Meet the Joseph Builders Ltd 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 or Victoria will then price your job, and once 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, QS's, clients, subs and other staff to co-ordinate all aspects of job requirements. Caz has spent the last 28 years building or renovating houses, so is familiar with carrying out most trades. Caz is also our magical webmaster.

In her spare time she is building a house (almost done!), at the pottery studio, or looking after her family of ducks, chickens and pet sheep.

Victoria is our Quantity Surveyor. It's Vic's job to price jobs and keep all the construction costs in check by monitoring all incoming costs.

Victoria has a great relationship with local suppliers to give Cantabrians the best job at the best price.


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 both Caz & Richard in their job roles.



Nathan, Chris and Gerard head up our teams as Foremen, and they are joined on site by Carpenters Luke, Ben, Gerard, and our Apprentices Happy, Hamish and Liam (not pictured).

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 rest home renovations, new houses and a wool shed to name a few.
