OUR OFFICE STAFF

Brendon-Sowerby-Director

Brendon Sowerby

Director
Brendon grew up playing rugby in Feilding. In 2003, he was given the opportunity to travel to the UK to play rugby. In 2004, he travelled the US, also to play rugby. It was while working as a construction labourer to help fund his travels that Brendon found his passion for the construction industry.

Upon his return to New Zealand, Brendon began working as an apprentice builder, however, he had caught the travel bug, so travelled back to the UK where he started a loft conversion company. He learnt a lot from this experience, like how to work to a tight budget and think creatively to maximise client’s spaces.
