Customer Testimonials

"Brogans were selected as the builder and project manager for a new house on the site of our existing old batch at Langs Beach. About 10% of the old house was retained in what is now our new home.

Work commenced in February 2014 with the demolition of the old house and all work including some of the landscaping requirements was completed mid-2015.

Our Project Control Group (PCG), which met about every two weeks or as required, comprised:

Brogan Builders:                                        Grant Eager - Manger
                                                                  Lars Jansen – Site Manager
Architect                                                    Cameron Russell -Auckland
Design                                                       Maggie Bryson –Auckland
Owners                                                      Graeme Wickham

The PCG team met regularly to review progress, issues, and make decisions. There was a collaborative approach adopted with all parties contributing to provide the very best outcome for the owners. Problems, of which there were few, were dealt with in a pragmatic way. Major downtimes on the project were caused by foundations issues and the Xmas break which added over 2 ½ months to the project’s duration. Otherwise the project proceeded in a timely way while still meeting the owners’ expectations on quality. Brogans managed the sub-contractors well with all their work completed to the high standard required.

Barbara and I are absolutely delighted at the final outcome with the very high standard achieved and in particular the insulation qualities of our home in both winter and summer.

We highly endorse Brogan Builders to anyone requiring their building services."

"Brogan Builders led by Masterbuilder Grant Eager, built an architecturally designed 4 bedroom beach front beach house over a period of twelve months.  The design was complex and the fit out was to a high standard.  During this period Grant worked closely with the architect and kept us informed as owners.  He showed the ability to listen and make helpful and often cost saving suggestions.

The project proceeded in a timely way while still meeting our expectations on quality.  Brogans managed the sub-contractors well with all their work completed to the high standard required.

Should you decide to engage Brogan Builders for any future building plan, you will not be disappointed.  If need be, we would certainly employ them again and we have no hesitation in recommending them."

Yours sincerely,

"This letter is to thank you and recognises the outstanding job done by Brogan Builders Ltd in the building of our new house at Highland Place, Lang Cove.

From the first days of excavation through to this time, some three months after completion, we have nothing but the highest respect and admiration for the commitment that your company devoted to our project.

Through the 10 months of the building exercise you strived for the utmost in perfection. It was quickly recognised by Carol and myself that you identified the 'feel and theme' of the house and were able to visualise outside the square for us to achieve that theme. The many suggestions and changes that were made were always well received and passionately embraced.

A hallmark of our new house is the comment that we receive from passers-by and neighbours who talk openly and sincerely of the tidiness of the site throughout the building process. Their extremely high standard of workmanship is now on display for all to see.

In my position in business, I hear many accounts of the plight suffered by many people at the hands of builders and trades people. It is a credit to you that every tradesman that you brought on site was a mirror of the skill and professionalism of your team. Each and every sub trade was another cog in an exceptionally well oiled machine.

I would like to also acknowledge and thank Leigh for the exceptional tabulating and presentation of the accounts. With the many changes we made it would have been easy for this to turn into an accounting nightmare. Leigh made it easy for us with clear and concise detailing of all the variations.

Grant, it has been an absolute pleasure to have you build our new home and we feel privileged that we were lucky enough to have Brogan Builders Ltd recommended to us by Ross and Diane Whimp who spoke so highly of you."

With sincere appreciation,
Peter and Carol Lahood

"This firm, led by Master Builders Grant Eager and Kelvin James have built up a team of dedicated workpeople, who are professional in all aspects of the building trade.

We have been fortunate in having this firm involved in building two quality, large, architecturally designed beach homes for us and the finished product has been outstanding and their attention to detail is worthy of special mention.

Grant and Kelvin have been wonderful to work with, both having the ability to listen to both of us as owners, but also being able to offer sound suggestions in a friendly, courteous manner.

Should you decide to engage Brogan Builders for any future building plan, you will not be disappointed. If need be, we would certainly employ them again and we have no hesitation in recommending them."
