He also sees beyond the plans to understand the designers intentions and the owners needs.  We could not have been more delighted with the final outcome. The quality of construction is impeccable.”

Alan and Judy Curnow

“From the time we started dealing with Wayne, Abi and the team at Hard Case everything was easy. We found building our new home a relaxed and accommodating process with an underlying attention to detail and level of professionalism that made us very confident in the end product. As the house was completed we were more than satisfied with the level of workmanship and skill set that Hard Case demonstrated, which along with effective management of the sub trades and efficient record keeping gives us complete confidence in recommending the Hard Case team to anyone looking for a premium quality build”.

Matt & Tania Tuck, Wanaka

“Hardcase recently completed our new house here in Wanaka and I think you’ll go a long way to find a builder easier to work with. Nothing was too much trouble and Wayne ran the job in the calm, organised and efficient way which benefits everyone. Such a pleasure to use a contractor who is totally reliable – when he says something will happen, it happens and drama just doesn’t come into it. We would have no trouble recommending Wayne and Hardcase to anyone looking for a builder in the Wanaka area.”
