Ray & Cherie Schofield
We choose QPC because due diligence showed excellent feedback from past clients. The pricing/quote was in detail and clearly defined.
The build process was transparent with good communication from the project manager. The co-ordination considering the many elements concerned was very good.
We found QPC an excellent, professional organisation. They are very strong on process and detail and look to provide appropriate advice on options when required. They have progressive, excellent sub trades and are a pleasure to work with.
Gayle & Howard
We choose QPC mostly because of Alex’s professionalism.
He was approachable and interested in the house, he took the time to answer all our questions with patience, over several meetings; he “sharpened his or others’ pencils” for us; he took us to other sites of works in progress.
We also felt confident that the final works price would be close to the estimated price; we were assured there would be “no surprises” price-wise and there were very few.
Greg our project manager always responds promptly and addresses all our concerns with either solutions or explanations. He is often on-site when we are and answers impromptu questions and gives his opinion when asked. He appears genuinely concerned about the look of the house, and would volunteer alternative solutions backed up by photos or weblinks or addresses. Between him and Jeff, there was always a solution for any sticky issues.
Greg & Claire Walker
The build process was really pretty easy and we felt the QPC team did a great job of guiding us through each step. Brett in particular was superb at keeping us informed and giving us plenty of time to make each decision along the way. Overall the build process went very well. Quality of work has been excellent.
Excellent customer service and communication from Brett. He’s a real asset to QPC, I hope you look after him well.
TO WHOM THIS MAY CONCERN
In Dec 2013 I first met Alex Coburn to view the above property for purchase. The plans for renovation were very detailed and his willingness to work with me to suit my needs (dream) and budget became apparent immediately.
I’ve always wanted to build my own home but the stress of managing multiple trades and suppliers as well as managing planning consents was overwhelming. QPC provided me with the perfect solution.
QPC were happy to work with complete ‘open books’ providing full transparency around costs on a weekly basis and working with me collaboratively to achieve my goals. As the sole decision maker for the house build, I relied on their expertise and shared vision, not only for the exterior but also how to bring a coherent living space together inside.
Alex never tired of my quest to source quality materials at a good price, visiting suppliers with me, discussing every detail from lighting to landscaping. Alex was always there to find different solutions to accommodate my non-standard design requests. The trades on site were totally professional, committed and great to deal with.
After renovating 3 properties in Auckland and several before in the UK, I can honestly say that the professionalism and friendship QPC bring to their clients is outstanding. I have recommended QPC to many friends and I will no doubt engage them again for my next project.
Reference – extensive Remuera Renovation
Based on my experience as a first time home renovator, I can categorically say “thank goodness for QPC!” I had heard horror stories about the building industry, but none of those relate to QPC.
After three months intensive renovating, my 40 year old Remuera brick, tile and weatherboard townhouse now looks like a brand new home thanks to QPC’s professional, extensive and high quality workmanship. I researched the market to find you. You’ve more than lived up to your reputation and I have a home that is what I want.
Your building work is brilliant and all of your team have been a pleasure to deal with and so respectful, be it Simon and the builders, Kurt the electrician, Jeffrey on joinery, Michael and his tiling team, Eddie and Jessie the plumbers and the many others who formed part of the QPC network.
Simon, as Project Manager, and the QPC trades team work together like a well oiled machine, ensuring clear communication and timely connecting. I was always confident that I was in efficient hands. Simon kept me well informed with easy to follow advice at every step of the journey. This made my life a lot easier because building is complicated these days and I wanted to get this very right. I was most impressed with the many cost savings Simon suggested. And equally with the advice when you could see I was about to make a mistake!
You are trustworthy and highly competent Master Builders.
I am thrilled with the complete house transformation. To appoint QPC was emphatically the right choice. Dare I say, you would be a hard act to beat –pleasant, honest, trustworthy people who do a fantastic job with intelligent master building workmanship.
Finally, I’d like to add that renovating has many, many decisions. I can’t thank you enough for your patience while I came to grips and sometimes struggled with what to do. Taking time early on, in getting those choices right, paid off down the track. I particularly appreciate and respect the innovative advice you and Simon gave me in what was largely a ‘do it as you go’ renovation.
The QPC team knows what to do. You are a breath of fresh air and thank you again for your wonderful building work. I would recommend QPC in a heartbeat! And I would tell prospective clients to ‘listen to what you say!”
Clare Wade, Remuera.
Steve & Margaret Stephens
We had weekly site meetings with Greg and meeting minutes were prepared and sent out which I didn’t expect but was great and meant that even when they guys were dealing with Steve I knew exactly what was going on.
Alex has a great business and does a great job of looking after his customers, he is very conscious of keeping clients in the loop, happy and providing a good experience. We wish him every success.
Mark & Jo Rowley
Alex provided us with a very competitive quote which covered all of our requirements. He clearly explained the process to us so we knew exactly what to expect during the project. A detailed project plan was provided and weekly site meetings kept us fully appraised on all aspects of the job.
Our project manager was excellent to work with. Brett kept an eye on everything and always let us know what was coming up next. He was very approachable and his expertise throughout the project was much appreciated.
Steve & Sharyn Brown
With a growing family, we were fast running out of room in our little 120sqm home, so we decided to renovate as we enjoy the neighbourhood we live in. This was our first major renovation and we chose QPC Builders following our initial meetings with Alex, whom we felt comfortable that they could give us the result we wanted within our budget.
Alex provided detailed quotes and clearly explained the process to us from the start.
Our Project Manager Greg did a great job in keeping us updated with regular onsite meetings, documented minutes of the meetings and regular e-mails and phone calls throughout the entire process. He was always available to meet us onsite to answer any queries and to give his expert advice where needed.
Our renovation was completed in the timeframe given and we were on budget.
We found the QPC team to be very professional, friendly and easy to deal with. We highly recommend QPC Builders and thanks to Greg and team for a great job
John and Margaret Da Silva
We have really enjoyed working with the team at QPC – the two people we have had the most to do with from the beginning to end – have been Alex and Brett. Both have been a real pleasure to deal with. Alex has always communicated clearly, and given many suggestions on the options available, many of which we went with, and have resulted in the best outcome. As this is our first major renovation, we were fairly inexperienced at the outset – so it was really good to be able to lean on Alex for advice – and this advice was given with our best interests at heart for the best outcomes. Brett as the Project Manager was excellent to deal with – his attention to detail and follow up was superb. We were regularly updated on timelines, and we found that our scheduled onsite weekly meetings were most productive – Brett attended all of these, and Alex also attended the majority of these. We had 2 very good builders who took care of the bulk of the renovation – the second was Simon – and his care and genuine manner to go the extra mile to make sure you got what you imagined, has been outstanding. We did feel like we were very well looked after.
