I cannot fault any of the contractors (Interlink and Cook Brothers) in any way. We have been impressed with all aspects of the build, and at the end of this process, we have a wonderful classroom block ready for term 3.
It has been a pleasure to have worked with everyone involved in this project. The excitement has been high throughout the process of watching the site develop, the arrival of the modules to the completion of the project.

To the team currently building the new Old Boys Cricket Club in Elmwood Park Christchurch, thank you! I walk past this construction site every day, and to date, you continue to impress me with how clean and tidy it is.
In a world where many people like to complain, and pats on the back are rarely heard, you need to know many locals have been singing your praises. The 5 minutes at the end of the day to regularly sweep the paths and keep the site tidy has not gone unnoticed.
Well done to the Site Foreman and team.

Upper Village Holdings engaged Cook Brothers Construction (CBC) in a contractor lead Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) procurement model in mid-July 2019. At this point the Architect was the only design consultant engaged and the project was only at conceptual design phase. Resource Consent had not yet been applied for.
The team at Cook Brothers recommended and sourced fee proposals for the remainder of the design consultants, then lead fortnightly Design Control Group meetings to achieve the Building Consent while assisting the planners with the Resource Consent.
They also professionally managed the application for a Licence to Occupy, Traffic Management Plan, Site Specific Construction Management Plan and Site Specific Environmental Management Plan, meaning we didn’t need to engage external consultants.
The Cook Brothers team worked quickly and methodically with excellent communication throughout the process. Their speed and engagement around pre-construction meant the BC1 was turned around in just over a month.
Cook Brothers provided an initial budget estimate off the conceptual plans, then regularly updated the budget as the design evolved. They maintained their excellent communication and transparency throughout this process allowing the project to progress quickly.
Overall the experience working with CBC to date has been great. We were extremely happy with the way they drove the design team to meet deadlines, while keeping the project to budget. We would not hesitate to recommend Cook Brothers Construction to others seeking a transparent and effective development partner.

Cook Brothers Construction have performed excellently on the York Place project. I have been involved in many contracts in my over 40 years’ experience in civil engineering and building projects and I certainly rank Cook Brother's amongst the best Contractors I have dealt with.
