ESJAY Builders Ltd, was originally founded in 1970 by John Mitchell, who two years later joined the Canterbury Registered Master Builders in 1972. In 1999 ESJAY Builders was formed as a second generation business.
ESJAY builders has been moving in leaps and bounds ever since with the company philosophy ‘Do it Once, Do it Right’ which has set the foundation for a solid company that is able to develop and grow with the changing times.
Being a family business, both of John’s sons, Stephen and Andrew, have now taken over the company while still holding onto the core values that this company has always stood behind.
The company has a number of highly skilled employees giving the business a wealth of knowledge and experience. At ESJAY Builders we are able to offer a wide range of services including Architectural Design, Project Management, and Quantity Surveying as well having a fully qualified Construction Manager, Foreman and Carpenters with apprentices.
ESJAY Builders have proudly been a big part of the Christchurch Rebuild working with EQC, Insurance companies and private clients. We are now moving and evolving into new and exciting avenues that allow us as a building company to think beyond the standard methods of building and achieve a superior home or building with similar costs to a standard build.
As part of the ‘Superhome Movement’ we are able to introduce these building methods that allow for more sustainable living at an affordable cost. By taking the time to research, look at methods used and working with renowned materials we are able to achieve this.
As a Homestar Assessor, Stephen has an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the requirements to achieve an extremely efficient home, making it warmer and dryer with dramatically reduced running costs, while adding value without compromise.
ESJAY Builders are very excited about moving into this new era and the opportunities, ideas and challenges that this brings.
