Why Choose Us

Strathclyde offers offer a wealth of experience in the full package, from earthworks through to building and landscaping. We are committed to providing practical, common-sense solutions to challenging construction projects whilst keeping our team safe and upholding the highest quality standards.

Master Builders

We are members of the Master Builders Association, which gives you the assurance you are working with builders of a proven high standard. Our work is backed by the Master Builders’ 10-year guarantee.

Getting It Right Upfront

We will sit down with yours or our architect and engineer, depending on the requirements, and provide the practical input necessary for the right outcome. As your trusted builder we will help you to get the balance just right in regards to what you want vs what is possible vs your budget. We will mitigate risk for you and provide clearer costs.


While working on your project, we will treat your home and its surroundings with the greatest of respect. We encourage a clean, well mannered and well-presented site at all times. A clean site is a safe site.

Diverse Staff & Resources

All our building sites are overseen by one of our LBP builders, and our civil and landscaping foremen are real sharpshooters. We carry a large range of plant and equipment. We put the right person on the right tool on the right job, providing the highest level of efficiency for our clients.

Complex Sites - Nothing's Too Hard

We make the difficult easy. Technical and logistically challenging projects are both our forte and our passion. Our Civil Engineer Scott and the rest of our team thrive off this type of work, systematically working through your project from planning through construction to execution. Disclaimer: We do enjoy the simpler projects to recharge and hone our skills.

Start To Finish

Many builders and contractors only do one thing, meaning lots of handovers on projects between different parties. Our team will be on-site from breaking ground through to the finishing touches and landscaping. Handovers are therefore in-house, allowing information to travel more smoothly. We avoid the “construction Chinese whispers”.

Quality Assurance

We have a comprehensive 280-point quality checklist that we methodically update throughout the build.

Core values

Strathclyde provides the most efficient solutions to complex projects. We are committed to building outstanding and durable homes and gardens with integrity and ingenuity, giving Canterbury the service it deserves.

Be Pragmatic

We value common sense, and our team knows there is a solution to every problem. If an individual hasn't seen a solution to an issue, the whole team get on the company’s group chat and see who knows what to do. Two heads are better than one, and in our case, 15 heads are even better.

Your Word Is Your Bond

If we say we are going to do something, we do it. Honesty and integrity are our most important values. They underpin everything we do. We must always deliver on our promises.

Think About The Next Guy

All our team leaders have worked on large commercial projects. They have seen first-hand the issues that arise when all trades on a project work towards the same goal. As such, Strathclyde is extremely focused on making life as easy as possible for the next trade to come in (which often is another member of our team). Thinking about the next guy keeps morale high and makes for a smoothly run project.

No Egos

Our teams communicate continually through our company group chat. If we make a mistake, we own it, and then we fix it. If we don't know the answer to something, we ask. Focusing on the big picture, which is your project, we need to leave the egos at the site gate. True collaboration only comes when we can all focus on one single goal. This is the Strathclyde way.

Treat It Like Our Own Home

Our Director Scott is often reiterating this. It can be easy to see a home as just a workplace when you are working there every day. However, we know this is not the case. We all keep reminding each other of the respect that your property deserves.

Adhere To The Heirarchy (Safety - Quality - Speed)

Reinforcing our guarantee. Safety comes first, no exceptions. It is paramount that our team gets home safe each night. Quality is next. We aim for the highest standards and our team strive to uphold this, checking each other’s work and taking time for reflection to get the best outcomes. Speed comes last. We do not cut corners.
