J P Masonry - A testament to Quality & Workmanship
Nov 11, 2020
JP Masonry’s dedication to quality workmanship has built a solid reputation evident in their construction of Christchurch’s sports facilities. Jakob Tveden and his team are currently busy with the construction of Te Pou Toetoe: Linwood Pool and the extension to the Selwyn Aquatic Centre. Other key facilities in Christchurch that have also benefited from JP Masonry’s workmanship are the New Brighton Hot Pools – He Puna Taimoana and the Taiora QEII Recreation and Sports Centre
Jakob Tveden founded JP Masonry in 2011, after arriving in NZ from Denmark. Jakob brings with him Danish craftmanship, which was acquired during his brick-laying apprenticeship at the Aalborg technical college in the Northern region of Denmark.
Aalborg is a city known for its architecture, both the modern building on the Limfjord and the half-timbered mansions built by its prosperous merchants. It was originally settled as a trading post because of its position on the Limfjord, and was a city that Viking ships once sailed past.
J P Masonry are Licenced Building Practitioners in Brick & Block Laying and External Plastering. They also have alliances with many of the other trades, such as carpenters and painters. These alliances, coupled with their recognised project management expertise, allows JP Masonry to reliably complete most residential or commercial projects.
