About the company  - L-and-M-500

Lance Irving – Managing Director & Owner of Irving Builders

Following a farming background in rural South Canterbury, Lance entered the building industry at the age of 17.

His 25 plus years’ experience has seen him working extensively throughout the USA, North America, the UK and Europe and of course New Zealand – predominantly in Canterbury.

He believes that communication is the key ingredient to a successful building project. It is imperative that you, as the client, can discuss the challenging issues with your builder and resolve any issues clearly and transparently.

To be the “Best We Can” comes with constant improvement, innovation and understanding clearly our “why”.

For Lance and the team, our WHY is the challenge to always be looking for ways to improve and develop our systems operationally with an extreme focus on you, our customer.

We have the experience to help you from the start, working with you on your concept, advising you of the cost of your project, work with you to achieve your goals in line with that budget and delivering you a high quality new build or renovation that we are all proud of.

That’s what working with Irving Builders promises to deliver.
