Right from the project scoping meeting, we include an architect to help shape ideas & costs before they become expectations.

Fixed Price Promise
Fixed Price Promise

We model out full construction at the outset and know the cost of every part of your build. Once we have determined the costs of your project, this is guaranteed.

We are one of the few NZ companies to manage all builds with Building Information Modelling systems. This ensures control of costs and resources and allows us to manage completion times.

Projects we've enjoyed

We love a challenge best of all.
See how we’ve applied our thinking caps to these projects to get great results for our clients.

“We looked at three different companies but Tuatara was the one…

..that really stood out from everybody else. One of the reasons that we went to them was because they were able to supply and have the structure built in a really good time frame, which suited our needs." Tobi Hickmott, Advantage Plastics

How we work

We hand-select each member of our core team to manage your project based on their relevant skills and experience. This ensures that we have the optimal resourcing on every project and means we always deliver on time, and budget.

We’re proud to help

Ultimately, we measure our success in client satisfaction. A construction project for a commercial building is a true collaboration of ideas. It is through the challenge of meeting some of your unique or individual needs, both aesthetically and practically, that we can push the limits of what is possible and achieve something that surprises beyond the brief. Exceeding your expectations is what makes us proud.

Our services

We manage every step of the construction process; from the initial scoping meeting and renders, through to the consent process, construction, and code of compliance. We offer clients a fixed price guarantee and use BIM to ensure the completion of projects on schedule.
