Our names are Michael and Nicola Bates. We first met Jason Burgess, when we were pricing our renovation.
We have a large three storey home by the beach & the work was going to be extensive, so for this reason we decided to engage several builders to quote the work. After various meetings we decided to go with Burgess Construction, there were several reasons for this.
Firstly Jason came across as being fresh and innovated. We were going to be using some fairly new products in New Zealand and wanted somebody willing to embrace new things, as well as the traditional methods like weather boarding. Jason was not only willing to blend the both, but also keen to do so.
During the build Jason was very easy to work with. We were very particular on how we wanted things to look, sometimes changing our minds as we went along! Jason however was extremely approachable, and always fulfilled our requests to make sure it was exactly how we wanted. We had our dream and he did his upmost to make it happen.
His team when Jason was not on site, were also very approachable as well as being professional, hard working and conscientious. Every detail was done just the way we wanted.
We could not of asked for a better builder, and would happily put our name forward to recommend Burgess Construction. He definitely goes that extra mile to make sure, that as a client you are 100% happy.
We would also welcome anybody that wanted to view his work, to come see our amazing home!
We built a family home in 2015 employing Jason as our builder. Our house is 340sqm and is in Te Puna. It is based on a contemporary modern build. The build started early June, and was completed in mid-November.
We chose Jason as our builder initially due to his high reputation in Tauranga, and the transparency of the process, with all invoices presented and detailed to us online.
However, it soon became apparent that the real strength that Jason has is his eye to detail, design, and communication.
Although our home was designed by an architect, there were a few design decisions to be made, and Jason had a natural flair for this, making fantastic decisions that we are still happy with.
Communication was done weekly or more often via email, text, and phone, keeping us in the loop at all times.
Jason sets the bar very high when it comes to standards, and personally inspected all work done by sub-contractors. If he wasn’t satisfied with the quality of the work, then he would make sure the work was corrected.
The builders that he employs are of the highest standard, and a credit to his business.
We have had no issues with the build that Jason did for us, and would highly recommend him for any future building projects.
We are happy for anyone considering employing Burgess Construction to contact us, and even to view our home that Jason built.
We engaged Burgess Construction to carry out an extensive renovation of our beach front home in Mt Maunganui. The project involved essentially re-building a 1990s vintage 270sqm house; totally reconfiguring the inside, major alterations to the exterior and fully re-plumbing & wiring.
The site had difficult access, limited space for materials laydown and an extremely zealous inspection schedule from the Council.
Burgess Construction provided a full build contract which included management of sub-trades and liaison with our architect and engineer.
The work was carried out on time, to budget and to a high standard. The sub-trades were managed well and Jason was able to resolve issues promptly as they arose either through his own initiative or by working with our architect.
Prior to the build starting Jason was able to review our final plans and offered valuable input into improving the constructability of some of the detailing and was able to provide a realistic programme.
Our build was carried out to a high specification.
We have found Jason to be honest and reliable. Our project was done on an open book basis and this was managed in an open and transparent manor.
From the beginning we have been able to completely trust Jason. He is also easy to get along with, helpful, able to anticipate our needs and respectful of our property. He was recommended to us by other previous customers both of whom had similar positive experiences. I would not hesitate to recommend Burgess Construction.

We renovated our home in 2014/15. It is a three level home in Oceanbeach Road and we did extensive renovations including a small extension, recladding, and reconfiguration of the ground floor.
We were Jason’s first clients when he set up his business Burgess Construction Ltd. He was highly recommended by Miles Everton of Everton Construction Ltd. We immediately found Jason to be very professional and personable. Jason had also worked with our Architect Designer, Gary Gardener, and Gary was very supportive of having Jason as our builder.
Jason approach is professional and business like. He is also a very skilled tradesperson and is highly respected by his team and the sub-contractors he employs. There was always a feeling of camaraderie around the house and we found Jason and his team very easy to have around. Jason is a good communicator and listener and always talked through any issues honestly and took on board our concerns. He gives constructive suggestions, good advice and has a good feel for design.
The renovations were executed to a high level of quality and have received many positive comments from other tradespeople and visitors to our home. We enjoyed working with Jason and would definitely work with him again in the future.
