We guarantee to make your dream home a reality. No project is too hard – from state of the art residences to complex builds on challenging sites or remodelling existing dwellings – we have the experience and expertise to make it happen.

We have a pool of trusted architects and architectural designers to help us realise your vision, or we can work with you and your chosen professionals.

For a successful project where everything happens on time and on budget, we make sure the following things happen.

Clear design brief

Building your own home is a detailed and complex undertaking that needs to start with a clear brief followed by careful planning. We will work closely with you and your architect to ensure your vision is followed through from design to completion.

Team approach of client – builder – architect engagement

The best builds happen when the client, builder and architect work together from the start of the project. Your vision as the client starts the process off. We will then help the architect to understand any potential problems with factors such as site layout, access and soil conditions. The architect then uses all the relevant information to develop the design elements most important to you.

Great project management

Building a home is a complicated project that requires careful, knowledgeable management. Mike Craig Builders can provide complete control of the project management process thanks to years of building experience. This means that potential issues can be quickly identified and problems arising along the way are solved efficiently and expertly.

Quality building team

To many, the idea of renovating can be daunting.  Here at Mike Craig Builders we have the experience and knowledge to take the stress away.

When you remodel or renovate it involves complex design considerations as well as detailed construction methods to achieve the right result. With good project planning and on site management we can ensure that your job will run seamlessly and efficiently.

With our cost and margin approach to these projects you are left with no nasty surprises.  Whether it’s a minor bathroom upgrade or large scale extension and remodel, we have you covered.

Structurally Insulated Panel (SIPs) Construction

If you are looking for an economical, sustainable home that is strong, durable and energy-efficient then we can help you make it happen. We are leading experts in the latest Structurally Insulated Panels (SIPs) house construction method.

SIPs are incredibly efficient and high performing building panels for walls, floors and ceilings. Each panel is precision cut to fit your individual building plan before being locked together. This method not only saves construction time and money, it also creates a well-insulated home with a much warmer and drier environment.

Houses built using SIPs have multiple positive benefits, including complete design freedom to create beautiful homes that are superior performers. These homes are also cost effective to heat and cool, which means big savings today and in the future.  Read more »
