Building ‘in the blood’ for family fi rm
Wellington-based company, Grove Homes, only undertakes new home builds.

Clients of Wellington-based building company Grove Homes receive a truly personal building experience dealing with several members of the family-owned business during the process.
Director Jeremy Williams undertakes sales, working with clients through the contract stage and then answering any of their questions during the build. Jeremy’s brother Nick, the other company director, takes charge of the build making sure everything goes smoothly.
Their sister Corinne is company office administrator ensuring this important aspect of the business is carefully managed.
The company was started over 40 years ago by their father Humphrey and Jeremy says that this is a key selling point with clients. “It gives people assurance that they company has been going for a long time,” he says.
“Our family values are the connective tissue of our business, assuring cohesion and strengthening operations in way that is unique to family-run businesses. People are drawn to us because of our passion for building and that building is in our blood.”
He says that this also extends to who the company chooses to only work with like-minded professionals who understand and reflect Grove Homes’ strong business ethics.
Jeremy says that this ensures Grove Homes remains renowned for providing a comprehensive, knowledgeable and friendly service. Grove Homes works throughout the Wellington region and only undertakes new home builds.
Jeremy says that by focusing on just new builds Grove Homes has built up a solid reputation for quality. “You can’t last in this business for 40 years without being good at what you do.
“Not only are we expert at our craft but we have always understood the value in making our customers feel assured, understood and generally cared for, just like family,” he says.
To make things easy Grove Homes has its own set of plans – the Lifestyle series, offering a sophisticated option, and the First Home series of homes up to 150 square metres targeted at first home buyers or those wishing to downsize yet seeking a high quality yet economical build.
Jeremy says the plans offer well-considered smaller homes that are cleverly designed to utilise space for easy living, while still having a sophisticated aesthetic.
Grove Homes also offers a full design and build service and clients are also welcome to arrive with their own plans.
Grove Homes is about to start work on eight house and land packages being offered in Wise Street, Wainuiomata. The three to four bedroom homes will sit on 500-550 square metre sections.
All are sold reflecting the popularity of the company’s offering. Grove Homes is also offering house and land packages in Kenepuru Landing, a large subdivision in Porirua.
These will be aimed at first home buyers and people can register interest, says Jeremy. Grove Homes employs a trusted team of contractors and subcontractors.
The company is a Licensed Building Practitioner and all Grove Homes houses are backed up with a Builtin Home First 10-year guarantee for on-going peace of mind. “The Grove Homes experience is all about our people and our service,” says Jeremy.
“We understand building a new home can seem daunting so we listen to and understand people’s needs and expectations when it comes to building their home. We are passionate about delivering on those expectations, while making the building process as understandable and as stress-free as possible.”
