Owner Mike Seatter of ME Creative Construction

Mike Seatter

My Name is Mike Seatter, and I am the Managing Director of ME Creative Construction. I do wear a lot of hats like, the Sales Manager, Project Manager & Coffee Provider!

I have worked in the construction & agricultural sector for the last 15 years and have had the privilege of working with and for some large New Zealand & Australian companies.

My passion for the company and the construction industry, is to make sure everyone who wants to build get the right advice and their ideas listened to. When I’m not swinging a hammer or in the office or onsite, you will find me either at Ohope Beach or Rowing at the Whakatane rowing club.

Drew Parkinson

My Name is Drew Parkinson and I’m the Design Lead.

I grew up in  Westport New Zealand. my dreams and passions took me overseas for about 17 years. I have worked in some very sustainable and diverse roles within the construction industry in that time.

When I came back to New Zealand I completed a Bachelor of Civil Engineer and Architecture.

My passion for design and sustainable building practised translates into my design work and better living for you the client.

When I’m not behind the wheel of a design project, I’m working for the New Zealand Fire service in Dunedin and spending time with my partner.


My Name is Josh Pairika-Coburn and I’m the Design Technician.

I spent my childhood years on the beautiful Chatham Islands in New Zealand. After enjoying island life, I moved overseas to Australia with my family. Once I finished high school, I worked in a variety of roles in both the food and construction industries.

After 17 years, I returned home to the sun and surf of Christchurch to take up an opportunity to expand my skills and knowledge and, to be closer to family.

In my spare time, I enjoy weekend BBQs with friends, getting out to the water and learning through new experiences.

Sherrie Thompson

My Name is Sherrie Thompson and I’m the Interior Design Lead.

Covering the Central Plateau area, I strive to create a style that matches the aspirations you have for your home, office space or place of work.

I am passionate about creating beautiful spaces that reflect who you are and how your family lives. From custom furniture design, to material selection, to renovations and new builds. I design solutions that will transform your space to not only look beautiful but which will also meet all your practical requirements for day to day living.

I work closely with our architects, builders and landscape designers to ensure a cohesive design that minimises your time output, or enables you to be as involved as you like in the process.

I can work with the special pieces you already own and tie these together with carefully selected pieces, adhering to your budget and time constraints or start from scratch to build a collection of lovely pieces to turn a house into a home.

I love what I do and look forward to taking future clients on the journey where considered design is the process and living is the product.
