We will take your work home in our lunchbox 

We don’t have a team of 120 builders, we have a hand picked team of BUILDING LEGENDS. Our team members want to be the best so they learn develop and upskill in order to be BUILDING LEGENDS.

Most of our team members have been with us for years and are like whanau to us (in fact some of them are whanau!) From a BUILDING LEGEND you can expect timeliness, quality and an awesome work ethic – We will take your work home in our lunchbox!


Certificate in Carpentry, Licensed Building Practitioner, Current First Aid Certificate, Site Safe Supervisor

Originally from Mitimiti in the Hokianga, Shane was brought up in Mangere and completed his building qualification at Manukau Institute of Technology. Shane comes from a proud history of quality builders, his father Henry Penney was a builder gaining his qualifications from Maori Affairs Trades Training Academy in 1971.

“I’ve been on building sites with my Dad since I was 12 years old”. Shane prefers to be on the tools and with his team making sure the work is of a quality he is happy with.

“Anyone with a tool belt in Auckland calls themselves builders nowadays…do it once and do it properly is what I teach my team”.

“Shane had been in the building industry for over 20 years and learnt from his dad. Another brilliant builder yet consistent work and decent pay were always an issue. I could not understand how such a highly skilled worker could be out of work in this market and not being paid their worth… we started the company with that in mind to offer quality building skills direct to the market.

What I offer you as a client of our company is good clear solid communication –  after years in business we have always had great relationships and feedback from our clients

We have inherent Maori values and it is these values that come before standard business gains and models. Firstly members of our team become members of our whanau and as such we look after them, value them with the best pay we can offer while ensuring as a bare minimum the living wage.”


Our logo was designed with Shanes trusty hammer and crowbar (these tools have worked on a few sites)!


These certificates belong to Henry Penney, Shanes dad. He was a building legend and inspires our company to this day.

His favourite saying was “I’ll take your work home in my lunchbox”.

This is our team motto as we want to continue the legacy of Building Legends!
