Our history

How we started


Capabuild was started in 2001, and was, up to the beginning of 2019, run by Chris Keenan, who had a dedicated team of builders as well as trusted and established relationships with various subcontractors, designers and architects alike.

Due to unfortunate circumstances, Chris passed away suddenly, leaving the business at a very vulnerable point, with no one able to take over. Libby, who, ironically, was busy with her own home renovations with Chris at the time of her death, took over the project management and cashflow of the renovation to see it through to completion. Thankfully, Libby’s renovation was the only project underway with Capabuild at the time.

Long story short, amazingly, Libby was able to fit into the swing of things quite naturally, and most of that was made possible by the incredible hands-on team at Capabuild, and of course Libby’s own attention-to-detail and super woman project management skills. When her own home build was complete, Libby jumped in with both feet to take on the running of Capabuild.

Libby has breathed new life into the business and in particular to the administration, on which she is a stickler for.

About Us

It’s personal to us – because its personal to you



We do home renovations. In fact, we love the closeness of working with proud and excited homeowners who have a vision. And, we don’t mind working with those homeowners who want to have a direct involvement in the project – actually, we encourage it!


However, we understand as well that many homeowners just don’t have the time. For those few, we can confidently say that your home is in good hands, and that we keep all our clients consistently updated as to the progress of the project.

On a daily basis


We pride ourselves on taking an already established and well-known business to another level, that being more digitally-driven and focused on building long-term relationships.



Moving forward


We want to, ultimately, build up a positive reputation in the industry where we receive consistent confident referrals and new projects from past satisfied clients. We would also like to establish a succession team to continue Capabuild for the next generation.
