Experience To Achieve Your Best Building Project Outcome
We assist by identifying and advising on construction methods, design, and materials that are both practical and Industry Best Practice standards, building to all codes of compliant standards within Health and Safety requirements to achieve the best result you’re looking for while at the same time avoiding future unhappy challenges.

We also work with an excellent team of Engineers, Architects, and Sub trades, with all of us working together to provide a quality outcome, save you both time and money but without compromising on excellence.

Our quotations are usually very close to actual outcome, and these take into account real costs of materials, labour and allow for unforeseen circumstances.

We have been so lucky to have had John Buchan and his team  working on various projects-small and large on our house in Auckland over the last 20 years. The standard of building, the meticulous care over every detail, and a superb finished product has  resulted every time, not always easy in a house nearing its 100th year.

John and his men work  meticulously, always turn up at the arranged  time or advise if something  delays  them. They have become friends ,and it is always a pleasure to work with them.

Stephanie and  John Clark 
John Buchan is a builder who together with wife Wendy, has built a successful construction company from humble beginnings. Today John and Wendy are supported by a skilled team, members of whom have become a virtual extension of their own family. 

We have known John and Wendy for almost 30 years and have used their services repeatedly over this time. Johns meticulous attention detail and component knowledge has always ensured a first rate job.

If you are contemplating a construction project of any sort on the Coromandel Peninsular, we have no hesitation in recommending J.R. & W.T. Buchan Limited to you. You will not be disappointed.

Graham Astley & Keiko Pulin
Our organisation recently had the pleasure of hosting John and his building crew while they extended our deck.
The experience was enjoyable from go to whoa as John kept the communication going, adjusted a busy schedule to fit us in, arrived punctually every day,(despite the weather), worked around other operations on site and stuck to the quoted price.
Our staff are not backward in coming forward, so when they commented enthusiastically on the outstanding politeness of John’s crew, the way they avoided disruption and their conscientious clean up we took that as a sign of serious approval! 
The quality of the build has been much admired since completion and we are very pleased with the result.
We look forward to having John and Wendy’s firm back for the next job and take pleasure in recommending them to other potential clients looking for exceptional trades people.
Brian Saipe, General Manager Maungarei Community Christian  Trust
I have used John Buchan and his team, including his choice of electricians, plumbers etc. to alter and then maintain four houses, over many years.

Some of the work was building and alterations but his real expertise is his skill of using bricks, stone and concrete in any environment, inside or outside.  One of his jobs was landscaping a large property on a slope requiring engineering of steps and paths.  In sixteen years, not one brick moved.

He is a master of fireplaces, building or rebuilding ones that in the past have smoked, and incredibly competent in locating and fixing hard to find leaks. 

I cannot recommend this building/contracting company highly enough, and would be very happy to verify specific work undertaken.
