What CM Projects Clients Say

The real test of our craftsmanship is not what we say about ourselves but what our clients say – here is a selection of testimonials from a few of our many satisfied clients.

Chris and his team did extensive renovations to our 80 year old villa. They took the architect’s plans for extensive changes, made some suggestions for improvements, and went ahead and created a reality that was better than we had hoped for. We found Chris and his team knowledgeable (particularly given the age and character of our house), always approachable and helpful, and very professional. Chris made the process an absolute pleasure. They finished the job on time and the quality of the workmanship is second to none.

I would like to give a testimonial for Chris and his team at CM Projects.  They recently completed a renovation on our 1920’s bungalow in New Windsor and we couldn’t be more thrilled with the job!  Chris was extremely professional to deal with & his team were also great and I felt very comfortable leaving them alone to do the job.  The quality of the workmanship is excellent and the value this renovation has added to our home is incredible.  Being an old bungalow we came across a lot of unknown issues while the renovation was happening and Chris dealt with these like they were no problem at all and kept the lines of communication open at all times so we knew exactly what was happening and how it was being remedied.  We have renovated in the past and have been less than happy with the communication from our builder.

Again, we couldn’t be more thrilled with the end result and would happily recommend CM Projects to anyone looking for a great team to do their renovation.  We will definitely be contacting Chris when we are ready to take on our next project.

We found CM Projects to be timely, efficient, friendly and affordable. Chris and his team did a fantastic job with our 60m2 bungalow extension in Grey Lynn. They did what they said they would do; when they said they would do it. We would highly recommend Chris Martin and his team.

I have no hesitation in recommending CM Projects for your property development needs. I was particularly impressed in how they supported and ran the process from initial concept and plan development, through to the building completion. Most importantly, they worked constructively with me to provide the best outcome for my family’s needs and budget. Chris and his team were friendly and professional and from my experience I have found their work to be top quality.

Bungalow do-up by CM Projects – I met Chris by recommendation of one of my tenants when I needed a builder.  Chris came quickly to site and showed his experience and qualities as a builder when I walked him through the scope of work.

I can highly recommend him as he takes responsibility for his work, tools and men. He is a reliable and efficient tradesman.  He wants the best solutions for his clients and I’m happy to say I’m so proud of the finished product!

After Chris completed this renovation project, he and his team have become important part of my team of tradesmen maintaining and doing up our property portfolio. I look forward to our next project together!

When we set about undertaking the renovation of the property we had purchased there were three major considerations for us; cost, timeframe, and quality of build.

We made the decision to go with Chris and we are delighted to say that all these considerations were met and surpassed.

Before the project commenced Chris priced all the components and gave us an excellent indication of what the final costs would be. Throughout the project his fortnightly invoices clearly listed all the hours his team had worked, his purchase cost of all supplies and the cost of these to us. There were no hidden surprises and the end cost was extremely close to what he had originally indicated with the variations coming from improvements and changes that we made on the way.

His timeframes turned out to be accurate and we were very impressed with the work ethic that his team brought to site.

At the end the most important factor is the quality of build and we were both delighted with the completed product. His team of guys are wonderful and it was an enjoyable experience having them all on site and involved.

We are more than happy to recommend Chris and his team to anyone considering a building project and can assure you that you will find working with him a relaxing and rewarding experience.

Chris and his workers made our renovation as painless as possible. Chris communicated well, so we were completely up to date with progress, and made aware of possible pitfalls. His ability to think ahead and work constructively around problems was appreciated. Cleaning up after the job was exemplary! Chris has now done several projects for us, all of the highest standard, and we will use him again.
