I have been asked to provide this testimonial by Greg. Cramond. I can confirm that l have no financial or family connections with the company or any shareholder of the company other than any outstanding provisions of our building contract.
My Wife & l employed W. Hamilton Building Ltd. late last year to build our new home (in Maori Hill). This home is now finished and we are living in it.
Virtually all of our contact, negotiations and administration of the project have been with Greg Cramond. Greg was working on site for a considerable part of the project. We were living out of town during the project and commuting every 2 weeks or so to attend site meetings etc.
We cannot speak highly enough of our dealings with them. At all times Greg has been most helpful, has programmed and managed the sub-contractors and generally, co-operated with us to resolve all issues that arise during such a project. Furthermore Greg has ensured that the workmanship quality was excellent.
Our house was completed virtually on the contract's completion date.
In addition, Greg has been fun to work with.
I would highly recommend this company to anyone.
l would be happy to answer any telephone enquiries regarding this testimonial.

Our residence was designed by Parker Warburton Architects and constructed by W Hamilton Building.
The outcome is a quality built home which encompasses the sites attributes- such as the
topography, orientation to the sun and views.
The ’build’ was competently executed by the Hamilton team who were skilled at interpreting the architect’s plans and foreseeing construction issues and improvements ahead of the construction programme.
The capable construction team took care and pride with the carpentry work will managing subcontractors to achieve good quality outcomes. They also took care and with the detail finishing work.
As client the relationship was very professional and the construction outcome exceeded expectations.

We worked with Bill and his team for over a year in planning and delivering The Esplanade restaurant at Dunedin’s St Clair. Bill is an extraordinarily conscientious builder whose concern for detail and craft exceeded our expectations. Managing the quality of a complex fitout in the midst of upgrading an earthquake-prone heritage building is challenging; doing so ‘by remote control’ from our office in Auckland even more so. Bill surprised and delighted us by identifying, understanding and acting on the intent of the design, and delivering a restaurant that is more thoroughly resolved and beautifully finished than our drawings deserve. I am grateful for this, and would be delighted to work together again.

House Renovation Roslyn Dunedin
During 2013 my wife and I engaged W Hamilton Building Ltd for a renovation and bedroom extension of 50 sqm plus decks to our residential home.
Bill and Greg helped us by providing input with our early schemes to keep the project within budget. This early input and advice was critical in resolving the level of scope we planned to get into.
The site builders Thomas and Elliot carefully crafted and amalgamated our existing home to our bespoke two bedroom cedar extension.
Greg went beyond the call of duty in detailing a beautiful feature Blue Stone fire place with a Escea gas fire.
We had very good clear communication with Greg and any new additions or deletions to the scope of work were carefully noted and summarised during the building process. Our timeline was challenging and needed careful planning as we were expecting our second child. This meant we only had a 4 week buffer until the planned arrival date. The pressure did not get to the team and our family moved back in with 3 weeks to spare.
We are very happy with our large lounge, fireplace, new laundry, and our two girls love their new rooms. All of which came in on budget.
Our friends have commented on the level of finish and attention to detail and how seamlessly the new extension works with the existing home.
We feel that we have turned a small house into a wonderful family home.
We would recommend W Hamilton Building Ltd for any building work and would not hesitate to use them again.
