What our clients say

I went down to Wellington for the opening of our Archive room. It was overwhelming to see the project realised.
The achievement is a testament to all involved.
This is a very loud thank you for taking our unique idea, and getting it built! And so beautifully.
A special thank you to Timberlab and Greenmount for being there from the beginning – with all the goodwill and advice that allowed us to take the first steps towards resolution.

This one was definitely a team effort!!

Lisa Webb, Studio Pacific

Our drawings were sent off to TimberLab, who put together a model, including every single piece of timber, so that they could check it – then we double-checked. There were about 500 pages of shop drawings for the project, including these incredible schedules that were like a computer language. If the model was slightly wrong, it would have created havoc on site, but we managed to avoid that completely.

The tolerance was plus or minus half a millimetre, which is kind of loony – half a millimetre on timber that’s 12m long. The building was actually sized to the biggest bits of LVL that you can buy. In order to be rigid, all of the joints had to slot together perfectly and TimberLab – bless them – managed to do it. The team on site were real craftsmen, too

NZ Strong successfully engaged Timberlab on 2 of our recent award winning projects, namely Avondale College Stage 3 and Otahuhu Recreation Precinct. On both projects Grant and the Timberlab team were extremely professional in their approach and advice and were proactive throughout the whole process.

Both projects had numerous tricky routing and other preparation for steel connections, which they produced with the very high degree of quality required in line with the tight tolerances involved
