Our Team

I was hooked as a 10 year old watching a builder build my parent’s deck. As soon as I could, I completed my apprenticeship in Auckland, then headed off to the UK on my OE, working for a company specialising in super-prime residential managing high-end builds in some of London’s most prestigious neighbourhoods. After seven years I moved back home and have been managed larger scale commercial projects until NZ Builders. Building quality is my passion – I enjoy working with people. Managing projects by working with our clients, subcontractors and our team to get things done to the highest standard. Overcoming any challenges to have that satisfaction of looking back at what we have achieved once the work is done. At NZ Builders I am fortunate to work with such a great team that makes this all possible.

In my spare time, I love to be home with my wife and two daughters. Now and then I also love to get out on the water for some fishing and diving or down to the park for a spot of social cricket.

I had my first experience on a building site when I was 16, labouring for a family friend over the school holidays, and I loved it. Over the last 10 years, my position on site has changed, but I am still loving what I do as each day brings a new challenge. For me, getting to work with the team to create our client’s vision, and the satisfaction of knowing you’ve achieved it, is what I am passionate about. I thrive off figuring out the challenges, working through the detail, understanding the process and finding efficiencies. Working with my hands and doing something different most days keeps my job interesting, but most of all, it’s the boys and the ‘can do’ team culture we have at NZ Builders that makes it easy to get up for work on a Monday morning! 

In my spare time, I love to cook for my beautiful wife, family and friends while watching rugby or cricket. When I’m not with them, the outdoors is where you’ll find me, hunting and fishing!

It’s great when you can use your gifts & talents to support such a fantastic team, which is what I’m passionate about as I take care of the financial area. Seeing the company grow & the pride they have for the work they do, striving to exceed client’s expectations with each job no matter how small or large.

Another thing I’m passionate about is family & friends, so you’ll find me spending time with my Children & Grandies, the girls specially love shopping with me, or catching a movie or meal with friends, with the odd adventure from tramping, cycling or canoeing along the way.

As a high school graduate, building was not the original pathway I thought I would take. However, as we all know, things in life don’t always pan out the way you’d think. I walked into building coincidentally and have never looked back! As a foreman, I have the honour of forming a personal relationship with every client, architect, contractor and crew member to create someone’s ‘dream come true’. This is a humble reward and one I prioritise highly in my job! The feeling I get when everyone’s hard work pays off at the end of a project is like the same satisfaction we all got when watching the All Blacks win that 2015 World Cup final! 

As you may be able to tell already, rugby is another huge part of my life. I play for East Coast Bays Rugby Club as a premier grade player. When I’m not having celebratory beers with the lads, I also enjoy all other forms of sport and will not often be seen without any type of ball in hand, whether it be at the beach, park or back yard! The rest of my time is consumed of spending time with my partner, family and friends! – A long drive up the beach in my truck can never go a miss.

I’m passionate about building and enjoy the satisfaction of seeing the end product of our efforts.  I spent the first part of working life in the Automotive Industry and I think it has helped me to apply attention to detail to my work. I also enjoy imparting my knowledge onto the younger members of the team.

In my spare time, I enjoy fishing and horseracing and spending time with family…and the odd cold beer.

I got into building once I completed school and I have never looked back. I love the physical aspect to the job, working out the best and most efficient ways to complete a task and getting it done to a high standard. My satisfaction comes from improving what I am able to achieve every day.

In my spare time I enjoying working on my Nissan Patrol and of course 4WD. Also love to get out on my tinny for a fish with my old man as much as possible!

I came from a family of tradies and DIYer’s and started learning about building at a young age. From there, I realised how rewarding it was, and I enjoyed the practical side of it. Going through school, I knew I wanted to do building as a career and have since developed a real passion for it.

The thing I like about building is I love working outside and being active in my job. No day is the same, and I like the challenge that comes with that, it’s like working out a puzzle – keeps the brain healthy.

I am the youngest of 7 kids and love hanging out with my family and the small army of nieces and nephews that come with them, so family is important to me. I love the outdoors and getting out for a hunt and a fish, and I try and play most sports, so weekends are usually busy!

Building has always interested me as it is such a big part of our everyday lives. I love being able to play a role in pulling off building projects and working in a team to make it happen! With building being such a broad industry, I enjoy just how much there is to learn and improve on.

Outside of building I enjoy the outdoors where you might find me hiking, biking, going for a surf as well as helping in my local church youth group and on the footy field over the winter.

I chose to become a builder because since a young age I have had the passion for building, enjoy problem solving and learning how things are built. My favourite part of the job is the proud feeling you get when the job is completed, stepping back and knowing that I built that.

Outside of work, I enjoy anything water involved especially fishing and hanging out with my mates

Initially, I planned to study as a science teacher, move onto masters, PhD, and eventually become a university lecturer. But things change, and I have now got into building through some mutual connections, and it has worked out pretty well. I am an apprentice for now, but through hard work, I’m aiming to get qualified and eventually move up to foreman or project manager.

My spare time is usually spent working at home, volunteering at church, gaming, hiking or anything else I can find to keep myself busy.

I’ve always loved the satisfaction of completing a project going from start to finish and seeing the purpose for each and every component when building a home. I also love coming across challenges and finding the best way possible to get passed them.

In my spare time, you will most likely find me at the beach, outback on my board getting ready to surf the next set that rolls in. I also love spending time with my local youth group and helping run it in every way I can.

As a kid growing up, I didn’t have a solid idea of what I wanted to do career-wise. I enjoyed seeing my dad progress through his building career, it looked exciting, so I decided to leave school early to get a head start with a connection from my dad. Every day I am given something new to do, and I enjoy learning as much as I can.

In my spare time, I enjoy playing the guitar until my fingers bleed and hanging out with my mates.
