Our team

Lewis Build has a strong team culture and Ben hand-selects each team member for the quality and energy that they bring to our crew.


Ben Lewis

Ben Lewis is the owner and Director of Lewis Build and a Licensed Building Practitioner with more than 20 years of experience. As a young man, Ben was inspired to build by his uncle, who was a Master Carpenter in the Auckland region.

As the business owner, Ben’s primary focus is on growing the business, nurturing relationships with clients, staying across industry trends and looking after his team of builders.

Ben is passionate about building luxury homes for his clients and making sure the quality of all our work is exceptional. He enjoys meeting new people and expanding his professional network.

Outside of work, Ben enjoys sports, fishing, adventures to the beach, motorsport racing and being a dad to son Hunter.

Project Manager

Daniel Hutton

Daniel joined Lewis Build in 2022, coming to us with experience in corporate management before becoming a qualified builder. The skills he has gained in management, alongside his building knowledge, give him a full picture of the different facets of project management in the building sector. Building good relationships is important to Daniel. When he’s not working, Daniel enjoys football (including coaching his son Beau’s team), watching motorsport, chilling with friends, getting out on his motorcycle and sneaking away in his caravan for family time. 

Site Supervisor

Sam Walia

Sam is one of the OG members of the Lewis Build team, joining as an apprentice back in 2015 and working his way up to a Site Supervisor. Sam’s special skills are keeping a project moving at a fast pace while also managing to ensure a high quality of workmanship from himself and his builders.

Sam is a qualified LBP and is highly respected by our whole Lewis Build team. Outside of work, Sam is a master on the charcoal BBQ, often cooking up spicy feeds for our team social events.
