Bear Construction is owned and operated by Phil Ashton. Phil is a Wellingtonian through and through. He was educated at Newlands College, and gained his building qualifications at Weltec. He has been in the building industry since 2007, and launched his own company, Bear Construction in 2012. He gained his licensed building practitioner qualification with the introduction of new regulations, also in 2012.
Phil is a family man, with a wife and 6 year old youngster living in Waterloo, Lower Hutt. He is a cross fit enthusiast, and holds a National Certificate in Exercise Science but mostly spend his spare with his family.
Bear Construction Ltd undertakes jobs anywhere in the Wellington region, extending up to Plimmerton, and across to Upper Hutt. Although Phil is “on the tools” most days, he has two tradesmen who assist him as and when needed, and he is supported by a team of reliable ‘subbies’ covering drainage and plumbing, electrical, and painting. This ensures that Bear Construction is always as big as it needs to be, day by day, depending upon the work flow of each job.
