Don’t just take our word for it


The work undertaken was extremely complex as the house required underpinning and connecting into the retaining wall that was built.  The first hurdle was creating access to the site and Irving Builders had to build a track in before the work could be started. Very pleased with the whole project and how the project was run. Great that the project stayed ahead of schedule and in fact, finished a week early
Alex Eason Christchurch
Thanks for a great job and being willing to work around all our needs. To have a company that can show adaptivity and compassion while on the worksite is truly appreciated… Definitely be recommending !
