Kennedy Building, formerly Kennedy Brothers Building, was founded in 2008 by brothers, Will and Andrew Kennedy in Southland’s beachside suburb of Riverton. In 2018, Andrew decided to step back from the business which is now headed by Will, with his partner Louise by his side. Will is an NZCB approved builder - the only builder association in New Zealand with strict entry criteria where the minimum entry requirement for all members is a recognised industry trade qualification. Will takes care of the operation, dealing with suppliers, project planning, cost control, and working closely with you the client. Louise works behind the scenes to make all of that as seamless as possible, keeping the team up to date with the latest technology by implementing digital solutions, automating the admin and making sure we all achieve that vital work/life balance.
