Customer Testimonials

"Scott and the team at Ninety 45 completed an extensive renovation of our villa in Epsom. Right from the start we were impressed with Scott and the team's professionalism, experience and knowledge during our year long renovation. Communication was really clear at all times and we really appreciated the fine craftsmanship and attention to detail from the team. Our renovation was an enjoyable process and we would have no hesitation in recommending Ninety 45 or using them again in the future."

— Tim Johnston
"We had an outstanding experience with Ninety45 and highly recommend Scott and his team to others wanting a professional, high quality, value for money, timely and truly enjoyable renovation experience. Most people have horror stories about their renovations - not us - hard to believe but absolutely true. Couldn't recommend them any higher."

— Victoria Fletcher
"Ninety45 was one of three builders we invited to tender for the complete renovation and extension of our Mt Eden villa.

From the moment we met Scott, we were put at ease with his professionalism. His guidance through what was our first renovation project - a daunting task - was invaluable

He is a great communicator. He worked very well our architect and engineer and the council to get the project completed on time. He and his team suggested several changes along the process which we believe delivered a better outcome. Our project was the first that our architect and Scott had worked together on, and our architect has gone on to recommend Scott to several of his clients - a testament to the quality of Scotts work.

His team of carpenters, and sub contractors were fantastic. We could not fault their workmanship.

If you are thinking about a high end new build or renovation, you should definitely talk to Scott and his team."

— Leroy Wolland
“I was really impressed with Scott and his team. Their work on our two bathrooms was outstanding, they were approachable, easy to talk to and kept to budget. When there were a few issues, they talked these through with us and we worked out a way forward together.

They were also extremely tolerant of us living in our house through the renovations. It's always hard having tradespeople in the house with kids. They were great especially as our 3 kids scrambled to see what was going on every day before and after school. I highly recommend Scott and his team and will use them again.”

— Greta Yardley
“Ninety45 Ltd came recommended to us from our Interior Designer. We undertook a small extension and deck to our 1970's cedar clad house in St Helier’s as well as kitchen, bathroom and lounge renovations. Scott and his team were very approachable and made the process very easy with clear communication and regular cost monitoring. Apart from the normal construction dust the guys were very clean and tidy and respected our home. We are very pleased with the result and would make no hesitation in recommending Ninety45 in the future.”

— Jackie & Neil Holmes
"This was my first building experience and the team from Ninety45 made it a pleasant worry free experience. They produced quality workmanship and the attention to detail was fantastic on our 100 year old Kauri villa, transforming it tastefully with careful consideration to its history. They assisted in sourcing products to ensure we kept everything in keeping with the bones of the property whilst still allowing a more modern way of living to be achieved.

Scott and his team of carpenters were all approachable with any questions we had. Costing documentation was clear and we were offered a number of different options for our build."

— Mrs R Crannitch
"We entrusted Scott and the team at Ninety45 with completing our extensive Bungalow Renovation on Wairua Road in Remuera. What an amazing job you did! We were very impressed with every aspect of the process and are so happy with the beautiful home you created for us.

We were very impressed with Ninety45. Excellent attention to detail and communication throughout. We would definitely recommend your company to any prospective clients looking for a high spec builder."

-The Bridge Family
"We worked with Scott and his team of builders recently. It was our first time employing builders at this scale so we were a little anxious, but Scott put us at ease and kept us up to date throughout the entire project. We were able to capitalise on Scott's building knowledge and ideas that saw us end up with an even better result. I have no hesitation in recommending Scott and his team at Ninety45."

-Shawn McGowan
"Ninety45 did an outstanding job for us on our large renovation. I would highly recommend them to anyone doing a large new build or significant reno. They were highly professional and approached the job in a well organised way which made the job go like clockwork.

Scott is very knowledgeable about options and avoiding unnecessary pitfalls. They met all their timelines were great at bringing the job to its conclusion.

I rate them very highly and would absolutely use them again"

- Peter O’Dwyer
"We were introduced to Scott Thrupp of Ninety45 Limited by our daughter and son-in-law. Scott and his Team were doing a magnificent job of building their new architecturally designed home

We had architectural plans covering the redevelopment and upgrading of our large decks, balustrades and pergolas. Seeing the quality of their workmanship coupled with Scott’s excellent communication, organisation and efficient contract management skills, we decided to engage Ninety45 Limited for our project.

We were delighted with our final build and appreciated the quality of the workmanship. All of Scott’s Team from the apprentices to qualified builders were a delight to have on site. They were courteous, thoughtful, listened to our ideas and made practical suggestions."

- Clive and Pam Quinn
"Scott Thrupp and his team at Ninety 45 Limited have recently built our new family home in St Heliers. We are absolutely thrilled with our home. The journey of building was so enjoyable due to Scott’s exceptional communication and project management skills.

Scott is extremely professional and an excellent communicator. He constantly thinks will beyond the scope of the project and always offers positive solutions and suggestions. Scott’s detail to cost & pricing was incredibly accurate and very competitive within the market. Scott is very accommodating to change & nothing is ever a problem. He was fantastic at explaining concepts, ideas, and plans to ensure we fully understood the final product.

The workmanship of the team was outstanding. Our home has a number of architectural designs – many angles, wooden detailed ceilings etc. From start to finish the quality of the workmanship was outstanding and their attention to detail was incredible.

Scott worked extremely well with all other external parties such as architect, pool contractor, kitchen company, council to ensure the project ran efficiently and we had a seamless experience. Scott employed professional and competent sub-contractors who were all a pleasure to work with.

We would highly recommend Scott & his team and will definitely use them again for any future projects. Scott is an absolute pleasure to work with!"

- Sean & Kate Armstrong
"Scott and his team did a fantastic job building a oversized garage, retaining walls, pool and surrounds. Always easy to work with and had very good sub contractors. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Scott and use again for our future projects."

- Luke & Tim


"We worked with Scott and his team in 2018. They did an outstanding job for us on the renovation of our apartment and extensive work done on our deck in St Heliers.

It was a significant job, a complete redesign, as every wall that could be removed was! Scott helped us work through the unknowns that arise in any project (which you can never plan for). Scott was super professional with a great sense of humour and practicality. He made things easy at a time which can cause much anxiety and stress. His ideas and building knowledge were second to none as was the quality workmanship.
We are super pleased with the overall result and loving the new apartment and deck. We would highly recommend them and absolutely use their services again, no matter what the job."


- Kim & Kevin

"We've worked with Scott, Rochelle and their team a number of times on some very complex projects. They are incredibly professional with clear communication. The projects always seem to be well under control no matter what issues are confronting them (as is always the case in high end builds). I would definitely recommend them to anyone considering a quality build in Auckland."

- Doug M


"Scott and his team are brilliant! We were in such safe hands and valued their recommendations immensely. We had an incoming baby deadline and the team worked efficiently to allow us plenty of time to get back in the house before she arrived. Highly recommend."

- Rachel Forman


"We used Ninety45 for the renovation of our 1905 villa recently. This was the first time we had attempted a build or reno so we were nervous about the whole process, in particular the cost side of things. Our house is an old villa and we were keen to reinstate some of the original features and we knew the house might hold a few surprises.

To cut a long story short, it was a pleasure to deal with Fraser, Scott, Richie and the rest of the team from Ninety45. Reflecting now on what I liked most about the process, it was the availability or Fraser and Scott and the very high work ethic of the team. Progress was always being made and we hit our timetable despite several required additions / variations to the plan.
If you are considering a build or reno, I would not hesitate in recommending the Ninety45 team. It is a few months post completion now and we are loving the house and expect we will do so for decades to come."

- Ed Meredith

"Scott and his team delivered their service with professionalism and patience. All his team were great to work with during our one year villa renovation."

"Although Scott and his team undertook a smallish job for us it involved the coordination of a number of different sub trades over a period of months. Throughout this process there were a number of things that made Ninety45 stand out from previous contractors we have used. Scott always kept us informed of what was going on, his team and sub contractors always came when they were expected, they were polite and tidied up afterwards, and of course did a great job. We highly recommend Scott and have just begun to use Ninety45 for a major renovation of an old house where his organisational skills are also to the fore."

-Sheridan Harmos

"We worked with Scott Thrupp in 2013 when he managed the construction & renovation of four houses for us on The Block NZ Series 2, then again in 2014, when he managed the construction of four new builds on The Block NZ Series 3.

Scott’s professionalism, and attention to detail were exactly what we needed. He sought to understand our requirements carefully and delivered on time with no hidden costs at the end of the project. He also worked extremely well with other external parties such as the teams in each house; their contractors, our architects and the other service providers like the council, planners and surveyors.

Scott was well prepared and efficient throughout the process. He kept us updated with the building work and ensured we were aware of any problems that arose. He employed competent and professional sub contractors who did their work diligently and to schedule.

We would not hesitate to recommend Scott Thrupp for any residential building work. The Block is an incredibly demanding job; the work is more highly scrutinized than any other, the time frames extremely tight requiring meticulous time management and attention to detail, and all with the added complication of complimenting the construction schedule with a filming schedule. Despite all this, Scott coped immeasurably with the demands – he was a true asset to our team."
