Dominion Constructors is a family-owned construction company, which has been trading for over 45 years.

Proud to be a 100% New Zealand owned and part of the Russell Group of Companies, Dominion has expanded from its beginnings as a concrete structures specialist to now employ more than 200 people and operate five divisions covering the following types of works:

  • Commercial construction, North and South Island
  • Interiors, building conversions, refurbishments,
  • Seismic strengthening and upgrade,
  • Residential construction,
  • Concrete structures,
  • Asbestos,
  • ECI

    In the last four decades we have delivered projects that are diverse in their build types. From streetscapes and rail facilities, to prisons and warehouses, through to luxury high-end apartments and hotels. Our capabilities extend across the entire building process, with our professional project design, project management teams and our site team members. The extensive knowledge and experience that our teams have consistently translates into a ‘value add’ position on every project that we are involved with. Dominion is a respected and constant presence in the construction space offering our clients a high quality, trusted partnership formula that has seen us continue to grow and thrive, regardless of the vagaries of economic conditions.

    Dominion’s contribution to any project extends beyond the physical construction, particularly with capabilities in all areas of project management. Having worked under varying contract types, including Total GMP, Lump Sum/Fixed Price, Cost Plus/Open Book and Collaborative Agreements, Dominion Constructors aim to meet our client needs in terms of a quality build and timely construction, offering potential cost savings and design advice where appropriate. With the diversity of build across multiple sectors, Dominion is recognised for providing total performance with the ability to work in operational areas and in the public sector.

    “At its heart, this is a family business and as such, the culture reflects our family values. We pride ourselves on being down-to-earth, good to deal with and true to our word.

    We are strong, but fair, friendly and supportive of one another. Our approach is hands on and when we say we’ll deliver, we do.”


    -Brett Russell, Managing Director

    The key difference between Dominion Constructors and other large construction firms is that we are builders and we directly employ builders – we don’t just subcontract all of our work out. Our experienced team is locally based and we are able to call upon the significant national resource, with significant plant holding and a large directly employed labour force, to be a truly integrated construction company.

    Specialist technical staff including Design & BIM Managers, Cost Planners, Mechanical, Electrical and Structural Engineers, along with the majority of structural trades (via Stresscrete, Acrow and Russell Gordon Contracting) can be utilised from our wider group employee base. Dominion Constructors delivers satisfactory results for our clients through behaviours such as total team engagement and commitment. Our collaborative delivery model, shows our vast wealth of expertise is being utilised to offer a transparent and robust procurement process and to deliver successful project outcomes. Outcomes in which both our clients and the delivery teams are proud to stand by. Our focus is to foster a strong partnership and relationships with clients, facilitated with quantifiable project goals, a clear definition and understanding of the project scope, an understanding and appropriate allocation of risks, agreement on risk/reward arrangement, and skilled project staff. All of this is underpinned by an uncompromised commitment to communication, which ensures there are ‘no surprises’.

    Through our ISO9001 Quality, ISO14001 Environment, AS/NZS 4801 Health & Safety, Eco Warranty, Master Builder and ACC Tertiary accreditations, Dominion have the systems in place to deliver a quality outcome. We are mindful at every step of our Health & Safety and Environmental obligations.
