Your fully licenced local builders

Adam Proffitt and Jess Berridge took the plunge in April 2021 and decided to give up their day jobs and jump right in the deep end by starting their own family construction business. Initially called Ninety by 45 Construction, they decided to rebrand to Build Creative as it better reflects the work they do – designing and building extraordinary living spaces. 

Jess is an architectural designer, a Licensed Building Practitioner and draftsperson with a diploma in Architectural Technology from NorthTec. She has a special interest in rendering and can create the most amazing photorealistic 3D images for you to see your ideas come to life.

Adam holds a National Certificate in Carpentry and is a fully licenced builder and they are both experienced Project Managers. Within the years they’ve had in the trade, they’ve used their knowledge and technical abilities for a range of exciting local Design and Build projects.

With a growing team, they specialise in Design and Build solutions for clients in Northland, specifically in Whangarei, Whangarei Heads Waipu, Tutukaka, Ruakaka, Ngunguru and One Tree Point.  Their dedication to building and renovating beautiful homes where every detail is carefully considered is what makes them stand out from the rest.

Where most builders are the main contractors who hire others to design and build, Jess and Adam do it all themselves. They are open to alternative building methods and excited about creating spaces where people feel happy to live and work in.

Build Creative will help you achieve your renovation and construction goals, on time and within budget. They are fun to work with, communicate openly and honestly, and will always leave your site clean and tidy.

This team provides a true end-to-end service and treats every project as an opportunity to roll up their sleeves, solve any challenges, and get the job done. Contact Build Creative today if you want a design and build process that’s smooth and stress-free.

Keeping an open mind is vital in the design process. When deciding the layout of the rooms, we consider your family dynamics and how we can future proof your home. Jess, our inhouse draftswoman, can create a 3D image of your architectural design. It will give you a lifelike experience of how your space or building will look before it is built.

Architectural design and detailing is storytelling with a modern workflow. It forms the foundation for your construction project. It allows us to develop your ideas more accurately, and we can identify potential problems early on to reduce costs. It’s a way to show you the full picture in detail and finetune everything before we build.

If you already have your layout largely mapped out, we can work with your existing plans and finalise them professionally to submit for building consent. Although we have a special interest in home renovations, we can also help with the design and construction of new builds in Whangarei and the surrounding areas.
