The Joseph Builders team
Meet the people that will turn your building ideas into reality.
Richard and Linda are our fearless leaders, both come from building families so are well versed in builders speak.
Richard is a Master Builder, an accolade that isn't given out lightly, and a Licensed Building Practitioner (Carpentry), which ensues that all work is done to a high standard. When he isn't in the office you can generally find him with a fishing rod in his hand. Linda is hands on as well, handling accounts, payroll and media for Joseph Builders Ltd.
Tristan is our Project Manager. He is a qualfied carpenter and LBP with many years experience in the industry.
Once you have contacted Joseph Builders with an enquiry, Tristan will follow up with you to arrange a site visit to assess the job. Tristan will then co-ordinate to price your job request, and once the job is confirmed he will then manage the job from start to finish to make sure everything runs as smoothly as possible.
Carolyn (also known as Caz) is our Projects Co-Ordinator. She liaises with the PM, carries out the majority of our QS work, creates new concept house designs, and corresponds with clients, subs and other staff to co-ordinate all aspects of job requirements.
Caz has spent the last 30 years building or renovating houses, so is familiar with carrying out most trades. Caz is also our magical webmaster.
Rae works in our accounts department, and she is usually your first point of contact when you ring Joseph Builders.
Rae also deals with most of our health and safety, and assists Caz with all the job costings to help keep the job on track and on budget.
Melissa is our admin assistant and assists Caz, Tristan and Richard in day to day tasks. Mel is in contact with our clients regularly to make sure they are up to date and that any queries are answered. She also requests quotes from subcontractors and looks after our social media.
Nathan, Ben and Connor head up our teams as Foremen, and they are joined on site by Carpenters Luke and Happy, Apprentices Liam and Barry and Labourer Andy.
Their work can include everything from new house builds and new classrooms, to extensions, renovations, insurance repairs and rural farm sheds.
Their current work includes new houses, extensions, renovations, repairs, farm buildings and commercial works to name a few.
Joseph Builders Ltd are also proud to be a yearly sponsor of Ashburton Christmas in the Park in years that it is held. This event is held in the Ashburton Domain and is usually a highlight of the Ashburton Christmas celebrations.
We also sponsor the Hakatere Ceramics & Pottery annual exhibition, staff members Caz and Rae are both active members.
As Registered Master Builders we often enter their House of the Year awards, and have won a number of awards throughout the years.
