“From the outset, this company became the front runner in prospective PM providers. This was largely due to the quality and innovation of the product they offered, but also through their knowledge of the education market and processes Duly appointed as Project Managers, Griffiths & Assoc went on to impress not only through their professionalism and work ethic but more importantly through the ‘quality of relationship’ they developed with our school ensuring exceptional communication at all levels of our project”
“We have been kept fully informed of developments and prodded for decisions required, at all times, and been provided with a clear paper trail recording all meeting minutes and other processes. We have been provided with an excellent service by immediate response to any of our queries by email or phone.
“We found Griffiths & Associates to have the practical and realistic skills to bring good savings to the table. The project was not an easy one as it involved a new build of 58 rooms and a total refurbishment of another 38 rooms. As Trevor was involved with this project right from the start, we found the process to be seamless and the project came in on time and budget to the agreed standard.
“We undertook a major project building a multi-purpose building with four offices attached. During the planning of this project some challenges arose that were beyond our control. Both Trevor Griffiths and Heather Tomason worked through these challenges to ensure a positive outcome for us. The building is well constructed and will be a great asset to the school for generations to come.
“Of particular note to us were the following: The collaborative relationships they built among the groups involved on the project. The speedy response in addressing any alterations to plans or on site. The keeping of all parties on track through minutes of meetings being clear and sent out immediately after the event. The fact that as school governors and managers, we had all the work and worries for the project taken care of. The end result has been the completion of our library on time, under budget and which we are very proud of. The children love it too! We will use Griffiths & Associates on future projects.

The journey for roll growth started at Hora Hora School with approval to increase the asset base for a roll growth programme in June 2014. The site whilst reasonably large is land locked by a central court that is geotechnically challenged, so outside thinking and lots of neighbourly help allowed an external off site access road over 350m formed to the south.
Maungakaramea School Multipurpose room was built to be a multi-use facility and accommodates the library and is used for a variety of school events. It is strategically located to be easily accessible to all classrooms with an exceptional landscaped covered area for students right outside the entrance.
