About Us

Isles Construction has been in business in the Manawatu region for over 40 years and is owned and operated by the Isles family of Palmerston North. Over the years the company has gained a proven and respected track record for providing consistently high-quality workmanship and has been the winner of multiple Registered Master Builders awards. Isles Construction also set up a branch in Christchurch in 2014 to cater to the wider Canterbury region and its vicinity.

The business currently employs 60 staff including our quantity surveying and project management teams, administration department and our onsite carpentry staff. Isles Construction has recently completed multi-varied projects, ranging from social housing for Kainga Ora Homes and Communities to commercial projects such as Group housing for Soho Group Limited and school modernisations for Ministry of Education to name a few. Isles Construction has worked with major clients that include the Manawatu District Council, NZ Fire Service, NZ Defence Force, Ministry of Justice, Department of Corrections, and Massey University as well as private clients for residential projects. Isles Construction is proud to have contributed to the two iconic commercial buildings in Palmerston North – The Bryant Building and Square Centre.
