In 2013, we established Clune Construction Limited, which was brought to life from our love to build and desire to provide quality dream homes for clients.

“We build because we want to build”

We understand the complexity that comes with building and renovating your home. The process can be daunting especially for first timers, however we work alongside each of our clients ensuring we communicate effectively with you, and all the members involved in the process. We offer complete control and visibility about your project progress through an online project management software providing daily progress.
We want the journey of our clients to be enjoyable and fulfilling as it should be!




Our work is fully guaranteed and we have got your back when it comes to protecting your biggest investment, your Home!
We’ve partnered with one of the largest insurance underwriters in the world, Lloyd’s of London, to bring you Halo – the most comprehensive 10-year residential building guarantee on the market. It’s a unique, independent building cover that’s only available to people who build or renovate with a New Zealand Certified Builders (NZCB) approved builder.
Take aware any fears and worries of an unlikely event occurring during the building process or being out of pocket if something happens to your builder or NZCB itself. If you sell your property within 10 years, the guarantee automatically transfers to the new owner.
What are you covered for?
  • Loss of deposit.
  • Extra costs to complete the dwelling.
  • Structural defects for 10 years including weather tightness.
  • Non-structural defects for ten years.
  • Alternative accommodation requirements.
Moving into your new or renovated home should be hassle free and rewarding. With an NZCB approved builder, you’ll get just that. Our builders are the best in the business with a solid reputation built on the highest standard of knowledge, skills and expertise. We are fully trade qualified Members of NZCB LBP registered.

Our Team

James Clune

I have been in the industry for over 15 years. I always wanted to be a builder and built my first deck when I was 9. I have multiple NZ qualifications including Craftsperson, Joinery and Carpentry.
When I’m not on the tools, you are most likely to find me enjoying family time with my wife and daughter and in the summertime I’m out on the water as much as possible fishing and diving.

Justin Cadwallader

I have been building for 16 years. In that time, I have gone from leading hand to foreman to running my own business. I have high attention to detail and love to be in the thick of it.
When I’m not on the tools, you’ll find me outdoors mountain biking, kayaking and fishing.
