76 | T T Ange Davidson Lambly’s quality service and workmanship Lambly Builders Do it once and do it right is the mantra for Lambly Builders, a family-owned company building architecturally designed homes in and around Whangarei. Whether it’s a new home or a renovation, the Lambly team consistently provide quality service and workmanship. Company Director Aaron Lambly says their focus is on doing a great job for their clients whether they are building from a client’s supplied plans or using their own collection of architecturally designed homes. “We appreciate that building a house could well be the biggest decision of a person’s life and that planning to build can be a daunting task. We’re here to help every step of the way and answer any questions as they arise.” “We work closely with our clients and take the time to get to know them and their family and to truly understand what they envision for their new home. We then go through a tried and true eight step process that starts with a free one-hour consultation and finishes with a new home covered by our Premium Quality Guarantee,” says Aaron. “Our design and build package employs an architectural designer who will draft concept drawings and work with the client. It all starts with concepts and moves forward from there. We keep our client’s budget in mind as there’s no point in designing something someone can’t afford.” Lambly Builders has 10 house plans for clients to look at and get inspiration from, and their portfolio is growing. The different plans take in street entrances, site size and location and are based on four bedroom/two bathroom ranging from modern urban to an architectural farm style house with triple gables. “No two houses are the same as the client always has the option to reduce the size, change the number of bedrooms, layout or claddings. They are a good starting point as people can see what they like,” he says. Northland is one of the country’s fastest growing regions and while there is a market downturn in first and second home ownership and group housing, the demand for more bespoke architectural builds remains steady. “There has been a lot of new people coming up from Auckland who are taking advantage of their Auckland house prices to build in Northland which is more affordable. “Covid gave people a chance to reevaluate their lives and realised that they can work from home and have a really good lifestyle out of the city. We’ve seen significant population growth in the region over last few years,” he says. Northland born and bred, Aaron worked for Whangarei building companies until 2011 when he made the leap into self-employment. He now has a team of four qualified builders and an administrator who share his vision of providing high quality building services based on reliability and communication. “These principles have helped us grow through referrals from happy new homeowners and architects. “We’ve built business systems that ensure quality, communication, budgeting and scheduling. We are proud members of the New Zealand Certified Builders association, therefore can offer our clients additional peace of mind with a HALO 10-year guarantee.“ CRAIG MORRISON 021 078 6621 ELITE ELECTRICS ARE PROUD TO SUPPORT LAMBLY BUILDERS Faulkner Construction BUILDING Fast quotes Stock and price checks Order and delivery updates Free PowerPass membership program Trade Specialists in-store and Account Managers to help manage your projects Find out how we can help your business Helping you get the job done is our trade At Bunnings Trade we’re here to support your business. 0 8 0 0 2 5 5 7 5 8 24hr New Housing - Plumbing & New Housing - Drainage - Maintenance Work Representing Excellence Master Plumbers Our purpose is to provide you with plumbing and drainage services Auckland wide.

Skill and innovation “Quality has always been our mantra at Faulkner Construction. We view each home we build as if it were our own,” he says. The company’s success is attributed not only to the quality of it builds but also to the conduct on-site. Ross says clients have expressed appreciation for the punctuality, friendliness, and tidiness of the Faulkner team, making the building process a positive and memorable experience. Ross runs the company with co-director Ross McConnell who brings a wealth of experience from his background as an engineer and project manager with Fletcher Construction. Ross McConnell acknowledges that building a new home can be one of the most exciting yet potentially stressful projects. “At Faulkner, the focus is on supporting clients T T from page 74 through this journey, ensuring a positive building experience,” he says. Ross McConnell says an integral part of Faulkner Construction’s success is its dedication to training apprentices. The company takes on apprentice carpenters, trains them to compete nationally in the Apprentice of the Year competition, and contributes to their growth as builders. This commitment to nurturing talent is evident in the numerous accolades received by the company’s carpentry apprentices over the years. The long-term benefit is the development of builders who know how to work to the high standard required to create award-winning homes to clients, they say. Ross Faulkner captures the essence of Faulkner Construction’s ethos stating: “We’re a second-generation family business, and our family grows with every person that joins our team, every client we work for and every home that we deliver.” “We work closely with our clients and take the time to get to know them and truly understand what they envision for their new home.”
