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 and his partner Louise. Will is both a NZCB approved builder, and a member of the Master Builders Association, not many builders are members of both associations. Will works closely with you the client, while Louise utilising her experience from a past life as a Mining Technology Consultant works behind the scenes to make all of that as seamless 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 while raising their three young sons.
