About Us

Experienced Auckland Home Builders

Owned and operated by project/construction manager Daniel Ward our business came about as an evolving need for a building company that did what they said, charged for what they worked, valued their staff, paid everyone on time, and generally aimed to put positive perceptions of builders back into the building industry.

Dan has over 22 years of experience in the building industry, working on everything from multi-million dollar architectural new builds to major renovations, and has gained a wealth of knowledge that our clients benefit from daily. Dan is also a qualified building specialist in Passive House Construction.

We place importance on staying current, evolving with new regulations, and keeping up to date with the latest building systems and innovations.

What We Do

New Home Builds and House Renovations


Already have your dream home in mind or need a few ideas?

We can help with every aspect of your project, from the ground up. With a network of skilled professionals, we commit to working closely with you to get the most out of your time, budget, space & materials, project managing the entire build or allowing you to take more control.

We make the process as quick and easy as possible, without compromising on quality.


The first step is to book a no-obligation meeting with Dan to discuss your new project and in addition to this, we will send you a questionnaire via email to further understand both your expectations and to gain more clarity about the project scope.

We will then complete a site meeting to discuss all aspects of your project and ensure that a synergistic relationship is assured between us all.


If you have not yet engaged an architect, you can rest assured that we have a network of some of the most talented architects and designers in NZ. Your chosen architect will then be able to complete a concept plan that fits your requirements.

We will be on hand to help facilitate the design and consent process with both you and your chosen architect to ensure we all share a mutual understanding of the project from the outset.


During the pre-build stage, your plans are methodically broken down into tasks which facilitates both an accurate estimate of time and materials as well as being the foundation for the project schedule.

This process highlights and eliminates potential errors and identifies opportunities to improve as well as limiting the likelihood of costly, unexpected variations.

For your total peace of mind, we offer full Project Management Services which includes, once engaged, our clients being provided with a detailed project management plan clearly clarifying expectations around every part of your engagement with iCreate Building.

You will truly enjoy the transparent and client accessible project management software ‘Buildxact’ we use, allowing you the most meticulous and immersive experience within your project.
