Southern Engineering Solutions

- Warren Rice (video testimonial)

The process of our project on Waterloo road has just been absolutely seamless. Both myself and my wife Chantelle are very grateful to Grace, Brad and their team. We’ve had no headaches and we’re very pleased with the finishing. Even with the a few changes along the way, Brad makes it happen. They’re the people we want to work with, and we’d strongly recommend them!

Windscreens Direct (Commercial Project)

- Dean Holmes (Director)

“I would have no hesitation in recommending BG Cooke Construction to undertake another building development for me. I purchased land on 24 Princess St, Christchurch a few years ago & we were recommend BG Cooke construction to undertake the building provided we were living in Hamilton & knowing the process & requirements of the council. Not having dealt with Cooke Construction before, I was a little nervous to say the least but I have to say, I was put to ease early in the project and was impressed by the level of service.”

Dunlea Project (Dairy Shed)

- Elesha Dunlea

“After the 2016 Earthquake in Kaikoura, we lost our Rotary dairy shed so as you can imagine this was a stressful time for us. We were lucky enough to have Brad and his team at BG Cooke construction build a new 44 bail rotary dairy shed for us in a pressured amount of time. Brad and his team love working, building and placing concrete and this is evident in the high quality finished product. Brad liaise with us to ensure the shed was built exactly how we wanted, even making last-minute changes to ensure the building met our requirements. We would highly recommend the team at BG Cooke construction especially for high-intensity building projects.”

Portacom Units

- Harvey Tan

“When awarded the contract to Brad to construct infrastructures for my 2 units Homestay Bungalows and when completion, I noticed that there is no better contractor performing and ensuring construction runs smoothly and completed on schedule. Brad is a great young leader having good co-ordination working with his team. His abilities to convince every day, I have trust in him that the work being done will always be in good hands. Works will be completed according to what I expected of him. I would recommend him to anyone in any future contracts. I assure that he will definitely complete the works to their satisfaction and on schedule.”

LB Dairies (Dairy Shed)

- Catherine and Rod Lamb LB Dairies Ltd

“Rod and myself are dairy farmers in the Kaikoura area. Our cowshed was badly affected in the Kaikoura earthquake of November 2016. After 2 years of battling with the insurance company, Brad and Grace become a big part in enabling us to move forward and get our cowshed fixed. They worked directly with the insurance company to come up with a realistic price to get the cowshed fixed. This took a huge amount of stress off us. 

We found Brad and Grace to be a very driven, hard-working couple. They were very professional, from the pricing of the job, signing contracts, health and safety etc. These were all done to the highest standard. 

We were both really impressed with the organisation prior to construction. Supplies arrived and tilt panels were made off-site before construction began so there were no delays.  Matt and his team consistently worked on our cowshed. They arrived at dawn and left at dusk working very hard throughout the day. Brad was onsite daily at the beginning and then regularly working and monitoring progress throughout the construction. We found Brad, Matt and the rest of the team very time efficient, super friendly, respectful, approachable and very keen to get the job completed on time and within budget.  A substantial amount of concreting needed to be done. The cowshed yards, water tank stands, parts of the cowshed races and effluent system needed to be replaced. Endless hours went into prepping these sites. Concrete was laid and workmanship was done to a very high standard. Subcontractors were brought in for drainage, plumbing, electrical, cowshed plant repairs and painting. This was well organised and streamlined to when they were needed so there were no hold-ups to get the job completed. 

We were very happy with the completion of the cowshed repairs. The overall workmanship was excellent. The overall cost came in below budget and was finished approximately 3 weeks early. We would highly recommend BG Cooke Construction.”
