At G.J. Gardner Homes, all of our franchises operate within the requirements of Licensed Building Practitioners


The Southland office re-opened its doors in 2013, after receiving strong requests from the Southland market. The local franchise is independently owned and operated by Simon Culhane and Lisa Vaughan of Silsa Construction Ltd.

The Southland 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 wealth of local building experience and knowledge will ensure that your home is constructed using quality products and quality workmanship. Combining this with “New Zealand's Most Trusted Home Builder" they have built a reputation that ensures that all their customers will receive excellent service, quality workmanship, and a quality product.


They cover a vast area; Invercargill, Winton, Gore, Bluff, Te Anau, Riverton, Wyndam, Mataura, Wallacetown, Waianiwa, Otautau, Tuatapere, Athol, Garston, Balfour, Riversdale, Mossburn, Manapouri and just about anywhere else in Southland.


Feel free to drop by to chat about your new home journey and discover for yourself why more New Zealanders trust G.J. Gardner to build their homes year after year than any other builder.

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.
