    "Ben and his team did some a large extension on my home. The project was meant to take 7months and they finished it in 5 1/2months. A couple of things I noticed:
    -Every builder was dressed immaculately.
    -Every Builder and Trade that was provided was so friendly and helpful
    -Every morning I was greeted by the Foreman 7am on the dot with a flat white!
    -The spacea they worked in was always left so tidy and clean
    -Ben met with me twice a week. 1. Walk through of progress 2.Financials and how we were tracking + any issues which arose

    -I was sent videos and photos every day with an update.

    -I didnt have to stress or worry about when things were happening or what was happening - Ben took care of everything and kept me in the loop the whole way.

    Very impressed and what a great company of professionals.

    "Craft Construction started our renovation well but are ending it very poorly. Halfway through our job their business partnership (between the 2 brothers) split and every slowly derailed thereafter. We awarded them the building, project management and finishing of our project and the finishing & project management has really let the whole project down. Ben missing without notice many preplanned project meetings. It's disappointing to see the breaking down of their communication. Accepting responsibility in meetings and then completely changing tack on emails.. using weak excuses like a cat could have scratched then windows. I would definitely not recommend them for future projects."
    Ben Holdich responded:
    "Hi Andrea We have in fact emailed you on more than 3 occasions and have had no response. You have accused our painter of scratching a window when he in fact did not. We have tried to work with you in have the issues resolved via an inspection but again you will not provide the nessecary documents for us to do this. I have addressed the same in every meeting. We finished the work last year in October and have been waiting for you to do the remaining work you requested to do yourselves since. We have never accepted responsibilty during any meetings and have always have the same reaction regarding the windows we have had you threaten us with Halo and Nzcb claims when our workmanship is excellent and we had completed the work. I've always told you we would get you a price for window replacement and I've communicated that from the start. This project is more than ready for a final inspection but we are unable to do so as you will not.communicate with me or.respond to my emails? "

    "I purchased land in Greenhithe and was looking for a company who aligned with my values to work with me in creating my dream home.

    After many meetings with various companies I just couldn't find the right fit. Whilst I was in the warehouse, St Lukes I over heard a conversation between a couple who were trying to find water containers for their workers and discussing the highest SPF to protect them. Knowing two owners cared for their staff how they were holding theirs in such high regard, i introduced myself.

    Being greeted so warmly and kindly given i was a complete stranger was lovely. I explained i had just finalized the house with the architect and engineer and was council consented.. They quickly cleared their day, purchased their items for the builders. Ben then followed me out to the property and had a look over the plans, his wife joined us an hour later.

    They spend 3 hours going over the plans, asking questions i never thought of and by the time we finsihed our discusions, I felt my home was already in the right hands.

    The quote was done partially by Ben and his wife but also certain aspects through a QS whcih i was happy to pay for as they were trasnparent in not feeling they could give me an accurate figure within the timeframe i had.

    Once pricing was done, we got the contracts under way and we commenced immediately. Ben project managed with 8builders, all of which were so kind and caring. They greeted me warmily every time i was onsite and I was even lucky enough to have Bens P.A dash out and get me a yum coffee.

    I felt i really made great friends and companu from my home build. We had a couple of hick ups with budget as I made a few major changes whcih was to be expected. But they were honest about the cost increase before i finalised the changes. Which I am glad i did.

    Rhiannon worked hard on my interior and exterior colours and picked out some beautiful wallpapers to compliment the home in the style i had dreamt.

    I am really happy with everything and the only downfall was i wish i had budgeted for the landscape and factored in the landscape.

    "I have just had a full interior / exterior renovation done by Craft Construction. Both my husband are absolutely stunned by the results and the finish. We were not sure where to start or what to do and Ben the owner of Craft really helped us out. They introduced us to an amazing architect who created us some 3d models and great plans, I noticed Ben was heavily involved through this processed so we didn't have to have extra chats later on, he was already up to speed. He had some great suggestions with the architect which saved us money and he put in a huge effort with his team. We felt we became very close with Ben and his team. They could always accommodate our changes and requests. Ben was always on hand and available to us. They worked on some weekends if we asked them too, they respected us living in the house and were quiet through certain hours so we weren't woke up early or disrupted. when they arrived, they would always let us know. The other builders were lovely and gave us advice when needed. We thought this was going to be really hard and stressful, but it was easy. Using the builder trend made any changes so quick and easy. Be was lovely to deal with, was so polite, was honest and I really trusted him. Craft had provided us with trades also, we have great experiences with them especially the electrical, steve at bridge was fantastic and accommodated all of our changes. every one seemed to always be where they were and did they work. not once did i see phones out or chit chat going on. We were given free services of designers and we got samples left right and center so we could make a decision that we wouldn't regret. We cannot wait to use Craft for our new build next year. Cannot recommend them higher enough."

    "A great experience from time of first contact to completion of the job. A well priced quote led to us signing up Craft Construction to rebuild our outdoor stairs.

    Ben led the work which was carried out very professionally and to a great specification. The site was always clean and tidy and the work exemplary. We will be using them again to help with work and would highly recommend "

    "Josh and Ben provided a quote for a small bathroom project that fitted into a gap in their schedule. They were extremely reliable, and did a great job for us as quoted. Communication was very good, their sub-contractors were excellent and the work flowed smoothly. The billing process at the end was efficient and very professionally done, with full transparency of subcontractor and materials invoices. We are extremely happy with the final result. "

    "Craft Construction completed maintenance work at my property in Nov and Dec 2018. There were a range of tasks from installing a large new window, foundation work, fixing leaks/waterproofing and gutter issues, to constructing new deck and wall areas. Ben and his team gave me a clear idea of how long I would wait for them (2 months as they had a lot of work on), they called me a couple of weeks out to confirm their start date, and arrived and completed their work just as they said they would. I received regular texts and photos of progress (as I was working during the day) as well as phone calls to discuss and make decisions as required. Ben is very knowledgeable and helpful in suggesting solutions to help with decisions, and in making choices relating to budget versus value.

    I have been impressed with Craft Construction's professional approach to their work and to the contract process - invoices were sent to me weekly which enabled me to keep an accurate and up to date record of spend against my budget.

    The workmanship is of high quality and I am very pleased with the overall result. I have worked with a few builders over the years and Craft is by far the best building experience I have had.

    "I had my townhouse in Northcote renovated. Craft Construction was really easy to deal with, they always answered my questions, which I had many off. Thank you for finishing the job on time and budget. I'm really enjoying the house and the standard of finish is excellent. I would highly recommend you to my friends and family.

There was a lot of fiddley interior work in a small unit and we had several discussions about how to modify things along the way. I had confidence in there expertise and advice. They had pleasant staff and a good team of reliable contractors for plumbing, electrical, tiling who they know well and work with regularly."
