Cost Effective Building

Value For Money

Why are we more cost effective than other housing companies?

We pride ourselves on being one of the most cost effective builders in Auckland. To achieve this, we have developed proven systems that enable us to build smarter and more efficiently. Some of the factors that enable us to offer reduced pricing compared to our competitors include:

We build our exclusive home plans only.

These are designed, engineered, and detailed ready to build. There are numerous efficiencies that come with this including management of the build and supplier bulk purchasing.

Our homes are efficient.

We use smarter design practise in all our exclusive designs to reduce unnecessary cost, this essentially means more house for your money, and more useable space and comfort in the house.

We manage all aspects of construction.

By having full control of all works relating to the build through to obtaining the Code Compliance Certificate, Ashcroft is able to work most efficiently, managing supply partners and contractors that are known to us, all of whom have been selected based on prior performance.

We are independent, not a franchise.

Most group housing companies operate on a franchise system. Aside from each franchise being owned by different operators and the uncertainty that can come with that, those franchises have to pay franchise fees to head office. As an independent company you get this saving.

Our project management system is smarter.

Our Project Managers keep all our new build projects on track using a market-leading, cloud based Project Management tool, specifically developed for residential construction. This award-winning tool ensures our team have everything they need, when they need it, including the most recent communications, all project documentation, current task lists and jobsite activity. Through use of a smartphone app, our Project Management team can access this information with ease, wherever they are, 24/7, maximising project efficiency for our clients.

Minimal overheads.

Overheads are a cost to a business, but ultimately a cost to customers with these costs being factored into the final pricing. We minimise overheads wherever possible without compromising our service to clients. An example of this is not operating show homes but instead showing you through homes that we have recently completed or are nearing completion.
