We’re gutsy and ambitious. We’re down to earth. We’re smart and curious. We are people obsessed. We understand.

Classic is a success story that so far spans 20+ years. A couple of guys with different skills had a shared vision to build homes for Kiwis. They wanted to build better homes with quality and affordability taking centre stage.

Now the third largest residential builder in New Zealand, Classic Builders has built over 5,000 homes – bringing so many home dreams to life.

But we can’t do this alone – we rely on the tenacity of our people, the heart of our business.

Our Quantity Surveying team at our national office in Tauranga are on the hunt for a Quantity Surveyor who has experience working with CostX. You will be our “go-to” person for queries regarding the software, in conjunction with managing the workload and measuring projects.

  • Provide training and support regarding CostX to the wider Quantity Surveying team and work alongside the Procurement department to implement changes and feedback to the system
  • Strive to improve CostX and facilitate improvements where new software release are concerned
