"Workmanship was completed to a very high standard"

"cbconstruction have recently completed our development on the corner of Katere Road and Devon Road. It has been a pleasure to work with Chris and the Team. There was a weekly site meeting which kept us up to date with the progress of the development . Chris always welcomed us on site at any time so we could enjoy the experience of the development. Stage One of our project was under a tight time frame but was completed on time, even though the weather conditions were difficult. Chris made sure that the workmanship was completed to a very high standard, not only by his own staff but by all the subcontractors. It was the right decision for us to have cbconstruction do our development and we are very proud of the final outcome."

"It truly is a dream that came true"

"We just wanted to tell you how incredibly pleased we are with the house you built for us in Warea.  It truly is a dream that came true.  From beginning to end, the entire experience was painless, fulfilling and  surprisingly enjoyable.  Your two builders, Horrie and Trent, showed tremendous work ethic and actually taught us a lot about building.  All your subcontractors were also superb.  Your personal supervision and leadership on the project was excellent and let us know throughout that the boss was taking pride in our house.  Most importantly, you and your staff kept us on budget while not sacrificing any standards in the materials used to build.  
Our house actually turned out much better than we ever imagined!
Please feel free if you'd ever like to use us as a reference.  Again, we are 100% pleased with the entire job of CBC Construction and would recommend you highly for anyone considering building a house."

"The quality of the work completed by Chris and his building team cannot be faulted"

"Chris and his team completed the building of my home in May 2010.  It was a six month project (including the Christmas shut-down period), and was completed exactly on time, as estimated by Chris.

The quality of the work completed by Chris and his building team cannot be faulted, and I can not say enough about their professional, reliable, punctual work ethic.  Their communicationb during the whold project exceeded expectation, and they were a pleasure to work with.  I appreciated the advice they offered.

The team of subontractors employed by the company were also a pleasure to work with, and the quality of their work was equally as good.

I have no hesitation in referring the Chris Bell building team for a high quality building project"

"Outstanding service and quality of workmanship that CBC has achieved on our project"


"I would like to thank Chris Bell Construction & Project Managment Ltd (CBC) for bringing our dream to reality.  It was an enjoyable process working with you, your staff and sub-contractors.  This letter is to recognise the outstanding service and quality of workmanship that CBC has achieved on our project.

We note that there was no cost increase on the original fixed term contract (only our requested variations), and that the project was completed on time.

Our building site is located in a high profile area within the business area of the Oakura township and adjoining are residential properties.  The feedback we received from our neighbours during construction was very positive regarding the CBC team.

I have no hesitation in recommending Chris Bell Construction & Project Management Ltd for construction projects, particularly for their ability to understand and contribute to the whole process.  They have extensive skills and experience, and coupled with excellent project management."

"I was very impressed with the level of honesty, efficiency, perfectionism and communication right throughout the build"

"Chris Bell Construction project managed and built our house at 12 Sackville Street, New Plymouth in 2009/2010.

I was very impressed with the level of honesty, efficiency, perfectionism and communication right throughout the build.  I had always heard and continue to hear stories of how stressful a home build is, however Chris and his team made the process simple and enjoyable.  I have no hesitation in recommending Chris Bell Construction, indeed I look forward to engaging their services in a new project soon."

"Transferred our dream house from paper to reality"

"Chris Bell and his team has transferred our dream house from paper to reality.  From day one the whole process was a great experience.  The way Chris managed my architect, his team, the sub-contractors & myself was incredibly professional.  The weekly meetings were invaluable & meant everyone knew what was going on.  Thsi resulted in the process running smoothly & on time.  I respected Chris's honesty & transparency during the process and this confirmed that I had made the right decision when I chose to use CBC.

The workmanship from Oz and his team was fantastic - I was impressed by the attention to detail.  The way that they operated around the site & the way they left the site highlighted to me their pride & work ethic during the build.  I want to thank Chris & his team for all their hard work & dedication & look forward with them again in the future."

"The team was professional, reliable and offered us excellent advice on decisions"

"We would like to thank Chris and his amazing team of builders (Trent and Horry) and subcontractors for a job well done on our recent house renovations.  The team was professional, reliable and offered us excellent advice on decisions we had to make and weren't sure about ourselves.  We have had lots of comments about the high standard of the work and the keeping of the style of the house.

We were on a pretty tight budget and Chris kept us informed on where we were at throughout the project.  We came in well under on one part of the build and appreciated Chris's honesty on this.  An absolute pleasure to work with the team and have already recommended them to other people."

"Delivered on time, on budget and to expectation"

"In April 2012 we took our house plan to Chris and agreed a budget and final drawings.  He started the build on 7 May 2012, promising it would be ready for us to move in on 7 November.

All through the build of our home Chris and his team became part of our vision and delivered on every aspect of how we designed our home.  Our one regret is that we did not engage Chris from the very outset as his eye for detail and concept is the best we have encountered.

Chris kept us informed on progress and plans and offered great advice when we were uncertain or wanted a change."
