Upper Village

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.

It is with pleasure that I can put forward this recommendation for Cook Brothers Construction, whom I have worked with on several projects in the region over the years. As a result I can endorse their workmanship, integrity and commitment.

What you can expect from Cook Brothers is a stream lined, honest approach that is founded on open communication. Their strong industry knowledge and construction experience helps to stream line construction projects and they are a company that can be relied on from the start of the project until the end.

Should any issues be encountered along the way Cook Brothers were always proactive in assisting to find solutions to keep the project on track. Their commitment to quality and H&S is a high priority and they understand the importance of meeting program.

I would not hesitate to recommend Cook brothers Construction to others and will involve them in future projects when the opportunities arise.

Terrace School

Cook Brothers have been the build team behind The Terrace School’s new administration block, purpose built Technology Centre and staff car park.Their clear communication, positivity in the face of adversity such as COVID19, the integration of old buildings and the unexpected challenges these bring, and attention to detail have ensured that we have had a successful partnership in this build. The Cook Brothers team have been professional and timely, ready and willing to answer any questions along the way and collaborate on the integration with other school projects. This has been key in working towards the wider picture of our school improvements. We are excited to be using our bright, modern and welcoming buildings. Thanks to Craig, Hamish and their team. A job well done.

Mount Aspiring College

We have just completed 3 projects here on campus 2 small projects and one large. All of the projects were supervised by Simon Glass of Cook Brothers. In my time here I have contracted 18 new teaching spaces and the work done by this contractor has been of the highest standard. Completion has been on time and under budget plus I asked them to do extra work that could have stretched the completion date. I am still receiving calls from the build team manager of our technology upgrade to ask if I am happy and how the facility is running. I would recommend them as a company that will satisfy your requirements however small or large.

Vernon Drive

A letter of appreciation to Cook Brothers Construction on completion of the 1420m2 of buildings at 8 Vernon Drive Lincoln.
This was the fourth block of business premises we have built to lease in Lincoln and our first with Cook Brothers. We are delighted with their pricing, programming, quality and site management. It included two significant extras at our request and all completed within the original timeframe. 

Thoroughly recommended.
