Dominion Constructors is a family-owned construction company, which has been trading for over 40 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 four divisions:

  • Main contractor
  • Interior fit-outs
  • Residential construction; and
  • Concrete structures.

In the last four decades we have delivered projects ranging in diversity 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 – from professional project management to carpentry. The extensive knowledge and experience of our team means we can add valuable input into every project we are involved in.

Dominion has been a trusted, constant presence in the construction space offering 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 a project extends beyond the physical construction, 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 aims to meet client needs in terms of quality and timely construction, offering potential cost savings and design advice where appropriate. With diversity across all sectors, Dominion is recognised for providing total performance with the ability to work in operational areas and the public sector.

“At its heart, this is a family business and, as such, its culture reflects family values. We pride ourselves on being down-to-earth, good to deal with and true to our word.
We’re 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 Dominion offers from 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 resources of a truly integrated construction company, with significant plant holdings and a large directly employed labour force. Specialist technical staff including Design & BIM Managers, Cost Planners, Mechanical, Electrical Engineers and Structural Engineers, along with the majority of structural trades (via Stresscrete, Acrow and Russell Gordon Contracting) can be called upon from our wider group employee base.

Dominion delivers for our clients through total team engagement and commitment. Our collaborative delivery model means a vast wealth of expertise is on hand within the company and we aim to deliver project outcomes that both our clients and the team are proud to stand by. Further, we offer transparent and robust procurement processes to deliver best possible value to the project.

Our focus is to foster strong partnership relationships with clients, facilitated via 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 to ensure ‘no surprises’.

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