Deavoll Construction: Your Professional Queenstown Architectural Builders

Deavoll Construction is a family owned business, formed in 2011 by Sam and Hana Deavoll. At the start, Sam was a one man band, building his own architectural home in Queenstown, followed by a Straw Bale home in Central Otago. A development project spurred things on and Deavoll Construction expanded for the construction of Graze cafe in Lake Hayes Estate from 2013-2014.

As well as builders, we are also property investors and developers, so after Graze, we focused on building home and income rentals and spec homes. This proved to be very popular and so the Campden Court plan was built as a house and land package multiple times in Shotover Country. The plan encapsulates many of our values in what we think makes an excellent home; efficient use of floor space, north facing for passive heating, residential flat for income generation and modern design features to give it an architectural feel and stand out from the norm.

Since then both the business and the Deavoll family has grown. Baby number 4 has recently joined the family and Deavoll Construction now has 3 experienced and qualified builders, 2 apprentices, Hana in the office overseeing project management and accounts, and a network of highly skilled sub-contractors to provide our clients with results that exceed expectations.

We offer custom-built homes for fixed price contracts, giving you the flexibility to build your dream home with the security of a fixed budget and time frame. As Design & Build specialists we can help you formulate your ideas and get your plans created from scratch. We have an excellent network of independent architects and architectural designers that we work with. Or if you already have plans, or a particular designer you’d like us to use, we’re happy to work with them as well.

Our tagline “Built to Inspire” embodies our mission and what we hope to achieve in all our projects.

When we build House & Land packages, we want to build homes that inspire. Houses that make you think of different materials, designs and building innovations. We love building, so while working we want the projects we work on to inspire us too.

When building for clients, we aim to bring your vision to life, so that you can have a home that will inspire you every day. A home that you love to come home to and that perfectly complements your family and lifestyle.
