Serving the Canterbury area with new residential builds, alterations, additions, repairs,

The team of G&D Russell Builders Ltd is made up of experienced, talented and well respected builders.


Owner of G&D Russell Builders Ltd has been a builder for upwards of 46 years. While he may be the boss-man, Graham can be found on the tools on site more often than not. Graham is not just good with his hands on the worksite, he is also good with his feet…on the lake barefoot skiing behind the boat. He is a keen mountain biker enjoying many different tracks around Canterbury and Wanaka.  He also enjoys spending time with his two boys.


When he’s not building dream homes or tinkering with machines, Shane is a proud husband and father of two.


Originally from the depths of Dunedin, and a proud father of two, Kyle is the latest to join the G&D Russell Builders Ltd team.
A passionate builder, Kyle is also busy renovating his own home.


Well respected builder and Grandad of 4, Kevin enjoys travelling and is a keen golf enthusiast. He has worked for Graham and Denise for 23 years now, and is a treasured family member.


Married with three children, Mark spends a lot of his spare time on projects for his kids, he specializes in  waterslides.  He also enjoys trail riding on his motorbike.


Keeping the G&D Russell Builders Ltd ship on course is Denise, wife to Graham. While she would rather spend her days spending time with her sons, playing a guitar or walking her dogs Jake and Stella, most times Denise can be found in the G&D Russell Builders Ltd office keeping projects on track and paperwork to a minimum.
