To complete your building project to the highest standard possible; providing excellent service and attention to detail.

What We Do

Ardent Building Developments serves Hamilton and the greater Waikato, specialising in high quality new residential homes and apartments. We can also do renovations and extensions on your existing home. Steve and Rach Dixon head up the company, overseeing a dedicated team of employees. We use a great team of specialised sub-contractors (electricians, plumbers etc) on our jobs – because of this we can offer you competitive pricing no matter how big or small your job is. We are committed to combining excellent workmanship with great communication in order to give you the best possible service.


Steve Dixon is the owner/director of the company and is involved in all aspects of each job, from project management to hands-on building work. Steve has been building since 1996 and has owned and run his own company since 2004.
