Kennedy Building, formerly Kennedy Brothers Building started up in 2008 by Will with his brother Andrew. In 2018, Andrew decided to step back from the business, but stayed on as a Contractor. You know you are in safe hands, with Will looking after you, as he is a member of both the Master Builders Association and the NZ Certified Builders Association. There are not many builders that are members of both associations.
Louise, Will's partner (and more often than not - the boss) utilises her gold mining technology background, her University degree in Commerce, and the "multi-tasking extraordinaire" skills that come from chasing around their 3 young boys Billy, Harry and Jonty. Lou works tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure the building process runs as smooth as possible, keeping the team up to date with the latest technology, automating the admin and making sure we all achieve that vital work/life balance.
MEET OUR TEAM
Our builders have a history of stability and success and a solid reputation for realising homeowners’ aspirations. Our team of 17 builders is made up of highly capable and friendly lads who apply attention to detail on every project.
We're proud of our team. Our apprentices have won the NZCB Apprentice of the Year regional competition for the past three years. Corey Mennell was Southland's Apprentice of the Year in 2019, Kelvin Haywood in 2018 and Frederick Michael in 2017.
We undergo regular training in the latest building techniques and are up to speed with industry developments and regulatory requirements. We have strong ties with local authorities and educational institutes to ensure a smooth, stress-free building experience, with minimal paperwork!
We're lucky to have committed and talented builders who always go above and beyond and do so with a smile.
