Our Team

  • Marcus Schaw

    Marcus has been building for over 20 years, with experience in NZ and abroad. He started SBL in 2010 after realising his passion for perfection would be better suited to his own company.

  • Sarah Schaw

    Sarah offers support to Marcus and the team with project management and administration. She has a degree in Marketing and Psychology, and has worked in project management for over 18 years.

  • George Hendy

    George joined us in January 2016. He has expansive knowledge in everything from farm buildings to new builds, and a great ability to make a job flow seamlessly. George is our concrete expert, and takes on our most challenging projects. George's attention to detail and methodical approach to building is reflected in the results he achieves.

  • MacKenzie Oliver
    Foreman/Qualified Builder

    Macca joined the team early 2018 and is CHB born and raised, loves his footy. Macca completed his apprenticeship in April 2021, and we are excited to see what he brings to his new status!

  • Frank Lochore
    Foreman/ Late Stage Apprentice

    Frank joined our team through the Gateway Program when he was a student at Napier Boys High School. Frank's dedication and passion to all things physical show in his workmanship and his ability to pick things up quickly - we also see these skills applied to his rugby!

  • Brent Tate
    Foreman/ Late Stage Apprentice

    Brent joined our team a couple of days before the Covid-19 Lockdown, but was able to show us that he is a real asset to the team in the post Covid climate. Brent is Australian by birth, but we don't hold that against him. He is currently completing an Adult Apprenticeship and fills his down time with family and CHB Premier Cricket.

  • Ella Jonasen
    Qualified Builder

    Ella joined our team mid 2023. Ella has always enjoyed the outdoors, and after work experience in the building industry decided after her year 12 at Napier Girls she would carry out her apprenticeship. Ella was qualified in November 2022, and we are excited to have her as part of our team.

  • Max Thomas
    Qualified Builder

    Max joined our team mid 2023 after travelling through Central America on a 6 month surf trip. Max started his career at uni studying Resource and Environmental Planning, but decided that the office was no place for him. He became a qualified builder in 2021, and spent the next couple of years with the same company he completed his apprenticeship in Auckland. We're stoked to have Max as part of the team.

  • Reuben Lundy

    After finishing school in 2019, Reuben had the guts to apply for a qualified role we advertised and impressed us with his passion to build – so much so that we agreed to take him on as an apprentice even though we weren’t looking for one! Reuben had spent time on building sites growing up and more recently labouring for building companies.

  • Liam Roberts

    Liam joined our team part way through 2022, via the Gateway program. Liam has a keen eye for detail, and an exceptional work ethic. He is currently completing his apprenticeship.
