Southbase construction specialising in the delivery of commercial construction projects is a recently established Christchurch based subsidiary company 
of the HCG Group.

Originating from Christchurch, the Southbase management team and governance board are well known and trusted amongst the local community.

Offering a fresh approach to commercial construction, Southbase is managed by experienced practitioners committed to a collaborative style of leadership that empowers teams to deliver outstanding results for our Clients.

The chain links of the Southbase logo represent the strong bond between company and clients. A visual metaphor for security of delivery and the link that exists between good management and an experienced operational delivery team. It also represents the security of strong governance afforded by the backing of the HCG Group.

Blue is the colour of blue sky thinking, of challenging traditional building norms to deliver the best possible options available for our Clients. - Green shows care for the build environment and the people who live in it - a commitment to the region and its redevelopment.

At the heart of the company are experienced people responsible for helping shape and redefine the New Zealand construction industry over the last thirty years.

All highly capable practitioners with an excellent collective reputation, they have proven time and again that they deliver. Past projects that the collective Southbase team have been closely involved in include the Christchurch Civic Offices, AMI Stadium Christchurch, Otago Correctional Facility, Forsyth Barr Stadium Dunedin, Victoria Apartments, Watersedge Apartments, Ibis Hotel, Club Tower Worcester Boulevard, NZi3 Innovation Institute, Student Accommodation at University of Canterbury, Wairau Hospital Redevelopment and the Airways Tower Christchurch Airport.


Southbase Construction projects are collaborative partnerships, working for and with our clients and project stakeholders. A comprehensive hands-on management style with real-time reporting systems and honest communication promoting a transparent “open book” process.

Detailed project pre-planning delivers outstanding value and a “no surprises” policy during the construction phase of the project. Establishing a thorough brief of project requirements during the pre-construction phase, working in conjunction with the Client and project consultant team, allows for an exchange of best practice construction technique. This optimises the design, committed cost, delivery and time frame of the project. Southbase Construction has the support and commitment of a locally based subcontractor and merchant supply chain established through decades of relationship management. Access to procurement of resource and materials through a wider national and international supply chain further adds to the surety of delivery provided by Southbase.
