We’re proud of our team here at John Garlick Builders, with an experienced, professional team led by Kade Atkinson. We are able to manage multiple projects on multiple sites at any one time. One thing that we hear often from our customers is “I wish I’d come to you first!”, which usually means before they purchased their section, before they visited an architect, and before the building began! It is for this reason we encourage you to contact us, even if you are just thinking about building.

We have the experience in all aspects of building planning, design and construction to give the right advice first time.
