Michael Katene
apprentice carpenter


Michael brings his extensive background in tree felling to his role in the Johnstone Construction team. After years of working in the high risk forestry industry gaining an impressive range of NCEA credits and industry certifications Michael had reached the pinnacle of his profession and knew he needed a new challenge.

Michael came to Johnstone Construction after working for one of our sub-contractors in a temporary role and impressing the team with his dedication and effort to getting the job done and learning as much as he could while doing it.

Michael is a fantastic all-rounder and we are supporting him through a general building apprenticeship. Michael has some important personal goals he is working toward and Johnstone Construction are proud to be supporting him to achieve these too.
