About Maungatua View

Kelvin Read and Brent Reid are passionate about Maungatua View. They’re locals with over 30 years of experience in the industry. Kelvin and Brent, of Formby Holdings, have been business partners for several decades. They have a wealth of experience in the building and subdivision industries. Throughout their careers, Kelvin and Brent have helped create and establish many subdivisions, and here in Outram, they want to build something local, with culture and community, that is a quality development, offering a semi-rural outlook, with all the conveniences of city life.

All sections for Maungatua View will be released at the same time, and Formby Holdings will manage all the sales of sections. This allows Formby Holdings to have a real hands-on approach in the community they are creating. Kelvin and Brent are looking forward to creating a community where neighbours say hello to each other, while still having the all the services of a happening city lifestyle.

Kelvin Read – Director

Kelvin Read, co-owner of Formby Holdings, has worked across the drainage and subdivision industry in Otago and Southland for over 30 years. Through his company, KB Contractors, Kelvin has successfully worked on many subdivisions across the Taieri planes, including recent work at Highland Park in nearby Mosgiel.

Kelvin has a real vision for Maungatua View. Kelvin thinks it’s the ideal place for people looking to be part of a real community, especially for people who are semi-retired, or families, after an effortless, semi-rural lifestyle. He thinks it’s an excellent area, with beautiful weather and views, while still being an easy distance from Dunedin City and busy Mosgiel.

Kelvin is passionate about the Outram area. He is a keen fisherman and enjoys spending time down at the local fishing spot – the Taieri River.

Brent Reid - Director

Brent Reid comes from a rural farming background, so he understands the pull of the country and wanting to return to the simpler, slower life that a rural outlook can give. After establishing KB Contractors with Kelvin back in 1985, Brent says their honesty and loyalty to their clients is shown by the great client base and repeat business they get across Otago and Southland. These principles of honesty and loyalty are something they wish to foster in Formby Holdings and in the Outram community at Maungatua View.

Cheesy though it may be, Brent and Kelvin want to create ‘city living in the country’ and want to keep the down-to-earth quality feel of the area, using locally produced stone and hardwood finishes, and utilising the existing gardens established by a previous gardener in the area.

Outside of work, Brent loves the big outdoors, including hunting and fishing, rugby and golf. He says Maungatua View is in the ideal spot for someone like him, with a quick drive to the world class Forsyth Barr Stadium in Dunedin, a multitude of quality golf courses around Outram and Mosgiel, and at the entrance to the Maniototo; with all it’s great hunting and fishing. It’s the ideal spot for any kiwi bloke looking to retire to the good life.
