Since leaving school, I have always worked in the construction/trade industry (except for an O/E in Europe through my early to mid-twenties). I was either plaining or filleting timber in sawmills, on machinery, in transfer stations, landfills or on commercial and residential construction sites. Upon returning from Europe and the UK in 2011, I moved to Christchurch after the quake to help rebuild the city, completing Residential EQC claims work as a foreman employee. After that, Cashmore Contractors Ltd was proudly established as a limited liability company in October 2013 (after grafting as a sole trader for some period prior).
I am a qualified carpenter, a licensed building practitioner and an award winning registered master builder completing projects ranging in all sizes and extravagance.
It was with a $400.00 Citroen, filling the gas tank with petrol out of a water blaster container, completing jobs for well under the minimum wage, counting the baked beans from the tin and separating them into meals, that the business developed it's core values. Values that are best and only taught through experience. I priced jobs as fairly and reasonably as I thought possible, only to find out that working in a fast-food chain would have returned a higher wage. I would make mistakes but would fix them at any cost. Lessons such as these repeated themselves one way or another (for a relatively painful length of time).
With a little luck and much hard work, goals were reached, and a reputation was created. Jobs were always finished at any cost to ensure complete client satisfaction. From this, Cashmore Contractors Ltd was born. Today we stand as a business conducting itself in a manner and completing projects I would never have imagined possible when driving my $400.00 Citroen and struggling to eat. Always unwavering in the determination to make Cashmore Contractors a success!
Today, we specialize in the construction of new homes, multi-residential, design/builds and subdivisions. We manage all duties regarding local authorities, consent applications and sign off processes.
Cashmore Contractors has had the good fortune to receive advice from practiced business persons and experienced first hand, the character building and core lessons all New Zealand ground-up-built business do. It is with this in mind that quality, client satisfaction, timely production and reputation are at the forefront of my business values. After many years we can stand up and proudly call ourselves an established business and compete at the forefront of the industry.
We have grown and are establishing ourselves as a recognized leader in our field, proudly built from the bottom up (as one can tell from my story above). We could change, we could sell you a sales pitch about how fantastic we think we are, or, we could just let our work ethic and integrity speak for itself, (I chose the latter). Either because I know no better or because I believe the personal passion I have needs to reflect through. Given that we are building your most significant investment, your pride and joy, or your family's dream home, whatever the case may be, we understand how important, how valuable and personal this process is. Every company detail is meticulously thought out and planned, be it our phone number (0800 DREAM HOME), our vehicles, or our branding. Nothing is "slapped together" because we don't slap your home together. We are genuinely committed to creating your dream home, one careful detail at a time. I have ambitions to grow and provide a better quality product, leading my company by way of building dream homes.
I am genuinely passionate about my work, and I pour my blood, sweat and tears into every detail of every project. I love creating something my family and I can be proud of; our livelihood is entwined with yours, which is why you can always expect the very best from Cashmore Contractors. Our story, from counting baked beans to gold awards, speaks for itself!
