My son and daughter-in-law who had their home built by Construction One recommended Scott to me. Scott’s team and his sub-contractors undertook the project in a very professional and reliable way. The finishing on my house is superb and I believe this is an indication of Scott’s commitment to his clients to produce a home to be proud of. I appreciated his aesthetic eye for detail and consideration for cost saving where possible. His tenacity to find the right product to finish my courtyard landscaping was valued. My house was completed earlier than the time frame given despite bad weather at the commencement of the project. I was concerned about building a new home on my own but felt fully supported by Scott and his team. The process was enjoyable! I have no hesitation in recommending Construction One for any building project.
I have known Scott Crook for a number of years through my architectural practice in Auckland. Scott has carried out construction work on residential contracts for me, some of which involved complex alterations to the existing buildings.
I have been impressed by his thoroughness in costing a job, and his subsequent attention to detail when carrying out this work. He is a good manager of staff and is able to exact the same high standards from his employees. Scott’s ability to maintain a good relationship with his sub-contractors is an asset to any job and one which has been appreciated by myself and my clients.
Scott and his team of exceptional sub-contractors won the contract because Scott impressed us with his ability to easily communicate ideas or concerns, his pricing was realistic and he displayed total professionalism and enthusiasm towards the project. As the building progressed it became extremely obvious that Scott is brilliant at project management – a necessary skill to complete the project on time and on budget. His eye for detail is perhaps confused with being pedantic but he identified a problem with the kitchen cabinetry (we arranged the kitchen exclusive to his contract) at the time of installation which could have proved costly to us to remedy but instead was resolved with little fuss or delays.
We were told that building a house is a difficult and stressful experience and yet we can report feeling the complete opposite as the entire process was fun and incredibly easy – and this is a tribute to Scott.
We highly recommend Scott – Construction One – to anyone looking to build their dream home.
We have been associated with Scott for the past 10 years and during that time Scott has worked on various projects building and Project management.
As a Body Corporate responsible to some 80 owners we look firstly for professionalism, reliability and the completion on time with a cost effective result.
Whatever we put in front of Scott from reroofing a 4 storey building to the recladding and management of any job big or small I was able to relax with confidence once the brief has been given to him.
Scott’s unruffled personality enabled completion of these projects on time and on budget despite having some very difficult owners and situations to contend with, he has the ability to ‘think on his feet’ and make decisions. People of Scott’s calibre do not come along very often.
We were absolutely delighted with what Scott managed to achieve for us. It has been throughout a pleasure to work with him. Effective time management of the renovation project was crucial to us as we had to move out to enable it to proceed. Scott estimated three months for completion and achieved that deadline. Subcontractors selected by Scott produced work to the highest standards. We were impressed with the standards Scott set for himself and others throughout. His quality control and project management skills are a huge asset.
We appreciated Scott’s eye to costs. He was able to make product recommendations to us, providing cost/quality comparisons which were exceedingly helpful to us in our decision making. Scott proved a great people-manager on-site with employees, subcontractors and suppliers. He was sensitive to the needs of home-owners on neighbouring properties.
Our experience overall is that we could not have retained a better builder/project manager than we had in Scott. He was an absolute pleasure to work with.
I have known Scott for four years in which time I have worked with him on an extensive Bungalow alteration and a renovation of a 1970’s Architect designed home for a demanding client. This type of work requires experience and forward thinking which Scott clearly showed on these projects.
Scott showed excellent project management skills not only with onsite management, including organisation of sub trades but clear and accurate administration skills. Both clients were delighted as the projects were completed on time and on budget.
I have been involved in major building work as a main contractor for the last 50 years so I am well qualified to judge a good operator when I see one and I have no hesitation in including Scott in that category. He is a very pleasant and honest person to deal with
and is very well organised. Many of the subcontractors commented favourably on his integrity, communication skills and his full understanding of the construction process.
I would have no hesitation in working with Scott again and I highly recommend him to anyone else who desires a trouble-free, high-quality building.
