HISTORY – Our Building Story

Cambridge Homes was just a twinkle in the eye of Sepp Santner, when he moved to NZ from Austria, in late 1953. In 1956 Sepp started Santner Construction Ltd and became a founding member of Master Builders in the Waikato in 1965. He was instrumental in building schools throughout NZ as well as building houses for Housing Corp and high-end homes throughout the Waikato. Peter was the first of his five children to be born, 3 sisters came in between with Tim rounding out the troop. Both boys were inspired by their father to build. It wasn’t long before they were both working in the family business, being instilled with the integrity and values that are the foundations of Cambridge Homes today. “A crooked plank of wood costs as much as a straight one, so we are hand picking every single plank,” was just one of Sepp’s pearls of wisdom. It is now 20 years since Cambridge Homes was founded, and just like the straight planks of wood, Tim and Peter have selected a great team of highly talented individuals to uphold and follow through with these core beliefs and values. Their pride and passion for building beautiful, premium homes and taking their clients through every step of the process is as present today as it was in the Santner household 60 years ago.
