Determined to deliver.

Southbase Group is made up of independent specialist companies with a shared vision to transform New Zealand’s construction industry for good.

Integrated group capability

The Southbase Group model is different from traditional contractors in that we have integrated capability through our key divisional brands of Preformance Building Technologies, Southbase Construction, and Innofab Offsite Manufacturing.

Through the integration of these businesses, and by procuring major construction contracts under our managing contractor model, we can deliver world-class outcomes for our clients, on time, on budget, and to the highest of standards.

We are a New Zealand owned and operated group that connects expertise across the entire construction lifecycle.

With a shared vision to transform New Zealand’s construction industry for good, we combine technology with proven construction experience to find better ways of working that add sustainable value today and for future generations. We’re able to solve complex problems by leveraging specialist skills across each of our independent companies, allowing us to unlock value through buildable solutions delivered on time, on budget and beyond expectation. Our approach is characterised by a tenacious spirit, an open and collaborative style, and living by our brand ethos of “determined to deliver”.

Southbase Group is an ambitious company with a clear vision – to transform the New Zealand construction industry for good.
