Building your ideal living space should be a rewarding journey, not a source of stress. At Henley-Smith Construction, we believe efficient project management is paramount to ensuring a seamless process. By effectively procuring materials and coordinating services, our strategic risk management avoids potential roadblocks right from the get-go. 

We prioritise open, transparent communication with our clients. To achieve this, we utilise BuilderTrend, the world's leading construction project management software. This innovative tool keeps us on point with budgets, schedules, and daily progress, and provides you with real-time updates on every aspect of your project.


Our passion for delivering quality spaces for life is woven into every step of our building process. Cutting corners is simply not in our DNA; we take immense pride in upholding unparalleled quality standards. 

As licensed and qualified builders, our expertise ensures you receive nothing short of exceptional workmanship. Being a member of the New Zealand Certified Builders Association, we stand behind our craftsmanship with an exclusive 10-year Halo Residential Builders Guarantee, showcasing our commitment to excellence.
