About Canterbury Builders

Canterbury Builders was founded in January 2011 and is the result of a successful working relationship between two qualified building contractors and a project management professional. This initial collaboration has built a strong and successful company and has been strengthened by a dedicated and experienced team of builders and sub-contractors.

The management team at Canterbury Builders Limited work closely to ensure the best outcome for our clients.

Victoria manages all company admin to ensure everything is up-to-date and everyone is supported to get projects completed.
Clayton and Phil oversee all our major projects keeping everyone involved informed and on task.
