Having founded SMBC 10 years ago, Sam moved to Christchurch from Wanaka to pursue his passion for high-end renovations and architectural builds. A strong believer in getting out exactly what you put in, Sam loves a challenge and its reflected in the direction he’s taken the company; starting out on smaller renovations and progressing to the developments and houses we build today.

Leading a small, boutique building company he loves the ability to work closely with clients, trades and professional consultants alike, planning projects to minute detail. It's evident in his work, and his reputation in the Canterbury region speaks for itself.

Having developed his passion for well-designed and thought out homes over the 13 years he’s been building, it’s in the last eight with SMBC that he’s been able to develop and refine his skills as an architectural builder.

While living in Europe for most of his 20s, Sam picked up an appreciation for architecture that led him to a career in building. Now settled back in Christchurch, everything fell into place with SMBC, allowing him to pursue his passion for more detailed construction with a group of like-minded professionals.

Site Manager

Starting at SMBC in 2013, Matt has progressed from a carpenter into one of our Site Managers – relishing in the new challenges that come with the position. Having worked on a number of projects with SMBC, his passion for unique designs and complex builds is what gets him up each day. Using his creative skills to understand concepts, he can visualise a project in the early stages of a build and pre-empt challenges that may arise later on.

It’s these challenges that motivate him and make the finished project all the more rewarding, and with a tight-knit crew to back him up it makes a big difference knowing their support is on-hand when he needs it. You’ll find him on the golf course or working on his own place when he isn’t working on yours, because a builder’s home is never finished, right?
