The team at Casa Construction has had a big year already. A brand refresh, launched in March, has helped to position the business for expansion down south to Wanaka. Now with the Master Builder awards in full swing, Casa is focussed on completing more houses that are as beautiful and well-crafted as this year’s entry, titled ‘Light Luxury’.
Light Luxury is perched delicately on the Cashmere Hills, with broad sweeping views of the city and beyond through its industrial height windows.
The house itself is simple yet it is the details – courtesy of architect Thom Craig – that set it apart. The Casa team worked collaboratively with both client and architect to deliver the finishes required to ensure those aforementioned details, would sing.
Attention to the details is a particular passion of the Casa team. Managing Director, Jeff Root says, “anyone can build a house but it’s the hundred little things that we do differently that turn a house into a home”.
The team knows that when collaborating with architects this catch phrase becomes even more important. “Our architect partners have a vision. It’s our job to take that vision, fit it to the client’s budget and help realise the dream in the best way possible.”
The 2018 Master Builder Awards for Canterbury will be announced in July, with National awards announced in November. While the Casa team wait for their results, they will begin to apply their gold standard building practices to their first architecturally designed home, on the outskirts of Wanaka.

It’s going to be a big year for the Casa Construction team. With Wanaka’s population continuing to grow, Casa Construction has decided to start operating across the area, beginning early 2018.
Casa will primarily focus on residential new builds, working with local architects and building teams to deliver beautifully crafted homes.
Working in Wanaka has been a long-term dream for Casa Construction Director, Jeff Root. “A number of our clients either have holiday homes or are looking to move down that way. We’re delighted to be able to work with them on their new projects down there.”
Both construction activity and costs are expected to continue to increase in the broader Wanaka area, yet these challenges have not deterred the team. A number of innovations in supply chain, sourcing and team management are being considered to ensure the award-winning Casa Construction team can continue to exceed client and architect expectations.
Jeff adds, “It’s exciting to be able to bring something a little different to the market. There are a number of good operators down there already. We’re looking forward to the challenge of delivering the Casa promise of being on-time and within budget while maintaining the highest quality construction experience possible.”
The Casa team will kick off its Wanaka venture with projects in Hawea and West Wanaka. The team will be led by Jeff who will commute fortnightly, as well as a lead construction manager on the ground.
Casa Construction will continue operations in Christchurch alongside the new Wanaka venture.
