Two separately owned local franchises, Laser Electrical and Laser Plumbing, have come together to create a one stop shop for all electrical and plumbing needs.

SELWYN TIMES Tuesday September 20 2016 37 HOME PROFESSIONALS Seventeen years in the building industry Finding a versatile and experienced builder is not always straightforward, especially one who covers the spectrum, whether a new build, extension, renovation or alteration. Some builders say they will call to quote but either do not show up or never get round to giving a price. With Rolleston based building company, Bowness Built, no job is too big or too small and clients deal directly with the owners, Taryn and Phil Bowness. Phil has over seventeen years’ experience in the industry, gained in the United Kingdom and New Zealand on residential and commercial projects, allowing him to offer a broad building base and high level of skills. While Bowness Built specialise in residential they also take on light commercial work in Selwyn and around mid-Canterbury. This includes entry level homes to high architectural designs, as well as anything in between, whether on the flat or a hill. Recently, they constructed a three bedroom, two bathroom home in Lincoln with quality fixtures and fittings for a budget of $450,000 (including land). “The final product is a good quality, exceptional house. It looks fresh and inviting, comparing well with other options on the market in this price range,” says Taryn. “It shows what can be built at the entry level where the maximum is $550,000 if applying for a Home Start Grant.” At the other end of the spectrum, Bowness Built recently finished an architecturally designed future-proofed home that featured solar panels, a well-insulated MAXRaft slab, wool insulation, PVC double glazed windows, a ducted heat pump system with the solar system set up to use batteries when they are available. As a private builder, Bowness Built offer value for money so clients have the potential to achieve a higher specified, quality home for their money. Clients work closely with Phil and Taryn rather than many individuals which can be the case in a larger organisation. Bowness Built will work with a client’s design or organise a designer, providing a fixed build price which banks require and clients need to avoid overspending. “We will tailor a complete package to the clients’ needs and wants, from the engineering work through to the interior design, offering access to an Interior Designer who can assist with interior and exterior paint colours, curtains, and floor coverings to get a unique home that they will enjoy and be proud of while clients have the option to work with the interior designer for more furnishing ideas, should they wish,” advises Taryn who says that Phil is a perfectionist, building each client’s home like he would his own. Phil is also particular about being onsite during construction, project managing the build with the assistance of Taryn, and contracting a minimum of work to achieve a more efficient build time of four to five months once the floor is down; all with a Master Build guarantee. This takes stress away for clients so they can relax and enjoy the process.
