We were fortunate enough to have Civil Construction closely involved in our earthquake repairs. Specifically, they replaced one retaining wall, repaired another retaining wall, replaced many of our drains and replaced a drive. These jobs were made more difficult by a steep site and problematic access.
Overall, we were very impressed with the professionalism and strong work ethic of the team. Civil Construction persevered with our repair, despite insurance hold ups that caused them inconvenience. We greatly appreciated this, as otherwise our return to our home would have been substantially delayed. They seemed undeterred by working outside over three consecutive days of sleet, and I gather that no days were lost on the job through their fault. We were also happy with the high level of input from the team leader, Peter Vaughan. He seemed to be always on site, either working directly himself or closely monitoring the work of others, to make sure that a high quality job resulted. In particular, our new retaining wall is a source of pride and beauty. We assume that it is not usual for people to feel so positive about their retaining walls! Our neighbors have been so impressed with this retaining wall, that I gather that Civil Construction now have contracts to replace retaining walls for at least two of our neighbors. Our drive behind our house is now able to withstand torrential rain and hail, and drain completely and immediately. Finally, we were happy to have Civil Construction working on our site. They were friendly, offered sound advice, communicated well and were considerate towards our neighbors and ourselves.

Civil Construction completed the wall in a timely manner and with great workmanship. Given the wall is going to be visible after completion we were concerned about the visual impact of the wall. Given the high standards the wall was competed to, it has become something of a feature of the subdivision.

An outstanding job. I am delighted with the outcome. We had a number of senior management visit the site when they were down here recently and whilst they didn't pass too much comment on the actual install, the important issue was that the job was completed safely.
The project was completed within a week and to budget. The works were undertaken safely and in accordance with the method statement developed.
Civil Construction was highly motivated from the start of the project, implementing a seven day working week in order to achieve construction milestone, a key factor in maintaining production targets and keeping the project on programme. The team remained focused on safety throughout the contract and engaged in effective communication to resolve constructability issues that invariably arise on projects of this magnitude and diversity. The construction crews applied their technical expertise and adopted best industry practice to achieve the desired results.
Civil Construction Ltd won the tender on their attributes and successful track record with technically challenging civil works. They have extensive project management experience in this area and I felt very comfortable being guided by their expert advice and opinions.
