Lockwood Taupo - Peter Richards Builders

 

With over 30 years building solid Lockwood homes in the Central Plateau region, award-winning builder Peter Richards has a vast amount of building knowledge and an unrivalled passion for building quality homes.

Born and bred in the region, Peter has been involved in many different building projects, from large commercial buildings on ski fields and throughout the region, to farm buildings and new homes, as well as renovations and additions.

Being a stickler for detail, Peter has built a team of very experienced, local subcontractors, who deliver the highest standard of work. They are also renowned for going that extra mile, as Peter has developed a strong culture within his business of customer service.

Providing peace of mind is paramount for Peter and he ensures that all clients are kept up to date on the progress of their build. He sends weekly photo updates to clients who can't visit their new home, so they can still feel a part of the process.

Peter Richards Builders has been a Registered Master Builder since 1980 and since then has won many awards including national category titles and a number of gold awards.

Peter has also built many homes in Fiji.  He has his own team of builders and regularly travels to check on progress on new builds. You can contact Peter if you're looking to build in the Fijian Islands.

Right from the design stage, commencement of the build, and final completion we both found your staff and you a pleasure to deal with. Nothing was ever a problem.

It's not just a house you built for us but a wonderful home - Brent and Margaret, 2012

Dear Peter, Having now spent our first summer in our new home in Kinloch we could not be happier. We wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you for making the experience of building a successful and pleasant one. The dedication and focus of your team was particularly impressive and was responsible for the smoothness and timeliness with which the work progressed. Your ideas were very helpful to us when we needed to make any decisions and your workmanship was impeccable. You really did "bend over backwards" to please us and we appreciate it. It was terrific doing business with you.- Henry & Fiona, Auckland 2008

New farm accomodation for our staff was a big step for us. At the planning stage we were given advice and helped with all requirements.
The project proceeded on schedule, work was of a high standard and you chose subcontractors capable of performing to a high standard.
I have no hesitation in recommending Peter Richards Builders. - Arthur, Taihape 2007
