Our business is built on our clients’ successes, and we are proud to have formed relationships with clients and consultants that have lasted for decades.

“I am writing to acknowledge our appreciation of the involvement of Naylor Love in the construction of two projects in Christchurch that we were the architects for: The Spark Office building and the 9 level Paragon apartment building.  Both projects were highly complex demanding jobs for the same client that required a high level of commitment, skill, planning and a real attention to detail.

Naylor Love excelled in meeting the challenges and the end result are two projects of very high quality that are setting a new standard for Christchurch and New Zealand for both high rise apartments and commercial office / retail buildings.

They are both base isolated, low damage designs which creates construction challenges well beyond the norm…  The two projects required an experienced contractor who understood these complications and demands and could go the extra mile for the client. Naylor Love proved themselves on these projects and were a responsive great team to deal with.  The superb final result for both buildings speaks for itself.”

“Ray made a point of talking about how superb Naylor Love have been through this defect / closeout period which is rare in our industry. From the Jasmax perspective we have also loved working with your team on this project.”

Nick MoyesPrincipal, Jasmax

This project had its challenges and complications, but when faced with these the professionalism and collaboration of the Naylor Love team was exemplary and they overcame all hurdles put in front of them. Despite these challenges the project went to plan and maintained alignment with a tight build programme. The team at Naylor Love were forward thinking and all issues that arose were managed on a professional manner and overcome without too any difficulties.

The coordination of the many trades involved in this project was excellent and the standard of finishes achieved inside and out were of the highest quality. There was a great team culture on the site and everyone was courteous and a pleasure to deal with.

We have received an overwhelmingly positive response from our customers and staff, and this is testimony to the professionalism and integrity that Naylor Love and the wider consultant team demonstrated throughout this project.

This was the third project we have undertaken with Naylor Love in as many years and each has elevated the expectations to a new standard. It is with great anticipation that we look forward to the next project with the Naylor Love team.

“It was a pleasure to work on this project with such a professional team from Naylor love. The performance of the Contractor was excellent from the commencement of the project until completion. We especially found Naylor Love to be very proactive about dealing with issues that were not of their making. They worked collaboratively with the client and consultant team at all times to ensure that the project was on track. Their communication skills were great.

I would have to say that after 40 years working in the construction industry, this team would be one of the best I have worked with. They were committed to ensuring that the client was able to open the market on time and could move into a quality building.

We would not hesitate to recommend another negotiated contract with Naylor Love, Queenstown.”

“…we found the Naylor Love team to be proactive, organised and thorough. Their experience shone through when dealing with issues as they arose on site, particularly when coordinating with a large team.

The communication from site was relaxed yet efficient and the issues that were raised to Powell Fenwick (Structural and Civil consultants) were well thought through and, where possible, were offered to us along with a solution for our consideration. We were also impressed by the firm stance that Naylor Love took throughout the project to ensure that quality was never compromised and that the project was delivered on time and to the high standards they set.

Powell Fenwick always enjoys working with an experienced contractor like Naylor Love on large projects like 3 Parks New World and has no hesitation in recommending them.”

“Back in 2015 we undertook First floor Office fit out in the Donald Reid building in Vogel Street… We were extremely happy with the way the work was completed. Also the friendly manner of all staff and their attitude to us made for a great worksite.

This year we undertook further development work and had no hesitation engaging Naylor Love Ltd. for this work. Once again we had a fantastic team… and again great results.

…I would like to say on behalf of Donald Reid Properties Ltd that working with Naylor Love Ltd. has been a real pleasure and we would certainly use them again and strongly recommend them.”

Ian McLeanBuilding Manager, Donald Reid Properties Ltd

I have always been impressed with Naylor Love’s collaborative approach to the projects, commencing with contractor involvement in the design and methodology for construction, while also demonstrating a very clear appreciation of the live retail working environment. They have regularly provided innovative solutions to difficult situations, particularly where our needs have changed during construction.
