Client Testimonials

DC took on building our 108 m2 shed.  Work proceeded when promised and was to budget.  Also took on doing extra immediately prior to Xmas so we were able to store stuff there over what turned into a wet period over Christmas. Very happy with quality and really easy to work with.  

Regret not getting DC to quote for our main build.

I would highly recommend James and his team for any project. He constantly displays excellent attention to detail and is focused strongly on quality and workmanship. He also communicates strongly and is an upfront, trustworthy person not afraid to challenge the status quo. Ours was a challenging build process and James & Co nailed it within tight deadlines.

Downs construction did a bathroom reno for us.

The communication and project managing was great.  They delivered in a tight time line and the workmanship was very good.

Thanks, James and team

We had James & his Team, prep & lay our concrete for our new garage. Would highly recommend Downs Construction Ltd, excellent to work with, very professional and tidy, they did an awesome job. Thanks

We had James and his team complete a logistically challenging job of deck replacement and sleep-out for us on our Kawau property recently. We have subsequently had James to replace the roof as well. The access was extremely difficult and required helicopter use for supplies at times. The job was done with excellent workmanship and professionalism.

We are extremely pleased with the finished result and would not hesitate to recommend Downs Construction to others.

During the winter of 2016 Kawau Boating club contracted Downs Construction Ltd to refurbish the ablution block at the KBC club rooms. Considering the logistics of taking on a major refurbishment on an island that has no infrastructure as in roads or even a local builders supply and also the fact that in the middle of winter Kawau can be a little inclement to say the least, Downs Construction handled the project with ease and integrity.

The project included a complete strip out and re-installing new shower cubicles and toilet facilities for both female and male. They then moved on and constructed a deck and roof structure for us to install our new walk-in chiller/freezer to be in.

The team worked to minimise the time frame of construction and no task was too difficult. James managed the project for us and we would certainly recommend them for any further projects.
