What our customers say

Awakeri New Residential Home Build, 2022

We highly recommend Matt Heath Builders.  They built our beautiful four bedroom home without a fault.  The workmanship was to a very high standard and communication was very formative from start to finish.  Nga mihi team.

What our customers say

Alfresco Area, 2022

Matt Heath Builders are the best!  After experiencing some ok, and not so OK experiences with previous contractors, Matt Heath has set a new high standard and we couldn’t be happier with his work on our new home.

What our customers say

Earthquake strengthening and renovation of a 1950’s commercial space into a modern letter press printing studio, Commerce Street, Whakatane 2016.

Throughout our complicated projects, we were kept up to date of matters as they developed, and consulted on a daily basis. There are countless hurdles with a renovation build project, and wrangling all the trades that go into the build is a big part of project management. Matt achieved this extremely well and his focus was on making us, the clients, happy.

What our customers say

Build of two new farm pole sheds and alteration and extension of family home, Matawai in 2020.

What a fantastic experience it was as with Matt’s brilliant time management and organisation everything went very smoothly. Great communication the entire process which meant no major issues throughout the build. Matt and his team take pride in their work and it is always up to a perfect standard.

What our customers say

Renovation of old girl guides building to Kawerau Medical Centre & K Town Pharmacy, Islington Street in 2014.

It quickly became apparent Matt would take a lot of the pressure off me in the overall project management. Other trades and supplies arrived on time, he organised the timing, directed and checked their workmanship and the whole job flowed perfectly due to his organisation and tenacity to get the project completed on time. More than a builder, he has proven to be a very competent Project Manager.

What our customers say

Build of a new home in Bunyan Road, Coastlands in 2018.

We enlisted Matt Heath Builders to build our new home in Coastlands. We would definitely recommend Matt and his team for any building work. Our home is everything we hoped for. Matt was easy to talk to if we had any queries about the build and always consulted with us throughout the process. Matt and his team built us a beautiful home and we will definitely be using him again for any of our future building work.
