Residential Thin

Humphries Construction are experienced in all types of residential projects, we understand a new home will be most people’s biggest investment and ‘your house is your castle’.

We ensure every detail of every home we create is of the highest standard. We only work with the most trusted trades people and view the finish of each home as though it were our own.

Commercial Thin

Humphries Construction has grown strongly into the commercial sector of our industry since 2003. We have the services of an experienced in-house Quantity Surveying team lead by Nicholas Chapple who comes with many years experience in the industry. We have a proven track record including the successful completion of major jobs for Toyota NZ, Manfeild Park Trust, Westpac, BNZ, NZ Pharmaceuticals to name a few.

We are familiar with precast and insitu concrete systems and have constructed steel portal buildings with a single span in excess of 70 L/m. We have the management and systems in place to enable us to be the main contractor for construction contracts of significant values. We work closely with the client, consultants, project managers and quantity surveyors to ensure all expectations are exceeded.


Whilst in the past we have completed a number of contracts on a labour only basis we are predominately a main contractor overseeing all aspects of the construction contract.

We have a large team of skilled employees to undertake a variety of construction projects. These include at management level, Managing Director, Office Manager, Project Administrator and a Quantity Surveying team. On site we have Project Managers, Foremen, Carpenters, Apprentice Carpenters and Labourers. All of these personnel are well supported by our “jack of all trades”, Barry, who services each site with gear, scaffolding, supplies, recycling of rubbish and electrical testing of all our equipment.

If you’re keen to become part of our awesome team, keep an eye on the “Jobs” section of our website for roles as they become available.

Site Works

Site works by nature is a very technical and specific trade within a construction contract. Humphries Construction have overseen and constructed projects which have a significant component of site works. This can be anything from cut and fill, excavations, foundations, hardstand areas, drainage, sewage, car parking, landscape and paved areas. We have experience in all of these areas and would welcome any contract that was weighted more to site works than building construction work.

Design & Build

Many of the projects Humphries Construction has undertaken have been of a design and build nature. These have been and include spec housing, client projects (residential), commercial property development, and work through negotiated contracts for owner/occupiers.

Our greatest example of this has been the Manfeild Park Agricultural and Equestrian Events Centre (value $10mil).

We have the expertise of an in-house design team (pak design) and also work closely with our preferred Architects and Structural Engineers to achieve our client’s vision and requirements through the design and build process.

The benefits of being engaged at the ‘front end’ of the project and from a brief are that we can fully cost the proposed project, follow through from the initial concepts until the job has been constructed and completed, and ensure all necessary consents are obtained.

We are familiar with the Resource Consent process and the issues that may arise, conversely we are up to date with our local district plan and property zoning requirements.
