TESTIMONIALS

As a result of the Feb 2011 earthquake in Christchurch our 1925 character home overlooking the estuary on Mt Pleasant was destroyed. Loving the site and the character feel of the original house, we wished to rebuild the home in a similar style. We found a new home on Kennedys Bush Rd that was built in the character style we wanted and after some research found the home was built by Miles Construction.

From the very first meeting with Simon, we had a feeling we’d found the right connection. Miles Construction took us on board and worked with us, not only through the design and build process but also through all the left field complications that emerged along the way. They helped us work through our Insurance Settlement, moving a major sewer line and installing a stormwater retention system, all of which were outside the scope of the standard build and without who’s help we would have struggled to complete the project.

I am pleased to say that the team at Miles Construction have rebuilt our earthquake devastated home in a manner and standard that has exceeded our expectations. We are very grateful and highly recommend Miles Construction to build your new home.

Finally, I would like to say a special thanks to the team Simon, Roger, Michael, Glenn, Giselle and Jenni and to all the tradesmen and sub contractors who helped realise our dream.

Dealing with Simon and the team at Miles Construction made our home building journey simple.

Initially my wife and I had become fed up with being hounded from show home staff, being told we need to compromise to plans, even being encouraged to deal with 2nd tier lenders. We had decided against building as it all felt too hard and demanding.

Miles Constructions process was a welcome change in industry philosophy. Their ability to pull together a land and house package in the subdivision we desired, with bespoke plans (including changes), inside of budget and time frame. “Not a problem”. “Of course we can do that”. “Let us know when you are ready”. “Take your time, think about it over the weekend and give us a call next week”. Combine this with their full transparency process, which demonstrates honesty and trust, helps knowing your money is being well invested.

We are now past our 90 day inspection, love our home and neighbourhood. I recommend Miles, I will use Miles again.

Thanks

We are so pleased that we chose Miles Construction to build our family home.  Led by Alastair Miles, this company totally understands how to build homes extremely well and to budget. At our initial meeting with Alastair, Simon, Roger and Matt they all understood what we wanted to build and their expertise in design and building is excellent. Simon, Roger and Matt communicated with us very closely through the whole building process and when changes were needed they were not a problem and easily done. The whole building process was seamless and was not stressful. The builder and his team were amazing and our house was finished on time.

I would highly recommend Miles Construction to anyone who wishes to build – thank you very much Alastair and your team – we love our new home!!

“Building with Miles Construction has been an absolute pleasure for us. From the design stage through to the build completion, the team at Miles have made it a seamless exercise for us, giving us full support through all of the decisions, and providing ongoing communication to keep us well informed of progress. The finish on the build is to an incredibly high standard and the total build time has blown us all away. We wouldn’t hesitate to highly recommend the team at Miles for anyone that is considering a high quality build in the future. Thanks to the entire team.”

Kind regards

Miles Construction was responsible for our rebuild after the February 22nd earthquake. They had been selected by our insurance company to do the second quantity survey and it seemed logical to us to select them for the build also. Miles Construction had a good reputation and Alistair Miles was president of the Masters Builders association which was also reassuring.

We found the build process was well managed despite inevitable challenges that come from hill sites and some of the guidelines imposed on rebuilds by the Insurance Company. By appreciating that Miles Construction and their sub-contractors were also juggling other builds, meant we did not feel anxious at those times when no one was onsite because we trusted their judgement and knew they were committed to finishing the house properly.

We are delighted with the outcome. With the help, advice and experience of the team, we were also able to make some last minute changes to details when we realised that some of our choices were not as good as we had first imagined. This especially was the highlight for us in the process because we had never built before.

The attention to fixing all the little details and touch-ups once we were in has been very easy and well managed

“The completed architecturally designed house only took eight months to build!
Their subbies were fantastic, all their work was perfect and up to my high standard, and to get the code of compliance first go was great- a week after completion unheard of, thanks again.”

We are delighted with our new home. The Miles team followed our brief and delivered everything we wanted, exactly as portrayed in the initial 3D designs. We were impressed with the quality and craftsmanship of the build, they took great pride in their work. After considering other builders, we were happy we received the best value for money from Miles

I cannot praise Miles Construction and their staff highly enough for the work undertaken on my new house.
From the day that work commenced everything proceeded smoothly and uninterrupted, and exemplary workmanship was shown by all concerned. My thanks to the Builder, the Subcontractors and all those involved who made my new house the perfect place to live.
My grateful thanks to Miles Construction. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone who is wanting to build a high quality house/
