Cardrona Alpine Resort & Cook Brothers have been working together since 2016 on various projects within our base buildings revamp, and Project Alchemy.

Our site is never an easy place to operate & construct, however, the team at Cook Brothers have taken the challenges of our alpine environment & operating windows in their stride. Always aiming to please, their staff are engaging, co-operative & have embraced our company values & sustainability ethos with enthusiasm.

Our new ticket office is something the entire team can be proud of and we look forward to future projects with Cook Brothers Construction.

We have just completed a new design and build in Cromwell with Cook Brothers Construction. The project from start to finish has to be our smoothest build to date. After dealing with a number of construction companies on multiple jobs, Cook Brothers would rate as one of the best,

  • Professional,
  • Easy to deal with,
  • Time conscience,
  • Market place price competitive,
  • Responsive
  • Variation honest

I have no problem recommending the team at Cook Brothers.

McCoy Wixon Architects

McCoy Wixon Architects has worked closely with Cook Brothers Construction on various building projects over the past 6 years. Of particular note are two new-build Kindergarten projects for Dunedin Kindergarten Association. These were based around a design and build process where McCoy Wixon Architects provided design and documentation services to Cook Brothers Construction. McCoy Wixon and Cook Brothers were involved in the bid process for both of these projects. 

We found the Cook Brothers team to be diligent and professional at all times. Both the projects were delivered in a professional and timely manner. The Cook Brothers team maintained a strong working relationship with all consultants throughout the projects, generating a robust team structure which ensured excellent finished products for the client. 

We would certainly have no hesitation in working together with Cook Brothers again in the future if the opportunity arose.

Oakley Gray Architects

Oakley Gray Architects worked with Cook Brothers in a design-build joint venture on the new Medical Centre and Resthome for West Otago Health in Tapanui, having successfully won a limited competition. The project was carried out from 2012-2014. 

There was an excellent working relationship between the architect, contractor and the client throughout the project. The community had been fundraising for many years prior to construction, and so a keen awareness of budget constraints was paramount. Value engineering was carried out at key milestones, and Cook Brothers were very proactive in suggestions around saving money. Their project management was good, and the construction quality was excellent. 

We found Cook Brothers very good to work with and would recommend them to others.

Origin Consultants Ltd

We have recently worked with Cook Brothers Construction on a $2.6million refurbishment of The Gate Restaurant/Bar and Cafe/Info Centre in Cromwell and a $100,000 commercial fit out for Ocula Optometrists in Queenstown. For both projects, CBC were engaged in Early Contract Involvement. For The Gate, they competitively tendered for rates and margins. 

Having CBC involved at an early stage for these projects, allowed them to provide the design team with comments on the construction, sequencing/programming, and line up subcontractors to quote as both projects had tight timeframes. During the early design meetings, CBC were able to give input on comparative costs for design elements to present to the client. 

Input was received from the Regional and Divisional Managers for The Gate project prior to site commencement. This was beneficial in building a relationship with the team and opening lines of communication. For Ocula the Project Manager was also involved from the start. We believe this is beneficial and adds another valuable layer of expertise for both large and small projects. 

We would recommend that having CBC on board for Early Contract Involvement is beneficial to a positive project and developing a good working relationship.
