We have used Mike and the team at Bemur Construction Ltd over the last five years or so, firstly to do a major remodel of our large apartment and then for various building repair work jobs done since then.

As acting chairman of our Body Corp I am also aware of work done by Bemur in four other apartment’s in the group, where all of the owners have been very satisfied with various building solutions carried out by Bemur.

Bemur are easy to deal with, are good at detail, come when they say they will and will always go the extra mile to achieve a high level of customer satisfaction. We are very happy to recommend Bemur for any building work that you may be contemplating.

We have dealt with Bemur Construction on 3 separate projects over a period of 15 years. First they assisted us with alterations and landscaping to a California Bungalow house we were renovating and subsequently sold.
Then they built from scratch a brand new house of some 500 sq.m. in Epsom, central Auckland. This a big project with involved removal of an old house on the site, preparation of the site, liaison with the Architect and Council and management and construction of all aspects of the project. Lasty they assisted us with building inspections of new houses we were considering for purchase.

On every occasion we found Bemur Construction to be helpful, professional and reliable in every contact we had with them. They were proactive in making suggestions in our projects that benefited us.
They offered us valuable advice and input in all our dealings with them. The value of having a knowledgeable and experienced building / construction company on your side cannot be overstated. Even after our business contact was over, if we ever had the need to go back with any questions or asking for recommendations about ongoing maintenance or further action, this was no problem for Bemur Construction. They gave their time and advice willingly, even when not on the clock.
Most importantly they genuinely cared that we were successful in our contact and dealings with them. They wanted the interaction they had with us to be beneficial for all involved, of course themselves. Bemur Construction is a company you can rely on.

Having used Bemur Construction since Mike & Grant established the Company, I would not hesitate to recommend their services to anyone planning a building project or requiring general maintenance.


I have personally used Bemur Construction on a number of different project including new builds, major renovations and maintenance in both the commercial and residential segments, and with their extensive building backgrounds, have always been satisfied with the finished product.
Both their own builders and sub trades used are also experts in their fields and have met and exceeded all quality expectations.
I have recommended Bemur to a number of friends and business colleagues who have subsequently continued to use Mike & Grant over the years which is the real test of their competence.


Both Mike & Grant take the time to fully explain the options and recommend the most cost effective solution and will do their upmost to achieve any deadline imposed. Any work they do can be undertaken without any supervision on my behalf but with regular updates given as to progress.
In a field where there are a number of "cowboys" it is reassuring to know you are dealing with a Company which operates with integrity and will get the job done without conflict or drama.

I was recommended Bemur Construction Management by a large and reputable Homeware and Plumbing supplier in the Franklin District as I wanted to commence a full internal house refurbishment of my rural family house and associated services. I had already terminated a previous initial local contractor through substandard workmanship and attitude issues in minor early works associated to the property hence I really needed a reliable and trustworthy professional management team to get the major works underway.

Bemur Construction Management definitely proved to be the professionals capable of understanding our vision and criteria in terms of quality/ performance and expectations in fully upgrading and modernizing of the total house in every aspect we jointly found possible, because I work constantly offshore NZ, I was also able to remotely agree on their various formal proposals and submittals from them with total confidence and peace of mind allowing works to continue in my ongoing absence with ease of communications available where variations and suggestions were necessary. The impact on my family continuing to reside at the property was well managed and considered becoming seemingles.

The final result of our several hundred-thousand-dollar upgrade using Bemur Construction speaks volumes for the need to get the right professionals with their dedicated subcontractors involved from the beginning in an Auckland housing sector that suffers considerably from non-professionals in abundance with results and disappointments to match.
Bemur Construction will be the contractor we engage for all future housing and civil works in the future based on the current results of our rural Ararimu property.

Bemur (Mike Murphy and Grant Bell) did a magnificent job in building a 7 star beach house for me at Orua Bay. It was a very challenging construction with huge retaining and beach access along the sand only at low tide. There was no room on site to store building materials so the organisation was a nightmare not only for site materials but also persuading subcontractors to attend. The job was completed to the highest standard and Mike and Grant would always make time to come out to sort any problems for years afterwards. We still have a good relationship.
Bemur also completely refurbished my apartment on the Herne Bay waterfront….again to the highest standard.
Photographs do not do either project justice.

We are extremely happy with our new home. Although not so new, as now 12 years old but still gets compliments from all who visit.

The building process was not stressful as Mike, Grant and the whole team were friendly, considerate and accommodating and any changes we wanted along the way were never an issue.

Twelve years on, still no problems and we would do it all again.
