Committed To Building Excellence

At J E Collett Builders we believe in picking the right people for the right projects to achieve the best end result. Building your Christchurch home is a team effort, and at the end of the day, the team at J E Collett Builders are only as good as our subcontractors. That’s why we’ve partnered with a range of likeminded businesses across Canterbury’s building, electrical, plumbing, drainlaying, painting and decorating industries who share our passion for excellence and the drive to exceed our client’s’ expectations. 

When you choose the Master Builders at J E Collett Builders to build your home, you also have the peace of mind knowing each subcontractor who works on your project has been thoroughly vetted, and their work meets our high standards.


Skills To Match Your Home

Building your home is a journey, and part of our commitment to giving you the best client experience is choosing the right people for the job. Trusting a number of subcontractors from each industry gives us the flexibility to sculpt our team, making sure we have the right skills to match your vision for your home. 


Keeping You At The Centre

Chances are, you’ve already dealt with a wide variety of tradespeople in Christchurch. If you already have a subcontractor in mind to work on your home, let us know. We’re happy to meet with them and see if they would be a good fit with our team. 

Because we regularly work with a number of approved tradies, if for whatever reason you’re not comfortable with our first choice in subcontractor, we can quickly find you a replacement, no questions asked. 

At the end of the day, our Christchurch building and construction partners become representatives of J E Collett Builders when we work together on your home, and we want you to be comfortable about what’s happening at every stage along the way. 

Insurance companies Southern Response, IAG and Vero have also assessed our work, our systems and processes and they have approved J E Collett Builders to handle Canterbury rebuild and renovation insurance projects. If your insurer is involved in your renovation or rebuild, let us know.
