Need to know – villa and character home renovations.

Lockhart Construction specialise in quality Wellington home renovations including character villa and bungalow transformations.

Renovating a character home requires specialist skills, attention to detail and craftsmanship to ensure the integrity and character features of the home are retained. 

Our certified builders have decades of experience working on character home projects. We also bring in artisan experts to support the build for specialty areas such as crafting timber work to ensure it is finished to perfection and in keeping with the true character of the home. 

Starting your renovation project with an accurate cost estimate in relation to work to be done and the budget is important, and particularly with alterations to existing and older homes because costs on these builds can grow if not estimated accurately.

Accurate upfront cost estimate 

At Lockhart Construction we have a unique process which gives homeowners an accurate pre-concept renovation estimate. We recommend getting an upfront estimate before drawing up plans and seeking resource consents. 

“This means homeowners go into the project with a realistic estimate for their budget, rather than finding out there will be additions to the plans, and therefore costs, later,” says Lockhart Construction owner Stan Leenders. 

Lockhart Construction has completed many successful villa and bungalow renovations throughout the Wellington region, and we love the challenges that each project brings. We have a team of  selected and specialist sub-trades and experts to support these projects which means you can trust us with your character home renovation project.

“Villa and bungalow renovation projects are very special so it’s important to get every aspect right from the beginning,” says Stan.

Customer care throughout 

Customer care and good communications throughout our projects are at the centre of everything we do. We keep customers updated with weekly reporting and photos of progress on the project using our proven job management system. This gives customers updates on progress with project milestones and deadlines toward delivering the job to time. 

“Renovations are exciting but can be challenging so it is important that we keep our customers informed throughout the build so that they know what is happening, and this helps them to have a good renovation experience. That is very important to us.”
