Hi, I’m Mark Taylor. I was raised in the beautiful Bay Of Plenty, spending my younger years living in Whakatane.

With outdoors, tourism and culture on my doorstep, I found myself spending most of my weekends hunting and fishing with my family. For a young Kiwi, I was in my element.

Attending Whakatane High School from 2001 to 2005 was the highlight of my schooling years. Taking a liking to wood tech class, I found myself building all types of items during lunchtime and class time hours.

In my final months of school, it was a given for myself what I would choose to do when I left school.

In 2006 I enrolled at a Pre-Trade Carpentry Course in Whakatane called Trade Education. Graduating from this course set me up for the workforce.

Throughout my working career as a Carpenter, I was very lucky to have had the opportunity to work in both the Construction and Residential industry.
Through this work, I gained great knowledge of the wider building sector.

After spending 4 years in Auckland, building and surviving the challenging recession, I moved back to the Bay, building in Mount Maunganui. This was the perfect place as the building industry was growing fast.

We’d like to thank Mark and his team for a truly first class job. From the moment we met through to the date of completion Mark provided concise, clear solutions for our vision of our entertainment area. His team were a reflection of him; always communicating and keeping check on our views of progress. They were punctual which is important to meeting a deadline and the workmanship was exceptional. Nothing was left to chance and the result was probably better than we had hoped for. I have now recruited Mark for a business renovation we are doing and would have no hesitation in recommending his services.

Keep up the great work Mark.

"I would highly recommend MLT Builders for your next project!"

Mark and his team completed a full re-clad and interior renovation of our 1970s architectural home.  His building knowledge, project management skills and team work enabled us to complete our project on time with a challenging finish date.

Mark was very effective at accommodating changes and managing these throughout the renovation.

I think Mark’s strongest skill as a business owner is his honest and direct communication.

I would highly recommend MLT Builders for your next project.

"Mark and his team were total professionals throughout the job. "

Mark and his team were total professionals throughout the job.

His communication made the process of renovating my bathroom completely stress free, and his knowledge of the building industry ensured that I knew I had the right people on the job.

I wouldn't even consider using anyone else for any building work that I may have in the future.

Thanks Mark!
