  • Scott Harris

    After growing up on a Banks Peninsula farm, attending the local primary school, boarding at a Christchurch secondary school and then attending Lincoln University, I moved permanently to Christchurch to start my working and family life.

    You could say my career started from the ground up - literally. The first 15 years of my career were committed to the floor coverings industry, firstly as an employee, and then owning and operating two of my own very successful companies. Post-flooring, a friend introduced me to the construction industry. I knew instantly this was where I belonged and I’ve been working in new home sales, design and management ever since. Quality home design has always held my attention, defined my ambitions, and there is nothing more satisfying than helping my clients achieve their dream home.

    In the build and construction industry, I have facilitated sales in excess of $170 million and enjoyed the experience of most build types. From first homes to high architectural homes; builds on the flat to builds on the hill; commercial to multi-unit construction; I’ve made it my business to bring a wealth of knowledge with me on every build journey.

    Through our mutual love of design and build, Vincent and I have built a robust relationship which enables us both to excel in our chosen areas of expertise. I can unreservedly recommend him because I have personally engaged Bespoke Architecture to design many of my own and my sales team’s clients’ new homes.

    We are united in many of our views and values and this has given rise to My Build Sorted; our commitment to providing independent and unbiased advice to clients who want a home that speaks to their unique wants and needs.

    After two years of research and refinement, we are excited to offer this revolutionary service to you.

  • Vincent Sanders

    I grew up in Central Otago attending the local schools before relocating to Christchurch to study architecture and have dedicated my working life to the industry.

    Post-graduation, my career started in a small architect’s office working on affordable small to medium sized homes, luxury architectural homes, and a number of other multi-residential and commercial projects. Following this, I worked within a Nelson based group home builder as their in-house architectural designer. It was this experience that gave me great insight into how this method of design and build operated.

    I spread my wings after a year in this role, seeking offshore experience in the UK’s construction management field. Managing time critical and very large value projects, whilst leading architects and engineers to deliver these, provided me with invaluable experience.

    Late 2007, I returned to NZ and decided to start my family and create my own practice, Bespoke Architecture. From humble beginnings - the spare room in my house - Bespoke found its feet. Bespoke Architecture has since designed more than 750 homes, from traditional homes through to high-end architectural hill builds, thankfully no longer from my spare room, and no longer on my own. My business has expanded to employ 8 talented and dedicated people who have created a wonderful dynamic. My team is critical to the success of Bespoke.

    During the early days of Bespoke, I met Scott. Our relationship has endured and evolved giving rise to a number of exciting projects, culminating in our biggest yet - My Build Sorted. True to the adage that big things come from small beginnings was the catch up I had with Scott one day. Over lunch we shared our mutual revelations about the market and what our experiences had shown us: there must be a better and more affordable way to deliver quality design and construction to clients.

    My Build Sorted was born.

    Needless to say, we’re thrilled about the opportunity to shake up the industry and make a positive change in the industry for all homeowners, designers, builders and tradesmen alike.
