The Hawke's Bay Team

The Hawke's Bay team brings together some of the regions most experienced construction professionals. Their combined portfolio includes residential, commercial, industrial and civil construction projects.

We look forward to working with you.


Geoff Huggett
Construction Supervisor

Having been with Stead Construction from its inception Geoff has been part of all company changes as it has grown. Geoff has a wealth of ‘practical grounded' construction knowledge, together with a lifetime of construction industry working experience. In an ever-changing world of technology, Geoff doesn't get wrapped up in day to day emails and information technology, which allows him the time and brain space to get stuck into what he does best, which is constructing buildings.

Geoff has been the ‘key player' in some of Stead Construction's most notable projects, to which he takes in his stride.

Geoff in his former employment played a major role in taking Company Director Jeremy Stead through his Carpentry apprenticeship.


John Thomson

John prides himself on being a working Foreman with the ability to keep up with and most of the time out shine younger members of staff. John is a straight up and direct approach operator with a keen eye for not having any sort of ‘slackers' on his site, whether this is construction staff or sub-contractors.

John's uncompromising stance on production during the working day and no nonsense attitude has seen him deliver some key results on projects where timing and logistics have been key.


John Deacon

Rain, hail or snow you will not see John anywhere else apart from his given project. John's vast experience within the wider construction industry is second to none and his strive to work and deliver results both for the client and Stead Construction has seen John complete some key projects under all sort of unforeseen circumstances.

John's ability to stay calm and continue to push forward sees him held in very high regard amongst all of the staff at Stead Construction.


Glen Fairbrother

Since joining Stead Construction Glen has gone from one major project to another. Glen has an uncanny ability to motivate all walks of life and lead them to mutual success and project milestones. With a vast range of construction projects to his name both at Stead and previous employment, Glen has grown as Stead Construction has grown and as new challenges have been presented, Glen has taken them on boots and all.

As construction deadlines and commercial pressures creep evermore into projects Glen continues to enlighten success.


Sam Lee

Sam joined Stead Construction in 2006 having partially completed his carpentry apprenticeship. From completing his apprenticeship in early 2007 Sam has stepped through the ranks within the company structure.

Sam's ability to keep a cool head under pressure and gain the respect of much older work colleges leads him into a very strong construction career.


Evert Metz
Leading Hand

Evert (better known as Stretch) has been an integral part of the Stead Construction's work force since the company's inception. Evert in his former employment played a major role in taking company director Jeremy Stead through his Carpentry apprenticeship.

Formerly from Wairoa, Evert has a wealth of knowledge gathered over his 40 years within the construction industry, this includes bridge building, power stations and large infrastructure projects and together with his hard working approach to his day to day work, Evert continues to guide and teach apprentices in their trade.


Scott Treneman
Leading Hand

Scott is a long standing member of staff and is very well respected within his peer construction workers. Formerly from the Waikato District, Scott has held several different positions within different industries, it is not uncommon to see Scott driving heavy trucks, operating hi-ab and/or driving earth mover equipment.



Peter Jackson
Joinery Foreman

Having worked as a joiner since 1967, Peter is massively experienced in timber interior and exterior joinery. Peter is well known throughout the building industry for his attention to detail and finesse. He joined Stead Construction in 2007 further enhancing the technical joinery skills of the team.
