We engaged Hamish Ritchie Builders to build our home in Oct 2005.

Shane and I wanted a contemporary home, with the mix of polished concrete block, Linea board and Titan Board panels.

We got our plans drawn up by an architectural draftsman, and then set out to get various quotes from building companies in Christchurch.

Hamish issued us with an itemised quote that set out payments and time lines and was very competitive. So we opted for going with Hamish as we wanted that “independent builder” service, and it also gave us more flexibility.

We are very happy with our new home and the service we got from Hamish and his team through out the whole process. Nothing was a problem! We were so happy in fact that we have recommended him to all our friends and family, and my sister is building with Hamish Ritchie Builders at present.

We own Seven Cafe located in the House & Garden facility at Church Corner, Upper Riccarton.

The cafe occupies a new building on the corner of Riccarton Road and Hansons Lane and was constructed as part of the redevelopment of the site then leased to us.

While Hamish was directly responsible to us we maintained a very close relationship with him during the building process and were very impressed with his work. organisation and desire to provide the best possible building. The time table was very tight for construction and even tighter  for the fit-out and commissioning of the cafe.

Fit-out was our responsibility and based on our experience with him during building we engaged Hamish to assist in locating and coordinating sub contractors for this work.

We were very pleased with the results and the huge efforts made by all concerned to complete the work to a high standard in difficult conditions.

As a result of our experience with this building, Hamish will be our preferred builder for future developments and we have no hesitation in recommending him to others.

Hamish Ritchie and his team were superb to work with. Hamish bought to the project a wealth of knowledge and expertise, and his input was invaluable ensuring the job ran smoothly and on time.

His skill at handling all sub-contractors meant a stress-free job for us and ensured our day to day life was disrupted as little as possible during the course of the building works.

The team worked brilliantly together - they were always friendly to deal with, hard-working and always left the site as tidy as possible each day which was truely appreciated as we were living on site during the alterations.

Without hesitation, we will be looking to Hamish Ritchie for any future building work.

When we embarked on our 5th building project, my wife and I were keen to get a builder who was going to give us something a bit special, someone who was prepared to ensure we got the house and home we were after, offer advice, supply us with contacts to other top quality tradesmen and work to a budget and time line.

With Hamish Ritchie builders we got all that and more. We wanted a modern home with a quality finish that we could enjoy and relax in and this is exactly what we got. We had a number of subtle plan changes and additions to the house once it was under construction, these challenges were dealt with without fuss, nothing was ever a problem.

I would have no hesitation in using Hamish Ritchie builders again, or recommending them to anyone else who wanted a stress free building job done.
