Licensed Building Practitioners

As a youngster Stan Leenders was always designing or building structures, so it’s a natural progression that he would one day run his own construction company.

A keen mountain-biker, he began by designing and building wooden jumps and ramps as a teenager on the family farm. Then it was a paintball course with bunkers and wooden hideouts that became a successful side business – a sign of things to come.

The next step was a building apprenticeship with an award-winning building company. “I enjoyed learning the full range of building skills and gained a good insight into the industry.”

After qualifying and working as a leading hand with a residential building company, Stan started his own company, Lockhart Construction, a building company centred around customer experience.

The Lockhart Construction point of difference is that, as well as providing top building workmanship, we prioritise ensuring that the customer has a positive experience throughout the build.

“We have a set of values that we follow and a strong process for how we work with clients. We listen, communicate well, and appreciate that our customers have put their trust in us,” says Stan.

Lockhart Construction are Licensed Building Practitioners and approved New Zealand Certified Builders. Our team includes four qualified builders experienced in all facets of building and renovations, and one apprentice.

Our top values are customer care and going the extra distance to complete a quality job that meets customer expectations. “We really love the satisfaction of completing the job well and knowing that our customer is happy with the result.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should we get a pre-concept estimate cost for our building project?

It is important to talk with a builder about your project to get a cost estimate before plans are drawn up and making resource consent applications. This provides a realistic budget for the project, prevents future cost overruns and having to scale back the project later in the process.

How much should we budget for variations and additions to our renovation?

Additions and variations are common in building projects and can add significant costs. At Lockhart Construction we’ve devised a way to protect our clients from expensive additions. Our contracts pre-set the variation charge with an agreed margin. This ensures there are no expensive surprises for our clients.

Why should we consider Lockhart Construction for our build?

We are an experienced building team known for our quality workmanship and take a customer-centred approach to bringing your dreams to life. Our values revolve around customer care, and we back this up with good communication and efficient processes to support your project.
