About Us

Murray was born and raised on a sheep farm, in South Taranaki so he knows the meaning of hard work.

He started his apprenticeship in brick and blocklaying in New Plymouth when he was 17 years old where his employer had a contact with Housing New Zealand so was involved in bricklaying for state housing.  They also worked with individual builders on residential properties and did a lot of commercial block work.

After Murray completed his apprenticeship he went farming for 10 years while doing bricklaying on the side.  He decided to stop farming and start his own bricklaying business in South Taranaki where he employed 3 or 4 guys to work with him.

In 1993 he moved up to Hamilton and worked on his own for a while before employing a labourer and since then the business has continued to grow.  He now has 3 full-time staff and also employs other contractors from time to time.

Murray says he really enjoys his job, he finds it very satisfying creating something, watching it start to develop over a few days and then seeing the finished product.

Murray is married to Denyse and they live on a lifestyle block just out of Hamilton with their youngesttwo children aged 7 and 8.  The family loves being able to have many animals on their lifestyle block.  Denyse helps Murray in the administration side of the business and has a background working in law offices.

As a family they are very involved in water sports especially water skiing. Murray learned to water ski when he was 7 years old and is now a lifetime member of the barefoot skiing club.  They spend a lot of time skiing at Lake Karapiro.
