WHY DCD

Reputation Counts for Everything

We create amazing Webflow templates for creative people all around the world and help brands stand out.

"Each DCD custom home is built with the same mission statement:
Integrity without exception; craftsmanship without compromise. We are committed to building homes with energy efficiency and lasting value. That is our promise to you."

In fact, DCD homes offer superior quality construction that far exceeds NZ building codes in almost every way.

Some call it 'green building'; we call it common sense building. When you build a custom home with DCD, you are building with an industry leader. That leadership translates into peace of mind knowing you are getting the best possible outcome. Our experienced team of sustainable building contractors in the Queenstown area constantly pursue understanding of how the built systems will operate and perform together (building science) and carefully incorporate products and procedures into the building of your home that make common sense for you. This common sense approach to custom building translates into better, safer, more durable, more energy and water efficient homes.

Your custom thermally efficient home must be exceptional. As well as that, the experience of building your dream home should be enjoyable and exciting. Here at DCD we understand this, which is why we take the time to understand you and keep you updated throughout the entire home design and building process.

Each DCD custom home is built with the same mission statement: Integrity without exception; craftsmanship without compromise. We are committed to building homes with energy efficiency and lasting value. That is our promise to you. - make this a quote from Dennis - more emphasis

Take our word for it.

"If we say we'll do something, we mean it. If there's a problem, we'll fix it. You have our word."

True, DCD is a company that prides itself on quality results. And our vast experience in the energy efficient home sector ensures we deliver on this every time.

Perhaps more importantly though, integrity and collaboration matters deeply to us.

It's pretty simple really. We strive to maintain our impeccable reputation by conducting business honestly and well.

We create amazing Webflow templates for creative people all around the world and help brands stand out.

"Thanks Dennis, to you and your team for a job well done. Our property manager Katrina from Housemart was also impressed with the quality and professionalism displayed by you and your team."

ROB SERVICE, March 2018

"Dennis Dowling is honest, straight up, no nonsense (with a sense of humour), has a professional team, is an expert on construction, budgets and weathertightness and delivers a great product because he cares.

GRAHAM ROEBUCK - NDAT | LBP | Jack's Point approved

“From the design and planning stage Dennis was involved. His advice was invaluable and communication was prompt and efficient. The quality of the workmanship is very high and any issues resolved promptly following completion. 

We love our property and the final outcome has fulfilled all our objectives. In no small part, this is due to Dennis and his team at DCD. His advice was invaluable and communication was prompt and efficient.

The Meadows

Designed by Mason & Wales, this well-appointed home will provide comfort and sanctuary to the retired homeowners, who chose to build on an adjoining property to their adult children, whose home DCD completed the previous year.

Dalefield Homestead

Inspired by the homesteads of old, this picturesque Queenstown home is not only architecturally respectful of its past, but behind the facade is an energy-efficient home boasting Central Otago’s highest airtightness rating.

Quail Rise

This contemporary holiday home in Quail Rise has family at its heart. With large indoor and outdoor living spaces, four bedrooms and three bathrooms it’s designed to accommodate 16 guests.

Dalefield - Retirement Haven

As you age, you feel the cold more acutely, and so we focused on creating an incredibly warm home.

Quail Rise

The brief to this project was simple: build a practical, inviting home that could grow with the family. Attention to detail and smart design in key areas transform this functional family home into a personalized, engaging dwelling.

Dalefield - An Entertainers Delight

Concrete, steel, timber and stone combine to create a stunning home, which takes full advantage of the views in this expansive home. A true entertainers delight.
