Symonite ‘Cost and Quality’ Statement. We will not compromise standards of design, manufacture and installation to gain business through cost reduction. We prefer to save our clients unnecessary expense by rigorously pursuing efficiencies in pre-planning, design and production and introducing management processes that allow us to work effectively with the client’s site personnel during the installation phase. We have a reputation based on delivering projects that continue to perform to a consistent quality standard post completion.
AN OVERVIEW OF OUR PROCESSES.
At the beginning of each new project we meet with the Architects, Developers and Builders to ascertain how our technical capability and experience can help develop custom solutions to suit each particular project.
We site measure the project, prepare project specific workshop drawings for approval, taking into account wind loadings, etc. and identify cost saving opportunities through efficient design and panel usage.
Planning the installation and designing the details prior to commencement allows Symonite to overcome the majority of site problems at an early stage. This pre-planning and attention to detail allows us to complete within budget and on time. We source from a number of manufacturers worldwide, (to ensure reliability and variety of supply) fabricate in our own factory, deliver to site and install the fabricated panels. Only in this way can our design and specification team guide the project through all stages and be confident of guaranteeing the final result.
- New Zealand’s largest and most experienced ACP contractor, with over 120 full-time staff in four offices.
- Incredibly proud of our track record – more than 1,600 projects successfully completed, including some of the country’s most complex ACP jobs (see our Gallery)

PROJECT MANAGEMENT/DESIGN SERVICE.
Every project is assigned a manager from start to finish whose responsibility it is to deliver the job to specification. The client only has to deal with one point of contact and lines of communication remain clear.
Working with the project manager and client, our experienced Estimating Department are able to offer expert advice and alternative specifications helping to make projects more cost effective and keeping them within budget.
DEFECT FREE INSTALLATION.
