We were absolutely thrilled to have won Gold and Local Category Winner in our category at the 2015 Registered Master Builders House of the Year awards.

This year we have been working on a number of bespoke builds with a variety of budgets. This includes two high country holiday homes, a house overlooking Lyttleton harbour and a house overlooking the city.

Our commercial works have included a new fire shed at Hinds and a complete redevelopment of a respite care wing.
