Tony Pexton of TP Builders Ltd was my builder and project manager for the construction of my “dream home”
He came to me by recommendation of my architect Allan Shanahan. Tony was a great guy to work with. He is a man of high integrity and great warmth. I always had complete confidence in what he was doing for us . Tony’s team were also a credit to him. They were a great bunch of guys who shared Tony’s pride in what they do and treated the job with respect. The building site was always left clean and tidy. They kept friendly relationships with the neighbours which was important in terms of our own settling into our new home.
Our home is a testament to Tony’s skills. People familiar with construction who have visited our home are quick to remark on the quality of the build which not only pleases us but is a credit to Tony.
I have no hesitation in recommending Tony to a prospective client looking to create a high quality home.
When we purchased our dream property located on the cliff top near Devonport on Auckland’s North Shore, the property was in need of a serious renovation to realise its full potential so we began the process of identifying architects and builders who might be able to help us. Our chosen architect came up with a bold and ambitious design that essentially required re-building the house with the exception of a few of the exterior walls. For this job we selected Tony Pexton of TP Builders Limited. Our choice was based largely on word of mouth recommendations and a quick look at some of Tony’s completed projects. As novices in the building process we really were taking a leap of faith and we certainly were not disappointed.
The first stage of the process was to get some idea of what our project was going to cost. Tony and his quantity surveyor produced a very detailed costing which although scary initially allowed us to re-adjust our budget expectations. As the project progressed and we ticked off the various work items we were able to compare the actual cost against the budgeted cost and we were very pleased when the project came in only slightly over budget. As is usual with any renovation project there were additional costs from unexpected items but thankfully there were not too many of these. The other variations from budget were generally due to changes in the specification as the project progressed. The other thing that we really appreciated about Tony’s approach to the project was that he would often come up with ideas to save us money or to modify the designs to improve the finished product, things we would never have thought of ourselves.
Many building projects end up taking much longer than expected but ours finished pretty much on time which was down to Tony’s organisational skills and his excellent team of tradespeople. Tony assumed responsibility early on in the process for project managing the entire job. We have no doubt that this alone contributed immensely to the success of the project and we were often amazed at Tony’s ability to just ‘get things done’.
As for the quality of the finished product, we are very satisfied customers. The project has been a huge success and we now have a fantastic home in a fantastic location. Our home won a Master Builders Gold award for Tony’s work which is testimonial in itself to the build quality but we have since come to appreciate even more the real benefits of Tony’s attention to detail and very high standards in the building process as we enjoy living in the house.
In summary, we have no hesitation in recommending TP Builders to other prospective clients.

I first met Tony Pexton when his company TP Builders Ltd submitted a quote along with other builders to construct our new Alan Shanahan designed home in Devonport.
From the outset and throughout the construction process Tony was very passionate about delivering us a high quality home that included various features desired by and important to us and he was very collaborative and innovative with us as we moved through a process that was familiar to him but new to us. This enabled us to enhance our original spec beyond what we had at first envisaged.
He showed us a number of homes he had previously built and it was nice to be able to access them which in itself was as a result of the owners consideration for Tony’s capabilities.
Obviously, TP Builders Ltd are up amongst New Zealand’s best builders of high spec homes but beyond that we found the most wonderful part of the process was the total honesty we observed and trust they gained from us.
Our new neighbors found Tony’s entire team very friendly and the neighbors have commented to me that they were delighted to be kept informed on up and coming issues as the job progressed.
The building site was well controlled at all times with rubbish continually being promptly moved away and noise kept within acceptable levels.
We are regularly asked ” who was the builder”. We are proud to reply “Tony Pexton” “TP Builders”.

We were very fortunate to have TP Builders construct our new house. From the outset Tony was reliable, honest and very professional.
During the planning phase he offered sensible advise and opened up his extensive portfolio of previous projects for perusal. Despite numerous obstacles, including neighbours at close proximity, shared right-of-way and commencing foundations in the middle of winter on a section too small to “swing a cat”, construction progressed without incident and within budget.
We are delighted with the completed project. He has produced masterpiece that has been admired by many and endorsed by his peers. I would not hesitate to use Tony and his crew again, and would recommend TP Builders to anyone who was wanting a premium builder at reasonable rates.

The project was an extensive renovation with considerable demolition. The complex construction techniques and design, along with ‘mind numbing’ new building codes and compliance issues, needed someone with Tony’s extraordinary patience, calm demeanour and sense of humour. It also needed Tony’s ‘drive’ to make sure things kept on track. The building crew also had similar qualities with a real pride in their work and a sense of getting the job done well. Each day the building site was cleaned up, inside and out, and left safe and tidy.
