Meet the builder

Dewhirst Construction is a family business run by Jack and Liv. Dewhirst Construction was established in 2011 after Jack met Liv and decided to stay in the country instead of pursuing overseas ventures.


Building has been Jack’s passion since leaving school. Jack has worked in Carpentry since returning from his O.E in the United States after finishing high school. He completed his apprenticeship with a local carpenter who specialised in high end builds which has been the foundation for all of his work since. He brings years of experience to the table combined with a real passion for quality workmanship. It is important for him to structure each build with correct process in mind, ensuring the very best outcomes for his clients.

Jack has trained several apprentices and established a quality team of builders. We also provide a design and build service. We currently work with an experienced designer who can create a home customised to your dreams. Jack also has an eye for detail, practicality, and functionality. Together, we believe we can create your thoughts to become reality.

While he has worked on all scales of homes from the small to the large, he really enjoys the opportunity to work on architectural homes where he can indulge in his love of fine finishes. Jack and the Dewhirst construction team have built several unique high end projects that demanded an eye for detail and precise workmanship. Our team is hardworking and pride ourselves in doing the job it should be.

Jack prides himself on being easy to work with, reliable, and transparent with his clients. From the beginning of a build to the end, he is happy to talk over any details to make sure every aspect of each home meets the needs and expectations of the new homeowner.

He is a builder ready to go above and beyond to satisfy his customers and create a home that will stand for generations. With a keen eye for quality and timeless construction, nothing pleases him more than achieving the desired result, on time, for satisfied clients.​

“Almost anyone could knock up a house really, but it takes a skilled tradesman to actually craft one. The finishing is key.”

- Jack​

Over the past 12 months we have used Dewhirst Construction for: the re-design and renovations within our office block, concrete work alongside our hatchery building and design and build of a new pump shed. We have found Jack and his team very professional, helpful and pleasant to deal with. Their workmanship is of a high standard, nothing was a problem and all projects came within budget.

For a quality job done right, we highly recommend Dewhirst Construction and look forward to using them again in the future.
