Here’s what our clients have to say
Armstrong Downes Commercial were the main contractors on the Te Puna Rangahau Learning Centre at the National Police College. Our project involved transforming the old bar and café with exterior courtyard into a new state of the art learning centre with a new café. The ADC team did a fantastic job both with their on-site management and back of house support.
Keeping on top of the financials is critical to NZP and ADC were instrumental in managing this really well throughout the project. It was great to know I had easy access to Armstrong Downes Commercial’s Directors when needed. I consider Armstrong Downes Commercial to be one of the better contractors I have worked with and look forward to working with them again in the future.
The construction will increase the retail floor space from 670 sqm to 2282sqm and will provide an improved offer, superior service, competitive prices and a range our customers should expect from a New World store.
The demand for modern, high-tech, small offices in Wellington is high, due to the large number of business people who may live in the likes of the Wairarapa or Kapiti, but who need a base in Wellington. There is nothing like it in Wellington and once we get up and running we will be looking at doing the same in Auckland.
Working on the structural strengthening of an older Tudor style building for the Embassy was made even easier by Armstrong Downes getting behind the project once extensive decay was found. Armstrong Downes was easy to work with and became an essential part of the team to rebuild and reinstate the building. The company took care to provide a dwelling with all the expected current building comforts, whilst completely retaining the original Tudor style.
Armstrong Downes Commercial were engaged to construct an extension to our existing Care Home as well as extensive internal refurbishment work. The site management team were professional and courteous at all times showing respect for our staff and residents who work and live within the building throughout the construction period. We were impressed with the on-site solutions offered by the team when issues needed to be resolved to avoid programme delays. We are pleased with the completed development allowing our residents to enjoy the new surroundings.
I have dealt with Simon and Tony on a few projects now and they have always performed really well on both cost and timeframe. It was cold, wet winter when we built this and they got stuck in, got the job done and we opened up a new market – always good contractors to work with.
Armstrong Downs were successful in tendering for the Construction of Seaview Marina’s 2000m² Sea Centre building. From the first meetings with Tony Doile and Simon Taylor, we knew the build was going to be a successful one.
Over the construction period, the team from Armstrong Downes showed their professionalism, and the building went up without any major issues. Weekly site meetings provided Seaview staff and board members with progress reports, and the whole experience proved an enjoyable one.
With the need to keep the marina operational during construction, this project took a lot of planning by both parties. Armstrong Downes were able to work around our operation without losing any time on the build, and we were able to run our hardstand without losing business.
The resulting facility is a credit to the company’s construction abilities. The building is first class, and over the 18 months it has been functioning it has proved to be fit for purpose. If Seaview Marina were considering any further building projects, we would be encouraging Armstrong Downes to tender.
Purser Contracting Ltd has sub-contracted to Armstrong Downes on a variety of projects, namely: Pak’n’Save Lower Hutt and Paraparaumu, Harvey Norman Lower Hutt, Boulcott Clinic and Seaview Marina.
Our current collaborations are at Fergusson Intermediate and Hutt Park Indoor Sports Centre.
We have enjoyed immensely the opportunity to work on these high profile and tightly organised job sites with Simon and Tony, the enthusiastic new owners, and Leighton, Graham, Doug, Perry, Grant and all the office staff.
Their team is a credit to the company as a whole, as it pursues and attains consistently high standards of workmanship, choreographing the diverse elements of complex projects to meet tight deadlines.
No problem is insurmountable – to the extent that they were our choice when we came to construct our long-awaited new offices at 161 SH 58.
If you want a quality project to be completed on time, I would have no hesitation in recommending to you the services of Armstrong Downes.
Armstrong Downes has excellent personnel who maintain a strong relationship with me, ensuring that projects meet time, quality and cost requirements.
As Commercial Representative for Firth Industries, I have been fortunate to have had Armstrong Downes as a customer for over 15 years.
During this time I have seen them grow into a successful and well respected Commercial Construction company in Wellington, and have been involved in some extremely exciting projects along the way. As a Company they are extremely professional, yet at the same time incredibly easy to deal with. Could not think of a better group of people to deal with!!
I have worked with Armstrong Downes from their first year in business, with a significant amount of work over recent years at Chilton Saint James School, both with selected tendered work and subsequently, on a negotiated “open book” basis.
The level of professionalism and dedication that you bought to the project certainly made my life easier.
I have to say that it has been a real pleasure working with you, the process has worked seamlessly. I applaud the way you operate. The communication between you and your representatives, and the Upper Hutt police has been world class.
