About Kawa

The Kawa Story

Upon leaving school, I made the decision to enter the building industry as an apprentice bricklayer. Not to restrict myself to the one trade. I completed my apprenticeship with a respected builder, renowned for his quality and customer relations. I worked with the same company until 2012, when I decided to for fill a burning desire to travel.

 

Traveling took me to many far and wide places. One of which was Australia, where I continued to work within the commercial sector. After over a year of learning news skills and techniques, and how the other side of the industry operate. I decided to continue my travels, and head to New Zealand. When traveling new Zealand I became fascinated by the country and the history of the Maori traditions.

 

After further travels I then returned home, and entered back into work life. After several months of working for other people, and thinking this is not for me. I decided to go at it alone. Needing a new name, and something that was personal and that stands out.

I came up with Kawa Construction. The word Kawa is shortened from the word Kawakawa pounamu. Pounamu is a greenstone native to New Zealand and held in high regards within the Maori traditions, and is said to bring luck when only offered as a gift. Which I have worn around my neck since traveling new Zealand, and now I offer Kawa Construction’s services.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

So pleased with this company! We have had exterior and interior work undertaken by Kawa. The work is first rate. We have quite a few more jobs and would not dream of using any other company now we have found Kawa. Thank you again Karl.
