Qualified Builders Profile

Construction and Renovation Builders

Just like the Takahe, our company is 100% made in New Zealand; locally owned with qualified builders, and operated to provide specialist building, renovation and construction services throughout Canterbury.

Takahe Construction combines the building talents and trade qualified skills of Tim Forman and Calvin Cocks who first met some 15 years ago when they were building apprentices. Both men went off to start their own successful building companies but a desire to do more work together saw Tim and Calvin join forces in April 2010 to form Takahe Construction. Since then, Tim and Calvin have gone from strength to strength, employing a team of 6 administration staff and 19 site staff, including 12 highly skilled, NZQA qualified LBP builders.

Takahe Construction is a name you can trust. With over 50 years combined experience; we have an excellent reputation for doing a great job. We work closely with architects to give advice to their clients on the right building and material options to make the building process easy and worry-free.

Our size is our advantage. We are large enough to handle any building project yet small enough to provide the personal touch of a highly dedicated team. You can relax knowing your project will be managed by the top people in the company.

From home renovations to challenging hillside sites, architecturally designed homes to commercial fit-outs and construction services, our qualified builders will breathe life into your building plans and make them a reality.
