Mike Osborne - Foreman

Mike Osborne Superior ConstructionMike is responsible for giving Phil his start in the building industry a few decades ago; Mike was Phil’s first employer in the building industry! And now we consider ourselves very lucky that Mike is working with us. He is our most experienced foreman with 40 years in the industry; there isn’t a problem this man can’t handle. He has spent the last few decades doing mainly new homes, renovations and light commercial work.

Mike is a local Howick man and married with two lovely teenage daughters. What he enjoys most about his illustrious building career is the final, finished product and the satisfaction of a job well done. In his spare time you may see him walking the dog around Howick or on the golf course.

Colin Wade - Foreman

Colin's a family man (3 gorgeous kids and lovely wife) and comes from a farming background - hence bred from good working stock!

George Napa - Builder

George Napa Superior ConstructionGeorge has known Phil since Phil was 16, having played underwater hockey with Phil’s dad a few decades ago. George is often Phil’s partner in crime when it comes to snorkeling and spear fishing. George has been with us for 2 years and is indispensable around our jobs helping out wherever needed. George does occasionally go missing from our sites but can usually be found underwater in the Coromandel. Feel free to put in your order for fish and crayfish but you may have to get in line!

Nick Walton - Builder

Nick Walton Superior ConstructionqNick is a recent import from Leeds in the UK. Working with Superior has given him the ability to emigrate to New Zealand with his wife and young family; Eva 8, Esther 6 and Max 3. He’s a joiner by trade (18 years experience) so needless to say his finishing is excellent. With his skill set his preferred jobs are renovations; Nick prefers old against new. If a good workout is needed, feel free to join Nick at the squash courts as this sport is what he’s passionate about.

He's got a couple of world titles to his name and currently is coaching the Under 19's NZ Team.

Chris Dodd - Builder

chris dodd team member superior constructionChris is a relatively new addition to our team. He’s been building for around 6 years and enjoys most aspects of the job but specifically enjoys problem solving. He gets a kick out of the challenges of his building job; working out stair cases & roofs etc. He feels by doing these more technical elements he’s adding to his skill set & increasing his knowledge every day.

In his spare time he enjoys fishing and catching up with friends for “a” beer or wine (just the one then Chris?). Chris is living with his partner & has a new addition to his family; his one eyed dog Stanley. With a girlfriend who’s a vet, we suspect there may be more additions to follow shortly?!

We are thrilled Chris has come on board as part of our Superior Team. He’s a great guy with an excellent work ethic; we shan’t be letting him go anytime soon.

Steve Engelfield - Builder

Steve Engelfield Superior ConstructionSteve has been with Superior construction for over a year and has been building since he was 15; so a wee while then. He’s NZ trained and used to run his own business hence is well qualified to work with us. He lives in Bucklands Beach with his wife and gorgeous 3 kids. His favourite part of building is seeing a project from start to finish and also seeing a satisfied family move in at the end of a job, happy with their new home.

Steve’s spare time is spent (happily) shuttling his kids about to various sporting activities. Steve is a very cheery member of our team.
