We acted as Project Manager for a large and complicated residential refurbishment with Colin Gregg Builders during 2008. The contract was approximately 5 months in duration with limited architectural documentation and a client that demanded an exceptionally high level of detail and finish. This required extensive coordination by the Main Contractor with over 15 specialist sub-trades and several consultants.Colin Gregg and his team delivered the project within the project’s deadlines and met the quality level in all areas. However, over and above the outcome, we believe that the dedication, organisation and communication by his company during the contract period ensured a hassle free delivery.The key strengths of the company in relation to construction are:1. High level of organisation including meeting schedules, key issue reporting and financial updates.
2. Effective programming and anticipation of critical items to maintain the project’s critical path.
3. A fully consolidated construction team dedicated to quality and the overall project’s interests.
4. Professional site presence including health and safety.
5. An ability to meet the clients’ expectations commensurate with high end residential construction.
6. An understanding of local authority regulations and obligations of both resource and building consents.
In summary, we have pleasure in recommending Colin Gregg to any prospective clients and would welcome further discussion or clarification if required.

It is my pleasure to provide a reference for Gregg Builders Limited. Gregg Builders built our house at 83 Harakeke Street, between July and December 2005. We found Gregg Builders to undertake their work in a professional and friendly manner at all times. Their work was to a high standard and our house was built on a time and to budget, which was no mean feat in what is currently an extremely busy industry.My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed Colins approach and we have no hesitation in recommending Gregg Builders Limited for residential building work.

I am writing this reference on behalf of Colin Gregg and his company Gregg Builders Ltd. Colin has built two homes for me and my family over the last 5 years, and although neither house was particularly easy to build, both were finished on time, and budget and to the highest standard of workmanship. Colin took the time before building to sit down and sort out any potential pitfalls, and any problems that arose during or after construction were quickly dealt with.I found Colin and all his staff to be hard working, friendly and courteous, and only happy to explain things to me as they went along. The end result is a house that is well built, comfortable to live in and is constantly admired by friends and strangers alike.
I have no hesitation in recommending Gregg Builders Ltd for any building project, and am sure you will enjoy the same level of professionalism that I have.

Colin Gregg employs a staff, consisting of young energetic dedicated builders. They worked late into the night and early mornings. They lived on site and completed our homestead of 550 sqm in five months, from June until October. (Conditions including ice, snow and howling winds!) Kate, Colin’s wife was also very much part of the team.There was never a delay for the subcontractors? Colin had them well organized in advance. There was no job too big or too small for Colin and his men. He is a superb organizer and helped us through issues with great tact and diplomacy! Always keeping his sense of humour and would go out of his way to show us examples and ideas.
We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 months with Gregg Builders Resulting in a beautiful home of the highest standard of workmanship? and new friendship. We would thoroughly recommend them for any project.
