your new place

built just for you

your place building co.

Your Place Building Co is a building company based in Upper Hutt. The company is managed by Josh Chapman. Josh started his career in business at a young age. He was placed in charge of the local Mcdonalds managing over 70 staff at the age of 19. After this, Josh purchased a local restaurant that was about to close its doors. Josh ran this restaurant successfully whilst also undertaking a building apprenticeship. In 2015 Josh partnered with Kiwi Homes and oversaw the construction of over 28 builds.

Last year Josh took a year off work to build his family home before starting Your Place Building Co. At YPB we don’t just build houses.

Here at YPB we realise this and want to provide a service that minimises the stress of building. We want you to be able to focus on the fun parts of the building process. YPB is dedicated to helping you every step of the way through the building process. We believe building should be a memorable and rewarding experience and we are here to make that happen.

Values we hold highly here at YPB are clear communication and transparency. We will keep you informed on the building process and timelines as much as possible. We charge rates that are fair, that we’d be happy to pay ourselves. We also only use products we would use in our own homes.

We only use qualified tradesmen we can trust. We will create a product that will stand the test of time.

Our approach is to meet with you on site, to talk about your needs, style and budget.  We then take that information and insert it into a predetermined design guide. We then balance the cost of your build against your visions. We have hands-on experience as well as business expertise to deliver your dream home. So if you’re thinking about building get in touch today.
