Director Newell Hodgson comes from an extensive building and management background – all of which allow BTP to deliver the all encompassing build. He is a Licenced Building Practitioner and Registered Master Builder.

Newell has a passion for building homes and treats each project as if it is his own.

Newell Hodgson has been building in Queenstown since 1998, and set up BTP Construction in 2004 to build some units on Queenstown Hill. Since then he has been involved in many projects with his own company and contracting to others, ranging from multi-million dollar homes to commercial office fit outs.

He has developed and built numerous houses for himself, so he knows what it’s like to be the client and is very aware of what it means to keep to a budget while ensuring the end product is delivered to high quality. He has also project managed multi unit sites and has been responsible for ongoing maintenance of these sites. What does this matter to you? He knows that ongoing maintenance issues can be prevented and/or eliminated at the build stage reducing maintenance issues, and therefore saving you future money.

Newell has a Commerce Degree from Otago University which helps with overseeing all aspects of business within his own company as well as client’s individual jobs and projects.

Newell is also an active member of the Queenstown Volunteer Fire Brigade holding a rank of a Senior Fire Fighter. It is great to work in a team of like-minded peers while giving something back to the community.

If this isn’t enough…as a previous Director of Adventure Works International, Newell has been responsible for logistics on offshore building projects throughout Asia, so he is able to understand and work with different cultures. He knows first hand that different clients have different needs and is able to adapt his processes to make those needs his own.

Through years of experience overseas and within New Zealand, BTP Construction has developed relationships with suppliers and contractors, all of which maintain the quality product that has made BTP a leader in their industry.
