“Our deepest appreciation to everyone involved from Naylor Love for your efforts and energy that you put in to this project.”

“This build was the most significant project that I have been involved with as Principal. Naylor Love have delivered above and beyond contractually ensuring that the project ran smoothly and efficiently from start to finish. Naylor Love achieved the project ahead of schedule so that we could move in for the next school term. The workmanship resulted in a quality building that will be enjoyed by our students and community for years to come.”

“In all, Naylor Love have demonstrated their ability to manage, carry out and deliver complex projects in challenging environments, but with outstanding results.

I would be more than happy to support the inclusion of Naylor Love in consideration for any construction project, and look forward to the opportunity to work with them again in the future.”

“The judges felt the approach taken by the whole team, including the client, to select the materials and construct the façade displayed a very high level of collaboration. They were also impressed by the detailed alignment of the fit-out and felt the quality of the workmanship was at the highest level.”

“The site was landlocked with adjoining properties and two street frontages in the heart of Christchurch’s CBD, which provided some challenges. Other issues included constructing a basement with a high water-table, ground contamination, soft spots, and archaeological finds…

This well-designed and integrated expansion of an iconic Christchurch department complex is a deserving category winner.”
