About Whelan Building

Who are we?

Whelan Building Ltd are Waiheke Islands premium building company. We specialise in the project management and construction of quality new homes as well as renovations and additions to existing homes. We work with a range of NZ’s best architects and a team of trusted suppliers and professionals to help make your Waiheke Island dream home a reality.

Owner and Director Geoff Whelan has been a builder for 30 years. His building business began in Ponsonby, however after completing a cafe and public platform development in Oneroa village, other Waiheke projects quickly followed. In 2014, he closed his Auckland building business to focus entirely on building on Waiheke. Geoff is a Registered Master Builder, NZ Trade Qualified, Licensed Building Practitioner (Site 2), and a member of Site Safe.

Whelan Building now have 25 builders on the island. Our staff are Trade Qualified professionals, or are actively working towards completing their apprenticeship.

Why Choose Us?

We work alongside our clients to make their new home or renovation project a reality and to ensure the building experience is as enjoyable as possible.

Geoff says “ We work closely with you and your architect to ensure you get exactly what you want in your new home or renovation. We often get involved at concept stage and meet architects and other consultants to help you work through your requirements, the consent process and other decisions. We believe the planning and communication procedures we follow are critical to our success.”

Building on Waiheke presents a unique set of building challenges, but our extensive experience means we can help navigate the building process and make it as smooth, efficient, and cost effective as possible.  In addition to that, we have a team of suppliers and contractors that we trust and know can deliver the quality we expect.

Our aim is to ensure that the home we build meets our client’s vision and expectations, while running on time and to budget.
