In 2015, Darren started Fixation Builders. He had one apprentice; they built one house at a time. The business grew—and so did our desire to provide a more complete service to our clients. Stacey came on board as Business Manager, and Pete bought into the business as a Partner, and Project Manager.

We continue to add to our team, helping others to achieve their professional goals. We recognise that a satisfied team with diverse experience, and perspectives can help develop houses that you can envision as your home.


The foundation of all we do at Fixation is centred on great working relationships. Nurturing our team culture, has created a crew of craftspeople that show up committed to giving their best on the site each day. And our commitment to collaborative client relationships delivers a peace of mind that your project is in the hands of people that care.


We understand there's a lot at stake during the building process, so we work hard to continually measure, evaluate, and improve how we do things. Our processes have been refined through years of experience, lessons learned, and client feedback, so that you can enjoy the best build journey possible. 


Each member of our diverse team are viewed as an integral part of the build, and are kept in the know on every detail of each project we undertake. From apprentice to tradesperson, our team feel invested, and understand that their contribution is crucial to the success of the project. 

Darren, Pete and Stacey, of Fixation Builders standing together.


At Fixation Builders, we’ve taken the time to carefully build our team. We ensure our values are in line with our employees, and that we provide a workplace where people are heard, and supported.

We aim to keep a strong team that are all striving towards team, and personal goals - from developing high quality homes, to completing an apprenticeship with us. We’re keen to give our already qualified builders opportunities to up-skill, and improve their craft. We even support people into leadership roles, such as supervisors, and project managing.

We make an effort to keep our team culture strong, and enjoy our work. Our team participates in team-building days off site, regular one on one check ins, and added support to ensure our mental, and physical health as well. This approach facilitates a healthy work/life balance, and as a bonus you’ll gain extra time off with each year you work with us.

We encourage open communication to uphold our reputation for being a dependable company that champions quality building, and a personable, professional, and great place to work.

If this sounds like the sort of company you’d like to be a part of, reach out and let us know! We’re always keeping an eye out for qualified builders and take on at least one new apprentice each year.


Fixation Builders is a growing construction company that specialises in residential high end new builds, renovations, and extensions, in one of the most spectacular locations in the country. We are expanding our team, and have another great opportunity for an experienced, qualified builder to join our ever growing crew. This role could also suit someone recently qualified who is looking to fast track into a Foreman role.

Our small, like minded team is passionate about what they do, and like to make the most of what Queenstown has to offer outside of work. Whether you are local, or have been looking to make the leap and move to Queenstown, we would like to hear from you. Our projects provide a lot of variety, ranging from high end architectural new builds, to renovations, and extensions.
