Building on experience


Auckland-based Olive Homes is proud to partner with Hero Construction, an award-winning New Zealand owned and operated building company which has grown over the last decade to become one of New Zealand’s leading residential construction companies.

Together, Olive + Hero ensure that all their clients’ homes are built with exceptional commitment to quality. Every detail of their exacting specification is comprehensively thought through to ensure that their homes are built to last, giving homeowners the confidence to know that their largest purchase will be a safe, secure, beautiful investment they can enjoy day after day.

Specialists in terraced homes and developments


After many years in the construction industry, including with G.J. Gardner, New Zealand's largest home builder, Dan Oliver saw a sizeable gap in the market between the low-density residential builders and the large-scale commercial construction companies. Auckland needed a builder that had the capability to deliver better, modern housing types, most notably for high quality medium density townhouse developments.

Hero Construction have built nearly 2,000 homes in Auckland, making them one of New Zealand's leading non-franchised residential builders and even won a prestigious Master Builders House of the Year award for terraced homes in 2019.

Combined, Olive + Hero have the scale, quality, history and experience to deliver terraced housing differently.
