Originally Built in 1866, the Hokitika fire station boasts a proud past stretching back to the West Coast gold rush. After being burned down and rebuilt twice, it has now been lovingly restored as the Hokitika Fire Station Apartments.

It is a given that strong foundations are a great place to start with any build, but when you have been up close and personal with seismic hazards, it's a top priority.

We will never be the cheapest price. We will never be the quickest. With cheap and quick builds you will find rough finishing and cut corners and in some cases even shody workmanship. We pride ourselves in providing a quality finish in a reasonable timeframe. We will be honest and upfront about the costs to build a house with no hidden or extra costs lurking around the corner.
There is nothing better than to look around your house at the beautiful workmanship and to take pride as friends and family come to visit. It is important to you and it is important to us that you are happy with the finishes when we hand a house over.
When we quote a build we will also provide a timeframe that we can complete the building work within. The time we quote is the time we deliver (subject to the elements of course). The number one cause of stress when building your house is to watch deadlines slide past while your half built house is exposed to the elements. We will only quote a job if we can deliver within our timeframes and we will be honest about the building times.
Local knowledge is very important. We build on the Wild West Coast of New Zealand and the weather here can be unforgiving to houses that are not designed to handle our wind and rain.
We will discuss your plans as well as impart our knowledge of what works and what doesn't here on the coast
We love concrete and all the amazing effects that can be created from such an abundent material. Not only do we do your standard concrete slab, we can create:
- polished concrete flooring,
- tilt panels,
- exposed concrete (paths, driveways and barbeque areas while landscaping),
- and concrete artwork.
We get very excited when a new customer comes to us with their concrete ideas. If you have a concrete idea, we'd love to here it.
As an IAG prefered repairer we can quickly and accurately assess any repairs you may need doing so that they are as painless as possible.
Contact us for any repair work and we will send some out as quick as possible to survey the damage and provide a quote to repair it.
