beca_logo_th“Your team demonstrated a “can do” approach to this job and it made my job that much easier to know I could rely on them to close out items. This was especially evident during and at the end of the defects liability period when all defects were rectified quickly and not left to drag on.”

Brent Johnson, Project Director, Beca Carter Hollings and Ferner Ltd

continential_cars_th“Canam have been involved in developing seven of our Auckland based dealer facilities over the past six years and we have always found them to be extremely professional, accommodating and easy to work with. We have been allocated extremely efficient site managers, regardless of the size and scope of the project, who have taken care of the complexities that lie within our different divisions. Time-lines have always been tight, with opening schedules designed around vehicle model launches and overseas dignitaries’ schedules rather than construction realities. Although we have often asked the impossible, it has been a rare occasion when Canam have been unable to meet a deadline or indeed handover a completed building on time.”

Richard Pitt, Managing Director, Continental Car Services

waitakere_trust_th“We have appreciated your efforts to ensure that quality standards and cost expectations have been met, and in particular your attention to detail, which has ensured that, whilst substantial changes have been made to the project during the design and construction, the costs have been maintained and the project has continued to be value driven. Your work practices, especially in the areas of health and safety and environmental management were of a high standard and the works were delivered on time.”

Ross Dallow, Chairman, Waitakere Regional Stadium Trust

kings_school_th“The project finished within the agreed timeframe and within the negotiated contract price. Most importantly, in a school environment where there are a number of young boys on the campus and security and safety are paramount, their onsite team and management personnel were absolutely first class and a pleasure to work with on this project.”

Peter Harrison, Executive Chairman, King’s School

ignite_architects_th“The Canam team successfully completed this $20 million dollar project in a very tight timeframe yet maintained a quality that would usually be expected from a longer construction period. As on all projects a variety of issues arose and I found that both Brent and Nick were proactive in resolving issues in both a timely and non-confrontational manner.”

John McNamara, Associate Director, Ignite Architects

babbage_th“Loukas, it is a credit to Canam Construction not only for the way you went about the intricate task of a top down building solution, the onsite management, the inclusive manner of your companies approach to the consultants and the client team, but also the view of upholding the Architects concept even when changes had to be made for financial or the availability of products reasons.”

David J Foster, Babbage Consultants Limited


“The level to which Canam went to ensure we were completely satisfied in every aspect of the process was again pleasing to experience, regular meetings, constant email and phone contact, willingness to change when change was needed etc made this second project just as enjoyable as the first, even to the very end when the finish date was crucial they worked hard and accomplished the building within the deadline set.”

Graham Patterson, General Manager, Marketing and Sales, CablePrice (NZ) Ltd

Neill Culley, Managing Director, Cable Bay Vineyards


“Started in October 2008, work is progressing so well that completion is expected by December 2009, ahead of schedule. This achievement is due to an outstanding sense of work organization and supply and shipping planning. In addition to the good progress, quality of the work is up to international standard and the last report from the independent building inspector from New Caledonia stated that nothing was to be corrected or even improved in terms of work quality.”

dbs“It has been a pleasure having Canam Construction Ltd with its local partner during the construction of the six story, $55 million tala construction project as the main contractor.The project had unique challenges that tested a high degree of skill in financial management, design and build aspects, and value management. However of extreme importance to us as a client was their ability to handle a multi cultural environment within a foreign frame work.”

I have found them to be co-operative with other sub-trades not under their immediate control, and generally concerned for the wellbeing of the other occupants of the building site.”
