• James Bennie was employed by Naylor Love for six years before he started his own company. We still maintain a close relationship with Bennie Builders helping Naylor Love when work calls. James has a passion for complex insitue concrete work making him an asset when contracted to us as a leading hand for our Building 8 project at Remakables Park.

  • James was on board with our build from Day 1 as we worked through the construction methodology with him while we prepared the plans.  Our house included thermal detailing that was new to James but his team took on the challenge of building an 'airtight' house and they succeeded in achieving the blower door test.   On site the team were friendly, focused and they took great pride in their workmanship.  James was excellent at  coordinating the key trades and the house was built to our timeframe and our budget.  We enjoyed the whole building process with the team very much.

  • James and his team at Bennie Builders delivered everything that they promised. The fit out for our third establishment had to be completed in a short timeframe but still finished to a very high standard. James demonstrated a real ability to manage and juggle subcontractors and suppliers while keeping the job moving under very testing conditions due to weather and unforeseen problems with the pre-existing building shell. Many of the bespoke finishings within the café were technically difficult to install as they were unique and had not been done before. We are thoroughly impressed with the results and would definitely use Bennie Builders for our future projects.

  • I was thrilled with the way Bennie Builders helped me through a project building two townhouses in Queenstown. Not only was the construction of very high quality but James and his team were most helpful throughout the project, helping to solve all those problems that inevitably fall through the cracks between design and construction detail. Mia too was most helpful in being able to guide me through the process of subdivision which involved obtaining Council Consents, liaising with a surveyor and obtaining new titles. I cannot speak highly enough of this great team that made this complex project seem so easy.

  • We've had the pleasure of using James and his team on several home renovation projects, from kitchen improvements to custom bookshelves, and we've been pleased with the results on every level. As project manager, James has always been able to understand our whims and fantasies, and he usually has a better solution on offer when needed. The members of the team have always been tidy and efficient, and very easy to work with. We look forward to working with them again, and recommend Bennie Builders without reservation.

  • We bought our 'Bennie Builders' built house at Jacks Point as a new build. From the moment we walked in, we fell in love with the simplicity and openness of the design, as well as the build details that brought everything together into a purchase. The positioning of the house to maximise views and the clever use of window placement to maximize sun throughout the day results in a real 'wow' factor. We dealt with both James and Mia during the purchase and they were both very helpful in making sure we knew everything there was about the house and we've been more than happy recommending 'Bennie Builders' to a number of friends and colleagues since moving in. Highly recommended and you'll be in great hands.
