The History Behind Atlas Building Services


Atlas Building Services started as a family run business in the dining room of Doug Gale and his wife Kylie’s home in Nelson with Doug as the principal builder and face of the company, Kylie handling things in the office, and the help of friends and colleagues in the industry. It didn't take long before Doug's small building company started to experience significant growth, and, naturally with growth comes change, but the culture of Atlas Building Services has continued to focus on family values, customer satisfaction and uncompromised quality.


Atlas Building Services has gone from strength to strength, gaining the title of Registered Master Builders in 2017, becoming one of the few IAG approved builders in the Nelson/Tasman region, undertaking works for several insurance companies, and in 2019 collaborating with an Architect to produce design and build packages.


Doug’s role has changed somewhat over the years, and, after having to retire his toolbelt, and hand it over to their trusted Lead Foreman, along with the Site Foremen and motivated team of highly skilled and professional tradesman, he now shares an office with his wife Kylie and their team of office staff, focusing on the efficient running of the company, its rapidly growing number of staff, and, most importantly, maintaining their reputation for uncompromised, quality workmanship and customer focus.
