  MIKE QUIN
LIEBHERR

Mike Quin's business is picking up. And moving. Shoving, carrying and heavy lifting. The cranes, bulldozers and earthmoving machinery he supplies are used in multitude of applications across the country. He manages Liebherr New Zealand, who service their own products; and that requires a very specialised building. One with a dedicated parts area, workshop and wash bay with triple interceptor, plus attractive, functional offices that wouldn't be affected by noise in the workshop.

Frankham Buildings found a suitable building to rework and used their preferred architect. “The attention to detail and regular contact with all concerned made the development quite painless. Jim really went out of his way to make it work.”

Frankham Buildings took charge of management and construction keeping Mike's involvement to simply communicating what he wanted. “Frankham Buildings is just particularly good at focussing on what the customer wants. And that's critical”.
JAN BAXTER
RENTOKIL TROPICAL PLANTS

Jan Baxter's staff is mobile, tearing around the city in vans servicing tropical plants to office foyers and high-class hotel lobbies. “It's hard out there in the traffic, and it was important that the staff had somewhere to come back to where they could relax … it had to be ‘warm', inviting and comfortable”.

Surrounded by a veritable jungle of orchids and indoor tropicals in her new warehouse, she explains how Frankham Buildings worked alongside her to achieve her goal. “Jim was always involved, facilitating contact with the architect, builder and interior designer to get what we wanted.”

And the Frankham Buildings service continued long after practical completion. “Any problem at any time, I know a solution is just a phone call away ... I phone Jim and it's solved quickly and painlessly”.
NEIL WRIGHT
UNLINK AUTOMATION

As manager of one of the most commercially successful electronic instrumentation suppliers in New Zealand, Neil Wright's business relies on brutal efficiency and clockwork scheduling.

LCD displays, monitoring and measuring equipment bristle with flickering lights behind him as he casts a casual arm across the display, “We needed a building that could show off some of our latest products, but worked well as an office.”

Jim Frankham stepped up and worked alongside Neil to create a tailored office and warehouse building that would specifically respond to Unilink's needs. It was custom built with a generous showroom, and a BBQ area on the deck as a social flourish. “Throughout the entire relationship, Jim was very approachable and professional. We really got what we wanted”.

Neil Wright's new premises were finished on time, on budget and were so impressive that they were the focus of industry attention for weeks.
