90 | Smart new builds from leading firm Kim Newth BUILDING Canterbury - Holloway Builders In Strauss Place, four townhouses have been built to designs by Gravity Architecture. Family owned and operated, Holloway Builders is an award winning Canterbury company that sets a high bar when it comes to industry best customer service and quality workmanship. The team has a proud track record of high standard projects from architectural new builds and restorations to multi-unit developments. Founded by James Holloway in 2011, with wife Pip joining a few years later, Holloway Builders is today well-established in Canterbury as a Registered Master Builder and Licensed Building Practitioner that ‘builds it your way’. “James has been running Holloway Builders for many years and is also our project manager; when the owner of the business is your project manager you know you can rely on quality outcomes,” says company Sales Manager Kerry Oberholzer. “We are always getting positive comments and feedback and that stems from our honest and transparent approach. We even do our own QS in house, which clients have access to right from the start at concept through to completion.” Kerry finds it very rewarding to be part of a business that carries its owners’ name, as James stands by his reputation of seeking the very best for every client. Pip shares that philosophy and is also heavily involved in the business, managing compliance and administration as a key member of the team. “We’re all passionate about what we do and that goes a long way.” Alongside their own team of professional builders, Holloway Builders works closely with a trusted team of loyal contractors and suppliers. This is a real advantage in today’s volatile market, bringing an assurance of good service and good pricing. In Christchurch’s increasingly intensive housing market, Holloway Builders is working with developers on a number of smart new multi-unit developments and townhouses. Holloway Builders has recently completed a new townhouse development for Habitus Group in Strauss Place and putting the finishing touches on another for Crawford Group in Brougham Street. “All these properties are two-storey townhouses and sold off the plan, which is pretty cool and shows where the market is going right now.” In Strauss Place, four townhouses have been built to designs by Gravity Architecture. Each contemporary home has two bedrooms and a bathroom on one side of front entry and kitchen/living on the other, along with an upper mezzanine floor with additional space for a study or other uses. All come with off-street parking and are designed for easy accessibility with level entry and other wheelchair friendly features. The development has considerable street appeal, with townhouses finished externally in stylish vertical shiplap cedar and brick. Skylights bring an infusion of natural light to the upper levels. Clever design ensures these homes have a spacious feel that belies the compact footprint. In Brougham Street, the Holloway team has built six two-storey townhouses designed by Elevation Architecture. Streamlined and crisp from the street, the external finish is a chic combination of horizontal natural timber weatherboard and white integra concrete cladding. All homes have their own garaging and enjoy a pleasing landscape plan that includes timber and aluminium fences, lawns and boundary plants. The internal layout varies but includes generous storage with the kitchen and living zone downstairs and three bedrooms and bathroom above. One of the homes also includes an additional bedroom-cum-study downstairs. Walls, floors and ceilings are fire rated, with double-framed timber walls for noise control between homes. Holloway Builders is proud of the high standard achieved on these developments, which further boost their track record for excellence. • ALL ASPECTS OF INTERIOR GIB FIXING • RESIDENTIAL • COMMERCIAL • LIGHT COMMERCIAL • SKIMMING (LEVEL 5) • ALL ASPECTS OF INTERIOR PLASTERING (LEVEL 4) • CRACK REPAIR • CORNICE • GIB COVE • STIPPLE Director Ryan Williams | Ph: 022 1240 024 | E: Complete Stockists of: Screws | Dronco Discs | Bolts | Washers | Building Products | Construction Fasteners South Island Wide 0800 652 463 PROUD TO SUPPORT HOLLOWAY BUILDERS For all your building supplies visit us at 550 Johns Road, Christchurch Phone: 0800 191 674 Email: McVICAR
