Karsten

Group Manager - Carpentry Team

Karsten leads our in house carpentry team. He is a highly experienced Team Leader with decades of building experience both in residential and commercial construction. He has run his own successful construction business and also worked for housing companies as a site manager on density builds so his experience was the perfect fit to join our team.

His focus is now to grow our team of highly experienced builders and bring on “young guys” that we can put through the BCITO apprenticeship scheme as our future construction leaders. We currently have a fantastic small team that we are growing as we identify good talent. Our team uses the latest tools and technology giving them the best opportunity to excel as professional tradespeople; something Karsten is passionate about. Our site and project managers are delighted to have Karsten leading this in house team having a reliable, solid workforce who are committed to the build project and their build schedule as much as they are.

 

The housing boom in Auckland is not news to anyone but with renewed interest from the new Labour Government and their related Kiwi Build social housing commitment has put a huge demand on builders. In response to the struggle for good, reliable sub-contractors on our commercial housing sites Build Partners decided to establish their own in house carpentry team.

Our goal is to create a world class high performance team of builders where young guys can come straight from school, go through the apprenticeship scheme that we work in with BCITO; then step through the ranks from teamleader, foreman and they can even become a site manager!

We are taking our time to source only the best builders who want to be part of a team, mentor the young guys and grow their own career. Led by a highly experienced Team Leader Karsten has decades of building experience both in residential and commercial. We currently have a fantastic small team that we are growing as we identify good talent. Our team uses the latest tools and technology giving them the best opportunity to excel as professional tradespeople. Our site and project managers are delighted to have a reliable, solid workforce who are committed to the build project and their build schedule as much as they are.

Our goal is to continue to grow this team over the coming years while still working alongside our preferred building sub-contractors. Having an in-house carpentry team allows us to ensure quality and team culture, whilst we get the flexibility of labor force to ensure we meet all our build contractual obligations to our government and commercial clients.
