About us


Murray Henderson started Henderson Construction LTD in 1970, when it was based at the Tiwai Point Aluminium Smelter, predominantly carrying out repair and maintenance work.

Since then we have established a well-earned reputation as one of Southland’s most prominent and respected construction companies. We have been based in Invercargill since re-locating our offices in 1992.

Henderson Construction has a workforce of experienced builders and painters who will ensure your construction project, whether large or small, is completed to the highest standard. We are invested in training Carpenters for the future and are currently training apprentices in carpentry.

We specialize in tender and commercial work, with years of experience in fit-outs, sheds, industrial buildings and structural upgrading. Henderson Construction also has the skill-set to ensure your building is up to the standard for earthquake protection.

We actively promote a strong Health and Safety environment within our staff and sub-contractors by holding regular Health and Safety training meetings.
