Joseph Builders are involved with new build and renovation/refurbishment/repair work on many commercial buildings. In Christchurch, Ashburton and Canterbury we strengthen and rebuild damaged buildings, encompassing design, engineering, geotechnical reports, consents and construction. We also have the ability to make existing buildings accessibility compliant. We work closely with building owners, insurance companies if involved, and councils to achieve the desired outcome.

We are accredited with Project Management companies such as Morgans and EQR. We also build new, having completed a number of different projects including a number of woolsheds, commercial size Formsteel sheds, new classrooms for the Ashburton Christian School, the Rakaia Gorge, Alford Forest, Mt Somers and Hinds Fire sheds and Argyle Park changing rooms.

We are able to offer a full design service if starting from scratch, and we are also pleased to be working alongside Formsteel Technologies to offer steel frame buildings as well as timber frame builds.

If you are wanting more information, please contact us to arrange a meeting.
