The qualified team were hand-picked by James and have undertaken advanced, up-to-date training. Ensuring a high standard of workmanship throughout every project is vital, James says. “Our crews are experienced across all areas and we work with trusted architects, engineers and sub-contractors to provide consistency and high-quality craftmanship to every project.”
One of Brownie Construction’s up-and-coming projects includes a stunning residential home overlooking Coronet Peak in Queenstown, currently in design stage. “Situated at the end of a 100m driveway, the north-facing four-bedroom home will feature a loft and a two-storey garage, cedar cladding, an exposed schist chimney, and polished concrete floors throughout – with underfloor heating.”

The team has also begun work on a new two-storey home on the Cashmere Hills in Christchurch. Both projects have a focus on a ‘passive living’ style, with the use of high-performance structural insulated panels. Super-insulated and airtight, the New Zealand Made Smart Structural Insulation Panels (NZSIP) help build next-generation, healthy, energy-efficient homes. “This new technology is becoming more common, while being more environmentally friendly, you are also saving money in the long-term.”
From design and pricing to completion and landscaping, Brownie Construction provides the complete package, along with excellent project management.

Townhouses to tempt: Queenstown’s Coronet Grove is set to be a pleasing addition to Brownie Construction’s portfolio of work

A new development of eight exceptional townhouses is well underway in Queenstown. Located in Arthurs Point, Coronet Grove is nestled in a quiet, relaxed village occupied by nature lovers and peace-and-quiet keepers.

Coronet Peak is a 15-minute drive away, the Shotover Jet is just around the corner and there are plenty of walking and biking trails, making Coronet Grove perfect for adventure lovers.
Contracted to build the first stage of Coronet Grove, Brownie Construction is an accomplished and respected building company, which covers Central Otago and Canterbury. A high standard of workmanship and professionalism has seen Blueview Developments also engage the construction firm for stage 2, which is expected to begin in June.
James Brownie, the Managing Director of Brownie Construction, is delighted to be a part of this development with his professional and dedicated staff delivering a high-quality block of units. “We are devoted with our many projects currently in progress in Queenstown and determined to maintain our high standard of workmanship,” James Brownie says.
Built in three stages, these premium spec, two-storey homes are 170sqm each and feature three bedrooms, two bathrooms and an open plan living and dining area which flows easily outdoors.
Thoughtfully planned by Blueview Developments Ltd, Project Manager James Flett says the carefully considered design will appeal to buyers. “The Coronet Grove zoning includes Visitor Accommodation, allowing the homes to be owner occupied, or rented out as short-stay accommodation,” he says.

Brownie Construction“This provides very attractive investment returns for purchasers looking to enter or expand in the Queenstown market.”
As the complex is private and tranquil, it offers a welcome escape from city life. “These homes have been specifically designed for skiers looking to enjoy Coronet Peak during the day, dine in Queenstown through the evening before relaxing in the quietness that Arthurs Point provides,” James Flett says.
Three homes in the development remain available to purchase, for more information you can contact Warwick and Megan Osborne at Harcourts 03-441 0779,
