Evolution Builders Magic Story
Evolution Builders was founded in 2001 by Craig Parker and Brent Varley. With a combined range of building skills from Boat Building, Timber Joinery and Carpentry as well as already having run previous building companies, they came together on a joint venture and realised they shared a common dream – To create an innovative building company that provides exceptional quality alongside a genuine commitment to service, budget and timeframes.
Over 20 years ago, the goal was to create a building company capable of building the most challenging of home designs with consideration to both form and function. Today, Evolution Builders are Award Winning specialists in Villa and Bungalow renovation and refurbishments and especially skilled in creating contemporary extensions to these beautiful old homes. We have an in-depth understanding of what it takes to pull home renovation projects together, to create a fantastic result. We also build large architecturally designed new homes for some of Auckland’s top Architects.

Meet the Directors of Evolution Builders
Reasons to work with Evolution Builders
Evolution Builders is operated and run by two directors who have 60 years combined experience in the building industry. Both Brent and Craig have been problem solving and innovating new ways to build architectural homes and renovate the old villas and bungalows in Auckland over our careers, so in the unlikely event that we haven’t seen it before, we will work out the very best way to do it.
Another of our specialties is our ability to Project manage large building projects in and around Auckland. We have built great relationships with all our sub-contractors, so to make your building experience easy, you can deal with just one project manager that takes care of quality, cost and timelines of the whole building project.
We have an in-house accounts manager that tracks your building project all the way through, so the financials for every job are always easily accessible. You’ll be kept up to date on a weekly/monthly basis, so you will know exactly where your hard earned dollars are being spent.
We have fantastic onsite building teams, from apprentices that we train up to become fully qualified carpenters, and a select few who then become our site managers. All our builders have been trained by Brent and Craig and follow our own Evolution developed systems checklist so we keep a consistency to our building projects.
Our company ethos is that if we look after our guys, they in return will do a fantastic job. The career path for our young guys is a big focus of what we do, and it is highly rewarding to see a school leaver go on to eventually become a building site manager eventually running projects. All our tradesmen hold certificates in carpentry and all our Site managers are Licensed Building Practitioners.
Evolution Builders are business members of the Registered Master Builders Association, so not only will you receive our personal Rock Solid Guarantee on our building work; but you can also purchase the 10 year Home First Guarantee for extra piece of mind. Through this affiliation we can also offer a range of great contracts designed to be up to date with the ever changing landscape we work in. They range from Full Build fixed price contracts right through to small renovations on Cost Reimbursement style contracts. All the contracts are easy to understand and can be filled out on line. Having these ready to go contracts takes all of the risk and stress out of the contractual side of your project.
After almost two decades of trading, Evolution Builders prides itself on not having left one single client unhappy with the product that we have supplied them. This reputation is something we have worked hard on achieving and we are continuing to improve and adapt our systems moving forward so it can continue. Happy clients are our number one goal!
Enjoyment as well as hard work is a big focus within our company, getting the right people doing what they are good at is key to enjoying what you do, we like to think that this philosophy flows on through the whole building project so the process becomes as enjoyable for our clients as it can be.
