, once the Code of Compliance Certificate has been issued, we will give you the keys to your brand-new home and you’ll be able to move in. Your dream home is now a reality!

After completion

Our service doesn’t end when we hand over the keys to your new home. With Pringle Homes, you’ll enjoy a one-year maintenance period, so you can enjoy your property confident in the knowledge that any building defects discovered later will be quickly and easily resolved. Now that’s peace of mind!
