| 63 DEVELOPMENT Bennett Homes: Peakedale Estate Quality homes in local development Richard Loader Bennett Homes has been actively involved in all three stages of the Peakedale development on the outskirts of Matamata. Design and Build specialist Bennett Homes has come a very long way from its early foundations when its time was divided between commercial, farm and residential projects in the Waikato. In 2015, owner and founder, Aaron Bennett found a sweet spot that changed the direction of his business, when he removed an old dwelling from a section he had in Matamata and replaced it with three beautifully designed and crafted town houses. That project delivered what Aaron wanted to achieve in terms of land development and project managing house builds and he rebranded from Aaron Bennett Builders to Bennett Homes, to better reflect his company’s new focus. As reputation and trust grew, Bennett Homes continued to build momentum and a “The key to our work really is the relationships with contractors and suppliers and we spend a lot of time growing those relationships before we commence operations in any location.” little over four years ago ex-English bobby Joe Hardman was invited to join the team to help with the steadily increasing workload. Aaron heads the business along side wife Tammy, with Joe assisting as the General Manager. Aaron and Joe are passionate about helping take Bennett Homes and customer relationships to the next level. “The business has continued to develop and we now have our own design and QS teams, branch managers, site managers and sales team,” says Joe. “ Our Head Office is based in Tauranga and that is where all the administration and design professionals are housed. We have established three branches, which operate from our show homes and cover the Waikato and Southland regions. “Our East Waikato branch operates from Matamata and looks after that town and the surrounding areas, while our Waikato branch has a show home in Te Awamutu with another in production in Greenhill Park, Hamilton. Invercargill is the base for our Southland branch.” Having already purchased land in Cromwell and sights on building a show home in that beautiful Central Otago town, Bennett Homes’ to page 64 long term aspiration is to continue growing and developing branches throughout New Zealand to provide a countrywide offering. While employing its own team of builders in the Waikato, Bennett Homes carefully selects trusted contract builders for projects in other parts of the country “The key to our work really is the relationships with contractors and suppliers and we spend a lot of time growing those relationships before we commence operations in any location. “Our motto is building quality homes at an affordable price. “That means we can undertake the scope of any house — it doesn’t matter if it is 100 squares or 300 squares — our aim, is to offer a good product at the best price we can.
