The Compass Homes journey.. it's about Creating....
Creating affordable homes ... for a better more reliable building experience
The Compass Homes team have over 45 years of building industry experience and expertise, and we add that passion, dedication and skill into each and every one of our building projects! With successful branches in Rodney, Franklin and Christchurch, and with other areas being developed rapidly, Compass Homes is very much in growth mode – so why not join us on our journey?
There are many reasons why Compass Homes will offer you a better, more reliable building experience, from the orientation of your home through to the experienced advice and value-added construction methods: Compass Homes will ensure your home is everything you expected – and more.
We are, and always have been, New Zealand owned and operated. All of our designs, from house plans through to colour schemes, have been developed by Compass Homes in conjunction with our designers and customers. We employ only the most creative and qualified designers and builders in New Zealand, to ensure that your new home is absolutely perfect inside and out.
Creating communication ... delivering a high level of customer satisfaction
In conjunction with local software developers, Compass Homes has developed a cloud based system for project management and customer reporting. Our software enables our customers to easily and accurately monitor the progress of the building of their new home – as it’s happening. This cutting edge technology offers timetable information and photos of your build project that are automatically emailed to you as building progress continues.
You will be able to access all of your build project information online at any time. This gives you the freedom to immediately check on updates at your convenience, where and when it suits you most.
You will also receive update notifications and emails detailing progress of your building project and if any issues arise onsite, you will be notified immediately. Our project management software also liaises with Compass Homes subcontractors and suppliers to allow seamless integration with your building site managers. This results in a faster and more efficient build process, and an entirely transparent building process.
Our customers should never have to ring us for an update on their building project.
Creating warmer homes ... using the sun
Here at Compass Homes, we ensure all of our homes are orientated to take full advantage of the natural sunlight throughout the day, giving our clients warmer, drier, more comfortable homes. A home that is properly placed to make the most of daylight hours will be brighter and warmer than a carelessly placed home. We also carefully consider your section, making best use of your outdoor space and ensuring that there is ample room for full enjoyment of our New Zealand summers.
Creating stronger, durable, more secure homes ... building in solid concrete
Over the last 15 years Compass Homes has built a large number of homes using traditional timber framing and brick and tile construction methods. We continue to build many houses using these methods and materials.
Being at the forefront of innovation in the building industry has led Compass Homes to working with materials such as concrete and perfecting the technique for building homes in solid concrete. Building in solid concrete sets Compass Homes apart from our competitors. No other group home builder in New Zealand can build in solid concrete and deliver all the benefits that building in solid concrete offers.
While building in concrete may be a relatively new concept in New Zealand, it is the dominant form of building technology in many parts of the world and has a large market acceptance in the global housing industry – for the very simple reason that it is more durable, more reliable, and more affordable. In many parts of the US, Europe and Asia, concrete has been the main form of construction for over 30 years.
