Hi, I’m Hai Nguyen, founder of Newin Building Estimating Services, and that’s what I’ll help you do – cost your building projects to ultimately ensure it gets completed to budget and without any cost surprises.
We are a property and construction advisory firm specialising in Construction Cost Estimate Reports, Quantity Surveying, and Cost Management services across Wellington and Lower Hutt NZ.
We work with domestic, commercial, and industrial builders, home-owners, architects, and developers at various phases: prior to construction, during construction, and post-construction.
Over the years we’ve seen clients get caught out with poor project cost tracking systems, inaccurate costings, or simply “paying too much”, sadly leaving many financially strained.
We have a proven risk management system and industry track record for addressing all these.
Unlike other agencies, we don’t use cost guides as we don’t find them reliable. We believe in digging much deeper to give you concrete data and rates, meaning you’ll feel secure with your budgets and the decisions you make.

Utilising a construction estimator for the whole project cycle is highly beneficial for the following reasons:
Understanding our Building Cost Estimate process in Lower Hutt Wellington
Our expertise in the Lower Hutt and Wellington New Zealand market allows us to rate up our estimates based on the project’s geographical location. Every construction cost estimate we produce is therefore based on real local data, and to the requirements of your specific building project.
As leading industry building and construction estimators we have in-depth knowledge of the Lower Hutt and Wellington markets. We can estimate the structural / foundation likely costs and can be accurate within 15% of actual costs once the full project documentation is developed. This will give you confidence in either going ahead with the current design or, modifying it to suit budget requirements.
There is an inherent danger in providing a typical square meter rate for the intended building project. Factors such as foundation material, site access, specified materials, local engineering, and building compliance requirements can blow out your budget quickly.
As construction estimators, we would study the project construction costings as a whole and recommend alternative materials and structures that you can use to reduce building costs as much as possible AND most importantly, without compromising on the construction design or quality.
