About Us




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.

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.

Project Manager

Rob Saunders is a very calculated man, in more ways than one. Quantity Surveying is a complex, precise, and integral part of any building project.

Rob grew up in Wanaka and after qualifying in his field and exploring the world on a two year OE, he spent the majority of his career in Dunedin, working for larger building companies then latterly contracting his services to smaller builders.

As RenoMasters business expanded, Rob joined the team full-time.

The addition of Rob ensures that your home renovation will be more accurately costed as well as providing expert knowledge on project management and attention to detail which, in turn, means a more streamlined renovation.


Office Manager

Lynette McMullan is a valuable member of the RenoMasters team.

Her meticulous organisational, accounting and administration skills keeps the boys on their toes and the books in order.

Having a finger on the pulse on all aspects of the business takes a lot of pressure off the team enabling them to build and not be bogged down with paper work.

Lynette works tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure that all facets of the business run smoothly.

Lynette is the glue for the builders, contractors and customers!


Originally from Germany, Etienne Hornbacher first came to New Zealand in 2010 as an exchange student and lived in Napier. Back in Germany he started a Bio engineering degree.

However, after 2 years he decided it wasn't for him and returned to Napier and his girlfriend, as they had maintained a (very) long distance relationship.

They relocated to Queenstown where both Etienne and his girlfriend worked at Mitre 10. He went on to be a Hammer Hand and apprentice for a local building company. During his time in Queenstown Etienne worked on high-end residential builds averaging 4-6 million. In April 2018 Etienne married his high school sweetheart and they moved to Dunedin so Etienne could join our team.



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, 2 dogs and more recently the addition of their daughter.  Steffan is super excited to be part of the RenoMasters team.



Kobi Peckowski migrated from Poland as a teenager with his family, initially to Christchurch, before moving to Dunedin where after helping his parents renovate their house, went on to complete his apprenticeship in Carpentry/Building. His partner soon followed him to Dunedin. The recent addition of their son makes them now a family of three.

Kobi’s building experience ranges from renovations, extensions, new builds, insurance repairs and rebuild and light commercial work.

Kobi is a talented sportsman; judo (medallist), multiple half marathon runner and loves running, football, boxing, and weightlifting. He is a talented musician - played bass & electric guitar in bands, is a song writer, plus he enjoys rebuilding and repairing cars.

Whilst speaking fluent English Kobi can also speak Hebrew and Polish, making him RenoMasters most diverse multi-lingual team member.



Chris Johnson joined the RenoMasters team at the start of 2021 after moving from Blenheim with his young family.

In Blenheim Chris worked mainly on high end residential new builds, renovations and remote access builds in the Marlborough sounds.

Chris will soon be finishing his apprenticeship to become a fully qualified carpenter. Chris has a great attention to detail and is demonstrating strong and quality renovation building skills.

When not at work Chris enjoys mountain biking around some of the fantastic tracks in Dunedin plus spending time with his two young girls and partner.



Luke Martin was born and raised in Dunedin. Growing up, his family introduced him to many hobbies such as; hunting, fishing and winter sports. Luke attended Otago Boys High School and was very active with sports playing; Volleyball, Basketball and Football.  His favourite subject at school was woodwork so naturally he felt choosing to pursue a career along this path felt natural. After leaving school he went straight on to completing the Carpentry course at Otago Polytechnic before starting his apprenticeship, which he will complete over the next year. Luke is demonstrating strong practical building skills and gets on well with all members of the team.



Blair McKenzie was born in Dunedin but spent his teenage years and finished school in Australia, before moving back to NZ to further his study. It was whilst undertaking a practical hands-on job that he found his “calling” and from here he decided to embark on a career in carpentry.  Although Blair is still completing his apprenticeship, he has a can-do attitude and is adding many valuable practical skills to the very talented RenoMasters team.  Blair’s other lifelong passion is basketball and plays competitively for Dunedin Mid-City Magic.
