Our Team

Jon has worked as a builder for over 14 years on all sorts of projects from renovations to million-dollar properties, gaining extensive knowledge building some award-winning homes in the Central Plateau region and also overseas. Jon has been qualified since 2004, is a Licensed Building Practitioner (LBP) and a Registered Master Builder.

Jon and Amy work alongside the design team right from the beginning, which means they know every detail of your project ensuring a smooth build. Working with a hands-on owner ensures that every detail of your vision is met and achieved with the utmost care.

Alongside this, we strive to make each job as easy as possible for you by using only trusted sub-tradesmen. You can be sure that everyone involved in the process is committed to the same high standards upheld by Build Taupo. Build Taupo does not sub-contract carpentry work.

Both growing up and attending local high schools in Taupo, Jon and Amy know that Taupo is the perfect place to raise their young family and enjoy the numerous activities that Lake Taupo has to offer.
