Modern life at its finest: D&T Chadwick Builders

Derek Chadwick is no stranger to the building industry. Before immigrating to New Zealand from the UK 12 years ago, he left behind a very successfully established construction firm.



Since arriving on our shores, he and his tightly knit team of builders and tradesmen have gained a sterling reputation in North Canterbury under the name of D & T Chadwick Builders Ltd.

With the motto of ‘no job too small’, D & T Chadwick Builders Ltd’s family business reflects the philosophy of getting it right first time, with plenty of satisfied clients in the greater Canterbury area. Able to undertake any construction job, their expertise ranges include home renovations, relocating homes, private new home builds and even light commercial work. Also included in their résumé are earthquake repairs and insurance repairs for VERO and AMI Insurance.

A recently completed project saw the construction of three modern, stand-alone two-storey townhouses in the heart of the central city at 221 Salisbury Street. These brand-new, modern developments are simple and contemporary dwellings that encapsulate modern life at its finest; a clean and minimalistic open plan living style that has been architecturally designed with practicality and easy living in mind. Their prime location within the four avenues, with the Christchurch CBD and its many delights – cuisine, recreation, entertainment and all the necessary amenities – just a leisurely stroll away, they are the perfect homes for working couples and small families.


Two of the townhouses are made up of three spacious bedrooms, one with a bespoke ensuite, and the other is a two-bedroom, two-ensuite townhouse. Several windows allow for plenty of natural light, fresh air and ultimately a bright, open space which is the canvas for the occupant’s own interior design and decoration. Dark carpets juxtapose the clean lines and light-filled neutral interiors of the living spaces, which have been designed and constructed to tick all the boxes of simple, modern living.

Derek and the team cover every aspect of the construction process; this truly is a one stop shop. When you are ready to pull the trigger on your next big building project, Derek will sit down with you and take you through the process from start to finish. With Derek and the team, you aren’t a mere job number on a spreadsheet.
