We Build Your Dreams

We specialise in a wide range of building services from bathroom and kitchen renovations to new house builds, home extensions and earthquake repairs.

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.
