  • Amazing very professional team.
    We have recently completed two executive residences in Whitianga and used Ohlson and Whitelaw to carry out the construction .
    We found Craig and his team extremely professional with an amazing attention to detail.
    Craig and Kelly came up with many suggestions to enhance the properties and went out of their way to incorporate changes throughout the construction phase.
    The finished outcome has exceeded our expectations. We are so delighted with their work, they are building two more houses for us.
    I would have no hesitation in providing a verbal reference or allowing prospective clients to view the workmanship in our houses.

    From: Scott Thomson,

  • Craig Ohlson of Ohlson & Whitelaw constructed a house for us. Right from the start we found Craig to be very professional and knowledgeable in the building process.
    As a result of using Ohlson & Whitelaw we have an extremely well-built home with quality workmanship, which is clear to see. We couldn’t be happier.
    Craig always ensured we were well-informed and was always very approachable with any questions we had.
    We feel we have an exceptional home built to the highest possible standard and would not hesitate in recommending Ohlson & Whitelaw Ltd for future developments.

    From: D & D Cockburn,

  • I am pleased to offer this reference for Ohlson & Whitelaw Builders. I employed them for my house renovation.
    The work involved stripping the exterior cladding, demolition of part of the building. The house has been added on, with new decks, roof, lounge, windows, interior and exterior claddings and linings, bathrooms and kitchen alterations.
    The work was very involved and a lot of thought had to be put in by the builders, as the designer had given limited detail.
    Craig and his team proved to be very professional. Their workmanship is to a very high standard. They worked with me and my partner to make everything run smoothly and offered good constructive ideas along the way.
    The comments we have had from many, many people is amazing. The house is now a total transformation and people don’t believe it is the same house.
    I would not hesitate to use these guys again any time in the future. Any prospective client is welcome to view my house, their workmanship in my house, or feel free to contact me.
