About Cain Built Ltd

BUILDING OUR FOUNDATIONS.

Cain built Ltd. was founded in late 2014. Having worked for building companies for nine years, I decided the time was right for the next challenge – establishing my own business.

Over the past 11 years, I really have nearly seen it all: renovations, top-end new builds, alterations, extensions, re-clads, re-builds and commercial work. This gives my team a competitive edge when it comes to approaching your next project, as there isn’t much we haven’t come across. In particular, renovations are something that we thoroughly enjoy. Yes it’s dirty work, but it’s also extremely rewarding turning a house that’s essentially a crude stone into a polished diamond.

We strive to deliver the highest quality workmanship to our clients, and as a member of the New Zealand Certified Builders Association, we’re able to provide you with a Halo 10 year Residential Guarantee Insurance to back that up. This provides you with peace of mind that your project is being built by trade professionals, who are backed by the most comprehensive guarantee on the market.

STARTING OUT

STARTING OUT

When I set out to find a building apprenticeship times were tough and opportunities were scarce. Despite this, I was accepted into a labour company’s apprenticeship scheme. From there I had to serve out a trial period, at first labouring, to prove I was going to uphold their name and honour their financial commitment to me.
After labouring, I began my apprenticeship with Wayne Jensen at SCD Builders. Here I was placed in the care of 3 builders, who between them had over 80 years experience in the industry – I couldn’t have asked for better people to learn from. Each offered different areas of expertise and I soaked up their knowledge like a sponge.
With Wayne and the team, I worked on commercial office units and renovations. I also assisted the team on building a number of new houses – a highlight being a country estate for one of our country’s wealthiest people.

HOW IT ALL BEGAN

How It All Began

BUILDERS ARE NOT MADE, THEY ARE BORN. From the day I was able, I was trying to construct things. I began with wooden blocks and progressed to Lego, followed by a hammer, nails and wood. It wasn’t unusual to find me helping my father Gary, building things around the house, or quietly supervising the extension being done to our bungalow, at the tender age of 4. As the years progressed, the curiosity and the passion for building only grew. Having explored what university and the work force had to offer me, I realised I couldn’t deny my heart’s desire, to work in the construction industry.
