Stalwart Construction Ltd (SCL) has been servicing the greater Christchurch area for over 10 years, and is based in the Eastern Suburbs.

We are a team of highly skilled builders and sub-contractors lead by director Colin Satherley, a qualified Licensed Building Practitioner (LBP), who has been in the building industry for over 30 years.  Our team is experienced in all areas of domestic building (Renovations, Extensions, Re-Cladding and New Builds), as well as light commercial (bar/restaurant and shop fit out).

With the earthquake of 2010 and subsequent events, Stalwart Construction became accredited with Stream (Tower Insurance) and Fletchers EQR, completing emergency repairs through to full remedial work under insurance and also for those who were cash settled.

As a family-run home-based business, we are free of sales’ people and expensive offices and we pride ourselves on being transparent. We clearly understand the risks and rewards associated with building and hence focus solely on providing  you with an excellent service and quality finish. Our company culture is such that we focus on you our client and give you the opportunity to talk directly with our qualified builder or Project Manager at anytime to answer any of your concerns, and also help guide you in the right direction.

Stalwart Construction was started when we realised that there was a void in the industry that just wasn’t being full-filled. Building companies would promise the world but seldom deliver  on it, money was the main driving factor for promises that were never full-filled. Hence Colin with wife Lou set out to change these low standards, we realised by cutting down on all the additional fluff  we managed to keep our overheads low and manage variations with ease passing the savings onto our clients and their budget.

Our main goal moving forward is to provide you with QUALITY work and the best possible SERVICE we can offer at the most COMPETITIVE prices in the industry.

Lou Satherley

Spending most of my working life in the Fitness industry, I now work on the systems, processes and marketing of Stalwart Construction. I am across all the admin and paper work and make sure that everything is running smooth. I absolutely love working with clients, joining them on their journey to build a new home is just awesome!

Naturally one of my main interest is keeping fit, other interests include gardening, badminton, and I enjoy a glass of red wine with friends and family.

Colin Satherley

I was awarded a National Certificate in Carpentry in January 2010 to recognize the thirty-plus years I have spent in the building industry. Born in Blenheim, I lived in Christchurch since a young adult. Over this time I have worked for various different builders on new builds and renovations, then one day I decided to become self-employed.

In my  spare time, I love to play the guitar, spend time with family, and play a bit of golf.

After spending my adult working years in the printing trade, I made a decision to switch careers as I felt it was time for a change.  Being the sort of person who is always making things and landscaping my own property, it seemed a natural progression to enter into the building trade.  Starting my apprenticeship SCL in 2014, I am on my way to become qualified.

In my leisure time I spend time mountain biking, with my young family, and doing artwork.

Russell Conor

Before I became a builder I was a professional life guard working at QEII. In 2013 I decide to leave my swimming career behind and started working for Stalwart Construction by signing on to do their building Apprenticeship through he certified builders ITAB programme.

I love spending my time outdoors mostly, enjoying activities such as kayaking, surfing and walking the dog.
