THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE
FOR EXPERIENCE

Since 1985 Latham Construction has been delivering large commercial buildings and superbly built homes for organisations and private clients. The challenge, as always, is to balance the twin priorities of quality and cost-effectiveness. To ensure we get the balance right, we have built a core team with the proven ability to organise, plan and resource large projects. Complementing this team is a circle of consultants, sub-contractors and suppliers with excellent credentials in their fields of expertise.

Perhaps you have a site and plans, and just need a partner to bring them to fruition. Alternatively, you might be looking to develop a Design & Build concept from scratch in order to meet your future business requirements. Get in touch today and find out how Latham Construction can build your future.

If you have acquired a site, created a concept design and developed detailed plans, Latham Construction can take on the task and complete it to your satisfaction.

Project management is one of our core competencies. Unlike some construction companies, we don’t employ external project managers to work on our clients’ jobs. Working this way can lead to a degree of detachment from the end result, when what you need is commitment. Instead, the senior team at Latham will be with you from preliminary discussions through to the final handover.

Our project management expertise includes preliminary project design and budgeting, procuring all necessary approvals, construction programming, site management, contract administration and financial control. With strong relationships that have been built up over many years, we will put together a qualified team of subcontractors and consultants to ensure everything is delivered to the highest standards.

Latham has partnered with many commercial and public sector organisations on a design and build basis. We have the capability to start with a list of your requirements and deliver a complete solution.

You may have a parcel of land and be looking for proposals to maximise its economic return. Or perhaps your enterprise has outgrown its current premises, and would be better served by a custom-built replacement. Latham can assist with finding the right property, scoping requirements, briefing architects and shepherding consents through the local council. The last stage in the process is the actual construction, which will be delivered by Latham’s in-house team working with qualified subcontractors and consultants. We operate on a fully transparent basis and obtain three quotes for every aspect of construction.

With Latham Construction’s comprehensive design and build capability you’ll receive a building that’s optimised for your organisation. You won’t have to bury yourself in the time-consuming details of project management. Instead you can focus on running your business, and make us accountable for delivering the building you want – on time and on budget.

When you ask Latham Construction to tender for your commercial or residential project, you can be assured of two things. We will be very thorough in our approach – and we’ll deliver a building you can be proud of.

We operate under the motto of ‘No Surprises.’ A meticulous approach to quantity surveying will inform our bid, along with a detailed plan to deliver the project. Communication is central to every stage. With a senior team of core staff committed to your project, you’ll find we’re very approachable and ready to solve any issues that arise. Our experienced team of project managers, designers and engineers will be on hand to ensure you achieve a sustainable and affordable result.

Latham Construction has decades of experience in all types of construction, from private homes to large retail and industrial sites. With proven expertise in site management, scheduling, contract administration and subcontractor selection, we have what it takes to turn your blueprints into a built reality.

HEALTH AND SAFETY

Health and Safety on site is something Latham Construction takes very seriously. Through training and auditing we aim to ensure a safe environment for all of our staff and the public.

To help achieve this, Latham Construction is a registered Site Safe member with training given to all staff. We also employ dedicated H&S professionals to work with us in administration of protocols, auditing and reporting.

We work closely with Worksafe NZ and environmental consultants to ensure we are current with all regulations and safety control measures. We believe each project has its own unique requirements when it comes to health and safety, so we implement site-specific safety plans to counter the needs and risks associated.
