Crafting high quality homes is second nature to Geordie Davidson, Director of Coastal Builders and his expert team of tradespeople. What started as a two-man team, over a decade ago, has grown into one of North Shore’s much sought-after builders of luxury homes.
Focusing on the high-end residential market, Geordie doesn’t just want to build a house, he wants to build a home that can be lived in and enjoyed.
“Once you design a home, you want to be able to live in it – so it’s important not to compromise on quality in a build. And that is where we step in - we build homes that last the distance,” says Geordie.
Having started his business from a personal interest in the building industry and refurbishing his own properties, the self-employed builder built up his reputation by completing various projects in Wellington, including two commercial projects and several residential projects. He explains why he moved to Auckland’s North Shore: “Why wouldn’t you? Who doesn’t want to live by the beach!”
He set up Coastal Builders with his business partner and wife Tracy, who, he suggests, is the backbone of the company: “Without her I couldn’t do what I am doing.” Along with a strong and talented pool of tradespeople, they have been successfully building and renovating Shore homes for over 20 years now.
Committed to delivering a high standard of workmanship and quality with a professional ‘can-do’ attitude, Coastal Builders pride themselves on maintaining a close working relationship with their clients, architects, designers and councils to ensure the job gets done smoothly and on time.
“When choosing a builder it is very important that you engage someone who can relate to the vision you have for your new home,” advises Geordie. “With our experience working on luxury homes, both old and new, we will be able to ensure that the end product is a home you can be truly proud of.”
Being able to effectively project manage their highly skilled team of builders and sub-contractors, is also an important factor when considering a renovation.
“Bringing everyone together seamlessly can be a challenge in most renovations and builds,” says Geordie. “But the relationships we have developed in the 20-odd years of building, means we have a good source of sub-contractors and architects and allows us to have the same experienced team on all our projects,” he adds.
Sue and Chris Dickson can provide testament to the quality and professionalism of Coastal Builders, who completed the recent refurbishment of their home.
“Coastal Builders spent nine months refurbishing our house,” says Sue.
“We found Geordie to be knowledgeable and experienced in all aspects of the contract, including managing his team, liaising with councils, architects, interior designers, sub contractors etc., and listening and understanding me; the client.”
“I had heard a lot of stories of stressful building sites,” she added. “And I have to say that ours was not one of them. The job was completed on time with little to no stress. We had a Monday morning meeting every week, where we discussed deadlines, sub contractors and finishings and every thing went smoothly.”
Setting these important high standards and focusing on the needs of their client are paramount to the team at Coastal Builders, who are ready to assist you in creating your dream home.
