46 | Keeping it local a recipe for success T T Karen Phelps Glen Armstrong Builders is the approved builder for the Waikato and Coromandel for Bunnings Clever Living Homes. Matamata Piako - Glen Armstrong Builders REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT B eing local makes a huge difference to customers who choose to build with Te Aroha-based company Glen Armstrong Builders. Not only do Glen and wife Gina know the area intimately, Glen is also on the tools on each job, project managing and keeping a close eye on quality control. The Armstrongs also like to support other local businesses and use all local trades- people, a trusted team that works with the company on every project. “There are a lot of advantages to dealing directly with a local builder and our small overheads and skilled team can make a big impact on the cost of a new home,” says Gina. Glen started building from a young age, learning the trade from some of New Zea- land’s top building companies. He now brings nearly two decades of building experience to his clients’ projects and it was in 2015 that he started Glen Armstrong Builders. Since then the company has grown rapidly. It now employs a team of five builders and has multiple projects on the go working in the Waikato and Coromandel regions. It will also undertake projects further afield if required. At present the company has builds under- way in Cambridge, Hamilton, Tauranga and Waihi Beach giving an idea of the breadth of locations. Glen Armstrong Builders works on both new homes and renovation projects. Gina says renovations have become very popular since lockdown as people realised their home may not quite suit their needs and have sought to make it more comfortable. With regards to new builds Glen Armstrong Builders is the approved builder for the Waika- to and Coromandel for Bunnings Clever Living Homes. The Clever Living Co. Series are affordable houses and the homes can be built off-site then transported to a location of choice. Alternatively, people can have the building materials delivered as a package and built on-site. Gina says the plans offer compact designs to suit difficult site conditions up to larger family homes. “We offer the complete package from design and construction, right through to the finishing touches. “People can choose two bedrooms or go as large as a four bedroom home, depending on their requirements. The plans are fully quantity surveyed so people know the cost of materials up front. This means people can be confident with a fixed price for building materials to finish a complete home,” she says. Glen Armstrong Builders also has its own suite of ten pre-designed plans. People can use these as a starting point for their own home. “We offer the complete package from design and construction, right through to the finishing touches. People can choose two bedrooms or go as large as a four bedroom home, depending on their requirements.” “Of course people can also go for a full de- sign and build option or bring their own plans for Glen Armstrong Builders to price. Gina says that no matter what the project Glen Armstrong Builders focuses on building high quality homes that are tailored to all budgets.
