HH4-08 and HH5-08 Lecture Theatres, UniSA, City West Campus - Harrold & Kite's ability to meet the tight timeframes whilst providing first class customer service demonstrated their ability to undertake the Managing Contractor role at the highest standard.

I have worked with Harrold & Kite on two significant projects which were fast tracked - $2.3M Medical Chemistry Laboratory environment within Reid Building Level 5, where H&K delivered this complex fit-out as the Managing Contractor & the extensive $1.3M External Plaza project at City East. The complexity of constructing whilst on a functioning campus over a 6 month time frame highlights Harrold & Kite’s collaborative and flexible approach to project delivery. My experience with H&K has been of benchmark quality, collaboratively working within all constraints, managing the project through construction, to the critical phases of hand over and defects liability period, all within the strict budget and timeframes offered in the university environment. H&K’s attention to detail and thorough close out of project deliverables sets them in high regard within our organisation."

I am the Principal of a Special School that was fortunate enough to have Harrold & Kite engaged in a major refurbishment of the internal and external areas of the School. It was not only my opinion, but the opinion of all the staff, the School Board and wider school community that we were in very capable hands. The build was completed successfully, professionally and on time. Harrold & Kite went above and beyond; they were astute problem solvers and were able to suggest and facilitate solutions to all the unexpected issues as they arose. They liaised well with their subcontractors, co-opting them to come on board to work within a very tight time line. Harrold & Kite were reliable, good-humored, professional and ultimately cared about the project. They were respectful of our work practices, friendly to our staff and most importantly, courteous and kind to our special needs students. I recommend them highly and would not hesitate to engage them again.

UniSA Magill Samsung SMARTSchool - My experience with Harrold & Kite in a Managing Contractor capacity has always been positive, they have consistently delivered on time, cost and quality. The Samsung SMARTSchool project had an incredibly tight time frame and Harrold & Kite contributed innovative solutions to combine the modular construction with an in-situ build, to enable the architectural aesthetic to be realised. Harrold & Kite’s dedicated team of contractors worked right through the Christmas break in order to meet the deadline, continually value adding and working with the Architectural Team to solve complex details. Throughout the project Harrold & Kite mentored a UniSA Construction student and they safely facilitated staff and a primary school group to visit the site. They also maintained a perfect safety record, despite the number of contractors on the site, focussed on finishing the project. Harrold & Kite have never failed to deliver a project on time for me and all of our stakeholders are impressed with the quality of the end result, I can’t speak highly enough of them.

Harrold and Kite team have displayed strong leadership in the project management and construction of the new innovative Head Office and Residential Aged Care Facility at Prospect. Undertaking a major redevelopment where residents remain onsite is a challenge. The Prospect redevelopment was completed with significant praise from residents, families and staff, as Harrold and Kite acknowledged the importance of respecting that this was the residents’ home, and they were always aware of the proposed works. The close working relationship fostered by the team contributed to the timely and on budget completion of the redevelopment. This confidence in Harrold and Kite contributed to their subsequent appointment to undertake the Elizabeth Park redevelopment

The Ukaria Cultural Centre is a unique and beautiful building. Its acoustic performance has been recognised nationally and was described in the Australian newspaper as ‘Astonishing both visually and acoustically and is to be counted as one of Australia’s finest chamber music venues. Harrold and Kite were integral to the outstanding success of this project. Their attention to detail, the craftsmanship of their sub-contractors, particularly the carpenters, has resulted in a building which resembles a magnificent piece of the finest cabinetry. Their collaborative approach to working with the design team ensured that the building was delivered on time and on budget. As clients we greatly appreciated their care and co-operation and we highly recommend their services as builders of utmost quality.
