About Blue Summit Construction
THE CHRISTCHURCH BUILDERS DEDICATED TO CREATING SMILES
We’ve told you what we do and how we do it…This is WHY we do it
Blue Summit Construction started in 2008, when Michael Ingram left his job as a builder to become self employed. He primarily worked for group housing companies throughout Christchurch, whilst steadily growing Blue Summit. After the Canterbury earthquakes in 2011, Blue Summit was managing up to 25 group housing builds at a time - the majority being earthquake rebuilds.
Something which became obvious to Michael and all Blue Summit staff, was that clients coming to the building sites weren’t particularly happy with the group housing build process. For example, it was often very difficult for them to speak with a Project Manager. Eventually many clients just wanted it all to be over… Some even sold their house without moving into it.
Building should be enjoyable
Being a passionate artisan, Michael wanted to set things right. Building your home is a journey - not necessarily an easy one, but you should finish with the desire to do it again. Blue Summit educates, empowers and supports our clients throughout the building process – that’s our Why.
Michael or Miranda will guide you through every step of the building process - from design (if that’s where we start with your project), to product selections, and right through to when Blue Summit gives you the keys to your new home, or your extension is completed.
Feeling involved, loving the result!
Blue Summit builds wonderful houses and extensions, we manage our suppliers and materials well, adhere to legislations and carry out our work to the highest possible industry standards. However, what drives our every decision (our Why), is that our clients love what they are creating, feel involved in the build process and want to do it again at some point in the future.
Capacity & consistency
Blue Summit limits the number of home builds and extensions we have on the go at any one time, meaning you get the best possible service and attention to every detail. We build on-budget and finish on time, every time. And the same the team of Certified Builders will work on your home throughout the entire project - this consistency and knowledge of the build is very important.
