The Team

Matt’s main role is to ensure the team delivers the goods for his clients. He is very fortunate to be an ‘on tools boss’ which allows him to ensure the detail is kept razor sharp and on point.

Amanda Kerley – Project Manager

Behind every successful building company is a woman calling the shots. We have made the mistake of challenging this from time to time, unfortunately for us she was right in most of the cases.

Amanda comes from a Legal background being a qualified Legal Executive and has run her own successful businesses from a young age. She tracks money in and the money out on our projects and doesn’t miss a beat.

Amanda is also about to complete her Building Apprenticeship to become qualified at that point she will probably take over the business and fire me!

Taine Brown – Building Apprentice

Taine started working for us in 2017, from school he works on farms in Reporoa before moving to Hamilton to pursue and building career. Outside of building Taine loves to hunt pretty much anything and is in charge of keeping the boss’s freezers full of wild venison and pork!
