We have a saying – ‘Start with Us’. By that we mean seeking our advice as builders even before you have chosen a site, certainly before any plans are drawn. We offer a full service to manage all plans, interiors, lighting plans, engineering, council consents, budgets and pricing, ready to start your build on time.


D.J. Hewitt Builders Ltd is an award-winning Christchurch building company formed 20 years ago by Daryl and Tara Hewitt. Daryl remains 100% passionate about building and is personally involved in most jobs to ensure that the company’s clients receive only the highest quality work.
