A bit about Building Traders

Building Traders consists of a local, close-knit team of experts. With plenty of experience in the building sector, we recognize the dangers of ill fitting, dodgy or decommissioned building materials. Thus, both our new and recycled products are all carefully selected by us before we sell them on to you. We personally inspect each piece before resale to ensure they are of the utmost quality and are best suited to your needs for whatever build, renovation or project you have on the go. Come and have a chat with us – we’d love to help you!

Our History

In 1997 Gordon Mc Kenzie started Building Traders across the street on Craig Place. The Business grew and grew and was relocated to our current location at 37 Katere Road. In March of 2018 Peter and Belinda purchased Building Traders from Gordon and have now developed it to what it is today.
