Project Manager 

Grant has been involved in creating House and Land Packages in Canterbury for almost 17 years. You could say hes been around the block! He has a great eye with making sure all our floor plans  make the most of the sun and section. No property makes it to the Construction stage until it has this mans seal of approval.

In his spare time he enjoys racing his car around Ruapuna, if you pop out to watch you may even see him catch fire again.

Cole has around 12 years experience in the construction industry. He is a fully Qualified and Licensed Builder and has spent many years on the tools himself. Cole also has a keen eye for finding great opportunity's and is busy finding the land to put our packages together. He also does all of our pricing making sure we are getting the best products at the best prices. When not at work you will find Cole busy at the gym or racing round on his motorbike. 

Chloe has grown up around the developments helping where she could with cleaning and accounts. She then jumped at the opportunity to project manage the builds for the last 3 years. Her role is now focused on helping clients through the build process from start to finish and marketing the homes we have to offer. Chloe loves going away on adventures in her spare time and you will also find her carting her horses around to the showjumping events.

Mark has a wealth of experience being in the building game for numerous years.  Mark was also in the Army for 13 years, his fellow soldiers called him Shaggy. 'Apparently' it's because he looks like Shaggy Rodgers off Scooby-Doo.⁠
⁠This man has it covered! From braiding hair, scootering with his two girls to managing builds - you know you will be in safe hands.⁠
⁠You will see him popping into each site regularly to ensure each house passes his high-quality expectations

Freedom Built are proud to partner with the Launch Foundation managing and constructing a build in Goulds Estate. Every dollar saved throughout the building process will go towards at risk children and youth within the Canterbury region. These children and youth are suffering from the effects of poverty, abandonment, delinquency, addiction and mental illness.


We are proud to contribute to the SKY TV Special Children’s Christmas Parties. The children invited are children who suffer from one of the following: life threatening illness, physical and intellectual impairment, domestic violence, or living in underprivileged circumstances. The Special Children's Christmas Party goal is to put smiles on these childrens faces for at least one day this year!
