Whakatane Builders

Whakatane Builders, GF Builders Ltd was established as a local building company in the Whakatane area. A significant percentage of our core work has been with various contracts for the Ministry of Education and marae contracts via various project managers and architects. We also have experience in architecturally designed new homes and alterations, and light commercial work.
We have been previously involved with the Housing NZ Economic Stimulus Package.
Owners Gary and Marina Fowell have built this business from 1986 when Gary decided that as soon as he was qualified as a builder he wanted to be self employed. The building business has slowly grown over years from a partnership to a limited liability company handling multiple contracts.
