Our History

Following the success of the first two areas, Palms and Greens, another block of neighbouring land to the north was acquired. Sovereign Lakes, shares it’s boundary with 74 hectares of stunning lake and reserve and to enhance this beautiful area even more and to make it as user friendly as possible a carefully designed and crafted boardwalk is currently under construction, all part of our commitment to quality and sustainability.

Sovereign Lakes, with its nearly 400 sections, will be home to hundreds of families and with its lake frontage and boardwalks it will be that peaceful and relaxing location that we all aspired to.


The Companies Behind Sovereign Palms

Two well-established locally owned and operated companies joined forces to create sovereign palms. Residential development experts Suburban Estates Ltd partnered with KB Contracting & Quarries Ltd, the latter having 40 years of experience in civil construction.

Suburban Estates has created more than 60 individual, prestigious and successful subdivisions throughout New Zealand since 1957, building up a positive reputation in the process.

The company’s philosophy is to acquire bare land in premium positions, and then transform it into visually appealing, fully-serviced residential communities that are designed to last.

Partner KB Contracting & Quarries Ltd has wide-ranging experience in civil construction throughout Canterbury and Nelson.  A small commercial car park, new urban road construction or an airport runway – all are within its capabilities

KB Contracting & Quarries Ltd was awarded Canterbury Contractor of the year in 2007, and accolade that testifies to the delivery of a fine service that results in a high level of satisfaction from clients.

Commitment to environmental concerns, so that future generations of New Zealanders continue to enjoy a quality Kiwi lifestyle, is an ongoing priority.
