Meet the Way Builders Team:

Mike Way

Has been building since 1986.   He has both Trade Certificate in Carpentry and Joinery, and Advanced Trade Certificate in Carpentry. He has both LBP Carpentry license as well as Site 2 License.

Whilst on his OE in England, Mike helped manage large projects with varied contractors.    He also managed to close a London underground station by leaving his battery drill on the platform looking like a bomb!

Mike was the Certified Builders Regional President from 2014-2016. Mike remains on the committee which keeps him on the pulse of current council and legislative building procedures.

Under Mike's Presidency, the Tauranga BuildIt initiative came to fruition, with it being the only building based expo in the Western Bay of Plenty - check it out here.

Steve Way

Has been building since 1995.   He has National Certificate in Carpentry and also completed an 8000 hour apprenticeship in Furniture Making giving him an exceptional eye for detail and finishing.    Steve holds both LBP Carpentry License and Site 1 License.  

Whilst on his OE in England, Steve worked for Allen Build with the contract to work on Buckingham Palace, Clarence House and Kensington Palace.  Princess Diana’s dressing gown hook now features in his Ensuite.

Carl Bourke

I had been a bricklayer for 15 years working in residential and commercial projects.

I've enjoyed seeing the growth of Tauranga having arrived in the Bay of Plenty from Wanganui in 1996.

For the last 5 years l had been working for a well established house transporting company but when given the opportunity to start an iTAB Carpentry Apprenticeship with Way Builders, there was only one thing to do: Get stuck into it!

Welcome to the team Carl!

Luke Mannix

I went to Tauranga Boys College and while there I completed a year long pre-trade course which required us to build fully live-able cabins.

I really enjoyed this kind of work and approached Way Builders to help them out during Term Breaks.

When I left Tauranga Boys College in October 2016, I worked with my dad as an electrician but after 3 months knew that I preferred to work on the whole house build.

When I'm not at work, I enjoy playing hockey, mountain biking and restoring my old Toyota Starlet.
