About John Hamilton Construction
John was born and bred in Canterbury. As a young man he enjoyed several ski seasons in Colorado USA as a ski guide after which he turned his hand to building, starting his career with an apprenticeship in Los Angeles. It was here he honed his passion for California bungalows and “New England” and classic colonial style architecture prevalent in the US.
On his return to his hometown of Christchurch, he setup his own construction business in 1991 following his passion for character homes. Many of his clients not only had character homes themselves but also property portfolios that required renovations and maintenance.
