Jack, Builder


Qualified Builder

Meet Jack - aka "Mr. Details" – he’s all about doing it once, and doing it right! With 5 years of building experience, Jack is a key member of the S.A.S team.

What drew Jack to S.A.S Builders? The challenge of problem-solving and the opportunity to work on high-end projects using a variety of different materials. As a perfectionist, Jack loves getting into the details and making sure everything is just right.

But Jack's ultimate goal is to put his skills to the test and build his own home one day. With the knowledge and experience he's gaining at S.A.S Builders, we have no doubt he'll make his dream a reality.

We are so lucky to have Jack a part of our team!

Marcel, Builder


Qualified Builder

Introducing Marcel - aka "Mini Mo" - our most recently fully qualified builder with a talent for making everyone laugh!  Marcel is always eager to try new things and isn't afraid to take on a challenge.

It turns out that Marcel's true passion isn't just building - he's also a budding model! During a recent photoshoot, Marcel discovered his talent for striking a pose and working the camera. Who knows, maybe he'll be gracing the cover of Vogue one day!

When he's not busy building or modelling, Marcel can be found fishing on the weekends. With his enthusiasm for his work and recently reaching his goal of becoming a qualified builder, there's no doubt that Marcel is going places - and he'll be sure to bring a smile to everyone's face along the way!



Introducing Ollie - He's joined us here in Franklin after completing his college education at Sacred Heart in Auckland.

Ollie is about to start the 3rd year of his apprenticeship and has a real 'can do' attitude which will take him very far in this industry.

In his spare time he enjoys playing rugby, fishing and spending time with his 2 English bulldogs.

Ollie is always keen to learn, aims for excellence in all the work he completes and we are thrilled to be a part of his journey towards becoming a fully qualified builder.

Brand Manager

Growing up as the daughter of a builder, Steph developed a passion for renovating old villas and bungalows. She was always taught to pay attention to the small details and was thrilled when she started working with the S.A.S team to discover they also hold the same high regard for getting the little things perfect.

As a born and bred Franklin-ite, Steph makes every effort to support local businesses whenever possible. She loves our beautiful region and is always extra excited to get out and about, taking photos of our new builds, renovations and meeting up with our clients.

Steph is a great asset to our team and makes it her top priority to ensure continued growth and expansion for S.A.S Builders.
