“Hayden really does a great job project managing the build, and we didn’t really stress about anything. We knew what was happening, when it was happening, and stuck to the time when he said things were going to get done, which was great.”

“Hayden is a perfectionist, and his guys are great. We had such a great relationship, we worked together really well, and it made it a breeze.”

Hayden Nation

Builder / Director

Hi, I’m Hayden! I am the owner and director of Resolute Construction, an innovative building company that specialises in high quality residential new homes and renovations across Kapiti and the greater Wellington region.

I grew up on a dairy farm near Rongotea, a small rural community in Manawatu. Growing up and helping my parents on the farm instilled a strong work ethic, and I gained a wide range of practical skills. After leaving school, I started a building apprenticeship. I love building. It's not just work to me, it’s a passion, and that's the great thing about it.

After gaining my carpentry qualification in 2005, I was keen for some adventures. I headed to the UK & Europe, and then onto South America, Canada and the USA. I spent 5 years overseas perfecting my craft.

Upon returning to New Zealand, I settled in Wellington with a desire to build a strong project management knowledge base. I worked for Five Star Construction for 6 years as a Foreman alongside an inspiring Managing Director who allowed me to develop my skill set, make decisions, lead jobs, and find solutions to problems on-site when required. 

During this time, I worked on a huge range of projects from renovations and alterations to commercial construction and new builds. 

I met my wife Amie in Wellington and we set about the path of creating Resolute Construction in 2016. We started the business with a desire to build a healthier home environment with the highest quality workmanship.
