James Solari


After 14 years working for other people I decided it was time to step out on my own and build a business that focussed on my specific areas of expertise. I was fortunate to find a group of talented (and fun) people to work with that share my vision and deliver great results for our clients.

I have unique experience in multi-unit residential builds as a result of my time at Woodhead in Australia. I believe that New Zealand’s market it still relatively immature. As our population grows we need to intensify our housing solutions. But we need to do it in a way that fosters communities, creates safe and healthy living environments and enables people to thrive.

Having said that, my passion and expertise is not limited to multi-unit solutions. I love to work on stand-alone houses, commercial and hospitality solutions. I’m excited about exploring and balancing the cross-overs between how we live, work and play.

ADVICE: Own your projects, whether individually on a small project, or as part of a team on something larger, buy into it and know it inside out.
