What We Do

At DStevens, we believe that good buildings have the power to change the way we live. At home or at work, while travelling, relaxing or being entertained, good buildings bring people together.

We ask the big questions to our clients so we can tailor our services to reflect their lifestyles and support their needs. We understand that building anything is a major investment, it is exciting, and we feel privileged to be a part of that journey.

DStevens has developed over the last 60+ years to focus on a core range of services - Construction, Joinery and Interiors - offering a truly integrated service for Gisborne and the wider Tairawhiti/East Coast region. 



With over 60 years of experience we've learnt that the best way to achieve our vision is to invest in a collaborative briefing process and only work with the best sub-contractors. Our depth and breadth of construction experience is unique in Gisborne and wider New Zealand, with our work spanning civic and community, commercial, education, healthcare, retail, residential, and sports and recreation projects. 

We work closely with our clients, taking the time to identify their unique requirements and using these to determine a high-quality solution. It is an approach that suits our love of diversity.

Everything we do at DStevens is crafted from creativity, quality, practicality and individuality. We can design, manufacture, and install kitchens and bathrooms. Our team is passionate about the connection between good design and functionality. We work with our clients to meet the challenges of an increasingly competitive environment by creating joinery that reflects their lifestyle and supports their needs.

Designing your own kitchen, bathroom, wardrobe or furniture can be stressful. Not to worry, we are more than happy to guide you through our extensive catalogue of specialist hardware, laminates, natural stone and granite, as well as solid timber, melteca and melamine. We work in multi-disciplinary teams that address the continuing integration of interior design and architecture, designing from the inside out to deliver fantastic solutions. Our interiors team are available to offer specialist advice for your next project and can source a wide range of leading appliances to suit your kitchen – including Asko, Miele, Bosch, Fisher & Paykel – and many other major brands.



Design brings people together to help create better ideas and spaces. At DStevens, we create interior environments that engage, empower and inspire the people who inhabit them. Interior Design is a fully integrated service that specialises in the design and implementation of interiors across all building types: living, workplace, retail, hospitality, education and health. 

We begin by understanding the requirements of those who will interact with the space, determining what will best support the way they live and work. We work closely with clients to create an environment that is a true reflection of their function, aesthetic and aspirations. By designing from the inside out we seek to add that immediate, sensory and personalised dimension to each project that can enhance the overall experience of a space. 




When you’re after windows and doors for your home, you want something that looks good and works well. At Rylock® Windows and Doors, these two priorities have always stayed top of mind in all of the aluminium joinery we design. It’s been that way since 1954. 

We understand there are many factors that need to be considered when choosing the right windows and doors, like indoor-outdoor flow, temperature control and sound reduction, safety and security, functionality and style. That is why we are proud to supply the innovative Euroslider®, Eurostacker® and Foldback® Bifold along with a multitude of other window and door options from the Pacific Suite® and Atlantic Suite® through to double glazing, tinting, thermally broken joinery and passive ventilation.
