What We Offer

When you’ve been in business for as long as we have you learn a lot about being able to deliver projects on time and within budget, whilst still meeting the expectations of the client.

We have a proven track record of delivering projects on time and are proud of our staff who play such a huge part in this.  Many of our personnel have been with us for close to 10 years and we are one of the largest employers of carpenters in the Manawatu.

Cameron isles - Isles Construction Commercial

Over the life of the company we have completed close to 1000 projects in the Manawatu and lower North Island – from work at Massey University to recently completed seismic strengthening projects in the CBD and Feilding.  We have been associated with many iconic projects such as the new school in Waiouru to the Ezibuy international call centre. It is our mission to exceed expectations and manage budgets and timelines with expertise and experience.

Cameron is the Commercial Manager and he oversees all commercial projects, along with his team of quantity surveyors, project managers, administration and finance staff.


Since the early 1980s we have carried out Ministry of Education work and as such we are very experienced in this field of work. From toilet block upgrades to building an entire new school and everything in between – there aren’t many aspects of education work we haven’t been involved with.

Seismic Strengthening 

A relatively new field of specialist construction – we have been fortunate to have been involved in several major contracts and to date have completed 2 of the largest seismic projects within the Manawatu region.

Siteworks and Excavation

In 2013 we started a separate company to carry out all our site works, excavation, scaffolding and edge protection.  This enables us to keep costs down for clients and ensure constant availability to keep to tight time schedules.

Design and Build

Isles Construction has recently entered the domain of design and build projects, taking them from their inception right through to the completion. Our ability to prepare concept drawings in-house enables us to cut down on predesign timeframes and ensures the client is satisfied with the concept prior to working drawings being prepared. It ensures stability and consistency in both design stage and the build stage of the projects. Throughout the lifecycle of design and build projects, we keep our clients, consultants and subcontractors updated and involved to ensure there are no discrepancies. We not only oversee the design management process but also the construction management of these projects.
