Our Team

Locally Owned & Operated

Jones Builders is a family-owned Tauranga building company. Our team ensures the client is number one by working alongside them, every step of the way. That way, there are no surprises.


Brad Jones


Born and bred in Taumaranui he decided he was going to take a different path to the family’s electrical business and started a building apprenticeship in 2006. After having their daughter Mia, wife Courtney gave him a little nudge to take the step out on his own and in 2015 Jones Builders was started. In his spare time Brad enjoys playing squash and spending time with his family- his wife and their 3 children. Here at Jones you’ll find ‘Jonesy’ out on site checking in with everyone, zipping from one client meeting to the next, on the phone keeping people happy or if you’re quick you might just catch him behind his desk!

Dave Behrent

Construction Manager

Dave left school and got into a boat building apprenticeship at Hutcheson Boat Builders here in Tauranga. After a stint of 5 years or so over in the Gold Coast putting his apprenticeship to work he returned to the Bay to work for us here at Jones Builders. Alongside his wife Megan and their girls Layla (5) and Ana (4) he enjoys hitting the beach, biking and camping and any outdoor adventures. At Jones you’ll find “DB” out on site having a good laugh while working on those finer details to keep the quality levels high like we do here at Jones Builders.

Rachel Howard

Client care/Sales

Born in sunny Hawkes Bay Rachel grew up on the beach in Haumoana before continuing her high school years in windy Wellington. After school Rachel went to teachers’ college at Massey University and upon graduating dived straight into work. In 2012 her and her husband moved to Tauranga where she continued to teach. In her spare time alongside her husband Karl and their 3 children she enjoys being outdoors, spending time with friends and family and baking! The newbie here at Jones you’ll find Rach learning the ropes alongside Sue, getting to know our wonderful clients and wrangling a giant Mom bag with a container of morning tea in there somewhere!

Sue Tremlett

Office Manager

Born here in Tauranga (back when Papamoa was still farmland), after finishing University Sue ventured overseas to do some travel and see the world. On return to NZ she lived in Auckland for 15 years until she decided to move back to her true home back here in the Bay. She’s abit of an action girl our Sue so in her spare time, you’ll find her out on the water, playing sports and spending time with her 2 teenage boys (when they let her!). Here at Jones you’ll find her friendly face behind the front desk working her admin magic, replying to emails and adding abit of humour to the team WhatsApp!
