Capability Statement for Wellington Building Services

Overview

Wellington Building Services Ltd (WBS) is a building and maintenance firm servicing the residential market in and around Wellington, including the Hutt Valley, Porirua and Kapiti. WBS employs qualified and licensed builders, painters, plasterers, and other qualified trades people to provide a coordinated, in-house maintenance and building solution. For larger and more complex building projects, WBS has in-house professionals such as project managers, a quantity surveyor, and administration staff to manage every project to successful completion. WBS also has a wide range of specialist sub-contractors whom we regularly use as part of a comprehensive service offering.

WBS specialises in residential property maintenance and repairs, concentrating on leaky buildings, exterior cladding replacement, roof repair/replacement, property renewals, bathroom/kitchen re-fits and interior upgrades. By maintaining a staff mix of tradespeople such as builders, painters and plasterers, WBS provides a fully-managed service offering by coordinating all aspects of the project from concept to completion or as required – our tagline is ‘one company, one solution’. This company structure also provides benefits in terms of cost control, price and flexibility.

Increasingly, WBS is requested to provide a ‘full-service’ identification, remediation and project management service for remediation work and other associated work. This often involves site surveys, investigations and reporting, financial planning and engagement of specialist consultant services, such as Architect, Engineer and Building Surveyors.

This is a strategic move in response to market changes to a coordinated ‘one company one solution’ service model focussed on adding value to our customers.
Many staff members have been long-term employees of the firm and the firm has received a number of building excellence awards during this time.
