Case Study 1
1905 Glory Restored
Nick Burns a Hong Kong based Architect has restored his 1905 villa in Remuera to its former glory taking great care to retain the original features and using traditional construction methods.
The house was “completely remodelled both interior and exterior but had to keep with the original design from the era” says Construction Manager Nigel Mandeno. Most of the original timber was recycled to be used on other areas of the house. There were also a number of timber features crafted by carpenters specifically for this house including double sliding windows as no aluminium joinery could be used.
The coatings specified for this project required traditional finishes. On the exterior great care was taken to maintain the circular milling cuts as the exterior coating was stripped back. On the interior a slightly amber tone was desired on the kauri floors therefore Cabots Cabothane was custom tinted to achieve the required appearance.
Over a year after the commencement, the final impact of this house is impressive as it looks just like a new house from 1905, which was exactly what the owner requested and achieved.Attention: Ross Capel

To whom this my concern
I engage with Ross Capel from MTS Property Maintenance Limited for the first time while I was working for Dominion Constructors.
MTS got involved at a critical stage at the Quba Apartments, now known as the Aldina Hotel. We were at a stage where the nominated contractors couldn’t manage the back log of work and MTS managed to help us out.
With the help of MTS we managed to get the project back on track and back onto budget. The estimate work they complete for us was in the region of $90 000.00 + GST and this included painting to walls, ceilings, staircases and structural steel.
They have also been involved with me at my present company Calder Stewart Construction. They have been involved on the following projects, 9 Freight Place (ungraded of fire wall) and Lion Group (new steel canopy).
I can highly recommend there services to anyone who wish to engage with them.
All MTS staff always comes across professional and undertake all work to a high standard.
If you require any further information do not hesitate to give me a call.

As Chairman of the Owners Committee, I wish to convey my thanks and appreciation for the work your company undertook at our complex.
Your team were very professional in their approach, and ensured that the owners and tenants were fully informed of the plan of works so as to cause minimal disruption to the businesses.
The standard of workmanship was excellent and we are very pleased with the finished product.

Case Study 4
Toddlers Turf Childcare Centre Inc.
To whom it may concern
I first contacted MTS Property Services to request a quote.
Ray made prompt contact and came out to meet us and go over our requirements.
We are a busy not for profit, community based childcare centre and I explained we have lots of inquisitive
children around so it would take a bit of time management of both parties to coordinate the work needing to be done.
We also wanted to change the colour of the whole building fr4om a blue to a lighter colour.
Ray was very obliging with all of these requests. I found him to be honest, knowledgeable as well as being able to offer viable suggestions.
I sourced three quotes for the same job and decided to go with MTS for several reasons…..
· Their prompt service
· The communication, we felt informed and part of any decisions that needed to be made
· The price, it was in the middle range, not the cheapest and not the dearest. A fair price I thought at the time.
Now the job has been completed I would class it as an awesome price for the result and the standard of work that has been carried out.
John and his team arrived to do the work. They were all courteous and very obliging. Again the communication was great, attention to
detail was prevalent and time management was well managed.
Overall we were very pleased with the job and are happy to recommend MTS painters as competent professionals.

I would highly recommend MTS Property Services to paint the interior, having had the opportunity to have their expertise,
knowledge and most friendly service on my 3brm 1949 home in Papatoetoe just recently. A special thank you to Justin
and Kevin's Paint Team, Marty the Plasterer and Ross my Team Manager for all their hard professional

Just a quick note of thanks to you and your wonderful team for providing quick, efficient and professional service on the
interior painting of our home here in Titirangi.
We would like to make special mention of John your head painter for his diligence and attention to detail throughout his
time at our residence, along with his very friendly demeanor.
We had no hesitation in using MTS for this job after the very good work they did painting the outside of our home a couple
of years ago, and have passed on your details to our friends and acquaintances.

Everything is looking good. Probably the only job we have ever had done with nothing to complain about.
