I am happy to write this reference for the company Elite Building Compliance Limited. We have enjoyed a working relationship with this company and their principal, Mr Don Harris, for over twelve years. Don was originally involved in helping us with the installation of fume cabinets, and then for the last six years, in performing a testing and certification function for those cabinets.
Approximately three months ago, when we purchased our building, we decided to transfer all of the building compliance management to Don’s company, and this has been a successful and enjoyable business relationship.
When asked to write this testimonial, I sought the opinions of my building services person, who reported back to me that “they have been very informative in keeping us up to date with any actions required and visits, and they have carried out their checks on a regular basis without any intrusion upon our staff or work space. Over all I have found them great and have had nothing to complain about.
Our experiences with Elite Building Compliance have been only positive, and I have no hesitation in recommending their services to other building owners.
Carter Holt Harvey
For a period of 12 years Mr. Don Harris has been contracted by Carter Holt Harvey to assist various businesses within our organization to achieve legislative requirements in relation to our building compliance obligations.
To this end Mr. Harris has demonstrated his considerable experience in assisting and advising a number of our Wood Products New Zealand businesses on key compliance and legislative issues ensuring satisfactory outcomes to all parties concerned.
Elite Building Compliance effectively and efficiently executes the required monthly owner inspections while working closely with us to highlight areas of concern. EBC also undertake all annual inspections in relation to passive features, they obtain annual reports from our other contractors and issue the building warrant of fitness; this is all completed in accordance with the Building Act. In addition EBC also act as a consultant where independent reviews and reports are required.
Mr. Harris is an approachable and reliable individual who has always made himself available to provide advice and guidance when required. I have no hesitation in recommending Elite Building Compliance for work of this nature.
Anglesea Medical Properties
It is my pleasure to tender this testimonial in favour of Elite Building Compliance Ltd who have provided the building compliance services for Anglesea Medical Properties Ltd over the last ten years.
Anglesea Medical Properties Ltd are the owners of the Anglesea Clinic complex and the Knox Clinic complex comprising some 19000m2 of combined tenancy space, tenanted to approx 45 tenants providing largely medically focused and allied services for the greater Waikato Region.
Over the last five years, the Anglesea Clinic Complex in particular, has undergone a major extension program which was recently completed. Due to the medical nature of some of the tenants the building compliance issue have been at times challenging and required a great deal of commitment and communication skills by Elite Building Compliance Ltd.
I am pleased to advise that we have been very pleased by the performance of this company under the leadership of Mr. Don Harris.
We have no hesitation in recommending this company to any prospective client looking for a high quality delivery of building compliance services.
St Peter’s School
Elite Building Compliance have been working for St Peter’s School for over 5 years.
During this time EBC have brought a sense of value and professionalism to both the Building Warrant of Fitness requirements and our evacuation obligations. Both of these areas are managed effectively and efficiently with minimal fuss and inconvenience to any of the teaching and administration staff.
EBC have built trusting relationships with all staff members throughout the school and they continue to educate both students and staff alike in relation to their obligations.
St Peters School regularly leases out areas of the school and it is imperative that we maintain our standards in all areas. EBC have been given the authority to help to ensure that we maintain these standards and are constantly active in their role, ensuring signage is replaced when missing or damaged and that any other potential health & safety or compliance issues are brought to my attention.
Our evacuation process is managed by EBC. Trials are carried out each term for both day time use and evenings where we have boarders. EBC ensure that all staff are familiar with the requirements of the scheme, running effective training programmes when required.
EBC continue to provide an excellent service for which we are extremely grateful. We believe that this valuable, professional service comes at a very competitive price and would not hesitate to support them for similar areas of works.
Elite Building Compliance is RPM’s highly valued building compliance partner for our commercial sites in Hamilton, the North Shore and Whangarei.
Mike takes care of all our compliance issues from monthly owner inspections to annual audits and site inspections and also the fire evacuation scheme management. I am impressed with Elite’s robust systems and high compliance standards, and ultimately feel enormously reassured by their commitment, reliability of service and level of professionalism.
Mike’s project management experience and practical building ‘know-how’ is a tremendous bonus to RPM.
We also appreciate the additional over and above reporting processes they have in place on a monthly and annual basis. These reports give us simple yet very effective snapshots of each buildings compliance status. They also highlight any faults and recommendations.
EBC’s commitment allows us to concentrate on our core business with the peace of mind that our compliance obligations are being managed effectively.
We have no reservations in recommending EBC for the compliance management for any future clients who are seeking a cost effective, professional service.
PAE New Zealand
Don Harris has worked with PAE for the past 10 years on the Huntly Power Station site. Over this period, Don has worked collaboratively with us to deliver our requirements in relation to the Building Warrant of Fitness
Don’s experience and extensive knowledge of the compliance industry in this heavy industrial arena has assisted us to ensure compliance with Building Act and other relevant legislation in relation to emergency lights, back flow prevention, fume cupboards, means of escape, signage, access and facilities and safety barriers.
Every year, Don and his team have audited our compliance manual to ensure that our other specialist contractors have recorded their inspections correctly and executed their obligations in line with the building act.
Elite Building Compliance has also effectively managed the annual attainment of all annual reports from the various sub-contractors associated with this site. They audit these reports to ensure full compliance and use these reports in conjunction with their own to support and submit the relevant documentation to the local authority in a professional and timely fashion.
Don is an approachable individual and has always made himself available to give advice and guidance when required.
I would not hesitate to recommend Elite Building Compliance for similar works.
