I have run a project management and design practice working in the education construction sector in the lower North Island, for the last 25 years. Over that time, we have undertaken supervision of numerous construction and maintenance projects that we have issued for tender.

Recently we let a large complex project to repaint the exterior surfaces of the buildings at Naenae College. The project required the contractor to work through the college campus during the school term time and took a significant amount of planning and co-ordination to work in a safe staged manner around the site. The work required a significant amount of scaffolds, edge protection and the use of EWP’s.
We found Carus to be very reliable, well organised and efficient in their execution of the works and fitted into the school campus very fell. Their management expertise and attention to detail was evident throughout the project, and they delivered the project on time and within budget.
Their communication and the standard of the workmanship was excellent.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Carus as main contractor for future painting related projects.

The painting staff of Carus have been absolutely outstanding in their work at our school. Our community have certainly valued and appreciated the workmanship of John, Kevin, Mike and Shaun and can’t thank them enough for their diligence and fastidious approach to their work. From the moment that they arrived on site they have been very accommodating of our school and times when they have needed to move to accommodate classroom programmes. Nothing was ever to much trouble and we would unreservedly recommend them to our colleagues. Thank you for your support, Carus picked up the ball, when we were staring at the prospect of having to restart from scratch our procurement of a painting company when Higgins closed. Glenn was outstanding in working with us to ensure that we had a company that could complete the work prior to Winter and for this we are extremely thankful.

Best wishes for the remainder of the year, you can be well pleased that the team up here in Tauranga they are certainly ensuring that your brand name is one that is committed to your vision of ‘supporting the future of your property’

“Carus have just completed a full ‘makeover’ wash down and paint job of the ASB Leisure Centre/ASB Stadium and we are absolutely thrilled with the look. They worked round the clock to get the job finished within the timeframes that they stipulated…”

“Carus completed the exterior painting of Wooden Government Building in Wellington over the summer of 2015/16. They completed the painting to a high standard and met the challenges of working around a fully functioning University and tight timeframes well. Both the company management and onsite staff were a pleasure to deal with and the painters took pride in their painting and workmanship. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Carus again.”

“I am happy to endorse Carus to anyone considering to use them. On an administrative side their proposal and pricing is easy and clear to understand with the added bonus of the price being fixed over the life of the contract. On the standard of their work, it is exceptional, our maintenance team were quick to comment that the staff from Carus were the best painters we have had on site. The Carus work has sharpened up the appearance of the older buildings on site.”
