It’s a real team effort,” he says. James, who offers nearly 40 years building experience, started his Christchurch based building company in 1993. James Mackay Builders focuses on architec- tural homes, renovations (complex restructur- ing or addition, a remodelled kitchen, lounge, bathroom or dining room) and light com- mercial projects such as office fit-outs, sheds and community projects in Christchurch and Canterbury. The company takes projects from plans to completion, working with some of the city’s top architectural practices. If clients don’t have plans then James Mack- ay Builders can introduce them to the right ar- chitect for their project and vision. As Master Builders, James Mackay Builders can offer the association’s guarantee on projects. James says James Mackay Builders focus- es on delivering high quality outcomes with attention to detail and craftsmanship taking a leading role. The company employs its own team of builders as this enables all-important control every step of the way. It also works with trusted subcontractors it has hand picked and worked with for many years. In addition James also has the majori- ty shareholding in General Joinery Co Ltd, which often works on this aspect of projects undertaken by James Mackay Builders. Once again this gives the company ultimate quality control by being able to essential undertake many aspects of a build in-house. “High end projects always have unique chal- lenges,” says James. “So it’s important to keep relationships thriving creating real focus on a great result and being able to undertake as many aspects of the build in-house as we can.” This tight knit team and structure also allows James Mackay Builders to complete multiple projects at the same time.

James Mackay Builders has also just completed a four bedroom single storey architecturally designed holiday home in Rakaia Valley.

The home includes four bedrooms, three bathrooms, three living spaces and an out- door concrete pool. “At James Mackay Builders our team thrives on a challenge and it’s important to keep on our game all the time as any builder is only as good as their last project.
