For Bee and myself a "new build" was met with a lot of emotions.
Excitement as we finally had the opportunity to design a building to our needs and requirements, being the dream for nearly 20 years.


It was also met with a sense of the unknown, building requirements and more importantly what it would cost.


Hugh from Salt was great! Not only did he offer us a fixed price for our new build but his work ethic was amazing and workmanship exceeded our expectations

With clear communication, and direction Hugh made our building experience easy, we completely trusted his judgement and guidance with an end result that we are so delighted with. 


We would not hesitate in recommending Salt Construction to anyone who is looking at building.

He was particularly great at keeping communication lines open, with daily updates if we weren’t on site, and swiftly alerting us to anything we needed to know to plan ahead.

My husband and I recently engaged Salt to renovate a house we’d just purchased. It was a tight timeframe as we had a baby on the way, and Hugh ensured it was smooth and easeful from beginning to end


It’s the first time we’ve had any building work done, and Hugh immediately made us feel really comfortable with the process and with the costings


He was particularly great at keeping communication lines open, with daily updates if we weren’t on site, and swiftly alerting us to anything we needed to know to plan ahead. 

He was really approachable and flexible with our last minute creative changes and additions - nothing was too small or too much trouble to ask - and the end result was everything we’d hoped it would be and more. 


He took initiative and troubleshooted so it didn’t feel at all complicated or time consuming from our end. 


Seemingly small things like keeping the site tidy made a big difference too. We have no hesitation in recommending Salt to others.

From a build quality point of view what they did, how they operated and the finished product was second to none and absolutely amazing.

Salt Construction (Hugh and the team) were our first experience doing a combination of a renovation of an existing bungalow and a new build of an extension.


The process of getting to the building stage was both daunting and time consuming for us. 


We thought the building segment would be the biggest headache; based mainly from what we’d witnessed of other builders with family and friends who had done new builds and extensions. In short, it wasn’t.


We had expectations around the quality of the build and the communication with/from the building company. 


From day one Hugh and the team turned up 15 minutes before their start time, the saw started on the dot and they worked non-stop all day


From a build quality point of view what they did, how they operated and the finished product was second to none and absolutely amazing, you’re welcome to come around and see for yourself.

From a communication point of view Hugh provided a fixed price contract (which he kept to) with two ‘unknown’ areas. We were initially nervous about this but his communication through these two stages (eg. digging out 3m post holes in Muriwai sand and the potential for cave in) was very good and we talked through what was happening, why it was happening, anything that needed to change and a rough estimate of any additional costs, before they commenced the work.

Their sub-contractors were also amazing and worked in well with the time frames provided by Hugh.

After witnessing how Hugh and the team operate compared to the experiences of friends and family and the bloated ‘by the hour’ rates and below par craftsmanship we would highly recommend Salt Construction for any renovation, extension or new build. 


We recently needed a small deck extension completed, and went no further than the Salt Construction team. We’re happy to discuss our experience with Salt Construction on the phone at any time. Cheers, Nick Carroll - 021 800 985.
