The Peter Richards Builders Difference.

It’s easy to say Peter Richards Builders are local — but being local means some very special things to me and to you, my customer.

Being local means I grew up in the area, I have a passion for the area and I understand the challenges of building in the area. My team of project managers, craftsmen, carpenters and administration staff are an integral part of my commitment to you. Our entire team know and understand the value of truly “serving our customers”.

Many of our customers live away from the area and some overseas, reading through our referrals you will see that our clients have 'peace of mind' when they build with our company. We'll keep you up to date with regular weekly emails and photos of the building in progress.

We cover the central plateau region including the communities on the shores of Lake Taupo and surround settlements of Taihape, Ohakune, Waiouru, Taumaranui, and Mangakino.

Being a stickler for detail, Peter has built a team of very experienced, local subcontractors, who deliver the highest standard of work. They are also renowned for going that extra mile, as Peter has developed a strong culture within his business of customer service.

Lockwood is the Flagship brand of Peter Richards Builders. So after 30 years building Lockwoods theres a lot of passion and knowledge built in. Over those 30 years I've been involved in many different building projects, from lifts at Turoa Skifields, farm buildings, renovations and additions, large commercial buildings and some homes of real distinction.

We have been a Registered Master Builder since 1980 and over those years have won many awards including many Gold Award Catagories and National Category Winners.

I personally invite you to become part of the Peter Richards Building experience.

You won’t be disappointed.

Peter Richards, Owner/Director Peter Richards Builders.
