Quality is everything for Structured

Quality is everything for Structured
Structured is a full service building company, which can offer project management from start to finish.

It’s all about quality not quantity for Auckland based residential building company Structured. “We aren’t interested in churning out lots of houses. We’d rather take on a year long project with intricate design and work closely with the client get the right result. We focus on one job and give it our full attention so that the client gets the best possible service,” says owner Colin Walsh.
Hailing originally from Luton, England, Colin is a Licensed Building Practitioner with over 15 years experience in the building industry.
He started his apprenticeship in New Zealand and worked on a variety of architecturally designed homes all over Auckland.
He also has experience working in London where he oversaw several large scale building projects including central London basement dig outs and the redevelopment of a North London church into a family home, not to mention a celebrity refurbishment or two including for Noel Gallagher from Oasis.
Heading back to New Zealand to start a family he started Structured in 2014 and focuses exclusively on high-end residential projects – new builds and renovations.
Colin says that quality is a real focus: “I was trained by a well-respected builder with high standards. That’s fl owed on to me and I expect the same from my team.
I’m on site all day every day ensuring quality levels remain high at all stages of the project,” he says. Colin works with a trusted team who likewise value quality workmanship, honesty and reliability.

Colin says this allows his clients to be as involved in their project as little or as much as they like. Colin says he is always happy to put forward ideas and suggestions to help bring the client’s plans to life.
Past projects include a significant renovation of a home in Point Chevalier which saw the Structured team move the home on the site, complete foundation work, reclad the home and replace windows, extend the home at front and rear to transform it from two bedrooms into a four bedroom, two bathroom home.
Structured, in a joint venture with a mate’s building company Little Bay Construction, took on the renovation of a 1900s villa in Freemans Bay. An additional level was added to the home and the bottom level reconfi gured.
Colin says that by teaming up occasionally on projects such as this, together they can offer the client even more expertise and value. At present Structured is working on a new build in Greenlane. The five bedroom three bathroom home totals over 300sqm.

The suburb often presents challenges in terms of volcanic rock and this site was no different which saw the Structured team dig down into the rock before work could begin.
Designed by architects Buildology Architectural Design, the home will be clad in weatherboard and include a swimming pool and covered outdoor area with fireplace. “We work on trust,” explains Colin.
“Everything is open and honest. “We have an open book policy with regards to costs and this means that if one part of the build ends up costing a bit less than expected then that money can be directed to other areas.
“We work with the client and their budget to make sure they get the most out of using Structured for their project. Clear communication makes a job successful. It’s about understanding what they want and delivering their dream home.”
He says he aims to keep Structured a niche building company and has no ideas about growing too big. “Keeping small means I can keep a good eye on what we’re doing and keep standards high.
“Because if you get too big you can lose track of quality and our aim is to always deliver the highest quality job possible.”
