Client and professional association testimonials

Judi and Ross Barrett

"We are very pleased that the Master Builders Association recommended we contact John Hanna when we needed help to get a Code Compliance Certificate retrospectively. Immediately, we felt Hanna Construction was working in our best interests to solve our problem. John wisely questioned the previous advice we had been given, and set about finding the best way to satisfy the Wellington City Council that the house was compliant in all respects. We are grateful that John was mindful of keeping costs to a minimum and that he ensured the work was performed as quickly as possible. The work required to be done by Hanna Construction was various, both interior and exterior. We consider that all of the tasks were performed to a very high standard. The men had a “can do” attitude. Hanna Construction had a good relationship with their preferred sub-contractors who came promptly when needed, resulting in no delays occurring. The Hanna Construction team were a pleasure to have in and around the house. They were reliable, professional, cheerful and considerate. At all times the work site was left tidy at the end of the day. We would thoroughly recommend Hanna Construction to anybody requiring a building company".

"Hanna Construction Limited has carried out a number of building projects for me or entities I am associated with over a number of years. This includes commercial building work and residential work including several residential units in the one development. In all my dealings Hanna Construction has preformed to the highest of standards and I have been completely satisfied with the standard of building work, the meeting of time frames and all other aspects of the tasks undertaken. In particular I have found that the company has always been very strong on communication relating to the tasks undertaken. From time to time practical suggestions have been made in connection with plans, design and construction processes resulting in cost savings. This is of considerable value. All of the company's employees I dealt with were considerate and expert in their work. I am very happy to strongly recommend Hanna Construction Limited for undertaking residential and medium sized commercial building work".

The Hanna Construction Team lead by John and Ben Hanna have proven to be very competent in managing the building process and delivering built product to a very high standard of workmanship. John and Ben managed the project on site and coordinated all of the subcontractors. John and Ben have proven to communicate well with the projects clients, Project Manager and Architect providing regular communication on progress, providing clear and professional documentation, raising matters on site quickly and putting a great deal of effort into offering solutions to contingency items inherent in any project. John and Ben take a great deal of pride in their work evident in the very high standard of workmanship presented at each phase of the construction project and the finished project. The Hanna Construction team are friendly and helpful conducting themselves in a professional and safety conscious manner on site. I have no hesitation in recommending the Hanna's team for any project small or large. It is evident that John and Ben personally put a great deal of pride and integrity in leading their team with a focus on the clients requirements. This makes them a valuable member of any construction project".


"We've used Hanna Construction Ltd three times now and thought it was about time we left some feedback. In summary: we highly recommend John and his boys. They are professional, efficient and do a great job. Hanna Construction are our first choice when considering work on our 100 year old villa. John has an eye for detail, great advice about what and how restoration work should be done and good reliable contacts. For the first job we asked John to replace rotten weather boards around the house. On the first day the boys found a nail through the water supply which had rotted a few of the studs. They fixed the problem on the same day and moved on. When repairing the back wall, they found that the bottom plate had completely disintegrated due to contact with ground moisture and the wall compromised. Not a problem, they rebuilt the wall (installing insulation and tidying up the plumbing at the same time). The boys worked hard getting the job completed just in time for the winter weather. The second job we asked John to do was to rebuild our retaining wall that failed during the winter storms. Upon requesting John's services his foreman was onsite measuring up the site at 6am the next day. These guys don't hang around. John did a fantastic job of dealing with an outsourced insurance company who were trying to cut corners. We were very impressed with both the speed at which the wall went up and quality of the workmanship. Whilst redecorating one of the rooms we found that the southern corner of the house was letting in water and corner studs had been compromised. The boys had replaced corner studs and double flashed the corner within half a day. Did I mention these boys don’t hang around? I’d personally like to thank Hanna Construction Ltd for all the hard work they’ve put into our house and feel that John and his team have really delivered the maximum value for our money."


"I engaged Hanna Construction Ltd in early 2013 to undertake remedial work to my 1920’s character home in Thorndon. They came highly recommended by our building inspector. Hanna Construction was asked to re-hinge 26 windows, replace the flashings and repair some rotting timber. My overall experience with Hanna Construction was first class. John Hanna under promised and over-delivered on all aspects of the job. His team were some of the most professional tradesmen I have encountered. They were friendly, courteous and polite, hard working and at the end of the day, left the place tidy and safe. This was important to us as we have an 18 month toddler who loves to play outside in the evenings and weekends. The safety aspect dawned on me when I had another tradesman working on site at the same time as Hanna Construction. At the end of the day, the other tradesman had left unused staples and insulation fluff around the front and back yard which was a hazard just waiting to happen while Hanna’s builder left our place clean, tidy and most importantly safe. I am no builder but I can spot a shoddy job a mile off. The quality of workmanship by Hanna Construction was very good and I could not fault anything they did (my wife has a hawks eye when it comes to finishing detail). The final price that came in was per their quote despite Hanna using his own scaffolding to complete our job sooner than expected at no extra cost to me. Overall, I would (and have) recommending them to others in Wellington needing a quality Master Builder who is customer focussed and does a great job."
