Who Is Paul Reed
How It All StartedIt was at High School that I developed a strong liking not only for Woodwork but also Technical Drawing and Applied Mathematics, a winning combination for a detail and analytical minded person. My cousin worked on construction sites and whether visiting these in the school holidays or watching homes being built while walking home from school was highly interesting and exciting to me. It was not only the love of making things from timber, but also working out and designing how they are made that prompted a career in the building industry. I started my carpentry apprenticeship in 1984. This traditional apprenticeship required 8000 hours of work as well as incremental exams concluding with the
passing of NZ Trades Certificate. I was privileged to be trained on a combination
of heavy commercial through timber framed construction. The company had its own Rimu mill, joiners shop, steel shop as examples. The availability of this type of apprenticeship and extensive training is now sadly part of history.
I was born and raised in Christchurch with my brother. The strong family values and work ethics I learned as a youngster have ﬂowed through life and business since.
