Tyler spent most of his childhood on the Kapiti coast, so the beach has always been his second home. Playing softball in summer and rugby in winter from the age of 5, like all young boys he worked hard at his aim to become an All Black. At the age of 11 Tyler and his family relocated to Hamilton to be closer to the extended family.
Realising early on that school wasn’t for him, in 2003 Tyler seized the opportunity to do a building apprenticeship that gave him intensive one-on-one training and extensive experience. With his boss specialising in spec houses, he got to learn a wide variety of skills. Tyler had found his vocation and his passion: the combination of being hands on and building houses was a perfect fit. He loved seeing the finished product and developed a keen eye for detail. His passion grew with experience.
As soon as he had completed his apprenticeship in 2009, Tyler packed his bags and headed over the ditch, as many Kiwis do, with chasing the money and travelling experiences high on his agenda.
After many years in high-rise construction he worked his way up to the role of supervisor, travelling widely on his weeks off. In 2015 Tyler and his partner knew it was time to move back to the Waikato to be nearer to family and start their own. To support his growing family Tyler started his own building company, The timing was perfect: word of mouth referrals and the building industry boom mean he has not looked back.
Tyler’s passion for building is very evident at every stage of a project. His strong work ethics and family values fuel his determination to provide an exceptional product and exceptional service. He has surrounded himself with a great team in whom he has absolute trust and has created a hard-working and enjoyable work culture. Communication has always been number one for Tyler and his team, which makes the building process both easy and enjoyable.
