"After a quick 7 month build Cristina and I took possession of our fantastic new home last week and already we are feeling the benefits of the energy efficient design. The house is so comfortable and warm as the early onset of winter arrives with a chilly minus 5 degrees outside at night.
The evolution team were fantastic, from the concept and consent procedure right through to the high quality workmanship of all the tradesman working on the build. The evolution team did not disappoint us."
"We were pleased to be able to appoint Rilean Construction to build our house in Arrowtown as we knew of their first class reputation, and we had heard glowing reports about the standard of their work and the professionalism of their approach to projects they undertake. From the beginning the skills of their specialized team, their attention to detail, their approachability and their commitment to completing the project on time were obvious." "We were fortunate, as overseas clients, that our"
"The evolution team made the whole building process very straightforward.
They assisted us with a few design changes we wanted to make, and gave good advice on how well those changes would fit into the es2 design.
Construction went very smoothly, and remarkably quickly. Nick and Tom on site were fantastic, always willing to answer questions we had, and they took great pride in their work.
As a result of this the overall quality of the build was of"
"Rilean were engaged on a charge up basis and consistently delivered our monthly project reports on time and in enough detail that we were comfortable with our position at every stage of the build. I was happy that they were constantly working on our behalf to secure the best products at the best prices and on the odd occasion when they were let down by their suppliers or subcontractors, were quick to react in our favour. The oversight provided by Gary Dent also gave us great comfort and helped to achieve an improved product by bringing his years of experience to several critical stages of the process. I can highly recommend Rilean Construction to any prospective building partner."
"We have been involved with Rilean Construction since 1999 on numerous projects throughout the Wakatipu Basin. The nature and complexity of these projects has been quite diverse.
Rilean have at all times, acted in a professional manner and executed these projects timely and efficiently.
Quality Control is fundamental in their approach to projects. Whenever any difficulties or problems have been encountered, the resolution process has been based on open and frank dialogue with resultant outcomes more than satisfactory to all parties. Careful planning and programming of projects has lead to effective delivery.
We have no hesitation in recommending Rilean Construction for building and construction projects."
"They are good to work with, and all issues can be discussed in an open and logical fashion in accordance to good industry standard. I have worked with Rilean Construction Ltd for a number of years. Rilean have built a number of buildings my company has designed, including a number of high end houses, town houses and multi-million dollar commercial buildings. These jobs have generally all been designed, documented and overseen by myself in my capacity as engineer to contract. These being under either NZIA or NZS 3910 Standard Conditions of Contract. In all cases Rilean have performed on time and to a high quality of work. Their standard of presentation for any tenders has always been high and very well presented so that the decisions can be made and all is clear. I recommend, without reservation, Rilean Construction Ltd for any building work."
"We have nothing but praise for the way and manner in which Rilean Construction built our house on Queenstown Hill. They communicated readily on all major issues and points of importance. They always struck out for the highest standards and the finished product is impeccable. They were at all times friendly, approachable and helpful and thoroughly versed and competent in all building issues. They mastered what turned out to be a very difficult site and the manner in which they communicated with local engineers, architects, council etc. took a huge weight off our shoulders whilst being overseas clients based in Dubai.
We appreciated the site manager Craig Clark’s attention to detail and to quality and his superlative communication skills when all correspondence was necessarily by email and to Mick Moffatt’s ongoing commitment and dedication enabling the project to be completed successfully.
From our experience we would thoroughly recommend Rilean Construction…they are a professional team and a pleasure to deal with."
"They have a great ability to communicate so we felt quite in tune with everything that was going on".
New home construction can be a trying time for anybody and Jon and Sue Newson were well aware of this before they begin construction on their Wakatipu home.
Having looked around the building sector in the region they decided to base their choice on the words of a trusted friend.
"We were referred to Rilean and I have to say that over the year we worked together they exceeded our expectations", says Jon.
As well as the obvious professionalism of the workforce and the measured approach to every aspect of the project, Jon was equally impressed by the attitude of the people behind the company.
"It was all down to personality. You felt they were honest, and they were!" he adds.
Sometimes the world of building, its innovations and the dovetailing of tasks to make a project run smoothly can look complex even to the experienced eye, but for Jon and Sue, the whole thing was made easy to follow."
"We never had any problems.”
With a long career in civil projects Jim Fulton’s a man who knows his way around construction and contracting.
His most recent involvement with Rilean comes through his position at the head of a trust board charged with managing sensitive redevelopment of some of Queenstown’s principle building heritage.
“Because we’re a charitable trust we had to put the work out to tender and Rilean submitted a bid along with other interested parties.
“They won because"
"Rilean were recommended to us by a project manager but they won the contract on competitive quoting.
McCoy and Wixon’s architectural reputation means their work takes them a long way from their Dunedin base, so they know from long experience how crucial it is to have exactly the right construction company on site.
Their large projects in the Wakatipu Basin include the flagship Arrowtown School, and ongoing developments on the campus.
“We had a very good relationship and found Rilean very professional in their approach.
“Also, they were very easy to deal with and took a pro-active approach to working as part of a team through fortnightly meetings on site,” he adds.
With a three-hour road journey between Dunedin and Arrowtown it was imperative the two companies were able to exchange news and developments across the South Island.
“It was no problem as Rilean are up with all the latest communication technology which is very important. And because we’ve remained on very good terms throughout our relationships, it’s been easy for both parties to share information and understand exactly what’s required at all times.”"
