Our company

Established by Anthony Leighs in 1995, Leighs Construction has grown into a multi-million dollar business. Our South Island operations are managed from our head office in Christchurch, with our Auckland branch having opened in 2015. Our wealth and breadth of knowledge and accumulated expertise enables us to deliver construction projects across a number of sectors, including health, commercial, retail, primary industry, agriculture, education and government, both at home in New Zealand and overseas.

We are very proud of our reputation for being specialists who are known for producing intelligent and innovative solutions. We see productive expansion as a certainty and are a progressive organisation, constantly seeking exciting growth opportunities and rise eagerly to challenges. Our high calibre, professional teams demonstrate strong leadership skills and are not locked into the old paradigm. We constantly aim to be the best.

We have a reputation for completing complex and challenging projects to the highest industry standards, safely, on time and within budget, even under the most extreme environmental and operating conditions. Our clients tell us we are great to deal with, are problem solvers, and that we deliver quality projects. We work in partnership with them, with other partners and the supply chain, and approach all our projects focused on the best possible outcomes.

By building strong relationships with our clients, we ensure efficient and effective systems are in place for every job and that communication is clear and understood.

We employ hardworking, dedicated and motivated trades people directly, and have developed systems and the ability to recruit and accommodate large numbers of staff internationally, with a current focus on the Philippines. This labour strategy is appropriate for this market and we believe it will enable us to deliver projects at the right price.
