Working within the construction industry since a young age has helped me gain knowledge and understanding of the processes involved in building that perfect home and the importance of customer satisfaction. Being a part of the planning team here at Friday Homes gives me an opportunity to be a part of making our clients dreams become a reality. Outside of work I enjoy spending my weekends with family and friends at the local speedway track where I race most Saturday nights over summer.

Working in the construction industry for most of my working career has helped me achieve my own successful build. Through this process I have gained in depth knowledge of the processes involved, and have witnessed first-hand the rewards of building your own home. The process is easy when you have the right team behind the wheel. 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.

Mike FridayPlanning Adviser

0800 Friday Homes

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.

Originally from the UK I’ve been living in NZ for the last 12 years, recently I qualified as a Quantity Surveyor from Weltec so I have quite a varied knowledge of the industry.
