About Us

John Thompson Builders is a family owned local building company based in Marlborough, NZ. John started the business in 1988 and gained a strong reputation for quality in all builds with a focus towards high-end residential. Both his sons, Simon & Mark, served their apprenticeships, worked side by side with him for many years and since April 2011 they co-own the company. 

With our experience in the local Building Industry we have built strong relationships with sub-contractors.  These relationships allow us to work efficiently and effectively to meet time frames and quality requirements that we strive for and our clients’ desire. Simon or Mark directly oversee any major project we undertake to ensure this is met.

It remains a priority to our Company that we retain the same principals and quality to all our work whether high-end residential, commercial or smaller alterations.



Our aim is to reduce the impact building has on the environment by using eco-friendly products and recycle waste as much as we can. 

By using sustainable products we can build better and warmer houses and reduce our carbon footprint at the same time. 

We have recently added new wheelie bins to  our yard to help us recycle waste collected on all our building sites. Approximately 40% of all building material can be recycled including roofing metal, cardboard boxes, plastic wrapping, glass etc.

It has always been important to us to look beyond building amazing house and we made it now our mission to reduce the amount of building waste ending up on our landfill and recycle as much as we can.
