choosing D M Wilson Construction Ltd for their building project.
"The fact that we didn't meet the builder until the day we received the keys to our new holiday home in Hanmer in December 2021, is testament to the very good processes and communication channels that the company has in place."
- John and Sharon
Even though the build took a couple of months longer than planned – due to a lockdown, delays in getting materials, and some severe weather events – the experience has been a very positive one for us. It's the first time we've been involved in a new build and it's been largely stress-free.
The company prides itself on the quality of its work, and it's been very evident throughout that the written guarantees have been backed up in reality. One example of this is the painstaking attention given to the exterior and interior stonework which helps make the house look like it belongs in the alpine environment.
Because we don't live in Hanmer, the timely and detailed communications – mostly via Buildertrend – have been essential. The regular photos and videos have been excellent. We especially appreciated the open and direct responses to questions we had or issues we wanted to raise. And another feature of the communication was the transparency by the team members when something wasn't up to standard or a mistake had been made (noting that the problems were few and far between).
We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Wilson Construction to other potential clients, and actually did just that during our first visit when someone turned up at the door and asked us about our experience. We said: “In one word – excellent”.
"This was our first ever house build which could have been a really stressful experience"
- Shelley & Darron
It is a pleasure to write this testimonial for David and his team as they helped create our dream home and should be proud of their workmanship. We are stoked with the end result.
"A member of New Zealand Certified Builders Association since July 2016"
A member of New Zealand Certified Builders Association since July 2016, Wilson Construction saw the benefits of being involved with Certified Plans at a very early stage and joined the scheme in December 2016. Certified Plans is a members benefit of NZCB offering a collection of 32 different architecturally designed plans that are ready to build or can be customised to suit a particular lifestyle. Seeing a niche market in Hanmer Springs for a variety of easily laid out plans, coupled with the flexibility of plan design and systems, Wilson Construction made the most of this opportunity and became proactive using the Certified Plans initiative as intended by the Association. To date, David has built four homes from the Certified Plans collection ranging from 140m2 to 240m2 and all tailored to suit individual requirements & specific locations. Three of these client builds came directly from leads generated & followed up by the sales system attached to the scheme. So impressed by the enthusiasm and results David has achieved in such a short time by maximising the Certified Plans initiative, NZCB has recently completed an article on Wilson Construction to be printed in their bi monthly In House magazine. We wish David well with future Certified Plan builds.
"The entire team was great and helpful and showed us around to explain things when we were able to travel and see the progress. We were very happy with the entire project and would warmly recommend David and his team at Wilson Construct."
- Cristina and Gabriel
We’ve met David when we were looking for a property in Hanmer Springs for our retirement. David was happy to have a look at the plans and give us some advice on what was possible and what not.
Once we decided we would like to build a house, David helped us find the architect and was involved in the entire process – from design through approvals and choosing appliances and finishing’s. During the construction stage, David talked us through each step and was flexible in making any changes that were required.
As we were not in New Zealand during the build, we had access to the Buildertrend app where we could check on the progress and see photos and relevant documents. The work is of the highest standard, so now we have a beautiful house that we will be able to enjoy when retirement comes.
David’s involvement did not stop after the keys were delivered, but he kept in touch and if there was anything that we needed or small adjustments, he was always involved and happy to help.
"David and his team completed renovation work on another property we have in Hanmer. We were very pleased with the results so had no hesitation in going back to David for the new build."
David’s quote was very competitive so price was not an issue compared to other quotes. However, David had the advantage in that we knew the excellent standard of workmanship from the previous job. This gave us a degree of confidence that the result would be excellent.
David was a lot of help making minor adjustments during the building process.
We are extremely happy with the final result. The design from Threefold Architecture complemented by the building workmanship of Wilson Construction make the house a very enjoyable place to live in.
Working with David was very easy. The build was always under control and we were kept abreast of any parts of the building that may have needed our input. If there was an issue David always had a options/solutions.
Because we live in Christchurch we had only limited contact with David’s team. However, the result speaks for itself, and David and his team we congratulate on a job well done.
Wilson Construction being based in Hanmer is a big plus. We know from previous builds that there can be issues if the builder is based outside of Hanmer.
"Wilson Construction’ made to our holiday home, we could not be happier!"
- Sue (Acheron Heights)
Ron and myself would just like to thank you for the fabulous job ‘Wilson Construction’ made to our holiday home, we could not be happier! We are new to the Hanmer area and had concerns about hiring tradesmen in a new community, however these concerns were soon diminished. Your professionalism, integrity and communication gave us tremendous peace of mind from our initial meeting right through the whole process, couple that with your patience in answering any queries we had and communicating regularly with us made the process smooth and exciting. The standard of workmanship and attention to detail was outstanding and although our home is older our new deck, porch and steps blend so well that they look like they were built as one, many of our neighbours have commenting on how great it all looks. It was a pleasure working with ‘Wilson Construction’ and both Ron and I are happy to recommend you to any who may be looking to contract your company in the future.
"We are really happy with our new holiday home"
- Justin and Sarah
We are really happy with our new holiday home in Hanmer Springs built by Wilson Construction. The home is finished to an extremely high standard and the attention to detail is superb. As we don’t live in Hanmer Springs we were concerned about not being close enough to get to the site as often as we would like.
