What do removal, demolition, and rebuild mean?

Removal, demolition, and rebuilding by a qualified team that has a well-organised process of replacing an existing building with a new one on the same site. It involves removing or demolishing the old structure and clearing the site for construction. Then, a new home is built according to the owner’s specifications and preferences (subject to planning conditions).

Many people find that their homes no longer meet their needs as their life circumstances change. They may need more or less space, more comfort, or more functionality. For example, they may want to accommodate a growing family, host guests, entertain friends, work from home, or enjoy their retirement.

Some people choose to renovate their homes, but this can be expensive and disruptive. Renovating can involve dealing with hidden costs, unexpected delays, council approvals, and living in a construction zone. The existing layout and condition of the home can also limit this.

Others choose to sell their homes and buy new ones, but this can be stressful and time-consuming. Selling and buying can involve paying commissions, fees, taxes, and moving costs. It can also mean leaving behind a familiar neighbourhood, community, and lifestyle.

However, many Kiwi families opt for removal, demolition, and rebuilding. This option allows you to design and build a new home that suits your needs and preferences while staying in the same location you love. You can also benefit from increased value, energy efficiency, and modern features. You can customise your home to your taste, budget, and lifestyle. You can also enjoy a hassle-free process with a fixed-price contract, a guaranteed completion date, and a 10-year warranty. If you want a home that fits your future lifestyle, why not consider removal, demolition, and rebuilding? Give us a call, and we can help you through this process.

Why consider removal, demolition, and rebuild at the current site?

Location and Familiarity

If you love your neighbourhood, you might not want to leave it for a different area. You might have a strong attachment to the place, the views, the amenities, the schools and the services that you and your family enjoy. Moving to a new location might mean losing some of these benefits and having to adjust to a different environment. That is why building a new home on your current site could be a good option for you. You can design your new home to suit your needs and preferences while staying in the area you know and love.

A Possible Source of Income

If you want to increase your wealth and decrease your maintenance expenses, demolishing and rebuilding your property might be the way to go. By doing this, you could subdivide your land and create multiple new homes, depending on the size of your backyard. This would allow you to lead a low-maintenance lifestyle while generating income from renting or selling the additional properties.

Increased Land Value

The land value is the amount your property would sell for if it had no buildings or improvements. It is determined by factors such as location, size, shape, zoning, and demand.

If you compare your current Government Valuation with the previous one, you may notice that the land value has increased significantly while the dwelling value has not. This means that your house is not adding much value to your property and may even be reducing it if it is in poor condition or outdated.

Depending on how long you have owned your property and how much you have paid off your mortgage, you may have built up a lot of equity in your land. Equity is the difference between the market value of your property and the amount you owe on it.

By removing, demolishing, and rebuilding your house, you can take advantage of your land value and equity to create a modern, comfortable, and energy-efficient home that suits your needs and preferences. You can also increase the market value of your property and potentially make a profit if you decide to sell it in the future.

Renovating can be a challenging task

Renovating an existing house can be costly, and combining new and old elements may not always blend seamlessly. Achieving a cohesive and functional end result can be a challenge. Additionally, while some parts of your home may be updated, modernised, and in good condition, other portions may have outdated or deteriorating features. Opting for a remove/demolish and rebuild approach could provide a more affordable solution to create the exact home you desire.

Improve efficiency, safety & technology

A new build can integrate the latest smart home technologies, ensuring your home is equipped with modern conveniences and energy-saving devices. Older homes might not meet current safety standards or energy efficiency regulations. Demolishing and rebuilding allow you to create a safer and more environmentally friendly home.

Engaging with a reputable building company like EBUILD or an experienced architect can help you make an informed decision based on your unique circumstances and preferences.

Advantages of dividing land into smaller sections

Backyard Subdivide

One of the most common ways to subdivide involves a simple action of turning a section into two lots. This results in one house being placed behind the other, with the rear house requiring driveway access beside the front house.


Developing road frontage for each home is becoming a popular trend. If you have a large property that can be divided into two, consider building a duplex, as it can be cost-effective and yield high returns. Many people have even been able to pay off their entire mortgage through this option.


EBUILD is a company that specialises in constructing terraced developments, which is ideal for individuals with a bigger land block. If you happen to own a larger block of land and the zoning regulations are favourable, investing in a multi-unit development could result in significant rewards.

Side by Side

Our side by side developments allow each home to have its own separate space while still maintaining a cohesive street presence. This makes them highly appealing to potential buyers. Even on narrow sites, our EBUILD team can assist you in maximizing the space to create a beautiful and functional development.
