Waterview Testimonial
Sophie & Justin MowdayWaterview Project

The Crate team made our renovation dreams come true with a redo and extension on a beautiful old villa we fell in love with. The workmanship was to a very high standard and the integrity of the architectural design was really brought to life in a stunning family home we are very proud of.

All this and it came in on budget! Would highly recommend Crate. In fact, we are now working with them again on another, bigger renovation.”

Waterview Testimonial
Brendon GleesonMeadowbank Renovation

"A previous builder fell through for our renovation, which meant we entered into the project without a fixed price quote, instead opting for charge-up method. Naturally we were nervous about this approach.

Not once has James or his crew given us reason to regret this decision – the work was always completed to a high standard – with thorough attention to detail. Timelines were always met and pricing was fair.

You won’t regret choosing Crate for your project, we wouldn’t build with anyone else."

Waterview Testimonial
Jacquie MockridgeDevonport Project

"The attention to detail never wavered, nor did the ability to find the best solution to unexpected events. We did not engage an architect for this project, instead using a draughtsman. As Fraser and James have a very sharp eye for design and detail their ideas and opinions were always valuable in the decision making process. We welcomed their involvement as they had no difficulty understanding our design objectives. The entire project was managed very efficiently both from a labour and materials perspective.

As a result of having Crate Construction working on our building project we feel we are with out question living in one of Auckland's most well built, designed homes and we expect we will continue to enjoy it for the rest of our lives. There was never a day that I did not look forward to seeing them on site!"
