People with the right expertise. The right experience. And above all, the right attitude. At Kalmar, our philosophy for success can be distilled to one simple phrase: “being good people to deal with”. It’s a phrase that works at every level and encompasses clients, consultants, subcontractors and employees. That’s why we’ve built such a strong, enduring relationships.

For over two decades we have been successfully delivering construction projects of all shapes, sizes and levels of complexity for our clients.

You can see examples of our work throughout Auckland. Projects include Retirement Villages, Apartment Buildings, Industrial Units, Hotels and Hospitality, Hospitals and Clinics, Commercial Spaces, Heritage Buildings and Seismic Construction.

We have the skills. We have the experience.

Having the right attitude goes a long way as well.

We make the entire construction process as smooth and stress-free for our clients as possible.

Every member of our team draws on our core values of being cooperative and non-adversarial, every day. Our company mantra is simple but effective: “People will not always remember what you said but will always remember how you made them feel.”

It’s not just a throwaway line. Our numerous projects for repeat clients is testament to that.
