About Us

The Smith and Sons Takanini Franchise is owned and operated by Lane & Melissa van den Brink. Lane and Melissa joined the Smith and Sons team in June 2012 opening the Smith & Sons Franklin branch. The success of the Franklin branch combined with their desire to bring the Smith & Sons renovation model to clients further afield in South Auckland resulted in them securing the Takanini office in late 2016. 
 
Lane is a fully qualified builder and Licensed Building Practitioner. Having 10 years experience in shop fit outs, residential and commercial building, Lane has gained the knowledge and experience in the building industry to make your next project a success.  
 
Lane enjoys the challenge of turning a client’s renovation vision into a reality with an eye for the little things in detail and design.  Lane takes pride in being able to translate a client’s brief into a practical and cost effective solution that also looks great.
 
Our commitment is to have great communication, professionalism, quality systems and excellent workmanship to make your renovation process as stress free as possible.
 
We will take our client all the way through from the design process, through to the completion.
 
With both Lane and Melissa being raised in the South Auckland region, they are proud to support Local businesses and will always use local contractors where possible. Lane says “We are very proud to be part of the Smith and Sons brand and are looking forward to helping clients get the desired results”.
