When you choose to build with Sentinel Homes Taranaki you get the benefit of Andrew’s 17 years of industry experience as a Designer and Project Manager. Andrew began his career working for some of the best architects in New Plymouth before launching his own architectural practice specialising in residential new builds and renovations. A move to London saw his career take a shift into project management where he oversaw the design, development and installation of urban greening and vertical living-walls in Greater London, the United Kingdom and beyond.
Back in New Zealand Andrew was instrumental in the expansion of a growing pre-cast concrete company. He worked with some of the largest construction companies in New Zealand on various civil, commercial and residential projects around the North Island, project-managing, overseeing quality management and heading up the design and drafting processes.
Andrew is excited to be back designing and building in the residential sector, this time operating a family-run business alongside Julia.
Julia’s passion has always been people, having worked in the social services and not-for-profits sector for 16 years. Working in both New Plymouth and London she used her skills in event planning and project co-ordination to help start up, support and oversee a number of professional and charitable projects.
Returning to New Zealand saw Julia turn her focus to their young family, while also establishing a local community project supporting and feeding families facing difficult circumstances.
Andrew and Julia are both Taranaki born and bred and know people love this region for the fantastic lifestyle and ability to own your own little patch of New Zealand. They would love to hear from you to discuss your building plans.
From the minute we walked into the Sentinel Homes Waikato show home it was love at first sight.
We shopped around half a dozen show homes in the Waikato. The design and finishing of the Sentinel Homes' show home blew us away and we knew we’d found our builder.
We wanted someone we could trust and Hayden from Sentinel Homes, Wellington was very open and transparent right from the start.
Sentinel were 100% transparent about the process. Their communication was excellent, they have a really great app that keeps you up-to-date.
Sentinel Homes don’t cut any corners – they take care of your home for the long term.
Each morning when we woke up, we could go in to the Sentinel app and check the latest uploaded photos of the work on site
We made a few changes, and it just was not a problem. We didn’t have to compromise.
We always felt in control of the build, due to the open lines of communication.
The Sentinel app makes building your own home so easy. I’ve already shown it to many of my friends and family.
Let’s get together for a free, no-pressure meeting with one of our team, at your place or ours.
We can't wait to hear your ideas!
