The best endorsement for this South Wairarapa-based building rm comes from the clients themselves. "We often get comments from the client saying- Even though you re busy and you ve got other work on- we had your total attention at all times and I think that is very important in this day and age," says Tony. As the Lockwood franchise agents for Wairarapa, Tony Wilkinson Builders is able to o er a fabulous range of designs for high quality homes. Lockwood has become synonymous with strength and style over the years. They are so strong in fact, that an audit of over 130 Lockwood homes in Christchurch after the quake revealed virtually nil damage to the homes at all. "Out of the Lockwood builds- one broken mirror and one cracked window- a pretty good batting average, I would have thought," says Tony. With their patented locking panels with aluminium pro les Lockwood s strength is legendary. Lockwood builds constitute around half of their workload, while privately designed residential projects occupy the remainder of their time. A highlight for Wilkinson Builders is that one of their recent Lockwood Eco Houses will be featuring in Homestyle magazine later this year; such is the quality and innovative design of many of their homes. Despite the recession and the number of new dwelling building consents at record lows across the country, Tony Wilkinson Builders, continues to be busy building homes all over Wairarapa, but they are also more than happy to undertake top quality renovation and refurbishment work. "There s always work for good builders- that s something I always sustain," says Tony.
