“Gemco’s high standards are reflected in the quality of work which they perform.
The meeting of critical deadlines has never been in doubt. Well planned and managed projects have resulted in every deadline being met.
Gemco has provided a consistently high standard of professional service in both projects as well as ongoing maintenance work.
I hold Gemco’s project work as well as ongoing maintenance services in high regard and I have no hesitation in continuing to be an advocate for this performance orientated group.”
Dean Mason, Business Manager, Woodford House
“Gemco was extremely professional throughout the process.
The quality of their work is of an extremely high standard and we were very satisfied that the job was completed on time.
We would be extremely confident to refer Gemco to a friend or colleague.”
Alan and Diana McDonald
“Gemco provided the highest level of professionalism from job concept to completion. They were not only involved in our design and build process but as Project Managers as well. Project Management for first time home builders is a vital part of the entire process and Marty at Gemco was outstanding.
We were lucky enough to have Craig Milne allocated to us as site Foreman/Building Manager and his attention to detail made the difference between a very good job and excellence. This was attested to by Gemco’s industry peers when our house was awarded a gold award and the only award for future proofing in the Hawke’s Bay Master Builders awards during our construction year.
For a project of its size (300sqm dwelling on an unusually shaped section) we were installed within a week of projected occupancy date. We think that is pretty good.
I would recommend the Gemco group to any commercial or private clients. Having a project manager and individual trade teams meant all the difference in a professional and timely project. I would consider Gemco as first choice for any future projects commercial or domestic.”
“Everyone involved, from the apprentices and administrative staff, through to the senior management were highly professional. The project was well managed throughout, with excellent advice and suggestions given when we needed to make decisions.
Gemco’s attention to detail ensured our home was built to a very high standard and one that we are extremely happy living in. Any small difficulties were resolved, with nothing but the best acceptable to our builders.
Whilst the original schedule was delayed, we were kept up to date with developments. We were very pleased that Gemco didn’t rush the job ensuring quality remained the priority.
I would be very pleased to recommend Gemco to anyone looking for a fantastic new home. Why wouldn’t I? They built our dream home and ensured that we ‘Enjoyed the Journey’.”
Maureen Simmons and Peter Mundy
“Gemco acted at all times in a professional manner. They had highly effective processes including project planning and health and safety. We were kept informed at all times.
Gemco were very conscious of doing a good job, we had no reason to question the quality of workmanship, in fact Gemco were more critical of their own work.
Our job did run over time however as it was a major renovation task (with a few unknowns’) and some of the plans were changed we expected some delays. It is worth noting that of all the companies who tendered for the project Gemco were most realistic about the timeframe and that any time frame changes were communicated well in advance.
If and when I build a new home I would choose Gemco as the preferred builder.”
Mike Kelly, CEO, Sirtrack
“Gemco’s projects have been very well planned, on time, within budget and of very high quality.
We are repeat customers of Gemco’s and will continue to be.
In my experience it is unusual to find a company like Gemco where everything is so well organised and planned that it works like clockwork.”
Elanor McDonald, Principal – Leaders Bay Cities
“At the commence of our business venture ‘for Glen Etive’,one thing was very clear to us, that we required high standards of workmanship along with high standards of professionalism to manage our large project. We chose Gemco Construction Ltd as we felt they met the criteria and expectations of how we wanted this project conducted.
Gemco’s level of professionalism throughout this project reached the highest of standards in all areas. Not only as Master Builders but also they conducted every aspect of their business in the most professional manner. The quality of workmanship throughout the construction of our restaurant was ‘premium’ and first class. We were totally amazed with every individual workman no matter what trade, they all performed and delivered the highest of standards.
The quaility of workman ship again was truly first class. All work was completed with a planned dated schedule and supervised by the site manager Gary who ensured that everything happened and was completed in accordance with the scheduled plan. He was an amazing site manager who’s high standards and perfectionism was beyond every expectation. He ensured that we were constantly kept up to date with the scheduled plan. We built up a very good relationship with Gary throughout the whole process. Aftercare service was very important to us and Gemco certainly have delivered that aftercare service every since the completion of Glen Etive. Just one phone call away and the service is still as efficient and first class as ever no matter what size of job they deliver and deal with it A.S.A.P.
The level of satisfaction with ‘Gemco Construction’ one could only describe as exceptional and second to none. We could not fault them on any aspect of their work throughout our project.
We have total confidence and would highly recommend Gemco Construction and have done so since the compeltion of our restaurant and will continue to do so in the future. If you want the highest of workman ship, honesty, integrity, and value, Gemco Construction would have to be the chosen Master Builders for total satisfaction.”

Gemco Construction Ltd (Gemco) was the main contractor for the construction of a new $5.8M grandstand at the Hawke’s Bay Regional Sports Park for the Sports Park Trust.
I am a Director of N-Compass Limited. N-Compass Ltd was Hawke’s Bay Regional Sports Park Trust’s project managers for the overall sports park project. This project included the construction of a modern, 2,500 capacity grandstand. Amongst other things, I was responsible for the delivery of the grandstand on time and within budget. I worked very closely with Gemco to achieve this outcome.
The grandstand is a curved structure with extensive use of precast concrete panels, concrete bleachers as the seating base and structural steel. It was a complex building to construct due to its geometry and the precision with which the concrete panels had to fit together. The construction budget was also very tight and as this was a project by a charitable trust (relying on grants and donations) there was no scope for any cost increases.
Gemco completed the grandstand works well ahead of time and below the construction budget. Their planning and execution of complex and precision work was exemplary. They worked proactively and openly with the project team and the Trust to secure cost savings to the project that were unanticipated, which contributed to the project being below budget. All aspects of their contract with the Trust were dealt with professionally and without any aggravation what so ever. From the project teams and the Trust’s perspective, the project was a great success.
This achievement would not have been accomplished without the leadership, calm authority, commitment, drive and sheer tenacity of the Gemco team. In addition, I have found the Gemco team, namely Ashley Hartley, Derek Lawson and Eddie Holmes to be professional, competent, extremely well organised, proactive, diligent and polite through the course of this project. These are all fantastic attributes in successfully delivering any project.
Consequently, I hold Gemco in high regard and I do not have any hesitation in recommending them for any construction project.
