When you work with Kennedy Building, you are in safe hands with Will and Louise looking after you. Will, is a member of both the Master Builders Association and the NZ Certified Builders Association. Louise is part of the Southland Executive team for Master Builders. There aren’t many builders who are members of both associations. Together, we look after our team and our clients, striving to maintain our hard-earned reputation as Southland’s most innovative and trusted builder.
Meet our team
Our competitive advantage is our staff. Without them we couldn’t do what we do so well, which is why we prioritise and invest in our people, to deliver you, our client, a positive experience.
Our builders have a history of stability and success, and a solid reputation for realising homeowners’ aspirations. Our team of 18 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 four years. Blake Mennell was Southland's Apprentice of the Year in 2021, Blakes father Corey Mennell in 2019, Kelvin Haywood in 2018, and Frederick Michael in 2017.
We undergo regular training in the latest building techniques, 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 go above and beyond, and do so with a smile.
