Jennian Homes has been building top quality homes in the larger Canterbury region for more than 20 years. Part of a nationwide franchise company, Jennian Homes, is a Registered Master Builder and provides a 10-year Master Build Guarantee and a 36-month maintenance warranty.
The company has a solid reputation of design quality and customer satisfaction. Canterbury North General Manager, Dwayne Prendergast and Operations Manager Paul Jenkins uphold that reputation by overseeing all projects from sale to completion of the build, through to handover.
Jennian Homes Canterbury North offers several build choices, including house and land packages, and design and build options, all over Canterbury. “We want to make the building process as easy as possible for our clients,” says Client Liaison Sue Prendergast.
The company has a presence in several well-established subdivisions such as Faringdon in Rolleston, where there is a display home at 7 Lemonwood Drive. There is also a display home at 9 Westpark Drive Rangiora. Both are open Wednesday-Sunday 12-4pm and are great examples of the stunning homes that can be produced.
It is proud to be one of the preferred building companies in two of Canterbury’s newest subdivisions, Ravenswood in North Canterbury, and Halswell Commons, in Christchurch. There are also many house and land options available in the greater Canterbury area as well.
“At the moment, we have house and land packages from $550K, superior quality family homes, in Halswell Commons,” Sue says. “We can also do design and build. We help you find the perfect section, and you tell us what you want in your home.”

Industria now has its name in bright lights at burgeoning Rolleston Square.
The design and gift store specialist with a spacious funky fitout opened a second location last month – the ultimate for practical, well-made and quirky designer items and furniture. Serving the Selwyn region, owner Janine Reese, along with Bronwyn and Mel, are proud Rolleston locals who know just what customers want.
“More people care about buying sustainable and ethical than ever before,” Janine says. “LilyBee reusable, beeswax-lined food wraps, made in Hawkes Bay, come in incredible designs. Our first shipment sold out in two weeks.”
There’s stainless steel straws, Joco glass reusable cups and S’well bottles for hot or cold drinks on the go.
Most items are New Zealand made or designed – from jewellery ranges such as JHD Designs to amazing artwork from New Zealand artists and affordable gifts.
A click and collect option on www.industria.co.nz to pick up from Rolleston Square or The Colombo in Sydenham, makes life even easier.
Clients can sit back and enjoy the building experience by choosing Compass Homes. The company’s process is relaxing and enjoyable and the result is a good quality home.
There are three very experienced Home Consultants at the Christchurch office who understand the emotional investment involved with building a dream home and are great listeners, with the ability to point you in the right direction to transform your dreams into reality.
While you will be spoilt for choice with more than 70 contemporary house plans to select from, each design can be easily customised to meet a client’s needs, wants and dreams. Compass Homes is flexible and can meet a range of needs, with house and land packages available or the company can provide design and build services if you have your own section.
There is an experienced team of designers, engineers and project managers, who are highly skilled at considering the individual building site orientation, budget, and the purchaser’s personal style and future needs.
Three show homes in Christchurch – Kaiapoi, Rolleston and Preston’s Park – allow potential clients to experience the homeliness and style the company offers. The fittings are all high quality and what you see in the show homes is what you get, all-inclusive in the price of your own new home, so no surprises when the account comes in.
Working with a smaller intimate company that focuses on customer service has huge advantages as clients are never ‘just a number’.
The business uses innovative technology to keep the client up to date via an online project management system and that means a client is always aware of progress as it’s happening. The company ethos is strongly focused on the importance of open communication and full transparency throughout the building process.
It is run as a joint venture (not a franchise) between the national owners and the branch owner. Unlike some franchise situations where an ‘all care but no responsibility’ scenario operates, Compass Homes has an ‘all care and all responsibility’ structure. The national owners have a personal liability and responsibility in each branch.
In addition to the 10-year Master Builders Guarantee and the 12-month maintenance period, each branch carries extensive public liability insurance to protect against all events, giving clients the confidence to relax, sit back and enjoy the journey.
Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! You’ve been planning since the proposal, now it’s time to start working towards healthy glowing skin for the big day.
The team at Caci suggests beginning your pre-wedding regime six months prior. Start with a free consultation at a Caci clinic, where the team can recommend the best options for your skin.
Treatments suggested may include microdermabrasion for uneven skin texture, photo rejuvenation for redness and dark spots or sun damage, micro needling for scarring, or appearance medicine for lines and wrinkles.
In your final week, have one final treatment, but be wary of anything new and stick to a treatment you’ve found most beneficial.
Then there’s the big day – make sure to get at least eight hours sleep and follow your normal skincare regime. Leave the rest up to your makeup artist and enjoy your day!
Book your free consultation at Caci today, 0800 458 458 or visit www.caci.co.nz.
