Quality. Crafstmanship. Passion.


If you need more space for your growing family or a change in lifestyle, there’s no need to move house and start again. A well-designed, custom-built renovation will give you all the space and comfort you need.

From adding extra bedrooms or bathrooms to completely refurbishing your Christchurch home with all the modern comforts, our quality work and craftsmanship will enhance your property, and help you fall in love with your home all over again.


Each home is unique and comes with its own history and character. Collett Construction know how to renovate and refurbish your home, blending the old with the new while preserving the look and feel that you love.

We love the Canterbury heritage and challenge involved in renovating older character homes, restoring them to their former glory. We take great care to make sure that any contemporary touches are in keeping with the building’s’ original beauty.

Our Garth Terrace renovation project on this 100 year old home won Silver at the 2017 Registered Master Builder House of the Year Awards in the Canterbury Renovations up to $500,000 category. The team at Collett Construction preserved the home’s heritage and style, while opening up the living areas and adding a new deck and outdoor entertainment space.


Home renovations and repairs pose more challenges than building a house from the ground up. When Collett Construction constructs a new home we have the plans, all our people are involved, on the same page and working together.

When renovating or repairing an existing Christchurch home, we never really know what we will find until you pull back the plaster board. Building techniques have changed over time, so you need an experienced team who understands how to integrate your new house plans with the existing structure.

Time, heat, damp and earthquakes can take their toll on building materials. Walls and floors that were once straight might have slight curves and bends. Collett Construction are experienced renovation problem solvers and can straighten out your issues to bring your repairs and alterations up to code.

We used JE Collett Builders to repair our earthquake damaged home after cash settling with EQC. Jonny was instrumental in helping us resolve our stalled claim and it was great to nally get the project off the ground after waiting for over four years. We found Jonny and his team very approachable, friendly and helpful. They protected our house during the process and we always felt we were in good hands. During the repair process we took the opportunity to address some weather tightness issues and make some improvements. JE Collett builders and their subcontractors did a great job and have left us a home that we are proud of. We have no hesitation in recommending Jonny and his team for repairs or new builds and we will de nitely use them again in the future.
