Meet our awesome owner/operators of Totalspan Northland – Darin and Shiree Neeley.

They’ve lived in Whangarei for over 20 years and not only have extensive knowledge of the area, but a truck load of industry experience between the two of them.

Darin is a full member of the Certified Builders Association and has been a builder since he was 21 years old and has worked in most areas of the construction industry, with vast experience in designing and building residential houses. 

Shiree has many years’ experience working for a major housing company alongside the construction manager, liaising with clients, suppliers and subcontractors.

After owning their own financial advising business for 12 years they decided they wanted to get back to doing what they know and love - so they bought Totalspan! 

Totalspan are known as the go to “shed company” but Darin and Shiree want people to realise there is so much more to the company with everything from houses to habitable and commercial buildings being part of the range they offer.

If you’re looking for experts in the field with a passion for what they do – pay the team at Totalspan Northland a visit!

We are on site Monday-Thursday from 8.30am to 5pm and on Friday from 8.30am - 4.00pm. 

*By appointment only on Saturdays.


Totalspan are a great company that makes beautiful buildings! We have found them easy to communicate with and really professional and consistent. We've appreciated the top notch communication, which is saying something in the building industry in our experience! We love our shed and would definitely come back if we were to build another. Thank you!

We cannot speak highly enough of Totalspan Whangarei, they built our new garage for us and it is everything that we asked for, as a company they were always professional and went above and beyond in what were some trying circumstances. We would absolutely recommend Totalspan Whangarei as a company, their product is second to none,very pleased we went with this particular garage it will stand the test of time for sure, and at the finish of building the place was left very tidy.

A big THANK YOU to the Totalspan crews who built my shed. At every stage of the build the workmen were efficient, tidy and courteous. From the Project Manager and their administration staff, to Jack, the newest recruit, they went out of their way to ensure I was happy with the result.
I strongly recommend Totalspan to get the shed you want.

"Our kit-set Heritage Barn looks fantastic! The whole process went really smoothly, from ordering the quality kit-set to following well explained plans to erect the barn. The team at Totalspan were there for us all the way and dealt with any queries we had quickly and efficiently. Thanks Shiree and the Whangarei Totalspan team".

The Northland Vintage Machinery club has recently had a new building erected by Totalspan at Heritage Park in Maunu Whangarei.
During the design and pricing stage Totalspan staff were most helpful and understanding with our requirements. The onsite construction staff kept us informed of progress and timelines and were most helpful and polite. Our club members were very pleased with the project and would have no hesitation in using Totalspan for any other work in the future.

We were needing a combination vehicle garage/workshop with enough height to house a boat. Totalspan would provide this to our specific measurements. After several emails and phone calls Totalspan was our choice to deal with. Shiree and the team provided friendly professional service, communicated regularly so we were always kept up with the progress. They dealt with the council permit, and contractors. We are very happy with the look and workmanship of our build. Big thank you Whangarei Totalspan.

"We have had a great experience dealing with Totalspan Whangarei. David gave us great advice when we ordered our shed, documentation was fully transparent and Shiree kept us informed of the build schedule as things changed due to Covid. The team has built a great shed.
Highly recommended."

Grant and Glenda Reed — Waipu

Curtis and Sarah Hawkes — Whangarei

“Darin, Shiree and David from Totalspan, Whangarei provided efficient service and understanding of my building requirements, their capability to interpret my needs soon presented me with options that immediately appealed to me.
They then arranged the required subcontractors and oversaw the project with no fuss and brilliant communication throughout, even working with me to make adjustments during the build presented no concern.
I would definitely build with them again and happily recommend Totalspan in Whangarei to anyone. I’m very pleased with the finished result, awesome service!"

Jason Keoghan — Whangarei

Thank you so much for all the work you have done in facilitating our build. Having to communicate with me, not being there, and our neighbour being my eyes and ears, was extra to what you would normally have to do!! I really appreciate your efforts; it looks and feels great and I’m now in my happy place. Thanks for helping with the CCC, again, much appreciated. All the best and thanks again!

“We would like to thank Totalspan Whangarei for their help over an extended period, in providing our kit set fire station and with your help in erecting it.”

Wayne Deeming, Maungakaramea Volunteer Rural Fire Force — Whangarei

Thanks again for everything, without you our shed would still be in piles on the ground (or actually scattered everywhere from Gabrielle!). We appreciate everything you all did, every single one of your staff who came here was amazing, they were very professional, worked hard, were friendly and respectful, we couldn't have asked for better.

Michelle — Whangarei

“Your company recently completed a shed on my property at Kara Rd. We dealt with a great team member who was very helpful and knowledgeable about your product and made the process very easy, even when we made changes to the original building. Our builder, Jos Groot was just fantastic in every aspect. His knowledge, attention to detail along with his quirky little inventions to make the job easier, made for a trouble free build. He was extremely helpful in every aspect and I would be happy to recommend his skills to any prospective client.”

Mike Sosinko — Whangarei

We are absolutely delighted with our new Totalspan home! It is a combination house/shed that ticks all the boxes for us. The house is an easycare 2 bedroom dwelling, incredibly warm and cozy, with a living area that is surprisingly spacious. The shed has all the space we need for our motorhome, car, mowers, tools and timber storage as well as a great area for parties!

We have been delighted with the friendly and skilled support of our Totalspan building team. From the design stage right through to final completion we have experienced the sort of friendly expertise and attention to detail that makes a build like ours an absolute pleasure. Thank you Totalspan Whangarei for your dedicated commitment to our new home!

Colin and Dene — Northland

"Your door men have just left and they did a terrific job. Thank you. Thank you also for your help through the entire project. Everyone we dealt with was helpful and professional."

Hope & Murray Spriggs — Whangarei

I had a concept in mind for a steel home and Totalspan Whangarei had been recommended.

With expert guidance from Irish, we came up with a design that fitted the site, my brief and budget. The fun part for sure! In fact Totalspan ensured the design, working drawings and Council consent processes were all relatively pain free.

No build is without its challenges though and we had a few gnarly ones - none the result of Totalspan's work; in fact their team were amazingly proactive in helping with solutions. Their team also rose to the added challenges of working with my appointed subcontractors.

What we have ended up with is a home that has surpassed our vision and expectations, that we absolutely love living in. I believe this is down to a team that understood and trusted my initial concept, then used their collective expertise to bring it to fruition.

Huge thanks to everyone at Totalspan Whangarei!

Jo — Whangarei

I would like to thank you and the whole Totalspan Team for a job well done. We are very happy with our shed and really appreciate your completing the project in time for our business relocation. Please convey our appreciation to Shiree, Darin, Irish, Ryan, Dean & Crew and also Ricky and Crew. I didn’t meet the roofers but they deserve a thank you too.
