The Mighty Bryce Knight:
Born and bred in Lower Hutt, I attended Saint Patricks College, Silver Stream. After college I completed a year at Art school, followed by working with a local blacksmith – learning the skills of that trade. I then moved to Melbourne for 2 years, managing a salmon farm. After deciding I would like a change of industry and missing my home town of Wellington, New Zealand, I came home and started toward my building qualification.
While completing my apprenticeship, I had the advantage of one-on-one teaching from a highly skilled builder of 40+ years experience in the trade. This helped fast-track my skills and allowed me to become qualified in 2 and a half years, rather than the 4 years they suggest it would take. From this I also gained the appreciation and knowledge of the older style finishing and quality of construction, which some new-school builders today would not of had the privilege of learning.
Before starting my own business I also worked in another company for 2 years gaining more experience and worked on a variety of building sites, where I started project managing.
I now have 7 current years of building experience, with a strong background in residential alterations. However, I have plenty of experience with all aspects of building such as light commercial, leaky homes, re-clads and bespoke carpentry pieces. I can offer helpful advice on project layouts, quality materials and a wide range of other recommended sub-contractors to complete your project. I take huge pride in my business and what we achieve in our workmanship.
