ABL Invercargill

Amalgamated Builders has an extensive history with over 40 years of construction experience in New Zealand, starting in Invercargill and spreading to four branches across the South Island.

ABL has its roots in G.R. Hill Ltd, started in 1961 by born-and-bred Invercargill builder Graeme Hill.  When Graeme won the Tiwai Point Aluminium Smelter contract in 1972, it was clear the company needed to expand.Hill went into partnership with another Invercargill builder, Steve Farrant, and Amalgamated Builders Limited opened its doors.

Today, the Invercargill operation is the largest construction firm in the city, and continues to have a strong loyal core of trades people and management staff.

Our expertise of regional conditions affecting construction, team attitude, and close working relationships in the community, combined with the most advanced building techniques and materials, has given ABL Invercargill the edge on numerous major high-profile construction projects. Projects the firm has managed span the retail, healthcare, education and public amenities sector, including  BNZ regional developments, H&J Smith store upgrade, Southern District Health Board projects, Southern Institute of Technology projects, Mega Mitre 10 site redevelopment, Ministry of Education regional projects, new Placemakers and Opus House.  

Our heritage stems from a commitment to building long-lasting relationships with our clients, based on trust and mutual respect. We promise to deliver on every job in a cost-effective, timely manner, whatever challenges come our way, and we always work as a team to ensure the end result meets everyone’s expectations.
