A bit about us

Our Franklin / Papakura franchise is independently owned and actively operated by Mike O'Meeghan and Jeff & Bob de Leeuw, Directors of MJB Construction Ltd.

Bob de Leeuw has been involved in the residential building industry as a trade Certified Builder for over 40 years. Before opening G.J. Gardner Homes Hamilton / Waikato, he worked under his own very successful name and is a national award winning builder of luxury homes. Bob's son Jeff has an extensive background in civil engineering having worked as a Consultant Engineer and for Transit New Zealand. Mike comes from a corporate merchant environment within the construction industry, having worked for PlaceMakers head office for over 10 years.

Jeff and Bob also own the successful G.J. Gardner Hamilton / Waikato franchise, and have done so for over 13 years. The father and son team has proven to be a winning one with the Hamilton / Waikato business being a market leader for many years. They are also a multiple award winning office for International Franchise of the Year, within the greater G.J. Gardner Homes group.

Jeff and Bob's experience and business practices are well complemented in the franchise by Mike's dedication to providing an exceptional service and demanding quality workmanship. Mike's hands on approach and genuine nature produce great results.

The G.J. Franklin / Papakura team understand that you are an individual and you have unique requirements when building a home. By working together with you they can design and build a home that suits you, your lifestyle and your needs.

Their partnership has a wealth of building experience and knowledge to offer you.

It is the commitment to our customers that has made G.J. Gardner Homes the success it is today.

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.
