Office & Retail Earthquake Repairs

As a Christchurch construction company we are deeply involved in all aspects of the Canterbury rebuild. We have a team of qualified tradespeople and contractors available that can offer knowledge and expertise for the repair or rebuild of your premises.
We have worked closely with many Cantabrians, completing thousands of repairs since the September 2010 earthquake.
Having worked closely with Fletcher EQC, and being an accredited contractor with many of the major insurance companies we can help you understand the process and work through your options.
We pride ourselves in our quality and will work with you and your insurance company to return your premises to working order whether you are facing minor or major repairs.



Architectural Repairs and Rebuilds
Our design and documentation process involves a detailed analysis of your office or retail space. Together with our architects we provide a range of solutions designed specifically for your requirements.
Keeping to a budget
Keeping to the budget has been on everyone's mind during earthquake repairs. At Whyte Construction we use cost engineering, a practice that relates to the management of project cost. This involves activities like estimating, cost management, cost prediction, investment appraisal and risk analysis.
This means we can budget, plan and monitor your project. We look for the optimum balance between cost, quality and time requirements.
Our Quantity Surveyors have the judgement and experience to use principles and techniques for issues of estimation, cost control, budget planning and management science, profitability analysis, project management and planning and programming.
Our key objective is to provide accurate cost estimates and schedules to avoid cost overruns and schedule slips. This goes beyond preparing cost estimates and schedules by helping manage resources and supporting assessment and decision making.
Design & Build
Whyte Construction are experts in Office & Retail Fit Outs. We will maximise your available space to get the best return from your property. We offer fit out solutions, including interior design or re-design packages tailored to your specified needs and budget.
From simple facelifts to full scale fit out solutions, we work closely with you to deliver your vision.
With a design service available we are able to adapt and modify projects to fit within budgets and construction lead times. In fact we have the flexibility and scope within our own company and the specialists we work with, to actually accelerate building and fit out programmes to exceed client expectations. This often involves working safely and unobtrusively in client-occupied work spaces both during and outside of normal working hours. Our people are always particularly security-conscious when on the job too.
