Your renovation finished exactly as you pictured it

Isn’t it funny how sometimes things don’t turn out like you pictured? Until now, investing money on your major renovation was scary because you could only try and visualise how your refurbished space might look and feel – but not anymore. Now, Prima Build can walk you through a virtual reality tour of your future space before you renovate.

No more anxiety. Just certainty. Choose your colours with ease. Select your fittings and fixtures with confidence. Avoid budget blowouts.


At Prima Build, we understand that the kitchen is the soul of your home. The focus of your family life. The place everybody sees and the space where home buyers spend the most time. Not only can Prima Build help you get it just right with 3D virtual reality to inform your decision making, we will guide you through your selection of high quality, guaranteed fittings and fixtures. Let Prima Build take you through our process for creating your perfect kitchen.


We New Zealanders love our bathrooms. The bathroom is a place where you can just be you – a place of peace, privacy and calm. You’ll want your bathroom to be yours – not somebody else’s vision. Prima Build will work alongside you to create a bathroom that you love – perfectly built with easy flow, stylish and luxurious.

Whatever your vision, Prima build can help you design it, create and live it.


The magic of fully renovating your home is that finally you get to make it yours. Exactly the way you want it to look and feel. A space that works for you and your family. A space that is uniquely ‘you and yours’. Prima Build is also unique. The perfect partnership of a wife and husband team, Prima Build’s Livia and Darren will:

  • Consult with you.
  • Take you on a virtual reality tour of exactly how your future space will look.
  • Give you a choice of design finishes.
  • Complete your picture-perfect renovation with minimal fuss.

"Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value. From the start of the process, Livia and Darren listened to our requirements and designed not only the bathrooms we had envisaged but ensured they were functional as well as beautiful. They bought our dated bathrooms into this century giving us rooms that we will proudly live with for decades to come. Livia’s design and computer skills gave us the ability to see exactly what was achievable. Darren is the definition of a perfectionist. He was immaculate in detail construction and installation. He was respectful of our need to live in the home while the building was undertaken and ensured no mess was left at the end of each workday. All the tradesmen that Darren employed on our behalf were true craftsmen, all taking pride in the work they were providing. Darren managed the process brilliantly and even though we were working under difficult conditions with deliveries delayed. He made sure that everything was ready in time for the completion of the project. We loved having Darren with us for the 3 months the renovation of our main and ensuite took to complete. We absolutely love both rooms and have no complaints at all. We highly recommend Prima Build to anyone with renovation requirements. Both Livia and Darren are truly lovely people who provide quality workmanship in a completely professional manner."

Birkenhead Renovation

"You have done such an amazing job with our bungalow renovation; we are so happy with it and it is just how we hoped and imagined it would be. We could never have thought a renovation could be this stress-free and we put that down to your careful planning and consistently keeping us informed. We have found you to be meticulous, working to a very high standard, and expecting the same from all your trades. We felt you showed pride in your workmanship, and this is reflected in the quality of the build. We also appreciated how tidy you left our house each day as it is not easy living in a house with two small children while renovations are going on. It has been so great working with you and Livia on this project, and we feel a bit sad that we won't be seeing you around anymore. All the best for your future projects-we have been and will continue to recommend you to all our friends and family."

Parnell Penthouse Ensuite

"I recently decided to have my large ensuite bathroom renovated-after checking out a few people and with recommendations decided on Darren and his wife Livia Warren the owners of Prima Build. My dealings with them from the first appointment were very professional and friendly and with Darren as a Master Builder and Livia as an interior consultant, the whole process went very smoothly. The tradesmen that Darren uses were also top notch-as I live in an apartment block, I did have to consider my neighbors and had absolutely no complaints. Darren is a very tidy measured person and I was thrilled with the outcome-on time on budget and would highly recommend them to anyone considering a renovation."

Drury Project

"Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value. Livia and Darren, you’ve completely transformed our home from dark and dated to fresh, bright, functional, and modern and become great friends in the process. We absolutely love our new bathrooms and our bright functional new kitchen. The whole process was stress-free. Livia took a lot of time consulting with us over the design and materials and her colour/texture recommendations were outstanding. It was great to be able to view what the final outcome would look like during the planning stage. Darren managed every aspect of the project from start to finish right through to the immaculate final clean. He has great relationships with his tradespeople and chooses only the best, he cleans up at the end of every day and ensures there is not too much disruption during the project. He is an absolute perfectionist who works to the highest standards. I couldn't recommend them highly enough and if I have any further projects, they will be the only ones I'd consider. They may be a little more expensive than some others, but it's worth every dollar. You can't go wrong using Prima Build for your next project."
