Newlife Homes Ltd is owned and operated by Blair McAlpine. Blair is a Titahi Bay boy who began his career in a saw mill, and has worked his way up into the building industry. He became a qualified builder in 2004, and a licensed building practitioner with the introduction of new regulations in 2012. He is also a master builder, recognized and accredited by the New Zealand Master Builders organisation.
Now with more than 20 years’ building experience, he knows and understands the geology, climate and special features of the Wellington region which are critical to good building.
Although Blair is “on the tools” himself three days per week, he undertakes the role of project manager on all his jobs, running a qualified team of two, and is closely involved in getting consents and the flow of work, ensuring that materials and subcontractors are on each job as required, on time and providing quality service.
