Gene Gibson 
BCITO Qualified, NZCB Certified

Welcome to Coast Built Waiheke Limited, Waiheke Locals of 30+ years. We first founded Coast Built in 2015 after completing a national trade qualification in Carpentry here on Waiheke Island. 

Since the beginning of trading, we have focussed on small-medium sized projects such as Renovations, Extensions, Retaining Walls, Re-modelling, Alternative Building Solutions (small spaces) and Bathrooms (new and renovations). However our skills and previous experience has  seen us work outside of these perimeters, having had experience in large scale Concrete Driveways/prep, Hardscape projects working with unique hardwood species, Re-roofing, Custom Furniture pieces and Earthworks. 

We believe that Using local Tradespeople such as ourselves at Coast Built, especially on Waiheke Island, is a testament in how smoothly the project goes and timeframes being met. Having good relationships with locals in supply of concrete, materials and organising sub contractors when you need them is something that only time and experience can build, which is why we are a favourable option for our clients. 

Over the 30+ years of living on Waiheke, We've built up a strong trade network in all aspects of construction and have a professional, reliable and quality group of sub-contractors that we work closely with to support a successful project.

Our core values are to be communicative and punctual supported by quality workmanship. 

To give our clients piece of mind, all of our work is backed by the Halo 10 year Residential Guarantee as part of our Certified Builders Association qualification.

Recent Projects



"Being new to Waiheke Island, developing a relationship with skilled local tradespeople was of paramount importance to us.  

With a number of different projects at hand, we needed somebody who could not only listen to and implement our ideas but who could also develop those ideas and provide sound advice based on their experience. 

We were fortunate to be introduced to Gene Gibson, who fit the bill perfectly. 

We are very pleased with Gene's attention to detail and the quality of his work. 

Over the course of a number of projects we've developed a strong relationship based on trust and would recommend him to anyone needing a reliable, high quality builder."

"Recently we contacted Gene to ask if he could give us a quote for some renovation work we needed done on our property. We were very impressed at his prompt and professional assessment and advice and gave him the job. 

He delivered the work on time, on budget and to a high level of workmanship. And always with a smile. Well done Gene we look forward to working with you again soon."
