In 2011, Patrick McCarthy, who began working as an apprentice with both Bruce and Colin in 2000, partnered with Colin to take FarmBuild to the next level in both service and what the company could offer. Once FarmBuild’s lead foreman, Patrick has now returned to his Central Otago farm which is the base for FarmBuild South Limited.

FarmBuild’s process is entirely hands-on and much different to that of its competitors. While other building companies will use “city” foremen and contractors who are accustomed only to residential and commercial projects, everybody in the FarmBuild team is a rural building specialist.

That means FarmBuild understands country life. The buildings designed by the company take into account every facet of rural living and working – from heating, fires, and power outages, to stock flow and stock handling.

Staying on top of modern farming practices is integral to FarmBuild’s process and its ability to give every client their desired outcome.
