RenoMasters - WHO WE ARE
With a growing team, our integrated management and build approach strives to optimise all aspects of your project, which starts by asking the right questions.
RenoMasters was formed to deliver building project management solutions for residential and property investment clients. Unlike large project management companies, we work on a small number of projects at any given time to ensure each project receives the focus it deserves, for the best possible results. We focus on operational design that works, delivering thoughtful, cost-effective solutions. We may engage subcontractors to perform services on your behalf, including subcontractors that are related companies. We note that RenoMasters Ltd is a related company of Click Property Management.
We are Registered Master Builders and Licensed Building Practitioners.

Steffan Lewis hales from a small coastal town in Wales called Fishguard but he proudly now calls Dunedin home, for a few reasons. Steffan stems from a rugby mad family and has been playing rugby since he was 3 years old. It was a family holiday to New Zealand in 2017 for the Lions rugby tour where he fell in love with New Zealand and decided to stay. So, after saying goodbye to his family at Christchurch airport he secured a carpentry job with a local building company (through playing rugby). This company took him through to Queenstown where he was building high spec houses, before he decided to move to Dunedin in 2019 to be with his partner Georgia, his two daughters and 2 dogs. Steffan is super excited to be part of the RenoMasters team.
