”All in all, we are delighted with the house that we have had built by him and his team and would highly recommend him to others.Tim and Karen Jones, Home Owners
My wife Karen and I have been delighted with the construction of our house by Marcus Jones of Marcus Jones Builders Limited and his team.
We chose Marcus out of a group of builders that tendered for the project. He said at the outset that it was of the upmost importance to him that we were happy with the build. His approach to the project and the willingness to discuss matters with us as well as his promise and philosophy of attention to detail were key factors in our choosing him out of the other tenderers.
Marcus and his team adhered to his principles all the way through the build programme. He communicated well with us, either by meetings on site, telephone calls or emails. He communicated from time to time as was necessary with our architect during the build process. Nothing was too much trouble to him and that was echoed by the members of his subcontractor team as well.
His attention to detail has been superb. We have been very happy with the quality of the build. This house has won him a gold star from the Master Builders in the 2015 House of the Year competition for the Auckland and Northland area. It is entered into the National competition as well.
We must also comment on the various subcontractors he used who were excellent as well. They were all willing to discuss issues with us and work with us around issues and problems of which there were not too many.
The project ran very well to time. We did not make significant demands on Marcus in terms of a completion date, but he achieved those and exceeded them in some cases. The project ran within the budget and within his tender price. He always communicated where there were going to be some adjustments in price, whether under or overs. Many of the over costs were variations that we chose to add into the build during the course of the project.
All in all, we are delighted with the house that we have had built by him and his team and would highly recommend him to others.
Marcus Jones Builders were one of three builders selected by the owners to provide a tender for the project and Marcus won the tender based on both price and non priced attributes.
Marcus has worked through the construction process with his team of carpenters, sub contractors and local suppliers. He managed the project alongside the owners and an Auckland based quantity surveyor for the monthly payments. I complement him and the owners on the professional way in which the contract was managed and the project was completed without any problems or stressful issues for the owners.
The construction for this home was required to be completed to a high standard and the success of Marcus Jones Builders work is reflected in the project achieving a Master Builders Gold award.
Marcus is to be congratulated in the very successful outcome achieved in this project, he remains a close friend of the owners and I have confirmed to him that the design idea and the required quality of the finishing have both been achieved.
