“I cannot recommend Craig McQuoid enough! His expertise and guidance were instrumental in making our Construction project at Tauriko a resounding success. Craig brought a wealth of local knowledge and contacts to the table, offering valuable insights and solutions to the project. His professionalism, attention to detail, and dedication to our project was commendable. If you are looking for a building project consultant who goes above and beyond Craig from CM Consulting is the one to trust”.


“I am a property developer and have been involved in the commercial and industrial property scene for 40 years primarily in Tauranga but have property interests all over New Zealand. By choice, I use Craig McQuoid from CM Consulting as my Project Manager based on his unique Project Management  process of mitigating risk. Craig is extremely focused individual and has established this process which safeguards property developers through concentrating on the detail, within the design phase of the  project. This covers off important items such as future proofing,  access, generic use, fixed contract pricing, contractor selection, eliminating risk in design, material selection, return on investment and compliance Craigs emphasis on ‘attention to detail’ for all aspects of development results in a hassle-free construction process with an outstanding result. The build process as a result is seamless and the experience thoroughly enjoyable. I understand CM Consulting’s work stems from ‘word of mouth’ and I certainly contribute to that by highlyrecommending Craig, to any entity considering project development or conversely those tenants requiring purpose­built facilities for long term lease. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending CM Consulting for any industrial or commercial project development.”


“Tui products embarked on a design and build project in 2012 for a purpose-built facility for its national manufacturing and warehousing operations. Craig McQuoid was involved from the outset, providing expert guidance in terms of the complete design and construction process. His knowledge of all things construction and commitment to understanding the needs of Tui and its business processes gave us confidence in his professional advice and ability to deliver on our requirements to build an efficient, safe and effective workplace. Craig was able to assist with innovative solutions to our specific business functionality and contributed significantly toward the new Mount Maunganui site, which we opened in 2014 and are extremely proud of.”


“This is to introduce Craig McQuoid and to tell you of my confidence in his ability as a building consultant.
I met Craig when he was working with a Developer in Tauranga on a large building project for our company. I found him helpful, knowledgeable and easy to deal with. Craig is an obliging and easy going man and works to high standards of probity and integrity.
I have no hesitation in recommending him for your next building project.”


“I engaged Craig McQuoid at ‘CM Consulting’ to project manage all the professional services for my Industrial building to be built at Tauriko Tauranga.
Craig’s knowledge of the construction industry has been a huge benefit during the design and engineering phase for the development. His suggestions about materials and how things are constructed are second to none.
I would without question, recommend Craig to anyone that requires project management of all the engineering and compliance for a new Industrial or Commercial building.
It has been a seamless exercise, with Craig attending every meeting with the professionals and guiding me all the way to get an excellent result which has cost me significantly less than it would have if I did it for myself.
I have since engaged him to look after the project management of the construction to ensure I get the best result possible.”


“Craig has assisted me with a proposal to develop an Industrial Build on two sections we own in the Tauriko industrial estate.  Craig’s role was to connect me with suitable consultancy firms and building contractors to allow us to develop a concept plan for the said projects. Once we had the concept drawn. He then arranged a meeting with suitable commercial building contractors to develop cost feasibility. During this time I have found Craig to be most professional. He has a wonderful ability to hear what (me) the client is asking for and helping me get this from the various agencies we engaged to work with.  He has requested reasonable time frames for the information we required, which the various parties were happy to comply with. Craig has helped make this a most enjoyable experience. I would not hesitate in recommending Craig for anyone who is planning to become involved with the complexity of an industrial or commercial build.”


“Craig McQuoid worked for the building company we dealt with as the Building Development Manager.
He helped supervise the building of our 1200 square metre warehouse at the Tauriko Business Estate in Tauranga.
The warehouse was built at the quoted price and it was no problem making small changes we requested to the warehouse as the building was in progress.
When the warehouse was completed we were delighted with the end result.
Craig was a pleasure to deal with and very professional in his dealings with us. I have no hesitation in recommending him.”


“I first came into contract with Craig McQuoid when we were searching for someone to help us with the construction of our first commercial building project.
Craig demonstrated great skill, patience and design knowledge that fitted our budget but at the same time delivered a building that suited our needs perfectly.
Craig is a great communicator with a friendly demeanour, I would recommend him to anybody planning a building project.”


“This reference is for Craig McQuoid in his capacity as a building consultant.
I met Craig during the planning stage of an industrial building project in Tauranga, which was completed with his guidance.
Craig has a great ability to listen to the client’s needs and work within specification (technical and budgetary) to achieve a positive outcome.
During our build, we had some future-proofing and particular requirements outside the norm and Craig was able to articulate our needs through to the Project Manager and Builders on the job.
I have always found Craig very approachable and his knowledge of systems and building in general was of a very high standard.
I have no hesitation in recommending him for your next building project.”


“I can honestly say that the hard work CM Consulting put into providing a bespoke service for my project is the reason that they are able to repeatedly bring in projects on time and on budget. Craig has an authority of calm that means that the inevitable hic-ups that occur during a project are identified and resolved quickly and efficiently with minimal fuss. A saving of time and money for myself. Craig is a very experienced and committed Project Manager and his knowledge of not only his role but of everyone’s around him and the synergy that is required to maximize the best use of a consultancy team makes him not only a true professional but a dream to work with. I look forward to having the opportunity to work with him again in the future.”


Craig McQuoid from CM Consulting has been a valuable resource to Waihi Beach Lifeguard Services Inc for several years. Craig has provided expert advice regarding our building where we provide lifeguarding, patrol and search and rescue services. As a charity operated by volunteers, it is difficult for the Board to be across regulatory and council requirements, fire regulations and building warrant of fitness, to name a few. Craig has overseen the responsibility of the Club in the community and ensures we meet all of these regulations.

Craig has project managed several projects for the Club, from design to permitting to the build. He has connected us with experts to help us construct functional mobile towers for lifeguards to patrol from the beach and a solar power system to make the Club sustainable and save costs. Craig has taken the pressure off the volunteers as he understands what we need to commit to and has streamlined many processes, resulting in longevity and projects that are fit for purpose and meet the necessary regulations. With limited funds available, we must achieve the right outcome the first time, and Craig’s is dedicated to getting it right.

Craig’s contribution allows the Club to focus on lifeguarding, patrolling and search and rescue services, as we are not tied up with logistics. He has taken an incredible amount of pressure off the Club and is very easy to work with. In this regard, Craig is the ‘lifesaver’.”


“I met Craig McQuoid when we were contemplating a new purpose-built building at Mount Maunganui.
We essentially needed a warehouse area with two separate tenancies and a two level office, requiring three separate tenancies.
Craig has a sound knowledge of building materials and systems and was able to advise on what products were best suited for the office and warehouse areas we required, along with related design and engineering solutions.
He managed the process throughout the planning stages and ensured that the professional services were performed to the required standards ensuring that all bases were covered.
Craig provided very competitive pricing for the build when compared with others and coped with all matters in a very professional manner.
Craig’s experience in the construction industry was an asset to the planning and successful conclusion of the build and we are very happy with the end result.”
