“We used Max to build our deck, and I have to say it has transformed our living space.

Max is a clever and efficient builder with a high standard of work, the deck was built on time and we are able to entertain friends and family during the warmer months. Our deck has created indoor outdoor flow and given our dog and daughter space to play and create memories.

Max and the team worked extremely hard during some very hot days without any complaint. They helped turn a drawing on a piece of paper into a reality and overall exceeded our expectations.”


“We are so thrilled with Max and the job that he did for us. We’ve recommended him to others and would welcome him into our home again.

We appreciated how he worked in well with our own family’s routines and needs while doing a fantastic job on the house.

He did a great job with project management of the whole renovation.

His workmanship was awesome, and his communication with us was clear and open all the way through...”


"I would recommend Max to others without hesitation. He is very professional, efficient and skilled.

Our architect suggested we use Max Southworth for the installation of a very large unit to separate two large rooms in our Mount Maunganui house. It was a reasonably complex job requiring the highest standards of joinery and workmanship. Max arranged the joinery and then handled the installation himself in conjunction with the electrician.

Max was a pleasure to work with, and the whole experience of working with Southworth Construction was a very good one. We would not hesitate to use him again or to recommend him to others.

It is early days for Max’s new business. But if he continues to display the qualities we observed he will quickly establish a top reputation."
