We specialise in the construction of high-quality residential and commercial subdivisions South Island-wide.

Successful subdivision construction and development requires extensive experience in bulk earthworks and construction of sustainable infrastructure. We’ve delivered everything from simple lots to master-planned communities across some of the South Island’s most challenging urban, and rural locations. Major projects include: Fletcher Living Superlots Christchurch Central, Beach Grove Development in Kaiapoi, Station Bay Tekapo, Mackenzie Park Development Twizel, Merino Downs Twizel, and Stella Park Wanaka.

Clients across New Zealand choose Paul Smith Earthmoving for subdivisions, because we offer…

100% Client Commitment
We demonstrate 100% commitment through fully compliant, cost-effective, and timely subdivisions that meet New Zealand’s building and drainage standards. Our early stage contractor involvement, on-behalf consent applications, Quality Management System, extensive insurances, and first-rate communication channels are designed for end-to-end client satisfaction. Whether you require indicative pricing for a small-scale project, or a QS-based (quantity-based) quote for a large-scale development, we’ll design a solution to suit.

Innovative Solutions
All subdivision projects excel through our end-to-end contractor involvement, complex problem-solving skills, and highly flexible resourcing. We utilise plans to generate asBuilt visuals to monitor project progress at every stage. With state-of-the-art GPS technologies, we execute to the millimetre. Our modern fleet and plant includes 1 ton diggers, 65 ton excavators, loaders, bulldozers, scrapers, and dump trucks, all serviced by our in-house mechanical engineers. As a single-point solution provider, we offer drainage, landscape, and road construction too.

Top Quality Teamwork
We invest heavily in our people to ensure we maintain a high-performing team. Our hands-on company directors lead by example with over 60 years of civil construction experience, while our dedicated project and site managers maximise all resources to ensure exceptional results. With more than 180 highly skilled construction specialists, including labourers, drain layers, mechanics, engineers, quantity surveyors, and financial managers, we deliver to the highest industry standards.

Comprehensive Health & Safety
Our active Health and Safety Team works on every subdivision project to guarantee total staff engagement and continuous company-wide safety improvements. We uphold comprehensive health and safety practices, including daily safety meetings, Site Specific Safety Plans, environmental management, and Safe Work Method Statements. With regular internal and external site audits, we’re committed to zero-harm projects.

Dedicated Project Delivery
Delivery with integrity is the key to our longevity in the civil construction industry. From start-to-finish, we maximise resources via real-time cost-tracking with Workbench™ and our daily company-wide progress reports keep everything on track. As our client, you’ll benefit from consistent communication, transparent reporting (including staff timesheets and deliveries), and on-site meetings by request.

Rest assured, we know what it takes to lay the foundation for the future. For a dedicated construction team with a proven track record in delivering top-quality subdivisions, contact Paul Smith Earthmoving.

“Avlis Ltd has worked with Paul Smith on five projects over the last 15 years. The latest of those projects is currently in the process of sign-off by the Mackenzie District Council. That project covered 39 sections in Twizel and was completed on time and to budget, which is a credit to Mark Shaw and his Team. The MDC inspection process went well with no material remedial work required. Thank you to the Paul Smith Team for your efforts.”
