A journey of experience
Scott Construction Ltd has an impressive 44 year history.
It all started when 25 year old builder Kevin Scott established his first company, Kevin LA Scott Limited, in 1970. Growing from a team of two to nine, the residential building company became Scott Home Builders Limited in 1980. In 1991, Kevin added commercial construction and the business became Scott Construction Ltd.
Experienced builder and project manager Justin Candish joined the company as General Manager in 2007, buying into the company in 2008. Justin is currently on the Master Builders Association local Executive.
The company’s commitment to the Nelson region was symbolised by the 2009 relocation to the newly built offices and yard in Nayland Road. Now we are a company of 68 industry professionals, having won 25 Master Builder awards for a range of residential and commercial projects, in the last decade alone.
In 2011, we established The Concrete Company, a Nelson-based concrete placing company, and in 2013 we set up Future-Proof Flooring in Christchurch.
Kevin Scott retired in March 2014, leaving the group of companies in the safe hands of Justin Candish’s team.
Scott Construction Marlborough was established in April 2014, after we employed T H Barnes & Co Ltd’s Blenheim-based workforce after they ceased operations.
Also in 2014, we established Base Excavations Ltd in Nelson, which provides expertise for residential and commercial projects.
And, after a year of exciting growth, we won the Supreme Award, and Large Business Award at the 2014 Nelson Tasman Chamber of Commerce Business Awards.
