The team at BGT works hard to create a story behind each new build project, using traditional styles and long-lasting quality techniques. Each project is a work of art, representing the individual client’s own dreams and desires. A strong recycled, rustic theme reflects Ben’s emphasis on environmentally ethical and sustainable practices in much of his work.
Ben Golby’s Traditional Construction specialises in adding some global cultured flavour to the South Island’s unique, alpine rustic building style. Native timbers, recycled beams and hardwoods and exterior cladding systems made from exotic timbers are all handcrafted, along with other materials, to achieve stand-out results.
Ben and his team love working with old recycled timber, dismantled bridge beams and parts that are cleverly woven into unique features, tailor-made to suit each home.
“These are homes that have a unique personal stamp on them, quality homes that stand the test of time. It’s long been a passion of mine to build heritage style, character homes, using recycled materials as features.” – Ben Golby
