We are pleased we entrusted the rebuild of our house in Red Beach to MRH Ltd. The house was built in the early 70s and added to it in a haphazard way over the years, and so, not surprisingly, a number of unexpected problems arose; however, they were dealt with and the end result is a credit to Murray and his team. Murray is a good communicator and liaises well, not only with the team members but also with architects, sub-contractors, council officials, and, most importantly, with his clients.
We are happy to recommend Murray Harman of M.R. Harman Limited. to you.

Prue and Alan Rattray October 2012
Murray employed a team of fantastic builders, who also have a very high standard. They were respectful of our home and our privacy. Re cladding a home while living in it with two children over the winter period, certainly had its trying times.
Throughout the project, Murray provided us with breakdown costs, so we were able to know exactly financially what this was costing us. He was very open to discussions if there were any queries concerns on any of the invoicing.
Murray also has great reputation with all trades people that he needed to use, whether it was the electrician, plumber, painter, gib stopper or the council. Because of this, we were able to trust him in every aspect of getting our home up to Code of Compliance Standard – which we have.
We are extremely pleased with the final results and would highly recommend Murray from M.R Harman Ltd to anyone building or renovating their home.

C V for M.R.Harman Ltd. Builders.

My name is Murray Harman, and I am the Owner/Director of M.R. Harman Limited. Builders.I served my time with a group housing company, BMA Construction that later became Prestige Homes Ltd., I completed this in April 1978. (According to my Certificate of Completion of Apprenticeship)

Once out of my time I worked as a labour only contractor. I spent approximately 6.5 years on light commercial work learning the techniques used in this section of the industry. Following this I worked as a sole trader for 3.5 years and in 1988, when I registered my company, M.R. Harman Ltd. Builders.

In December 2008 we celebrated 20 years of business for this company.

M.R.Harman Ltd. Builders core business is additions, alterations, renovations and the occasional new home. The work we do is mainly in the domestic market. This type of renovation and alteration work took on a new direction with the advent of leaky buildings and as a natural transition we have become involved in the repairs and reconstruction of leaky homes and recladding.

M.R. Harman Ltd. can organise the designing or work from the clients plans and will do everything through to landscaping. We will work on a full contract, labour only or hourly rate, whatever the client prefers we endeavour to make happen.

Our staff fluctuates between five and six carpenters with myself doing the project management, etc. Combined we have many years of experience in many facets of the building industry. This gives us and our clients a wealth of knowledge to call upon during the projects we are involved in.

I am a registered personal member, and M.R.Harman Ltd. is a registered business member of Certified Builders Association of New Zealand (CBANZ).

M.R.Harman Limited has an active website www.mr-harmanltdbuilders.co.nz that can be viewed at any time. This site showcases some of the projects we have been involved in with before and after photos.

I designed the company logo to not only be our logo, but also a statement of the company’s work ethics. As per below it depicts a hand holding a house with the inscription “Built by the Hand of Tradesmen” which I always endeavour to enforce.

If I can be of any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me on either of the numbers or email below.
