“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.

Ron ParkinsDevelopment Manager, Kiwi Property

This project is incredibly challenging with numerous complexities due to it being a live retail environment and due to the structural asbuilt structure not being consistent with the asbuilt documentation. This has caused Naylor Love to rise to the challenge due to the numerous changes and meet the challenging deadlines and to ensure minimal impact on the retail tenancies. …

As the Main Contractor for this project, we have observed Naylor Love Auckland Limited to be extremely organized and thoroughly professional throughout the project, with the ability to adapt as challenges are faced, keeping the best for project and client in mind.”

Leigh BookerProject Manager, Pragmatix

“Extending the intensive care unit at Wellington Hospital from 18 beds to 24, while keeping it clinically clean and operational 24/7, was never going to be easy. The Naylor Love team needed to make substantial alterations in the middle of the existing unit, while it continued to operate.
Judges were impressed that the project team achieved their brief and developed good working relationships with the hospital staff and patients throughout this intense project. This is testimony to their construction practice and communication skills.”
