During alterations and extensions on our home in Redwood Valley, we were fortunate to have Gardiner Building Contractors do the job. This included all sub- contractors needed to complete the work. There was an extremely high standard of finish in all areas making our Home feel new again. The team was hard working, polite, and there was minimal disruption throughout the project which we appreciated. We both found Darryl very approachable and the entire team extremely professional. We are proud to recommend Darryl and his team to others and to show off the Outstanding job they have done to our home.

I have known Darryl in a business sense for the last 11 year after joining PlaceMakers Nelson as an Account Manager which also coincided with Darryl going into business for himself. He had been a highly succesful foreman for a large and well-respected building company where he was involved in some high profile projects. Darryl’s honesty and integrity have always played an integral part of his business and is one of the key factors why he has such a good reputation in the Nelson region and gets a lot of repeat and referral work. I would have no hesitation in recommending Darryl and his team to potential clients looking to build as I have witnessed a very high standard of workmanship, effective management and planning skills all leading to an excellent end result.

Our relationship with Gardiner Building Contractors dates back to 2008 when they completed extensive additions and renovations to our dwelling in Hill St. under the direction of our architect Andrew Irving. Since then they have also built an outdoor living area incorporating fire and barbeque and more recently a swimming pool redevelopment. We find Daryl and his team to be very approachable, professional and well organised in their work who get the job done with minimal hassle. Their experience and attention to detail ensures a high standard of workmanship. We intend to continue to employ them on further projects in the future.

I have worked with Darryl on several jobs over the years. One of which he was the foreman on a very large project that we designed on 17 Bisley Avenue, Nelson. It was a complicated, highly detailed house and completed to a very high standard. This house won the Master Builders Supreme House of the Year Award that year. A very tight timeframe was established at the beginning of the project and despite large variations being added to the contract the original deadlines were met. In my opinion Darryl’s leadership skills, goal setting, building skills and determination were outstanding and a major factor in the success of the project. The project required a large number of builders and sub contractors to be on the site. Darryl created a very united and happy team. We are always keen to have Darryl as foreman on any of our projects. He is very hardworking, sets very high standards for his team, communicates well with consultants and sub contractors and even has a sense of humour.
I would like to thank Lance, Daryl and their team for making our new house build a hassle-free process. They were all a pleasure to have onsite and nothing was ever a problem for them. Lance ran an efficient team and always had great communication.
Our house has been built exactly how we wanted it. I was not the easiest client as when the builders had finished off our inbuilt fireplace, I changed my mind and decided I wanted a free-standing fireplace. This was not a problem for the building team and they acted on it straight away and made the changes I wanted.
The builders were all extremely knowledgeable and had a great eye for detail and worked to a high standard. I often asked them for advice on things I was not sure of.
I was very impressed by how tidy they were. The site was tidied at the end of every day and a big tidy at the end of every week.
I would highly recommend Gardiner Building contractors to anyone who had a new build or needed alterations done. We would be happy to use their services again.
