Creating great spaces enhances our lifestyles by providing specifically designed environments at home, at work, and in the community. We do this constantly by asking, listening, and looking for elements that will allow us to design, detail, and create great spaces.
We have a team of professionals that continue the great work Lee Brothers have produced over many decades. Our apprentice programme has produced nationally recognised tradespeople as they benefit from the experience within our team. We capture this within our brand – Created by craftsmen, locally since 1926.
We also enjoy the support of national organisations, Registered Master Joiners and the National Kitchen and Bathroom Assn (NKBA). These organisations contribute to our networks and our learnings providing design training and professional development. Mentoring, training and growth are constants at Lee Brothers.
We are mindful of the heritage that we are custodians of. Alfred Lee established the company in 1926 and not only have generations of the Lee family been involved but many of our Rotorua customers have links to this iconic company. We are proud to continue the legacy.
