Scott Ross is our local Jim’s Building Inspections Franchisee for Warkworth. Scott operates from Riverhead to Ruakaka and everywhere in between. He is passionate about how this area of New Zealand has grown thus far and also the projected future growth of the area and the challenges that a satellite town brings.
Scott was born and bred Warkworth and attended Kaipara Flats Primary, Warkworth Primary and then finished his schooling at Mahurangi College in Warkworth. He is a Qualified, Licensed Builder and prior to joining Jim’s worked his way up to becoming a foreman in the Residential Sector. Scott has been a builder for over 16 years, which has enabled him to obtain not only substantial building experience, but an exceptional knowledge of his local area.
Most recently prior to joining Jim’s, Scott had been working in Western Australia in the Oil and Gas Construction Industry. The physical work, long hours and lengthy periods away from friends and family was taxing and Scott was looking to start his own business close to home . After returning home to NZ in 2016, Scott worked as a Residential Carpenter/foreman for 2 Warkworth based home builders and enjoyed the day to day challenges of high end residential builds, home extensions, and renovations. Now the owner of Jim’s Building Inspections Warkworth, Scott is determined to build a successful business, whilst having plenty of time for his young family.
On a different note, Scott’s passions include fishing, watching NRL and spending time with his daughter and partner.
