Company Profile

A Proud History Of Service To The Construction Industry

Since 1916, we have been strongly committed to providing our customers with the highest level of service in the building and construction markets. Building and maintaining relationships with our customers is at the heart of our business and we have a planning and management style that is consultative and systematic.

We believe in a proactive approach to all aspects of our business, but in particular to quality, safety and delivery. By getting this right, we give our customers confidence and peace of mind during the process of planning, design and construction. The hands-on responsibilities and team approach of company directors Michael Braggins, Bruce Earby, Russell Mancer and Matthew Cathcart underpin our organisation with a powerful and proven synergy.

We directly employ the largest and most experienced construction team in Taranaki and we have the ability to deliver any scale of construction project.

Because we employ our own qualified tradespeople and apprentices we are better able to maintain high standards of quality, safety and delivery. To support these staff we have a team of construction management professionals that includes experienced and qualified quantity surveyors, project managers and a dedicated full-time health & safety professional.

We are committed to the future of our industry and training is regularly undertaken externally and within our business activities. We encourage the next generation of builders through an extensive apprenticeship programme and we engage with our community by supporting a large number of charitable organisations and groups. Clelands is also Taranaki’s longest serving Registered Master Builder.
