The Brief

The owners wanted a well-crafted, durable home that would stand up to Mount Maunganui’s sometimes harsh coastal conditions and their brief to the architect was clear -“quality of finish is paramount”. With a spectacular ocean view and the prospect of family and friends piling in, they wanted to create a haven with beautiful indoor/ outdoor flow throughout and plenty of cosy areas to relax in.

The Project

Dave’s passion for detail and our insistence on clear lines of regular communication meant this project was a pleasure to work on in every way. Dave gave it his all, tweaking every tiny detail to perfection. Fortnightly meetings with the owners and their architect kept everyone in the loop, solved problems as they appeared and improved progress. The result was a multi award-winning, superbly crafted contemporary home that exceeded the client’s expectations and will stand the test of time.

Note: Aware of our award winning reputation, the owners did their research, keeping a portfolio of our building projects for many years before choosing to work with us.


"David and Carolynne Shaw impressed us from the day they presented their concise, clear proposal to do our build. Their quiet confidence in their ability to carry out what was required within the parameters set out, enabled us to appoint them without hesitation.

As promised, the job proceeded in an orderly fashion, within quoted costs and on time. Site meetings were held fortnightly with builder and architect to clarify any issues and to sort out any potential problems. The end result is a home we are proud to own, with outstanding workmanship in every respect.

Plus, David and Carolynne show a continued interest in their work, which we welcome. We are pleased to recommend them to any client seeking a forward-focussed, totally prepared, quality builder.”
