James is professional, ensures his sites run smoothly, and that high quality workmanship shines through. Delivers what he promises. He got the quote done for our plans in record time - seting realistic timeframes and offering solutions we didn't even consider. Would highly recommend you go with him for your building and renovation needs.
Have worked with James and the boys at JMC for 15yrs James is a skilled builder that goes that extra mile to deliver a quality finish. Highly recommend!

Having never built a home before, we went into the process a little bit apprehensive, but we did our research and decided to go with JMC Build. The build process was very smooth, and any challenge was easily managed by the team. We were able to get updates along the way, and JMC were very accommodating to any changes we had as well as making so many great suggestions to help us. Their workmanship is second to none. We cannot fault JMC build, they were professional, transparent, reliable and ultimately created a fantastic new home for our family. We would happily recommend JMC to any potential prospect, and will certainly use the team again for any future plans. Thank you for building our forever dream home.

Very good and professional.

I used JMC Build Ltd for construction works on our villa. The project involved excavating under the house to add an extra floor, installing a new staircase, then renovating the entire upper floor to add additional bathrooms and reconfigure the layout.

The period of works coincided with the Covid lockdowns and materials shortages, which could have presented serious obstacles to completion of the project, but James managed the added complexities of the process very well so that works were completed within a reasonable time frame, and in time for an event-driven final deadline.

I was very happy with the subcontractors used by JMC and overall I am very pleased with the way that the new floor of the house has been integrated with the 125 year old original space.

I am happy to recommend JMC Build to people who are planning to undertake a large scale construction or renovation project involving a heritage building.


Renovation , Remuera

My wife and I used the services of Mr James Clarke from JMC Build Limited over December 2012 – January 2013 to project manage and renovate our bathroom and construct a new fence along our boundary.

Throughout the entire process we found James’ communication skills to be exceptional, right from the initial consultation to the completion of the job. James’ attention to detail and high level of skill and workmanship could not be faulted. Once the demolition of the existing bathroom was completed he was presented with many additional issues, James dealt with these issues in a highly professional manner. James showed good project management skills and managed his pool of subcontractors very effectively which allowed for the project to be completed to a high standard on schedule. We found James to be extremely trustworthy and had no issue with him having a key and working in our house while we were not there.

I have no hesitation in recommending JMC Build Limited.

We were put in touch with James from JMC build when contacting Eurocave to enquire about wine storage/wine cellar.

I simply cannot fault James and his team at JMC build in one single way. The project was more complicated than originally though, work was completed to the highest standard, sub-contractors were awesome, finished on schedule despite challenges, and never had to clean up ever at the end of the day – site was always so clean.

We are absolutely thrilled with our wine cellar and I am more than happy to speak with any potential client of JMC build. Highly recommend JMC build and have them lined up to do the last reno at our house – a new bathroom.

James has been great to deal with, as have his sub-contractors and all is going to plan. The final stages of painting started today, and what a fabulous bathroom we have got! It is fantastic and I would unreservedly recommend James to anyone who wanted a professional attitude, prompt attention and someone easy to work with.


Bathroom Renovation , Kohimarama, Auckland

James Clarke (JMC Build Ltd), a self-employed contractor, was recommended to me as an Auckland-based builder. I purchased two kitset buildings for my property at Piha, West Auckland in March 2012 from Edwards Garden and Greenhouse Ltd, Tauranga, and they endorsed James as a preferred assembler of their products.

James came with trade qualifications and an extensive building background, so my job seemed like a small project for him, however, with great enthusiasm for all work did not deter him any way. James used several other subcontractors to finish my project in a very short time frame and I was thrilled with the outcome.

Through having worked as a contracts manager and recruiter of numerous staff and contractors working across various trades, I have strong opinions on who demonstrates mediocrity or talent, and I immediately felt that James was a great find and if future opportunities arose, I would have no hesitation in inviting him to take on more work for me.

It is such a pleasure for me to be able to provide this reference for James as I was so impressed with his level of professionalism and delivery of exceptional customer service and he only deserves to do well. I recommend James without reservation as whoever selects him as their building contractor will be sure of working with a pleasant, highly reliable, skilled and conscientious professional.

A minor renovation or major re-build
Requires someone suitably skilled
Not prepared to play games –
We were recommended young James
And our expectations were more than filled!

From the initial discussion we were sold
This professional builder was gold
From beginning to end
And with an eye on the spend
James was every bit as good and we’d been told!

Despite our obvious dread
Of renovations going over our head
It was refreshing to find
Someone patient and kind
And who turns up when he said!

So now it’s our turn to boast
About the builder who’s better than most
He made the ordeal much more pleasurable
And the results are all measurable
So to JMC Builders – we Toast!

James was one of three builders I asked for a quote, to undertake some general house repairs on my wooden villa. James was streets ahead of the other builders I received quotes from. He was a great communicator, he identified other potential issues and raised them with me for consideration about whether I wanted to include them or not (and thankfully he did). He undertook the work pretty much the week later and did it quickly and on budget! James was quick to respond, excellent with his communication in keeping me updated, and had great quality work. He was also trustworthy in that my tenant was happy to leave him a key to undertake some inside work. I’d hire James again if I had any other building related work arise. I have no hesitation in recommending him to my friends either.
