"Our building was severely damaged by the earthquakes of 2011, and apart from any repairs it also required a modern upgrade from its 1990’s appearance to make the building more lettable in the marketplace. Fitz Construction came recommended to the Trustees and myself as a firm to help us achieve the repair and refurbishment of 334 Manchester street. The two story 1500 m2 building required a demolition and replacement of the roof, partition walls, flooring, structural upgrade, fire system upgrade, complete rewire, brand new plumbing, and redesign of bathroom areas. The entirety of the work required took place over the course of a year and Paul liaised with neighboring property owners and tenants, to assure minimal disruption occurred to all affected parties. Paul updated me with the daily progress of the project and any issues that may have taken place along the way and the entire project went very smoothly considering the difficult nature of the project. We would recommend Paul and his team to anyone looking for assistance with their next commercial building project."

"My Project consisted of three primary goals that I needed to achieve:
1. Bring my building to 67% NBS or better by structurally strengthening various areas that were identified by independent Engineers appointed by Fitz Construction.
2. Bring my building up to the current building code standards of fire systems, disabled accessibility and other compliance related items as required by the local authority.
3. Assist the tenant and myself with a modernized fit out where the costs were to be apportioned between both parties.

Paul and his team helped me from the concept and design phase all the way through to code of compliance certification. Along the way we made changes which required variations and Fitz Construction incorporated all the changes into the existing schedule without any delay of the timeline at all. I now have a long-term tenant who is happy with their new work space and I would recommend Fitz Construction to anyone needing assistance and any work done to their commercial building."

"Paul was project managing the strengthening of commercial premises of which I was a tenant preparing to move in. Paul was great at keeping me in the loop, keeping things moving, ensuring my painters were compliant, and accommodating additional requests. His team of builders, engineers and plumbers are solid and dependable. He ensured compliance at all times, arranged appropriate sign off, and helped resolve any issues while being personable and professional."

"Following the 2010 earthquakes, our severely damaged commercial building needed a considerable amount of repair and upgrade. Working with Paul Fitzsimmons of Fitz Construction Ltd was great. The project from my point of view ran really smoothly and I was really pleased with the final outcome. He dealt with the day to day running of the renovation and upgrade. There were variations and challenges at certain points of the project, and I have to say that Paul dealt with them efficiently, and with excellent communication throughout. I was really pleased with the service that Fitz Construction gave us and I would be happy to recommend them to others or use them again."

"Fitz Construction was recommended to me by a contact in Christchurch to attend to remediation of our property that required significant strengthening work. As we live out of Christchurch I needed someone competent, trustworthy, knowledgeable, and who also had good relationships with the required trades. Paul has those contacts, and between them all, they completed the tasks required under sometimes difficult circumstances. He maintained liaison with tenants and worked with them so they could still manage their businesses with their day to day requirements. Paul’s professionalism has resulted in a very satisfactory conclusion to a substantial and difficult project."

Brian Ngan | Owner of Waltham

I highly recommend Paul & Fitz Construction to project manage any construction/repair work."
