I am pleased to provide the following commentary. The project was to construct a self-storage facility consisting of 8 sheds and office totalling 5000m2. It is to operate as Storage King Kumeu, a fully managed Storage King business. I appointed The Rodney Group to undertake all site works, building design, consenting and construction, including driveways. Several points stand out:
- They are sticklers for quality. Their prior works have confirmed this to be consistent.
- They recruit quality staff.
- They are very collaborative. At the project design phase The Rodney Group provided creative, cost effective options whilst other suppliers provided stock plans. This approach has continued throughout the site works phase; wherein the unexpected ground factors and storm water engineering items required creative solutions as they unfolded.
- Payment claims have been detailed, very accurate and consistent with quotations.
- Variations around earthworks volumes have been detailed and fairly estimated; as confirmed by my QS.
- Communications and project progress information has been very good.
In summary, an appointment of The Rodney Group should deliver a quality result, competitively priced with a committed business owner providing very good communications throughout.”
