BuildSmart Services

BuildSmart, one of the Best Dunedin Building Companies

BuildSmart is a well-known building company based in Dunedin that provides services in renovations, new builds and painting. We are here to assist you in every part of the build process, from helping you test the feasibility of your project to assisting you with council requirements. Our viability reports will ensure that you stay within budget and avoid unnecessary delays during the project.

BuildSmart is owned and managed by Glen Williamson and Shane Crossan. Glen Williamson is himself a qualified builder. As a property investor, he realised there was no one with both building and property investment experience who could provide competent advice on all aspects of building maintenance, renovation and upgrades. Neither could show investors how to develop their properties by subdividing and building an additional dwelling or simply adding to existing houses. He set about filling that gap in the market and, in just seven years, has built up a strong reputation as the go-to building company for property investors. He assembled a team of highly qualified and experienced builders and painters who have made what BuildSmart is today.

One important member of the BuildSmart team is Shane Crossan, a Director/Project Manager at BuildSmart. Now a qualified builder with over 15 years of experience, he is very efficient and organised on and off the tools, making him the perfect person to oversee the BuildSmart team.

Shane has been with BuildSmart since 2014, previously owning his own company for seven years, where he specialised in residential new builds. Shane is a fantastic communicator with all trades and clients, ensuring that all jobs run smoothly and efficiently.
