"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."

“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”

“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”

"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."

"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"

"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.
We have used many builders over the years, but would rate Ninety45 Limited as the best. We would certainly use Scott and his Team again and would have no hesitation referring Scott and Ninety45 Limited."

"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!"
