BuildSmart Testimonials

  • Flavia Wilson

    We chose Buildsmart to assemble our new Allwood kitset studio, a job which turned out more complicated than anticipated.

    Thankfully the well-oiled team at Buildsmart stepped up to the challenge and now we have an adorable, sturdy, Dunedin-proofed (weather-wise) mezzanine studio-sleepout in our backyard. This was the first time we had used Buildsmart, but for future builds and renovations we wouldn’t have anyone else!

  • Tim Calder

    Buildsmart manage the repairs, maintenance, and renovations on all my student investment properties, while I’m based in Germany.

    Thanks to their advanced use of the latest technology I receive videos of quotes, project updates, and suggestions which makes it very easy to understand what’s involved. I also receive PDF quotes and invoices directly into my Xero accounting software so I can easily keep track of expenditure. What I like most about Buildsmart is that like me they are constantly thinking about my properties, what I can do to improve them, and even send me a short email & video if they spot something untoward if they happen to be in the area driving past one of them. Buildsmart really make it easy and affordable to manage investments which gives me great confidence while based overseas.

  • Chris Crooks
    We engaged with Buildsmart to install a wall and cavity slider in our master bedroom as well as paint the exterior of our home. We were thrilled that Buildsmart were able to begin and finish both jobs within our expected time-frame, with both completed to a high standard. There were a few times during the project where communication could have been a bit better (this was generally around the delivery and moving of the scaffolding), however with the job now complete we have nothing but praise and gratitude to the team at Buildsmart who did everything they could to ensure they met our deadlines. We would have no hesitation in recommending or engaging with Buildsmart in the future. Thank you Glen and the rest of the team at Buildsmart!!
