Behind every high-performance home
is a passionate craftsman

I’m a firm believer in craftsmanship, so when I began my career in the New Zealand building industry I knew it wouldn’t be long before I wanted to raise the standards I was being trained to maintain.

I had a passion for architecturally designed homes, superior quality and protecting our unique environment, spending my spare hours buried in the evolution of passive house principles, new construction methods, the latest technology and sustainable materials.

Your high-performance partner

Today, YBL is the result of years of research, training, hand-picked experts and hands-on experience, with a vision to help our wonderful region craft homes well above our building code. As proud members of the NZGBC, we are forever upgrading our knowledge and offer clients their very own ‘Homestar’ rating and a ten-year RMB Guarantee.

A significant part of this is collaborating closely with renowned architects from the get-go, offering our on the job knowledge and working together to craft a seamless building journey and superior result.

Now with a diverse portfolio of architecturally designed homes under our tool belt, we are proud to call ourselves Queenstown’s high-performance building expert.

Our handcrafted team

As I continue to keep up with the forever-evolving world of energy efficient technology and techniques, the YBL difference remains the same; relationships. We are a team of passionate, highly skilled specialists with an emphasis on open communication and a dedication to quality. Architects, engineers, carpenters, quantity surveyors and subcontractors who live in our unique Otago climate, understand the elements their craft is up against and actively work to protect your home for generations to come.

As chief craftsman, I’ll be your Project Manager and go-to throughout, ensuring a seamless, efficient and enjoyable building journey for all. My dedication to quality is backed by our two project per year policy - let’s chat about making your high-performance home one of them.
