About Us

Our team at Smith & Sons Ashburton, is led by Paul Cartney. Paul has 20 years experience in the building industry and is a multi award winning Licensed Building Practitioner and a Member of the Master Builders Association. 
Paul enjoys renovations and extensions and loves the challenge as they require you to look outside the square. Being able to project manage renovations and extensions from the initial consultation and drafting of designs, right through to the final stages of construction, allows us to provide our valued customers with an easy solution for all their building requirements.­­
We believe in supporting local businesses and have successfully developed strong alliances with our local subcontractors.  We know that if we support them they will support us in our endeavour to make our business thrive.
We currently employ seven full time staff. Our business is a family orientated business, having two young girls of our own stands us in good stead to understand what people need when they are planning ahead for their growing families.

Our Simple 3 Step Renovation Process




What People Are Saying

The building crew were just fantastic – hardworking, a lot of fun to have around, and they have given us our dream kitchen and living space. The major work was getting the roofline worked into the existing roof structure, but it all went without a hitch.

- Barbara & Peter

We approached Paul & Anna in January 2010 to renovate our ‘new home to be’ if we were successful in purchasing the farm. The renovation stage 1 would be needed to be started beginning of April and completed in 5 weeks and stage 2 was to be started and completed as soon as possible thereafter. The answer was yes they would make it possible even with this short notice.
The workmanship of Paul and his two builders was as good as we could have expected. The reliability and help we had along the way was great. The team were well organised and kept us informed 100% along the way. We would recommend this team to anyone wishing to renovate or build a new home no matter how big or small. If we were to build or renovate ourselves again we would choose Paul and his team without a doubt. Good luck to Paul and his team for his business going forward.

- Wendy and Carl

We can’t thank Paul, Anna and the boys at Smith & Sons enough for making this whole move possible for us. Paul and the boys were with us every step of the way making our dreams and visions become a reality. A simple fitout in the newly constructed part of the original structure merged into something completely different in practice. We realised that there were things that worked on paper but as soon as we physically saw things we learnt that they would not work for the business in the long run. Smith & Sons Ashburton was right behind us all the way and made sure that everything we needed changed was done so to a very high standard. The input that Paul and the team gave us and suggestions for improvement in making the changes needed was invaluable and we would not have this brilliant structure to work out of today if it was not for them and their commitment to the build. It is a wonderful place to work from and we are extremely proud to have such great creators construct it and bring our vision to reality.
