New Builds

A commercial new build provides you with a blank canvas to create premises that are perfectly tailored to your needs. No matter what that business is, we are able to provide you with a new, functional and productive working environment that's specifically designed to suit your business needs. Whether you are building new offices, or need a new warehouse, our team has the required skills to create any commercial building.
We pride ourselves on quality workmanship and endeavour to reflect this in all work we complete. The high standards that our customers have come to expect is achieved by employing a team of highly skilled tradespeople within our direct control, most of whom have been with us for many years.

Architectural Builds
Any new building offers the unique opportunity to create a legacy and valuable asset for the future - incorporating a strong statement which combines design, quality and a contemporary lifestyle environment.
Building high quality architecturally designed buildings in the Christchurch & Canterbury region is something we excel at. We understand the investment in land and construction is often considerable and we will do everything possible to develop each project alongside our clients to ensure they maximise its true potential and also accommodate all those special and unique features which distinguish it from the norm.
We work closely with a number of designers, architects and engineers to get the desired design just right.
Restricted budgets aren't a problem
When building new we understand that you can sometimes be restricted by a tight budget. That's why at Whyte Construction we use cost engineering, a practice that relates to the management of project cost. This involves activities such as estimating, cost management, cost prediction, investment appraisal and risk analysis.
We can budget, plan and monitor your project. We look for the optimum balance between cost, quality and time requirements.
Our Quantity Surveyors have the judgement and experience required to use principles and techniques for issues of estimation, cost control, budget planning and management science, profitability analysis, project management and planning and programming.
This way we can give accurate cost estimates and schedules which enables us to avoid cost overruns and schedule slips.
Design & Build
Whyte Construction has extensive experience in Design and Build contracts. A popular contract within the construction industry, it requires a contractor with strong project, design and cost management capabilities to execute it well.
We have strong relationships with our architects, engineers and other consultants, and will work closely with you to design your project, working through the specifications, obtaining your resource and building consents and completing your build.
Whether you are building a small retail complex or a sizeable office building, Whyte Construction will devote the highest level of quality to your project.
