ABOUT


Dunedin born and bred, Derek is a multi-skilled tradesman who originally gained his trade in Joinery/Cabinet Maker. After his apprenticeship, Derek went on to gain many skills - not only in the finer trade of Joinery, but gained experience in the skilled trade of Carpentry. He is a fully qualified crafts-person specialising in both disciplines.

Derek developed a keen eye for detail, strong project management skills and a passion for high quality workmanship early in his career. He is committed to providing a high level of quality workmanship, project management and customer service and communication to every job our company has the privilege to be involved in – from the building of classic first homes to executive commercial projects.

At Derek Lester Building, we specialise in carpentry but are also joiners that install shop fittings. We also have experience working with historic buildings. To find out more about the work of our carpenters and joiners in Dunedin, please see our list of services and portfolio of work.

We are Licensed Building Practitioners.
