Client Love.

BLAC Design & Build was amazing to build with. The team was super helpful and supportive, keeping us updated and involved throughout the build. We liked the supplier days; being utterly new to building it was amazing to have an experienced team to hold our hands throughout the new decisions we had to make. The whole team is so lovely, and nothing was too hard for them. They honestly felt like family at the end of the build.

Megan Gibson

We had an amazing experience working with Blac Design & Build for our new build. The team at Blac created our vision perfectly, with the best local suppliers and we loved seeing this project turn into our new family home. It was exciting being involved with every detail from start to finish with them, getting to know everyone that was part of their close knit team and seeing how passionate they each were within the business. It truly is a family run business , and we loved that.
We highly recommend Blac Design & Build for anyone looking to build their dream home.

Chris & Samantha

BLAC did an amazing job building our family home. We found their knowledge and expertise invaluable, especially during the initial design process and we loved supporting a business run by a local family!

Jarrod McLauchlan

Incredible team of local building professionals. I have built a new home in Mapua with BLAC and we love the design, the process has been very smooth, and the team is very trustworthy. If you’re looking to build locally I would highly recommend them.

Cam Burns

The BLAC whole team is so friendly and have been great with every step of the process including their in-house interior designer helping us pick our kitchen, colours etc. which is above and beyond any other building company we enquired with. Would highly recommend!

Lucinda Burns

Thank you so much to all the team at Blac Design & Build. Right from our initial enquiry through to pricing, and onto the final build, your entire team were professional and easy to deal with – nothing was too much trouble! Building a brand new home can be extremely stressful but with Blac everything was easy and we had absolute trust and confidence with all involved.

Shaun McFadden

The Blac team are extremely dedicated and independently invested in their work. I loved seeing them post what they were doing on their social media accounts sharing their excitement for their craft. The high quality of workmanship there for everyone to see every step of the way.
I can honestly say I can fault nothing with our beautiful home by Blac. It is built to perfection. Every aspect of our home is perfect.
Would we build with Blac again? The answer is yes, without a doubt.
