wd build commercial building french farm

French Farm Winery, 2/12 Winery Rd, French Farm

French Farm winery owners approached WD Builders to bring the buildings of French Farm Winery to an NBS rating of 67%. To enable this work to be done WD Builders needed to work within the existing structure, while introducing complete new steel portal frames to assist the original steel portals and give the additional strength required. As part of the refurbishment the existing cathedral ceilings were completely stripped out and replaced making for a seamless repair.

49 Gloucester St, Christchurch

WD Builders works closely with Martin Wakefield, a body corporate management firm in Christchurch and handles all of their earthquake claims. The eight residential apartments situated at 49 Gloucester St were in need of a full interior and exterior plaster and paint. Before the work could commence WD Builders needed to cost the repairs, so that the owners of the properties could approach their insurer in order to receive what their true EQ cost of repair actually was. After receiving the quoted amount that WD Builders put forward, we were then engaged to fully plaster and make weather tight the exterior cladding, while our interior decorating team completed the interior Gib repairs, plastering and full repaint of all eight units.

Rangiora Mazda 27 Southbrook Rd, Southbrook

The owners of Rangiora Mazda engaged WD Builders to undertake the earthquake strengthening and upgrade of the historic church on their Site at 27 Southbrook Rd, Southbrook. Our brief was to retrofit structural steel members into the church while keeping the vaulted natural timber ceilings. After the successful steel installation the internal stone walls were then lime rendered to maintain the original appearance, while the exterior walls were plastered and painted to protect the buildings integrity.

Puriri St, Fendalton

WD Builders were contacted to offer a price to construct a new home, designed by Fulton Ross Team Architects, on a site in Puriri St, Fendalton. We were successful in winning the job and started a close working relationship with the owners. As a firm we like to meet the owners’ expectation not only by offering a quality well-constructed home, but on a more personal level listening to their ideas and working towards their total satisfaction. This project was completed on budget and on time with very satisfied clients.

wd build commercial building home ideas

Home Ideas Centre, 37 Manderville St, Riccarton

What started out to be an exterior concrete crack repair job with a full elastomeric paint system to all of the building’s exterior concrete tilt panels, ended up being a large interior suspended ceiling upgrade while the display stands remained in place. WD Builders needed to construct a scaffolding planked floor above the working displays to protect both the public and stand holders’ investments below. We then stripped out all of the suspended ceilings, installed roof bracing, upgraded all of the recessed ceiling lighting along with fitting a full heat and ventilation system to the entire centre. No damages occurred to the stands throughout the job!

WD Builders stood out as a great team. The choice to go with Mitch and Shaughan soon showed to be the right one
