Tyler Hale

Site Manager

Tyler is a Trade Certified builder and LBP with seventeen years’ experience. He loves a tidy site nearly as much as he loves fishing, hunting, diving and making the most of what Otago has on offer. 


Specialist tip: A tidy site is a sign of a tidy job. If you’re deciding whether to use one builder over another, drop in on one of their jobs. You’re welcome at ours anytime!

Ezra Jackson

Site Manager

Gerry O’Connor


Emma Swann

Office Administrator

When he’s not snowboarding the peaks of Otago or flying over our stunning surrounds, Ezra is our Trade Certified LBP with sixteen years’ experience.


Specialist tip: Cladding is more than a pretty wrapping for your home. Consider the elements it will be exposed to and the ongoing cost and hassle of maintaining your selection.

Gerry is one of our experienced carpenters, with twenty years under his toolbelt. He has an amazingly consistent attitude where nothing is a problem and is always more than happy to please. With a love of the guitar, bass and drums he’s the artist of the crew. 


Specialist tip: Make sure you get your floor plan right at the start, lock it in and don’t look back.

Emma is our talented Office Administrator, but don’t let her computer skills fool you. You’re just as likely to spot her at the top of one of Otago’s stunning mountains or strolling her dogs around town. 


Specialist tip: Designing and building your home should be exciting not stressful. Find the right team and enjoy the process.

Head of Security

“We have thoroughly enjoyed working with CBG Quality Construction on a number of projects over the last few years. 


CBG have a great relationship with their subcontractors, including MAXRaft, which makes our part of the process flow smoothly.


They are passionate about building homes that perform better than the industry standard and providing their clients with a great experience from start to finish.  


We have no hesitation in recommending CBG to any prospective home owners.”

Henry Edney of Maxraft Slabs

“As a supplier of choice to CBG Quality Construction, we are pleased to be one of their key partners. CBG Quality Construction offer high-quality builds in the Central Otago area and when working with them their eye for detail is exceptional.


We have successfully completed many projects together for a growing number of very satisfied clients. They are great communicators and have a strong knowledge of the building process, backed up by decades of hands on practical experience. 


Our relationship with CBG Quality Construction has been ongoing for a number of years and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their services to anyone.”

William Hubbard of Formance

"The boys onsite are very professional and clean so I thought I should mention that, as it is an unusual occurrence.


Most of the time the schedule is always delayed, the site is messy, people do not communicate and the concrete lay is rubbish but this time I had none of it so I’m very happy and pleased you guys chose NZ Grinders to work with.


I really like well organised people and you guys are.


Also I haven’t seen a clean and tidy site like that in a very long time so well done."

Wolmir Fuzinatto of NZ Grinders
