A Better Way To Build

As a Gisborne based family owned building and construction company, Rodney and Sarah Lincoln who bought to Gisborne a better way to build a home with their franchise operation Design Builders in 2010, have raised the bar again.

Passionate about building wonderful homes, they have brought to the market their own building company Premier Homes Construction Ltd – to build Premier Homes! They are continuing to be supported by their experienced project manager Shayne Rankin, who with his own building experience and knowledge, gives clients peace of mind with any project.

Rodney and Sarah understand both the excitement that comes with home building, and the nervousness of the unknown, and have the industry experience, customer service background, and knowledge to help their clients build their dream home.

Premier Homes Construction Ltd also allows for their other well known and successful building company JRT Building to brought under the same operation giving true meaning to “design – build – remodel”.

Premier Homes is also looking at bringing exciting new initiatives to the local building scene to make the whole process an enjoyable one and to offer a higher quality service than previously experienced.
