Woodworks Southern Ltd (trading as Wood Solutions), prior to the 1st July 2001 was known as Naylor Love Wood Joinery Division. Naylor Love Joinery was a ‘stand alone’ division of Naylor Love Construction Ltd the largest commercial construction company in the lower South Island. Naylor Love Joinery has operated out of the current Sturdee Street site since 1910 and during all these years has primarily been involved in commercial joinery fitouts. Just prior to the 1st of July the Directors of Naylor Love Ltd decided to sell their Sub Contracting Divisions and instead concentrate on project management and construction.

















Woodworks Southern purchased Naylor Love joinery on the 1st of July 2001. It retained all the existing factory and management staff, agreeing to retain all staff privileges, long service leave etc.

Woodworks Southern Ltd, due to its long history in the industry has all the necessary systems, machinery and a stable workforce in place to undertake any type of work. We pride ourselves on completing all our contracts on time and on being ‘right first time’. Our subcontractors, eg; spray painters, lino layers, metalwork manufacturers are all well established reputable Dunedin companies with whom we have had many years of dealings.

The Office. In the office we employ 4 staff. We have an office manager responsible for reception, payroll, and creditor/debtor invoices. We employ 3 quantity surveyor/project managers responsible for pricing contracts, then seeing them through to completion. Our contract managers come from a joinery trade background and have been directly responsible for running contracts for more than 4 years.

The office has 6 networked computers, one at each workstation, and we run a comprehensive business computer package called Finbuild. This package allows us to look up instant up to date, comprehensive information on every one of our contracts at any time. It provides us with an extensive breakdown of every item involved in the job and is linked fully with the payroll, debtor and creditor modules of the package. It allows us at any time to monitor progress versus budget. costs to date and time to completion.

Woodworks Southern has an annual turnover of around $4.5 million, the majority of which is made up of contracts in the $150,000.00 plus bracket. We have worked with the majority commercial building contractors in Otago and Central Otago as well as with Arrow International and Octa Associates.
