More to the point, I am absolutely thrilled with the finished product. They did a beautiful job. Their workmanship was excellent. I also found that the subcontractors they engaged did work to a very high standard.

I am very pleased with my new home and very grateful to Lloyd and Clive and their team and subcontractors who put in so much great craftsmanship and expertise into turning my house into a beautiful home.

Mokoia Developments Limited

Mokoia Developments Ltd. Was founded in 1989 by brothers Lloyd and Clive McMillan.


Building is in our blood with three generations of builders in our family. Lloyd and Clive served their apprenticeships with their father Tom, who in turn served an apprenticeship with his father Jack.  We have always been based on the North Shore in Auckland.

Between them Lloyd and Clive have extensive experience with both house renovation and new builds, as well as commercial and interior fit outs.   At present our team consists of five trades men, one hammer hand and three  apprentices, with casual tradesmen on hand to assist when and if necessary.  Our business is well established, with extensive plant and equipment to take on any sized project.

Whatever your building requirements Mokoia Developments can cover all areas from planning with an architect to council consent, right through the building process, dealing with trusted sub contractors, and final compliance.

Clive and Lloyd are both Licensed Building Practitioners, with the Department of Building and Housing, and are also members of the Certified Builders Association of New Zealand.  To get compliance on any building project, you must use a Licensed Building Practitioner.

Our trade membership indicates our commitment to both the industry and to clients as we strive towards excellence in the construction industry.

Being a member of the Certified Builders Association of New Zealand means we can offer the Home First Builders Guarantee, the most comprehensive building guarantee on the market. The guarantee gives the new homeowner additional reassurance and belief in the quality of the workmanship provided by their Certified Builder.
