A bit about us

The Nelson office opened their doors in December 2000 and is independently owned and operated by Graham and Shirley Vercoe of LSK Builders 2011 Ltd.

They 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. 

The G.J. Nelson team has a wealth of local building experience and knowledge to offer you. Combining this with "New Zealand's most trusted home builder", they have built a reputation that ensures that all customers will receive excellent service, quality workmanship and quality product. It is the commitment to our customers that has made G.J. Gardner Homes the success it is today.

“We are passionate about meeting the needs and expectations of our clients at all times.  If we do this to the best of our ability, then building their home becomes the easiest part of the process”

– Graham and Shirley Vercoe 

Call in for a coffee and informal chat. Our G.J. Nelson team would love the opportunity to meet you!

Atawhai, Richmond, Stoke, Motueka & Tasman are just some of the areas that they build in around the Nelson District.


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.
