Family is at the heart of our business

Wilson Buildings' proud history began back in 2002 with father Lawrence Wilson and his son Garry.

Since then Garry, together with his sister Carol, have built on the strong foundation and guidance given by their father to grow Wilson Building into one of South Canterbury's premier building firms.

The family-focus is integral to all aspects of the company, ensuring a strong and dynamic team with passion and pride in all aspects of their work. Challenges are never seen as an obstacle and more as a chance to think outside the square and use expertise and knowledge to achieve the results required.


Quality workmanship underpins everything we do

Each member of our large team is conscious of the high standard of workmanship that is expected of them.

Together we pride ourselves on creating enduring buildings, crafted to perfection.

We have a passionate team of builders, who love what they do, and that have been instrumental to the success of Wilson Building over the years.

Most recently, our team was instrumental in our success in the 2021 Mid & South Canterbury House of the Year awards – winning Supreme House of the Year and Supreme Renovation of the Year.
