Architectural Award Winner

"Graham Coppock from PROSPECS managed the recent renovations of my home in Ponsonby.

"It was an extensive project with a lot of maintenance to be addressed, before even attending to the finer touches I wanted to incorporate. Those finer touches, with the help of our award-winning architect, turned out to be projects that would challenge quite a number of firms that were interested in quoting for the work.

"At this stage Graham was recommended to me for the building work and it became quite apparent he was the right person to also take over the full project management.

"I found him great to deal with, with an ability to listen and implement the ideas and features I wanted. He was honest, friendly and had the ability to make things happen. The tradesmen he contracted and employed worked to a high quality of finish and in a timely manner.

"I've now been in my home for seven months. I still enjoy and appreciate the effort his team took in achieving the excellence of a job well done.

"I think the key recommendation is that if I decided to under-take any other renovations or building projects, my first choice would be Graham and the team from Prospecs."

Greenlane / Epsom Renovation

"Prospecs worked on two major jobs for us – our rental property and our family home.

"We were really impressed that we were only charged for the labour at an hourly rate plus the cost price of materials. Graham was able to pass on his discounted supplier rates to us direct – it meant the renovations were considerably cheaper than they could have been.

"The rental property renovation in Greenlane involved a complete overhaul of an old 60’s style 2 bedroom flat, to modernize it. Graham and his team at Prospecs successfully stripped it all back to framework state, created a more open living space, replaced all the jib on the walls, and replaced the kitchen and bathroom completely. Graham’s experience really shone though and he was able to advise us on all sorts ensuring the renovation process went as smoothly as we could wish for, and his team did a great job! The rental value increased substantially afterwards.

"Situated in Epsom, our home is a late 50’s style house with vertical cedar which required extensive renovation work to be completed in stages, since we continue to live in parts of the house which weren’t being renovated. This renovation required every window be replaced, walls moved, a chimney knocked down, a new bathroom placed in, cladding on the outside replaced completely, changes to the driveway etc. There were challenges at times establishing the best way to go about things (mainly our decision making process), but the Prospecs team were patient, always worked with us closely to come up with the best solution and in turn gave us confidence they would take care of whatever was required. There were numerous trades people that needed to be dealt with, and Graham as project manager really excelled at this. We found all the guys in the Prospecs team very considerate and accommodating which made all the difference since we were living on a building site.

"The results are just stunning and this renovation experience is one we feel very rewarded by now. We are looking forward to getting the Prospecs team back to complete the next 2 stages in the very near future.

"If you’re looking for an Auckland builder that does a great job, is trustworthy, professional and hard working then I would strongly recommend getting in touch with Graham from Prospecs. We would highly recommend him and his team to take on any building job."

Mt Albert Refurbishment & Renovation

We recently undertook a major refurbishment and addition to our property in Mt Albert and Prospecs (Building) Ltd were our main contractors.

Ours is a fairly unique early century bungalow with precast concrete walls and rough cast plaster cladding, this certainly provided its challenges but Graham and his team were up to the task. From day 1 they were onsite, they did not drift off to other jobs leaving us waiting and the job was completed on time and within budget.

The project was completely managed by Prospecs and all aspects of the job were looked after, requiring only our decision making as and when required.

We are very happy with our new home and would confidently recommend Prospecs to anyone considering building or renovating. We would certainly use them again and have recommended their services to friends who have used them and they have also been very pleased with their work.
