About Us

HarbourCity Building Company is owned and managed by Ian Inglis, Jules Lee and Karen Glenister.

As a team that has been working together for over 20 years, Ian, Jules and Karen are a well bonded unit who enjoy each others company and the challenge of the building process.

With experience and expertise across all facets of the building industry your project will be in trustworthy and competent hands.

Building a new home is an exciting and challenging undertaking and needs to be done under the experienced guidance of a professional project management team using a consistent team of qualified sub-contractors for each and every trade. It is also a long process with many decisions and many compliance issues to be addressed. Our approach is comprehensive, individual and specialised, and because we are a small niche building company you will receive one off attention at all times from the people who own and manage the business.

Allow HarbourCity Building Company to take you through the design phase and then through the construction process, and you will be assured of a top quality new home or building project that you are delighted with and proud to call your own.

Leaky homes, untreated framing, litigation, we have all seen the headlines. The building industry has lost credibility to a lot of home owners.

The good news is that the government has now regulated the industry more closely, and accountability will bring the confidence back. The industry has changed, it had to change. HarbourCity have embraced these changes and are professional, experienced, licensed building practitioners that  have the skills to deliver to you a building project that is on time, on budget and code compliant.

If you want a high quality, personalised building contract, give us a call, we are happy to meet on your site to commence discussions about your ideas and dreams.
