Having engaged with Chris to help us with organising the rebuild process has been an amazing experience. It has been so simple having him guide us through the process of getting plans organised, liaising with the building company ensuring everything is in place.

We have never built a house before, and the prospect was quite daunting, however, Chris guided us through the whole process, always taking note of our “wants”. We believe the end result will be fantastic.
We would urge any prospective client to make full use of the services offered as it sure lifts a load off your shoulders.

Chris as our project manager helped with many decisions that had to be made from appointing an architect through to furnishing the completed home. Decisions, decisions, decisions – there were so many which needed to be made. Chris was a great source of information. He made recommendations for us to consider and put us in touch with people who could advise us resulting in an outcome we are very happy with. Chris also had significant input into the floor plan resulting in an excellent outcome as, at our time in life, we have everything we need for daily living on the first floor of our two storey home.
We are very grateful for Chris’ support and encouragement. Even though we have been in our new home for six months he is still available to us and, as always, is just a phone call away. Chris was very easy to work with, understanding and worked to achieve the best result for us.

My house, damaged in the Christchurch quakes, It was deemed a rebuild by my insurance company. All of the other four houses on my driveway were also rebuilds, so the three insurance companies got together and decided they'd have one common team working on all five homes. When they put restrictions on the betterment I could pay for, I tried to withdraw and take the money. Their response was that if I pulled out, none of my neighbours' homes would be built either.
Chris undertook the job to liaise between me, the builder and the insurance people. He convinced them to allow me to build what I wanted.
When problems arose he'd say 'don't worry, I'll fix it'. And I didn't worry, because he did fix them. He also helped translate builder-speak into language I understood, and helped me to make those decisions I felt overwhelmed by.
After the houses were built and we moved back home, several of my (elderly) neighbours commented as to how stressful they had found the process, and the fact that their houses still had problems. Their comments just reinforced my gratitude to Chris, and even my thanks for the awful behaviour of the insurance companies who had driven me to employ him.
I strongly recommend Chris and his team to anyone starting a building project. He'll take the stress out of the process and help you to get the house you want.
