Tackling the challenges in Whitianga
Located in Whitianga, this home was built to extreme levels of energy efficiency utilising ECO-Block, a polystyrene block filled with concrete.

Award-winning Whitianga based Dyer Construction has just completed two stunning architecturally designed homes which showcase the company’s capabilities, says owner Frank Dyer.
The first project designed by BCD Projects is located in Hot Water Beach. The two storey 282sqm home offers five bedrooms and three bathrooms.
Raking ceilings, a large skylight in the entrance-way and a double sided fireplace give the home a grand and distinctive edge. It is clad in Accoya vertical shiplap weather-boards on the top level and stack bond brick veneer on the bottom level.
The house is entered via a schist lined passageway. Angled posts at the front of the house go from ground up to the roof level.
Frank says the project is located on a challenging site with houses all around and a single lane right of way.
The project involved cutting into the side of the hill and extensive retaining walls.
The second project, located in Whitianga, was built to extreme levels of energy efficiency, says Frank, utilising ECO-Block, a polystyrene block filled with concrete.
The 400sqm home has triple glazed Siberian larch joinery imported from Germany.
The home includes three bedrooms, three bathrooms and large open plan living.
Frank says 700 kilogram ranch sliders were tricky to install but the team at Dyer Construction rose to the challenge.

The two level home is clad in a Sto plaster system with a charred Eccoya façade.
“These projects really demonstrate we can take on any type of project and are not afraid of challenges or trying new materials and construction methods,” he says.
Frank, a Licensed Building Practitioner who has around 15 years of building experience, started his business in 2015 and now employs six staff including his partner Dana Nash, who is in charge of the company’s administration.
The team includes two qualified builders and three apprentices.
Based in Whitianga Dyer Construction mainly works on the Coromandel Peninsula but will go further afield depending on the project.
The company focuses on architectural new homes and large renovation projects and can build from clients’ own plans or assist with this part of the process putting them in touch with the right architect to deliver their vision.
Dyer Construction won a gold award in the 2018 Registered Master Builders House of the Year competition for the Auckland/Northland region in the new homes $1m-2m category
.He says the region is still busy and at present Dyer Construction is working on a number of projects including an architecturally designed two storey garage/studio in Whitianga, an ablution block at Hot Water Beach Holiday Park and is just completing stage one of the renovation of a two storey house.
“We are a young passionate team of builders, eager to deliver the high quality projects.
“We’ve never had to advertise as all our work has come from word of mouth from satisfied clients.
“Our aim is to remain a boutique building company so we can maintain good control over the build process and provide our customers with the best service possible.”
