What clients say about us!


Troy arranged for Geoff to be on site and the communication was excellent. Geoff was super helpful and very skilled. He replaced some rotten weatherboards prior to painting and the quality of work was outstanding. He also attended to some minor fixes and gave great advice. Highly recommend these guys!

Troy and the team at QBS have delivered exceptional service throughout the renovation. We had to live on site during the build so were conscious of the impact that would have, particularly with the fact we had a 2-year-old. James, Tane, and Billy were so good at accommodating us being on site. They cleaned up the site daily, water blasted the entrance, swept up, and ensured the property was safe and kept to a liveable standard. Their communication was fantastic, they kept us well informed of progress, and provided us with a list of targets at the start of the week and an update of what had been achieved at the end of the week.

Troy kept the project running, meeting with us bi-weekly to ensure the renovation was on time and on budget. Inevitably things changed, but Troy always acted with our best interests at heart. He challenged our architect and protected us from tradesmen that didn’t quite deliver on their promises. Trust between you and your builder is hugely important when embarking on a renovation and Troy certainly appeased our minds.

We’ve already recommended QBS to friends as a high-quality, trustworthy construction company. We’ve heard plenty of horror stories about renovations but ours was smooth sailing from start to finish thanks to a great team at QBS.

I would have no hesitation recommending QBS to anyone planning a reno. The job would have been finished on time if the joinery supplier had not made an error with one of the windows which held the job up for a couple of weeks. Pleasant people to deal with and the job did not go over budget which was much appreciated. I would use them again.


Troy’s team have done a great job on what was an extensive addition/renovation. Site manager, James Sorenson, and his crew finished the job to an excellent level, and on schedule.


Fantastic service! Excellent work from the team at QBS with our job – a full build, converting an empty warehouse to an upmarket fitness facility. Troy was fantastic to deal with as he was honest and open about all aspects of the build. He kept us informed of ongoing changes and progress and steered us in the right direction when trying to bring the costs down without sacrificing the quality of the finished product. He has a great group of tradies working with him who are respectful, on time, and they got the job done fast. This meant we could open our doors to paying clients on time!

Troy is a genuine guy who fronts this company. When we had an issue with the council that was going to potentially derail our whole project, he was understanding and able to accommodate our new time frame. This allowed us to put the project on hold when he would have been entitled to charge us for our delays.

We have nothing but good things to say about the process of dealing with these guys and the final product they produced. They even project managed our job and made the whole process an absolute breeze.

We would highly recommend them if you are looking for a local builder and team that will treat you like a good friend and get the job done to a high standard. We would happily refer friends and family to QBS if they needed a build project taken care of.


Best builders we could have asked for during our time on the Block NZ. Troy has created a strong team culture with the boys from QBS where they only settle for the best and put the customer first! Martin was a godsend for us with his creativity and attention to detail. Being a on reality show, we had very strict working conditions and super tight deadlines which the boys always made sure we met.

If quality workmanship and efficiency is what you are after, then give Troy a call. You will not regret it! We definitely didn’t.


I was doing some renovation work on my villa and Troy was one of the builders that I got a quote from. I did pay a little bit more but by choice as from the start of quoting, Troy added so much more value by pointing out what could be done, rather than me asking five builders for a quote based on what I wanted. Troy delivered on time and exceeded my expectations on quality and the result. I will continue to buy villas to renovate and there is no doubt Troy will be the only builder I work with. From consultation through to delivery, he is awesome and his work is exceptional! If anyone wants more detail you can contact me on [email protected]


QBS were reliable, hardworking, and the construction completed was of a high standard. The project was completed outside of normal working hours and within budget.


We used QBS to renovate our bathroom, which involved a complete rebuild. They did a professional job, turned up on time, improved the plan to ensure a better end result for us, liaised with subtrades and building inspectors, and were respectful of our home. Would recommend.


We used QBS Ltd to build a large extension to our house (75m2) including kitchen and living room. The team were fantastic – a great bunch of guys, very clean and tidy, and a pleasure to have on site. We changed our scope (added a kitchen) in the middle of the build and Troy and the team were very accommodating. Because we changed the scope, the timeframe blew out a little, but the team still did a great job of getting it completed within a reasonable extended period. The quality of workmanship was great. Troy worked in really well with the subbies we wanted to use, and any time there was an issue with his subbies, he was right on to it.

It’s now 4 months from completion and every little thing that has needed a look at has been addressed by QBS. We are very happy with the result. Thanks Troy and the QBS team!


I contacted several building companies for quotes on my bathroom renovation – 3 came out to quote and the difference in price was vast.

Although I was on a budget, I was also concerned about how long the job would take and that there would be no nasty surprises.

I found Troy to be extremely reliable, he arrived when he said he would, quoted me quickly and explained exactly what would be done. He also offered advice which turned out to be very valuable to me.

Once I had given him the go-ahead, he started the job on time, worked really efficiently, and completed in record time. He kept me informed regarding the extra costs of the unexpected plumbing required, and went out of his way to make sure I was happy with the work.

I can recommend this company as they made the bathroom renovation a pleasant experience for me. I absolutely love my new bathroom!

Troy dealt with bathroom suppliers on our behalf when necessary which made for a stress-free experience. Qualified Building Solutions personel oversaw all tradesmen which ensured all areas were of a very high standard. This included plumbers, painters, tilers, and electricians. Overall, our bathroom renovation was done in a very short time with excellent results and at a very reasonable price. The overall result looks fantastic. Thanks to all concerned.


Troy showed up on time when he said he would! I was really stoked with his work and friendly attitude towards myself and the job he was doing! The job was completed to a high level which I was really happy with. He quoted the job and stayed to his price. I was also very happy with how clean he left the job site when he was done. In all, I would definitely use Troy and QBS in the future for any building work that I need done. I will also put his company name forward if anyone I know iss looking for building work to be done at their place to a high quality. Cheers


Troy was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Professional, considerate, honest, efficient and with high-quality workmanship. His sub-contractors all worked with him enthusiastically and quickly, and the job was completed within the time frame and cost-effectively. Troy also had great initiative and design sense and would take the time to point out any potential issues and the alternatives. I would highly recommend Troy to anyone looking for a trustworthy, cost-effective, communicative builder with a great sense of humour. We are very fortunate to have found you Troy. Thank you 🙂


Troy and his team completed a major renovation on our house. Troy’s standards are high and, therefore, the quality of workmanship was consistently good. The team are extremely trustworthy, and nothing was a problem. We would definitely recommend QBS.


We are extremely happy with the work Qualified Solutions have done for us. The work was done to a very high standard and we’re just about to have them back to completely renovate our kitchen and dining room. Troy has been a pleasure to work with and have in our house and we wouldn’t use anyone else again. Highly recommended.


I got QBS to build a spec house for me in Ponsonby. The quality of their workmanship is superb and I’m very happy with the outcome. It was quite a long project due to its size and complexity, but the boys put in the long hours and worked hard to achieve the set milestones. The boys in QBS are highly qualified to do any type of project. Nothing was too difficult, and I depended on them when other trades let me down. It was a positive experience throughout the construction.


Troy and his team undertook a significant renovation on my 100-year-old bungalow including new bathrooms, kitchen, internal layout, small extension, joinery and roofing. There were many challenges which is to be expected with such an old building. Troy’s team did a great job tackling any issues that arose and managed to keep the budget on-track. The end result is outstanding. The team’s attention to detail was great and they even offered ideas to improve things during the process.


Troy and his team recently renovated our carwash/cafe facility in Greenlane. We found them to be precise, thorough, and, most importantly, trustworthy. Troy and his team worked through the night to ensure our business was not interrupted during opening hours. Troy pulled together a wide-ranging group of trades whom all performed at a high level. The reno was completed on time and under budget without cutting corners. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending QBS to anyone looking for a team dedicated to delivering a top-quality product.

We decided to use QBS Limited for our house renovation. They were brilliant. In the initial planning phase Troy gave us some great guidance that saved us around $45,000 from what was originally planned. James, the site Foreman, and the QBS builders on site, were amazing to deal with. Nothing was too much to deal with, even catching my runaway dogs, and they were extremely helpful and kept us abreast of what was happening at all times. Throughout the whole project they gave us good sound advice for any problems that we encountered. All the Tradies that Troy organised were really fantastic to work with and all very skilful. The timing of every part of the renovation was organised perfectly, including Tradies on site and delivery of materials.

The whole project ran extremely smoothly, all the Tradies worked together well (no blaming each other or getting in each other’s way). We had access to comprehensive online tracking of both the project costs and the project progress, so no surprises. Any issues along the way were raised with us, discussed thoroughly, and resolved with our full involvement and the best advice.

The project came in just slightly over the original budget but, with the some of the original 1950’s and 1970’s poor building quality to fix up, we came in remarkably close to our original budget (thanks to Troy managing to come in under budget on some of the other parts of the project).

Projects like this are all about the people, and you couldn’t ask for a better qualified, easy to work with, well organised, skilful team lead by Troy and James. Our house has turned out far better than I thought it would and the journey has been fantastic the QBS Limited. I can’t recommend them highly enough. Honest, hard working, friendly, and fun.

Having made up our mind to contract QBS to build our extension after being recommended by word of mouth Troy came to the party with sound advice apart from the intro to an architect Troy put two good young fellas on the job with Ryan Cowie as site foreman and Matt. These two young guys really busted their butts and went over and above even to the extent of building the internal gutter and supplying the drawings to the architect. Also all but one of the sub trades were excellent, to the extent we have used two of them more than once again.

Also would like to give a mention to Brent who also was a credit to QBS.

Steve & Annette Robertson

We have just used QBS to complete the installation of a bespoke design kitchen window. Although it was fairly small project, Troy was happy to take on the job and provided us with a great builder (Geoff) who did an excellent job and finished to a high standard of workmanship. Troy managed the project, put us in touch with the right suppliers and ensured a smooth and easy process throughout. The end result is better than expected and we will definitely use QBS for our next reno project.

Amazing service – great quality work too! Thanks Troy & team!
