I have been in the building industry for 20+ years with over 10 years as a self-employed builder on smaller projects.

Shane ManzoneProject Manager
I have worked in the building industry for the past 20 years and have built new homes over the last 15 years. I'm a certified builder and take great pride in managing and building new homes for Kiwi families. The most rewarding part of my job is handing over the keys to the new home owner. I enjoy spending time with my family on the weekends and racing motocross.
Mike FridayPlanning Adviser
Owning my own company had always been a dream of mine. I had worked for numerous housing companies and knew that I had the right ideas, determination, and drive to make the building process easier. I am greatly supported by my family and staff who also share the same values. Friday Homes specialises in residential housing, multi-unit town housing and new subdivisions - there is simply no job too big or too small. I enjoy getting involved in community based activities, travelling with my family and attending sports games with my two young boys.
Rich BarrowProject Manager
I have been in the building industry for 20 years, with qualifications in timber joinery and building. After completing my qualifications I moved to London gaining more valuable experience as a site manager working on high end residential properties. Since returning to Wellington 5 years ago, I have been project managing the construction of residential homes. When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with my family, snowboarding, going to the gym, playing golf and squash.

Here at Friday Homes we have an extensive network of experienced builders and tradespeople who work with us as a partnership enabling us to produce quality work, we’re simply building better.

Todd YoudvaldProject Manager
I am a qualified builder with over 28 years’ experience in residential and semi commercial construction. I have trained-up 4 apprentices over the years, all of which are now running their own companies in various aspects of the construction industry. I have been in construction management for the last 10 years and enjoy all aspects and challenges the job entails. In my free time I enjoy getting outdoors to the back country hunting and fishing, with the odd game of golf.
My experience in the building industry is fairly new but since I started at Friday Homes, I have been enjoying learning how the different steps and processes in building a house work, and look forward to hopefully being able to build my own home someday soon. Finance has been a passion of mine since leaving school and attending university. I enjoy the variety of my job, the people we meet and the positive results we produce. Out of work, the majority of my time is spent with my two girls who are 11 and 8 and heaps of fun, I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
