Dave was extremely professional and informative

We approached Dave Madden to carry out a renovation of our house in Havelock North. We were on an extremely tight timeline as we were expecting another child.

Dave was extremely professional and informative, his input was priceless, we had never undertaken a project of this scale and we had a tight budget, Dave's team completed the project on time and within budget.

The project included renovation of two lounges, kitchen, dining room, deck, carport and laundry. This renovation was designed by Clarkson Architects Havelock North.

We utilised all of Dave's sub contractors and he managed them for our project, the company's that Dave works with deliver the same high quality workmanship.

I would have no hesitation referring Dave and his team at Madden Construction for any building works in the future.

They quickly understood our requirements

We engaged Madden Construction in January 2012 to undertake an extensive renovation at our residence in Omarunui Road, including extensions to the house, new kitchen, new bathrooms, new entranceway, removing walls/fireplaces and remodelling living areas, new decking and loggia, changing water supply systems from bore to a rainwater tank system and earthworks for a rerouted driveway.

Madden Construction were recommended to us and we included them in our tender process. After considering all the tenders, we chose Madden Construction because they quickly understood our requirements and were willing to work with us to achieve the best possible value for us as clients. We found them to be positive, professional and very courteous. We related well to Dave and Pete and trusted them to achieve the outcomes we desired.

Since we were planning to live in the house during the renovation it was important to have a good working relationship and Madden were very accommodating in managing the project around the family and providing advice as required.

Madden also have an excellent team of contractors, all who have been very prompt, professional and pleasant to deal with. Peter Barbara, who was our builder, did a superb job of project management, proactively sorting out any issues.

In spite of adverse weather conditions the project has been completed with minimal delay and within budget. Furthermore we are very impressed with the workmanship and have found Madden and their subcontractors a pleasure to deal with.

This was out third major house renovation and easily the best experience! We always felt confident in the expertise of the Madden Construction team throughout the renovation.

We would highly recommend Madden Construction to anyone undertaking a building project and we wish them all the very best for the future.

Total Satisfaction

We asked Madden Construction to take a look at re-modelling our home; changing our small two bedroom one bathroom Californian bungalow into a three bedroom, two bathroom home with an open plan living area.

We sat down and told David what we wanted. He was very receptive to our needs and wants, listening carefully, and then giving us some very practical design advice in return.

We felt confident from the outset when deciding to offer Madden Construction the job. From the initial stages of the project to completion we regularly visited the site to see the team, and enjoy witnessing the progress. We were thrilled with the work rate and quality of workmanship.

Nearly one year on, and we are still ecstatic with the renovations. Nothing we suggested was a problem, and David came up and revisited us to assure total satisfaction.

We would without hesitation recommend Madden Construction to anyone looking to build.
