Learn more about the Wanaka building team at Level Construction.



Building a home in Wanaka can at times be an emotional process, but with our background and skills in all facets of the industry we can make it a positive experience for everyone.

Level Construction are committed to site safety and run a tight ship in respect to health and safety standards. Dean and his crew all hold current workplace first aid certificates.





Dean has been involved in the construction industry for 24 years, 20 of which have been as a fully qualified Wanaka builder.

Trained in old-school builders practices, he has embraced the transformation of the construction industry over the years and used that experience to develop a successful career as a project manager and a qualified, licensed Wanaka builder..

Collaborating with several reputable architects, tradies and contractors in Wanaka and surrounding areas, over the past two decades, Dean has built a strong industry network and a reputation for successful client outcomes.

After working with a large successful national franchise as a builder for over a year he was offered a project management role within that same company in 2003.

He accepted the role and gained valuable management experience which augmented his skills within the industry. That role and subsequent industry experience has enabled him to establish a stronger and more balanced understanding of the building process and Wanaka builders industry in general.



A proud Mum of three young boys and a true Wanaka local with a strong customer service and management background, Robyn has a great love for the area and brings many skills to the business.

Passionate about Wanaka, over the years she and Dean have built three custom Wanaka homes with their family at various ages giving her a clear insight into the challenges – and rewards – of a building project.

Hardworking and capable Robyn will fill in the gaps where needed outside of the office. It will be no surprise to see her on a Wanaka building site on the end of a broom, holding a chalk-line or collecting building supplies or just delivering smoko!

Outside of the Wanaka builders world, Dean and Robyn enjoy a strong involvement with the local community.

Dean is president of the Upper Clutha Junior Rugby Club and takes great pride in the record numbers of youngsters becoming involved in the sport over the past few years. He has also enjoyed several years of coaching at junior level and has a great rapport with the kids. As a keen rugby player in his day he also enjoys the run around during practice!

Robyn has served on several committees in a volunteer position over the years and will put her hand up to help-out within the community whenever she can. She is a current volunteer member of St John Wanaka as an Ambulance officer, and she feels it is important to find a way to give back to her community in a way that best utilises her skills as a communicator.

Amazing, special, wonderful company. Right from our initial meeting, I was more than impressed with Dean’s professional, efficient and infectious attitude. Dean worked closely with my architect through the entire project and made the process appear to be seamless. The house included two challenging gabion basket end walls and Dean took on the challenge with enthusiasm and came up with a resourceful and innovative method to construct and complete the walls.

Both Dean and Robyn are easy to talk to, they listen and are responsive and proud of the quality of their work. I have received many comments on the high standard of workmanship and the quality of the build. You don’t see this high standard of workmanship in many new houses today. I cannot recommend Level Construction enough. If I ever build again I will definitely use Dean and Robyn.
