Expectations exceeded
Managing a building project from the other side of the world (Luxembourg) was made very easy by HAMR. Having acquired the section on Aquila Drive from a good friend we were always intending on building the house to serve the joint purpose of rental investment and long-term personal use (when we eventually bring the family back to gods own). Once Richard understood this joint objectives he was very helpful in designing an appropriate plan. The design was elegant yet practical and it has, with the passage of time, proved to be a winner with offering 5 bedrooms, 2 living areas (to make best use of the views and sun’s trajectory) to the tourist/beach holiday demand that is undersupplied in Whitianga. The demand for the house (via Bachcare) has well exceeded expectation.

HAMR managed the entire process from design, planning application, the build and all decorating, furnishing and fitting out ready to rent. The budget was sensible and was achieved (also within projected time frames).

It was very helpful to have Hannah take care of all the furnishing, fittings and outside areas. The end result was a house ready to be rented out to the tourist and beach holiday people in November 2017. Hannah and Richard have continued to provide help and support when needed since then with managing the few maintenance items (always get a few items with a house this big and being rented), gardens and house washing.

We only get positive feedback on the quality of the house and its layout from those who enjoy staying there. It was 18mths before I got to see the finished result and was very impressed with the place…..I am contemplating another similar project in the coming years and will definitely use HAMR.

I am very happy to provide a reference for HAMR and happy to have discussion with a potential user of HAMR services (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

A Natural Choice
We were so lucky to work with HAMR Home on our first home! HAMR Home were brilliant to work with; we had such a smooth process from start to finish. We already had established a working history with Richard and Hannah, and HAMR Homes; they had built some of our designs through our architecture business. Even a showhome for HAMR Homes, which was beautiful and a true representation of the quality building that we went on to receive. So it was a natural choice to use them for our own home.

From the beginning of the contract they were very professional and thorough. We made a couple of amendments during the construction, typical, but still, a bit of a curve ball…! However, Richard received the news with a positive manner. Never making us feel like it was a hassle at all. Quite the opposite, he was so accommodating and ready to move forward with those amendments. The completed project was properly completed, with Code of Compliance achieved prior to handover. We were so impressed with our new home, which we have now lived in for two years. The house has seen a few seasons now, including a few storms, it’s so sturdy and strong. It still looks as beautiful as the day we moved in, even better with time as our gardens are now complimenting the house. Our house was entered into Master Builders House of The Year 2018, this was such a fabulous experience for us and even better when it won a gold for it’s category!! Definitely an endorsement of the amazing workmanship that we received from HAMR Home for our house.

The HAMR Home team is a great group of builders. They are switched on; absolutely committed to each project and using their skills and craftsmanship to set their finished homes in a league of their own. Hannah and Richard are good, honest people. They are both great at communicating, and we felt so confidant that all would go well from the beginning, and it certainly did. We now call Richard and Hannah our friends, which is a huge accolade considering some horror stories you hear of client/builder relationships! Our friendship is a testimony to their characters and how well the process went for us. We recommend HAMR Home to anyone wanting a seamless construction process and a beautiful, well constructed building at completion.

Workmanship To A Very High Standard
We have found Richard and Hannah from HAMR Home very helpful all the way through our building process.  Richard's quotes were very detailed and we could see where the extra options were.  Richard had some very good ideas along the way which we could consider.  Richard and his staff's workmanship are to a very high standard and we are very happy with the detail and finish.  Hannah was very prompt with the paper work and both always responded promptly to queries.  We would be very happy to recommend HAMR Home to any prospective clients.

Attentive To Our Requirments & changes & Was Professional In Every Respect
We sought quotations from construction firms in Whitianga, to build an Architecturally designed single level home of circa 310m2, canalside in the Whitianga waterways.  Richard and Hannah Warwick presented the most detailed / descriptive and cost effective proposals to construct the home, on a "full contract" basis, struck up a business relationship with Dan O'Connor our Architect at an early stage and both interpreted and enhanced the designs in a creative and helpful manner.  

We have a home that we are fully satisfied with and Richard and Hannah and their very competent sub trades in drainage / plumbing, interior fittings, electrical, concreting, have all done a job that they can rightfully be proud of.  The home came in at around their budgeted price to us and at all times Richard was attentive to our requirments and changes and was professional in every respect.  We are pleased to recommend HAMR Home to anyone looking for a home which exudes quality in construction in every respect and whose Principals are engaging and passionate about what they do.

Project Completed On Time Without Any Surprises
It is with much pleasure I write this testimonial. Our initial plan was to purchase rather than build as we, are aware of so many “hair raising” stories some have experienced when building. Plan A was shelved and we went for Plan B and decided to build and selected Richard Warwick/HAMR Homes. 

Richards passion and commitment for building was very evident throughout. He is extremely particular in every detail, is well organised, innovative, courteous and is a very good, communicator and is thoroughly trustworthy. Nothing was ever a problem. Importantly we found Richard has a good working relationship with his sub-contractors. 

We are extremely pleased with the quality of workmanship Richard and his team produced -as evidenced by the many favourable comments we have received. The project was completed on time without any surprises and without a cross word. At completion, a Code of Compliance Certificate was issued without any requisitions. Richards wife, Hannah supplied the blinds, who also did a very professional job, and again we were delighted with the result. The project has been a very enjoyable experience. We have no hesitation in recommending Richard Warwick/HAMR Homes to any prospective customer requiring a quality job, and would be happy to discuss further if requested.

Our Dream Is Now Reality & We Love It
NEW HOME - CENTENNIAL DRIVE Dear Rich and Hannah, Wow, what can we say, how fantastic that our house has taken both awards at the Master Builders House of the Year 2014, both the Regional and the National. We just want to say how appreciative we are of the effort you put into building us such a beautiful home and for making the whole building process such an enjoyable experience. You took ownership and your enthusiasm from the time you received our plans, to the day you handed over the keys never faltered. 

Your input into ways to build our home within our budget, without compromising the quality of the build was really appreciated. The fact that we did not live in Whitianga was never an issue. You kept us well informed on all facets of the build, and finished our home within the allocated time frame. To carry on running our business in Rotorua with only 4-6 weekly site visits was an added bonus. To your team, Neil, Dan and Karl and all your subcontractors that built us our home, our dream is now reality and we love it, thank you all so much for a job well done.

Shirley and Allan Springer
