Advantage Build

Based in Wanaka, our mission is to build the dream homes and businesses our clients want by taking the time to listen to, understand and deliver their expectations without compromising on quality workmanship, materials or cost.

We work with local and national architects to ensure their designs are delivered to a high-standard. With every build, we live and breathe our values.

New builds



Our team

At Advantage Build, we have a close-knit skilled team of professional builders and trades which we know will get the job done to a high level of quality.

Owner, Nevan Jefferies, has over 19 years in the building trade and appreciates the strength of a good reputation and the importance of attention to detail.  

Our values


We are diligent throughout the entire process of building a client’s home. In quoting, we take great care to get the figures right, in building we use only the best materials and techniques to make sure the job gets done right, the first time.


We’re an intelligent building company that takes the time to listen to our clients. We always strive to understand their vision fully before we start a project to make sure we’re delivering exactly what they want.


We’re a company built on integrity and we are transparent in all our dealings with our clients.


We’re committed to delivering the best for our clients and will not compromise on quality, safety or cost to deliver their dream home. We won’t walk away from a job until a client is completely satisfied.


We treat all our staff and clients with respect and we set up and run considerate building sites.

What do our customers say about us

Nevan & his team have transformed our house inside & out to the highest standard.

They are completely trustworthy & do their best to accommodate any reasonable design or building idea.

We wouldn’t hesitate to endorse & recommend them for any build.

Working with Nevan & his team at Advantage Build was great.

From day 1 they were on time, professional & simply got the job done. The team’s insight & forward thinking resulted in some changes being made that ultimately saved us time & money!

Their environmental approach to ordering supplies, the build itself & waste disposal was refreshing & everyone’s commented on the quality of the finish. I fully recommend consulting them on your next build or renovation.

Nevan & his Advantage Build crew did a major makeover and footprint extension on our lifestyle dwelling at Mt Barker in 2017-18. Overall, the project was executed in a timely & financially-no-surprises manner.

The build quality was first rate, mainly reflecting Nevan’s personal standards of finish & his aesthetic vision. Furthermore, makeovers inevitably involve unpredictables or fishhooks that require skills around innovation or problem-solving.

It was principally that aspect that engendered a largely stress-free, client-contractor, business relationship.
