To us, it’s never just a shed.
Each building we provide is more than just a shed or a stable - it’s a practical way of making life easier for you.
Choosing to specialise in farm, equine and lifestyle buildings was a no-brainer for us. The rural kiwi lifestyle is how we grew up and we understand that agriculture is a demanding business.
Working in our beautiful countryside, helping farmers, trainers and lifestylers to better manage their businesses and properties is what we love to do.
Our commitment to you
We’re a close-knit team who run AgBuild like a family business. The crew is hardworking, enthusiastic and completely focussed on quality workmanship.
We’re committed to making the build process as quick and easy as possible for our clients, with minimum disruption, by providing you with a fully personalised, wrap-around service.
Our Complete Care Promise is what makes us different.
We’d love to show you how.
Meet the Team
Matt Skerman - Constuction Manager
Matt enjoyed a typical rural kiwi upbringing and went on to become a qualified and licensed builder.
Seeing a gap in the market, Matt took the opportunity to combine his building experience and passion for the rural lifestyle by setting up AgBuild with his mate, Geoff.
A bit of a perfectionist, Matt is heavily involved in the design process. You’ll find him out and about, leading the crew and ensuring every build is completed to the same high standard.
“It’s never ‘just a shed’ - we’re always creating something that’s customised for the land and requirements of the owner and I love getting it completely spot on.”
Geoff Everton - Business Manager
Geoff has been building ever since leaving school. His career took him to the UK and USA for several years before he returned to New Zealand.
In 2011 he and good friend, Matt, decided to take the leap and start their own business with AgBuild and they’ve never looked back.
Meticulously organised, Geoff takes care of planning projects and liaising with clients and suppliers to ensure the process is as smooth as possible.
“It’s so rewarding to see a project through from the initial idea to design and completion. I’ve really enjoyed meeting some pretty awesome people along the way too.”
Kimmy - Customer Care
Kimmy is our customer care, admin and office management superstar – and that’s why we rely on her to keep everything running like clockwork.
“I enjoy supporting Geoff and Matt to make sure everything runs smoothly and that our clients are happy with the entire process, as well as the end result.”
As a busy mum of two, you’ll often find Kimmy out with the kids at sports and activities around town.
Carl - Foreman
Carl grew up on a rural property, went dairy farming for 9 years, then moved on to become Maintenance and Services Manager at the Mighty River Domain. He brings excellent project management skills to his site work with the AgBuild crew.
“The AgBuild team do a great job of project management, which means we always have a clear brief. The best part of my job is seeing the end product.”
Carl spends his spare time diving and spending time with family.
Micheal - Labourer and Roof Technician
Micheal has lived in Cambridge all his life on his parents horse rehabilitation farm and has a real love of the rural lifestyle. A roll-up-your-sleeves kind of guy, Micheal can be relied on to produce high quality work every time.
"I love my job and working on buildings in a rural setting suits me down to the ground."
Micheal spends his weekends working on motors, deer stalking and fishing.
Justin 'Waka' Somerville
Waka is a skilled, fully qualified builder who has brought his depth of knowledge to our team. He enjoys the AgBuild scene as he likes to work outside, likes working with mates and watching the progress of the build. Outside of work, Waka watches a bit of code, is learning to coach rugby and loves hanging out with family and friends.
A big welcome to our new team member Declan O'Sullivan!
He has a farming background, raised on a dairy farm in Matamata, and completed school at St Pauls Collegiate. Declan has a keen interest in hunting and fly fishing.
His favourite thing about the job is working outside and being busy, so luckily Agbuild is ticking those boxes for him.
