The Meadows

Dalefield Homestead

Inspired by the homesteads of old, this pretty as a picture Queenstown home, is not only architecturally respectful of its past, but behind the facade is Central Otago’s highest airtightness rating and triple glazed joinery. A beautiful home both inside and out. You’d be forgiven for thinking this award-winning home has been here since the turn of last century. The deep front porch beckons for long sunny afternoons into the evening with friends and family.

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.

"Thanks Dennis, to you and your team for a job well done. Our property manager Katrina from Housemart was equally 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.”

MIKE & STEPHANIE GOWAN, August 2018
