Owners Geoff and Lee McIlroy are true Cantabrians - born and bred.
Geoff fulfilled his childhood dream of becoming a builder way back in the late seventies with an apprenticeship for a large construction company. With a fine attention to detail and strong work ethic, he climbed the ladder quickly, taking a leading foreman’s position within four years.
In 1990 he took the plunge into self-employment forming a partnership with a fellow builder. This fifteen year partnership not only provided a good grounding for small business management, but also cemented many long-term associations with sub-contractors and employees across Canterbury.
In February 2005, GMac Builders Ltd was established, with Geoff as Managing Director, and Lee working behind the scenes running the administration side of the business. As a strong team, we’ve been building dream homes for Cantabrians ever since.
``Choosing GMac Builders for our rebuild was a great choice. The project was very well managed and stress-free as Geoff was excellent at keeping us informed of progress and helping with suggestions through each stage of the build as required. Nothing was a problem and any issues that arose were dealt with promptly and to our satisfaction. Their tradesmen and subcontractors were experienced and totally professional. All of the work was completed to a very high standard. We would not hesitate to recommend GMac Builders for reliability, professionalism and quality of work, and will definitely use them for any future projects.``
``We are really pleased and very proud of our new home. Geoff kept us well informed throughout the whole process from design to completion. Geoff’s experience and expertise enabled us to have everything on our wish list, and the quality and workmanship is outstanding. Thanks for a pleasurable building experience and a wonderful new home.``
``I have known Geoff McIlroy since 1994 when my wife and I purchased our house, which he had recently built to an architectural design. Over the years he has completed any work we have required of him, including a substantial extension some years ago. We regard him as an expert builder, sound advisor, and a reasonably priced worker who has become a valued friend. I have no hesitation in recommending him and his work as a builder and organizer.``
