Our Mission

Don Chapman Waikato Ltd is a leader in providing value-added construction services to our customers by creating successful relationships with them throughout the construction process. Our goal is to gain long term relationships with our customers by exceeding their expectations and gaining their trust through integrity, performance, value and client satisfaction.

Don Chapman Waikato Ltd

Don Chapman Waikato Ltd was set up when Shanan White bought out Don Chapman Builders Ltd in February 2014. Based out of the Don Chapman Builders yard and retaining all of the existing staff has ensured a seamless transition for all existing clients. Shanan had contracted to Don Chapman Builders since 2007 and has built many dairy sheds, including the dairy complex constructed in 2009 for Ag Research at Tokanui . This complex consisted of  a 60 bail rotary as well as a 20 bail under the same roof with a large computer room/laborotory,  covered vet area with herringbone pit and fold down platform, silage bunker, feed pad with floodwash, effluent drying area and large sand wedge.

We are based in Morrinsville and most of our building projects are carried out in the Waikato and neighbouring areas.
