A bit about us

The Christchurch North franchise first opened their doors in March 2000. Since March 2008, the franchise has been independently owned and operated by Andrew McCarthy, with Mike Fraser recently joining Andrew as a co-owner of AG and LM McCarthy Ltd.

Both Andrew and Mike have backgrounds in engineering. Andrew holds an Honours degree in Environmental Engineering, an MBA and prior to joining G.J. Gardner Homes worked in town planning and engineering consulting positions for both the Christchurch City Council and NZ Windfarms Ltd.

Mike holds an Honours degree in Civil Engineering and has a work history in private civil engineering companies as well as the public health sector. Prior to moving to Christchurch to join Andrew, Mike spent close to 10 years as Managing Director of the very successful Rodney G.J. Gardner Homes franchise.

Both Andrew and Mike are passionate about the G.J. Gardner Homes business and especially when it comes to ensuring every one of their clients enjoy the build process.

The Christchurch North team understand that you are an individual and have unique requirements when building a home. They will work together with you to design and build a home that suits your needs, your personal taste, and your lifestyle. Their wealth of local building experience and knowledge will ensure that your home is constructed using quality products and quality workmanship.

All customers not only receive excellent service when dealing with our Christchurch North team, but also receive a real sense of family, of being included and of being listened to. "We look forward to building fantastic homes for wonderful people. When you're happy, we're happy." say Andrew and Mike. It is this commitment to our customers that has made G.J. Gardner Homes the success it is today. With franchises like Christchurch North on board, it's little wonder that G.J. Gardner Homes have a reputation for being "New Zealand's most trusted home builder."

LBP Logo

From March 1st 2012 changes to the Building Act 2004 mean that building work of homes affecting the structure or water envelope (as when building new homes), will be classified as Restricted Building Work and is required to be carried out by competent, appropriately licensed building practitioners. At G.J. Gardner Homes, all of our franchises operate within the requirements of Licensed Building Practitioners. If you require any further information about licensing please click the logo above to go to the Licensed building practitioners (LBPs) website website.
