MHI Sponsors The Resident Builder With Peter Wolfkamp

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries is excited to announce that they have teamed up with NewsalkZB to sponsor ‘The Resident Builder’ show with Peter Wolfkamp for the next 6 months.

Known as “The Resident Builder”, Peter hosts his own building and DIY show with Newstalk ZB, “Sunday Mornings with the Resident Builder” 6-9am, which was launched May 2014.  Peter is New Zealand’s top DIY radio personality.  The programme includes taking questions from callers and offering advice on DIY projects, gardening with Ruud Kleinpaste plus ‘Ask the Expert’ segments.

about the resident builder

As the site foreman for The Block NZ since 2012, ‘The Wolf’ as he’s referred to on The Block, brings a unique combination of construction and technical knowledge, along with hands-on chippy experience. Peter has also developed editorial and narrative skills that have proved useful to the production team.

Peter’s TV career is building apace, with the launch of his very own TV programme, Creative Living on TV3 in September 2016. This series focused on the challenges and choices facing any homeowner as they transform their existing home into a warm, comfortable and efficient home for the future. Peter’s experience, knowledge and expertise helped assist the owners, and he even got his hands dirty as they work to create a great renovation.

Peter has a wealth of knowledge to draw on, extensive experience on site, a passion for architecture and a sound technical knowledge of building and DIY, and combines that with presentation and editorial skills honed over many years.  He strikes a chord with all levels of audiences, crossing age, gender, demographics, and more importantly, all levels of the industry, from humble home-based DIY-lovers to top end professionals. His extensive skills and knowledge are tempered and made accessible by his friendly, open approach and ‘the bloke next door’ no nonsense personality.  Everyone loves ‘The Wolf’!
