In his time with us Blake has moved up from apprentice carpenter to project manager. He began his apprenticeship in Wellington in 2007 and was soon a foreman on the award-winning refurbishment of Government House in 2012. Blake then had a four-year stint working overseas in construction, primarily in London, before rejoining us in 2016 and relocating to Auckland. He has an impressive track record, from his early apprenticeship days to project managing some big high-end apartment complexes and developments in Auckland. According to one satisfied client, Blake “displayed outstanding skill” in management of his team, the project and budget, and managed highly stressful situations “with a very calm composure”.
