Residential Renovations
& Project Management

Depending on your Brief, we’ll ensure the renovation is sympathetic to the building’s existing aesthetic, or, that it’s a complete transformation! House Lifters can also Project Manage the entire renovation process - including Design Plans and Engineering drawings.

Our Engineers, Designers, Builders, and vast network of trusted tradespeople have the expertise to achieve the highest levels of precision and innovation (especially important when renovating Villas and Character homes).



Give your property a lift:
Add A Storey

With our 3-metre High Lift, House Lifters can lift your property, then build an extra level underneath:

  • Living or Commercial space
  • Rental / Self-contained Unit / Granny Flat   
  • Internal Access Garage   
  • Basement Conversion


With spiraling property prices and smaller sections becoming the norm in many urban areas, more and more New Zealanders are investing in Lifting their property, and adding an extra storey underneath (a particularly prudent option in Auckland and Greater Auckland).

Lift & Build: House Lifters can Project Manage the entire process, including Design Plans, Building Consent/s, and (if required) Resource Consent.

Our Directors, Rod and Stuart Moore, have a wealth of Residential and Commercial construction experience, including multi-level Commercial projects. Our team also includes Registered Engineers, Designers, Licensed and Certified Builders, plus a vast network of trusted tradespeople.  


House Lifters is recognised internationally for our Lifting expertise. All our Lifts are designed, overseen and signed off by one of our Registered Engineers.


Renovation Process


An in-depth meeting with you, and ideally, anyone else involved in your decision-making.

To create the Brief, first we identify your budget, then learn about your goals, ideas, likes and dislikes.

Show us what inspires you, and bring any existing plans - no matter how rough!

3D Concept Design Plan

House Lifters’ in-house Building, Design and Engineering team creates a Design Plan, Engineers drawings (if required), and a breakdown of costs.

We’ll present and discuss these with you in person.

Full Design & Consents

When you’ve finalised your Concept Design Plan and signed the Contract, House Lifters creates working drawings and a Full Design including Engineering, which we’ll lodge with the Council for Building Consent.

Construction Program

While awaiting Building Consent, House Lifters produces a Construction Program - detailing how your renovation will be completed by handover date.

Your Project Manager then has a Pre-start meeting on-site with our sub-contractors.


Renovation Begins

House Lifters brings your Design to life!

The Project Manager will oversee the sub-contractors, worksite, Council inspections, monitor and update the Construction Program, and keep you fully informed throughout the renovation.


Renovation Complete

When the property’s 100% ready to handover, your Project Manager will meet you for a final walk-through.

All documentation (e.g. Code of Compliance) will be complete, and House Lifters provides a Certified Builders Homefirst 10-Year Builders Guarantee.
