Covid 19 announcement from Urban Homes


With New Zealand in lockdown in response to COVID-19, Urban Homes, one of the leading builders in Hamilton, have taken a rather creative digital approach to be connected with their customers with what they have called “Designing your homes from ours” and the Urban Homes “Build a Fort” competition for families across New Zealand.

Read on to see what Urban Homes have to say about the lockdown to customers and what it means for them.

What this means for us

As soon as the Government lifted New Zealand’s COVID-19 Alert Level from 2 to 3 and advised it would be raising this again to Level 4, the Urban Homes’ senior leadership team leapt into action. We made sure to be as prepared as possible, adjusting where we could, and closing where we must.

Unfortunately, this means our offices and show homes are temporarily closed. All active building sites have been halted and secured until the Government lockdown is over.

Thankfully, we are flexible enough to still operate, and while not considered an essential service, a large portion of our staff and business activities are still running, albeit in isolation.

What this means for you

Why not tour our show homes like never before? Thanks to the wonders of technology, and some rather smart individuals, we’ve been able to digitally recreate our Rivercove and Pukekura show homes in (almost) their full glory. Take a guided virtual tour through our award-winning Hamilton show home from the comfort of yours.

We are continuing to offer our full design package to those looking for their next custom-build home. For inspiration during the lockdown, explore our Inspiration Plan and Gallery Book or our latest Look Book, then, get in touch with one of our talented consultants and architectural designers. This includes all design, pricing and selection stages for you home.

Our challenge to you

While we can’t build outside during these tough times, we welcome you to build inside with our Urban Homes Build a Fort competition. Get your children involved, or leave it to the adults, but join in the fun as we try to make these four weeks as enjoyable as possible.

We understand these are challenging times for everyone, but we are in this together. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with one of our team.
