It’s in the name really – Build Taupo are your local builders. Both owner operators have grown up in Taupo and started their family here, no one knows building in Taupo like Jon and Amy do.

Build Taupo is a family run business and we employ a team who take great pride in their work. We build personal relationships with our clients based on trust and give you, your family, and your home the respect you deserve.

Build Taupo does not sub-contract out carpentry work. It will be the Build Taupo team building your new home. Why? We have an extremely high standard of work and by having our team build your home, we can promise our high standards every time.

2013 was the year Jon and Amy decided to create Build Taupo and start putting their stamp on the local building industry, so they can share their passion with people who desire to live in a quality home that reflects their personality, in a location that is second to none.

In the last eight years, we’ve created a community of happy homeowners, we’d love to have you join us.

Build Taupō are proud members of Registered Master Builders and Licensed Building Practitioners.
