Meet John

John Macdonald

John's building career began over 35 years ago with an apprenticeship in Taranaki, while his specialist interest in masonry-construction developed through nearly a decade of building experience in the UK. On returning to New Zealand in 1996, he established JSMB which has since gained an impressive reputation with a portfolio of award-winning buildings. John has been working alongside his team to be one of the best and most reputable building companies ever since.

John is currently the National President of the New Zealand Registered Master Builders Association, having served on both local and national executives for the past 12 years. John's passion is to help create a construction industry which places the greatest emphasis on workmanship of the highest quality, a principle which also forms the cornerstone of JSMB.
