Fogden Builders is a family run business that was established in Daniel and Michelle’s hometown of Whangarei, in January 2011. After the devastating Canterbury Earthquakes they decided to move to Christchurch to help with the rebuild. During this time the environment was fast paced and busy, the experience and knowledge gained has proven invaluable.

Early in 2017, they moved back to the North Island to be closer to family and friends, settling in Mangawhai. They specialise in building new homes in Bream Bay, Mangawhai, Waipu, Ruakaka, Whangarei, Wellsford, Dargaville and Maungaturoto.

Daniel started his building career at the age of 15. Now, with 20 years of experience, he still loves building and brings his quality workmanship and attention to detail to every project.

He is a member of the Certified Builders Association, has a Level Four National Certificate in carpentry, completed an advanced trade in carpentry and is also a licensed building practitioner.

Working with a specially chosen team of architects, builders and sub-trades, Fogden Builders can ensure that the finished product is of the highest possible standard – we are not a mass-producing housing company, we specialise in custom new homes. We work with you through each step in the process, taking your ideas and supplementing them with our own expertise.

Throughout our years in the building industry we have discovered how a business should be run and what really sets a building company apart from the rest and those values are what drives Fogden Builders still to this day:

We believe in…

  • Professionalism
  • High levels of communication
  • Respect
  • Honesty
  • Consistency

These values have allowed us to gain respect within the industry and please many of our clients with our outstanding service. Thanks to these philosophies we have very happy clients who are proud to recommend Fogden Builders.

Fogden Builders built our family home in 2018. We found Dan to be a great communicator and a meticulous builder with an eye for detail. We’d be happy to use Fogden Builders again and have no hesitation in recommending them.
