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.


    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.


    Operations 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.


    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.


    Senior Architectural Designer

    As our Senior Architectural Designer, Brad brings a wealth of knowledge and creativity to our architectural team. He has always been creative; he grew up drawing designs on everything and has been talented at it from a very young age. Initially learning his craft while onsite as a builder this helped him to have a full grasp of the array of build practices and unique ways of creating his designs.


    Consistently hearing ‘wow that’s better than I could have ever imagined’ when presenting to clients, he’s used to being awesome.... until he tries to get the team to ocean swim with him during winter!


    Office Manager

    Diane is in charge of the seamless running of the office and brings an unrivaled efficiency and productivity to the team.  She knows how to deliver a premium professional service and is the backbone of Federations relationships with staff, clients and suppliers.

    When not in the office Diane spends time with whizzing around sunny Bay of Plenty in her little car.


    Quantity Surveyor

    Johnny's role is maths, pure and simple (well to him, oh so complicated to the rest of us!!). He measures jobs and calculates the labour hours and materials usages, right down to the very last nail and screw. He makes sure the Build Teams have what they need to do their jobs, when they need it.

    When he's not behind a desk and calculator, you'll find Johnny working on his car, or walking up the mount for the umpteenth time.


    Site Manager/ Trade Lead LBP Builder

    The Big Bad Wolf, he’ll huff and he’ll puff and he’ll blow your expectations apart. 


    With years of experience on high end designer homes, this ex-army, avid fisherman knows what he’s doing and he’s doing it good. 


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


    Marketing & Communications

    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.

    When not in the office Katie loves spending her time at the beach with her family... and appreciating a good Central Otago Pinot Noir!


    Design Consultant

    Sarah has been in the design & build industry for 18 years now.  She brings with her a wealth of experience from owning her own build company, designing clients homes through to working with high-end clients designing beautiful kitchens and bathrooms.


    Sarah is tasked with assisting clients through the selections & design stage of their build to help them pull together a home beyond expectations.


    We are very lucky to have her! 


    Site Forman/Trade Qualified Carpenter

    Always ready to greet you with a smile onsite, Liam takes great care in the builds he’s tasked with. Attention to detail and always 'doing things right the first time’, the care he takes wins him fans everywhere. When not on site Liam is busy studying to become an incredible designer–consistently getting top marks & impressing all who surround him.


    LBP Builder

    Honing his skills as an apprentice under Paul, he now has his big boy hammer and is running jobs himself.  


    Word on the street is that he plays pretty good social grade football & likes playing the banjo in his spare time.


    Apprentice Builder

    The newbie apprentice and our onsite Harry Potter - a magician behind the wheel and also the hammer! 


    Always pushing himself to learn/do more and always keeps the team smiling.


    Apprentice Builder

    Our new third year apprentice to help us keep on top of things & deliver beautiful homes.


    Apprentice Builder

    Third-year apprentice and THE MAN in the boxing ring.  He brings a high level of craftsmanship to the job & is always ready to take on a new challenge. 


    In his downtime, you'll find him hanging out with his young family hitting some wickets.

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.”
