Magic Story – Keane Building

Growing up in Amberley, a small town just north of Christchurch, I was always on a building site with my Dad Paul, a local builder who serviced the Hurunui district for over 30 years.

In 1994 at the age of 6 I started playing rugby for the local rugby club alongside my brothers. This is where I began to learn the value of teamwork and dedication. As I progressed through the age groups I had the opportunity to represent North Canterbury on a number of occcassions. After a short stint at league where I represented Canterbury, I returned to the the Glenmark/Cheviot senior rugby team to play with my brothers.

During this period I left high school and took up an apprenticehip with my Dad. It was throughout this time that my passion for excellence and abilty to problem solve grew. I enjoyed learning from the builders, some of whom had years of experience, and aquired a great deal of knowledge and skills through their tutelage. I also learnt
many lessons, lessons around managing people and a busy construction site that have proved invaluable since I started my own business. Because of these experiences I am now able to anticipate and solve issues before they arise, problem solve and organise an effective and efficient worksite, something I now love to teach my own team.

In 2009 at the age of 21 I decided it was time to start the next chapter in my life and go out on my own. I founded Keane Building in January 2009 and took on my first employee, my younger brother Mike who completed his apprenticeship with me. It was a daunting prospect going out on my own at such a young age but one I felt
strongly about. I was adamant I wanted to deliver a quality service, second to none to my clients. In 2010 my girlfriend Beth and I built our first home in Pegasus and by this time I had convinced my older brother Matt to come and work for me.

2013 was a busy year for me. Beth and I got married and started building our second home and I took on a new employee – my first that wasn’t a family member. Since then Keane Building has continued to grow. We’re currenlty a 10 person team, with 7 of us being involved in the Glenmark/Cheviot senior rugby team.

Integrity

Honesty

Excellence

Dedication

As well as the growth of my business my family has grown too. In 2015 our first son Nixon was born, followed by twins Jagger and Reiko in 2017. Having a young family myself, I understand the need for excellent communication and organisation. That’s why we now use an online prpject managaement system that allows you to keep up to date with progress on site from the convenience of your smart phone or computer. We’ve found that this is the best way for you to enjoy a stress and hassle free building process.

Currently most of my spare time is dedicated to my young family and rugby. I do still enjoy diving, fishing, hunting and snowboarding and try and do these as often as time allows. Unfortunately my dirtbike gathers more dust in the garage than on the track these days.

I pride myself on our family values and providing an exceptional service to my valued clients. I refuse to compromise on quality and my passion is for you to enjoy the whole process of your new build from start to finish. I see it as a celebration of hard work and the effort you put in to create your dream home. I work closely with you, planning every stage meticulously. It’s what I love to do and what Keane Building is about.
I proudly stand by my promise to deliver you a unique home with less stress, built best.

About Director

Our company has been built on the passions of three brothers. Our father operated his own building business for over 30 years, and as we grew, so did our love for creating exceptional homes.

Once I was fully certified I decided it was time I made my own mark delivering exceptional results, and founded Keane Building in 2009.

Born and bred Cantabrians, my brothers Matt and Michael decided to join me as well, I guess you could say building is in our DNA.

Understanding the need to create well-made and beautifully appointed homes was the key in establishing a reputable name for Keane Building.

My passion is for you to enjoy the whole process of your new build from start to finish. I see it as a celebration of hard work and the effort you put in to create your dream home. I work closely with you, planning every stage meticulously.

I proudly stand by my promise to deliver you a unique home with less stress, built best.
