"Just a brief note to express how pleased my wife and I were with the service recently provided by Whyte Construction through your offices. We were only able to return Scott's phone call in the early evening, and he very obligingly arranged to meet my wife at the property at 8pm that evening. His workers were on site promptly the next day. They completed the work fully and professionally and made a follow up call to check that we were happy with the work done.
Further building alterations to accommodate a heating installation have been carried our by Whyte Construction this week, and we can confirm that again this company have exceeded our expectations. They turn up as arranged, with the attitude that they are working for you, they tidy up after themselves, and again we received a call to check that we had found the work to be satisfactory. Our dealings with this building company have been a pleasure."

Architectural Renovations
We have the knowledge and skills required to alter any architectural home, retaining those special features that make it unique. We work closely with a number of designers, architects and engineers to enable us to  get the property looking just the way you want. Whether you want to modernise an ageing architectural home or just spruce it up we can help you get your home into shape.
Build to Budget
Controlling costs and estimating your project correctly depends upon having the right people to provide you with these services, people with the experience and expertise to do the job right.
At Whyte Construction we have vast experience in the management of project cost. We budget, plan and monitor your project and look for the optimum balance between cost, quality and time requirements.
Our Quantity Surveyors have the necessary skills to use principles and techniques for issues of estimation, cost control, budget planning, project management, planning and programming.
Our key objectives are to attain accurate cost estimates and schedules, to avoid cost overruns and schedule slips to ensure your project is done on time and to your budget.
Design & Build
With our associated architects, we will work closely with you to design a home that meets your needs, and that complies with Council planning controls. Our designs aim for optimum space and light, using materials that are reliable in terms of maintenance and resale value. We can visualise your design with our 3D computerised designs in colour. Once the design is finished, we apply to Council for a resource consent application if required.
We will give you an accurate quote for the alterations of your home. Our quote is for the entire job, with no hidden extras, and the price is guaranteed not to go up, unless you make changes to the plans or specifications.
We see the building process as a cooperative working relationship between designer, builder and client to achieve your desired result.
If your project requires Council consent, regular inspections by Council inspectors ensure construction is in accordance with the Building Code.
Our Process
● Consultation - we have an initial consultation to understand your needs and requirements

● Final Costs Adjusted - if required due to any requirements from the Council
● Project Management - during all stages of the construction phase your Project Manager will ensure efficient project timing and keep your up-to-date
● Final Sign-Off and Handover - all work is signed off and guarantees and warranties are provided
Project Management
We look after your renovation from the very first step for you. Once the renovation is started we assign you a Project Manager who is your first point of contact. He sets the schedule, and keeps an eye on the build. 
Our Project Managers lead and oversee a variety of building projects from start to finish. Their job experience ranges from small renovation jobs to complete home build meaning you are in great hands.
Your Project Manager keeps everyone in the loop during the entire project, from yourself as the client, the architects right through to their workers and subcontractors. They quickly attend to any problems that may arise.
They organise the equipment and materials that are required for the job, and although they may not be doing the physical work on the site, they are responsible for ensuring that all work is finished properly, on time and within budget.
