Building with Confidence since 1950

McIntosh Group

Award Winning 4th Generation Family Business

The McIntosh name has been synonymous with building excellence in the Canterbury region since the 1950’s. Owner and founder of McIntosh Builders Limited, Alastair McIntosh, worked alongside his father, Colin who was a second-generation builder himself, on local construction projects and major development projects.

In 2002 Alastair’s son John joined the company, forming and now leading the busy Commercial Construction Division.

Today, the McIntosh Group has grown exponentially, with a team of 40 highly qualified permanent staff and multiple generations of family working in all the divisions – Residential, Commercial, Precast and Painting.

The Group is quietly scooping up awards and creating architectural feats in some of the biggest signature projects in NZ, but never turning down the small projects that they started with.  

Each project they take on, big or small, receives the same quality workmanship, personal service and commitment to meeting deadlines. As an established, multi-generational company with strong family values, they strive to build long-term relationships with all of their clients.
