Commercial 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 EQR, 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, or a full rebuild.

Architectural Rebuilds and Repairs
Anytime you are in a situation of being able to build new means you have the unique opportunity to create a legacy and a valuable asset for the future whilst making a strong statement that combines design, quality and a contemporary lifestyle environment. Due to the Canterbury earthquakes, Christchurch is in the prime position to reshape the city centre and its surroundings.
Building high quality architecturally designed buildings in the Christchurch & Canterbury region is something we excel at. We understand the investment in land and construction is often considerable and we will do everything possible to develop each project alongside our clients to ensure they maximise its true potential and also accommodate all those special and unique features which distinguish it from the norm.
We work closely with a number of designers, architects and engineers to get the desired design just right.
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
If your previous premises were demolished due to the Canterbury earthquakes we can help you get back on your feet.
Whyte Construction has extensive experience in Design and Build contracts. We have strong relationships with our architects, engineers and other consultants, and will work closely with you to design your project, working through the specifications, obtaining your resource and building consents, and completing your build. Whether you are building a small retail complex or a sizeable office building, Whyte Construction will devote the highest level of quality to your project.
