Meet the Formsteel team

Formsteel New Build Subsidy

From PhD qualified engineers, to those that have worked in some of the largest factories in the world. Our software developers are no slugs either, with extensive knowledge and expertise gained across many industrial sectors, both here in good old New Zealand and internationally.

Our sweet spot is large buildings. And the friendly talented bunch of people that we are, we combine as a team to deliver outstanding results on your large-scale projects. Competing with small time shed builders really isn’t our thing, but we can if you want the Rolls Royce of sheds!
