Graeme Leggatt - Director

Graeme supervises a team of qualified builders. His priority is on 'more than meeting client expectation' all the way through the building process. Building quality homes that delight his clients brings Graeme great satisfaction and he is prepared to put the time in to ensure this is the outcome.......always. Graeme is a Registered Master Builder & holds a site 2 LBP license.


In 2009 we bought an almost complete “Kiwi” Lockwood from Graeme Leggatt. We asked Graeme to finish the house and organize its move and re-siting.

This Graeme did in a most professional manner. To save time he did as much of the finishing before the move as possible. The new site was sloping so required some tricky foundations. Graeme did all of the negotiating required with the Far North District Council saving us from considerable stress.
Decks and a ramp were also built.

Graeme has a good relationship with his subcontractors and the builders who work for him.

Graeme’s “cool, calm and collected” manner increased our confidence in his work. He kept us right up to date and was very efficient in sorting out problems or queries from us.

Should we decide on another similar project we would be approaching Graeme first and thoroughly recommend him to any prospective clients.
