Our New Homes division is headed up by Tony Smith, with additional project management provided by Graham McGannon.


Whether you’ve had plans for your dream home drawn up, or it’s still just a couple of exciting ideas in your head … Whether you’ve bought an undeveloped block and you’re ready to go, or you’re planning to start over with a knock-down rebuild … Whether you’re on a rural property or a town block …


….Considine & Johnston have the skill, experience, and local knowhow to turn your dream home into a beautiful reality.


We specialise in custom-designed and architectural projects, and, as members of the Independent Builders Network, we offer over 100 customisable home designs to suit a wide range of requirements, as well as exclusive supplier agreements with industry leading brands. This enables us to provide the range and competitive pricing of a volume builder, with the high quality, local knowledge and personal experience you expect from a custom builder.


Our complete end-to-end new home building service includes:


  • preliminary site inspections
  • design (if required)
  • free detailed quotation
  • council approval
  • demolition (if required)
  • managing and supervising trades
  • assisting you with product selections as required
  • follow-up service after hand-over.

We understand the importance of budgets and time frames, which is why we eliminate all uncertainty by providing you with a fixed price quote and a pre-determined completion date – and stick to them.


Considine & Johnston approach every project with care and we take immense pride in our workmanship. From the earliest planning stages, we work to ensure your new home will fulfil your brief and be economically sustainable to construct and to live in.

GreenSmart Accredited


Considine & Johnston is HIA GreenSmart-accredited, which means we specialise in designing and constructing energy efficient homes that have low ongoing running costs (energy and water). Our homes work in synergy with the site and surrounding environment to perform better, naturally.


We consider:


  • Ideal construction system for the site
  • Thermal mass of the building (how it stores and releases warmth)
  • Orientation (to optimise solar gain to living areas in winter and shading in summer)
  • Insulation and double glazing
  • Window seals to minimise air leakage for protection from high winds
  • Innovative, sustainable products and materials where applicable
  • PV/solar harvesting for electricity
  • Water harvesting systems
