Our Vision

There’s no ‘i’ in team - and while that may be a bit cliché, we’re not afraid to say it because it helps to explain who we are. 

We all work together collaboratively and effectively, and because we’re 100% locally owned and operated, we have built a great reputation here in the Bay of Plenty for delivering what we say we will, every time.

We have brought together a team of industry professionals to create thoughtful designs and quality craftsmanship.


    Managing Director

    Rob created Federation Homes with the view to providing homeowners with a quality, custom design alternative to project home building.  Affordable architecture should be within reach of everyone.

    Off the land, a real down to earth Kiwi with a degree in agriculture and a great deal of practical experience; he has the right tools to face any challenge.

    In his spare time, Rob loves travelling, tramping and keeping his old rugby injuries at bay with a couple of yoga sessions a week.


    Development Manager

    Oliver worked as a property guru in Auckland before moving to Papamoa with his family late 2013.


    Oliver, having worked extensively in the industry, is an expert at Preliminary Site Investigations, District Plan requirements and finding solutions to complex design issues.​


    When he's not site bound you'll find him at the race track in his much loved race car, but mostly sprawled on the floor having tea parties with his two wonderful daughters.


    General Manager

    After running a highly successful team completing renovations and seismic restorations to historic buildings, Denver joined the team at Federation Homes. Denver is a Licenced Builder (LBP), and studied Project Management at Auckland University - he brings an amazing awareness of the critical construction pathways.

    Denver spends most of his out of work time with his young family and trying to catch a snapper from the beach.

    In his natural habitat you’ll find him coaching his boys junior rugby team or going for a well-earned scuba dive.

    Katie's been in the marketing industry for 20 years, carefully taking care of some big clients.  She brings with her a fantastic instinct for what works along with great experience from real-estate, retail & communication sectors.

What our clients are saying...

“I've always been very daunted by the idea of building my own home. We seriously contemplated building a spec home but after meeting with Federation and talking about all of the possibilities of what our home could be like, we decided to go for something designed especially for us.


The whole process was amazing. It went so smoothly that I would consider building again, except for the fact that Federation built us our dream home and we never want to leave.”
