Our Managing Director Brent Tapp started Urban Homes in 2010 after having spent 13 years on the tools all over the Wellington region. He is a trade qualified builder, a member of the certified builders association and a licensed building practitioner in site classes 1 and 2.

Together with the 40 years experience in the building industry of our Sales Manager Stephen Chalmers, we offer a complete peace of mind pricing and build management package.
