What our clients say about us
“From day one, you and your team have worked hard, extremely hard, for me! To think one year on and never an inkling of a cross word between us says it all. At the same time you have quietly under committed and always over delivered. You’re honest to a fault and you’re thoughtful and kind… I am so grateful.“
“I have done two renovations and two new builds with Coromandel Construction.
Nick and Yvonne Hoffman
“Dear Duncan, We have been truly privileged to have you mastermind our little build. Your work is exceptional and your leadership likewise… we always look forward to when you arrive in the mornings, listening to your hearty laugh as you organise the day ahead with your men.”
Joe and Carol Clark
“Our project in the Coromandel was a challenging build on a steep bush covered site in a remote area. Our initial contact with Duncan was a breath of fresh air, as he was enthusiastic about the project and his attention to detail and timely responses at the quotation stage were impressive. During the build, we found the Coromandel Construction team to be hard working and professional and their tradesman-ship was of a high quality, and the site was always very tidy.
Communication during the build was also great, with regular updates and photos of progress. We faced some challenges building through winter with the Coromandel weather, and due to the difficult site, however we found Duncan to be understanding and innovative through this time to get the job done. I highly recommend the Coromandel Construction team to anyone thinking of building in the North Coromandel.”
“I just want to thank you again for the wonderful work you did for me. I am so glad that you were the one to build my house. You have been so supportive and helpful with the project management and so patient with me in explaining things. Thank you Duncan, it was wonderful working with you. All our communications were fun and easy.“
Hamish and Jeanette Charleson
“Duncan undertook construction of a large deck on a sloping section in 2011 for us – with construction not being straight forward due to existing structures. Time frames were very tight (due to TCDC delays) but Duncan completed the job on time AND on budget.
Duncan was very accommodating in dealing with TCDC requirements and extras. The level of communication is very good as is the quality of workmanship. We would not hesitate in employing Duncan again for further projects; Duncan comes fully recommended.”
Tony and Sue Norrington
“Duncan was the lead contractor and builder of an extensive upgrade and re-modelling of our house in Coromandel. In addition, he co-ordinated all sub-contractors and called for and dealt with all building permit issues.
Duncan and Deborah Bayne are really honest and capable people. Our building project spanned about six or seven months and of course there were times when we needed to talk over minor issues with Duncan. However, never within that period were we and Duncan at logger heads. We could always talk round the issue and it was always resolved without friction.
Duncan’s work was of very high quality and he also worked very hard for us. In fact these attributes caused me to recommend Duncan to a friend of mine who is doing an upgrade job and he has been very impressed with Duncan too.”
“Coromandel Construction was engaged by us in the construction of our new house. Some of the many professional qualities of Duncan and his team were:
> Duncan put in a lot of time and effort listening to what we wanted. The listening and advising did not stop throughout the entire project and it has been much appreciated. We found advice provided to be sound and cost effective.
> When something was agreed on or organized then we knew that it would be done and done properly.
> We were kept fully informed as the work progressed, and we were consulted at all times.
> There were no budget surprises.
I would like to recommend Coromandel Construction to anyone considering taking on a builder/project manager.”
