Kotare Station, Marumaru, Hawkes Bay engaged Faulknor Construction to build a four stand woolshed and covered yard complex to be completed in two stages, the woolshed 2010, and the covered yards 2012. After an initial meeting with the owners and Faulknor Construction, a plan was selected which suited our limited site. Faulknor construction took over all aspects of the build this being really important to us as we were absentee owners.
Faulknor Construction provided a comprehensive service from planning, consent application to final compliance. They were extremely efficient, timely, cost competitive and were very professional which resulted in an excellent woolshed complex. Building delays were only weather related, and once the job began, nothing was a problem. The design of the woolshed has proved excellent and the covered yards were attached later seamlessly. The overall construction was well designed and extremely practical, the result of forty odd years of building woolsheds by Faulknor Construction.
Throughout the build Brook Faulknor, the principal of Faulknor Construction was an excellent communicator, very personable, coupled with his professional approach and practical advice, made this project stress free. The complex in our view, is very functional as well as being aesthetically pleasing. Would we build another woolshed complex using Faulknor Construction - absolutely.

Faulknor Construction are to be congratulated on their outstanding service and building skills.
My wife and I contacted Brook mid-October to quote on building us a 20m x 10m 4 bay workshop on our property in Bay View. We had researched the market and had quotes from 4 other shed suppliers.
Brook got back to us within 24hrs and we told him our exact needs. Faulknor's got back to us with a quote that was by far the best, including all the variations we required.
They handled the whole job from permits to the handing us the keys on completion. Site works, Concrete floor, Roofing, Guttering, Remote power Roller doors and access door was all done within 4 weeks of our deposit.
The Workshop is everything we asked for and more, we are extremely pleased with every aspect of the job.
We would highly recommend Faulknor Buildings to anyone requiring a quality Workshop or Farm Shed built. We would be happy for anyone from Faulknor Construction to bring prospective customers out to view their craftsmanship.

Job well done, thanks for starting and completing covered yards at such short notice. It was great to take advantage of the fine weather and get in and get the job done."

"When our wool was starting to get wet on the inside of our shed - we thought that it was time to do something about it. We looked around and got quotes and found Faulknor Construction to be by far the most competitive. We didn't have to take care of any design or any resource/ building consents, this was all done by Faulknor Construction and found Brook and team very efficient. We appreciated being able to work with the Construction team (1 worker and Brook) to reduce the total cost, and found them really easy to work with. From clear site through until the completion and operation of the woolshed was a total of 23 days. All that we were required to do was contact the plumber and electrician."
Cheers, Peter and Ian Rowe, Raetihi.
"Brook just letting you know we had the 1st day shearing on Monday - just awesome! Had over 1200 under cover (and room for another 200) rained all night but no problem. Shearers very happy with it and so are we."
