Justin Norrell is Christchurch born and raised. He loves to build. He’s always loved to build, that’s why he started doing it at age 15! After completing his four-year Carpentry Apprenticeship Justin honed his skills by continuing to work for the Christchurch builder where he served his apprenticeship. In 1992 he started his own company so that he could build the kind of homes he believes everyone who invests in their own home, deserves. Justin is completely hands-on in every project. In his own words, “He’d much rather be on the job than in the office”! (And switched-on administrative support by wife Renee allows him such luxury!)

Justin and his team of qualified craftsmen are passionate, motivated, reliable and enthusiastic about the work they do. They’re constantly looking at new, more efficient ways of getting each project done on time and within budget.
