We specialize in what makes your home YOU
Meet the Faces behind Superior Renovations
At Superior Renovations, we put much importance on carefully hand selecting our team members. We take our time to assemble our tight-knit community of masterminds who are specialists in their respective fields. We employ experts from all construction and renovation industries to offer our clients the best quality service and solutions, designed, implemented and maintained to give you an exceptional experience and result for your home renovation project.
What do we all have in common?
We all believe in three things that we consider as the most important when it comes to our company culture and hiring the right people.
Are they loyal to the company, to the team, to the brand, to the clients? Will they be client-centric in their decision making and business development?
How well do they work and gel with other people on the team? How is the chemistry? It’s not enough to find A-grade players who are not A-grade team members.
Do they have the abilities, the capacity to perform the task at a world-class level? Can they produce results on a consistent basis? Is their decision-making process solution based?

It always fascinates her how dynamic the construction industry in Auckland is. Despite the housing market at its all time low, people still want to renovate homes to improve their quality of life. She believes that this is exactly what we are all striving to do – evolving and always improving.
When she first started studying to be a quantity surveyor she realised that she was yearning to go out there and get into the action. This is when she decided that she would do her degree on a part-time basis and dedicate the rest of my time actually working in the construction industry.
While she enjoyed her role as a quantity surveyor, she yearned for something more creative as she has a background in teaching arts and painting. Being a project manager at Superior Renovations appealed to her as she could draw on her previous managerial skills but also gave her the opportunity to get involved in the design aspect of a renovation project. She loves that no two days are the same as every client is unique and so are there needs.
Her passion for numbers initially prompted her to study accounting. As time went by though she realised that day to day accounting tasks such as doing payroll etc was not something she enjoyed.
Joining the Superior Renovations team has been a very exciting experience for her. As Superior Renovations is a young and growing company she really got the chance to challenge herself and do more than just the mundane.
Her role at Superior Renovations is providing a structured and strategic analysis of how the company should set its financial goals. She played a vital part in creating accounting and financial policies for our internal and external stakeholders based on results from our back costing reports. She also create financial reports and advice on matters of sales and profit margins. In short her role has a direct impact on the profitability of the business.
Her role primarily includes:
– Advising our shareholders on the benefits and risks of capital investments of projects by appraising cash flow
– Providing financial advice on business structures, plans and operations
– Introducing and maintaining accounting systems, and advising on the selection and application of computer-based accounting systems
– Providing assurance about the accuracy of information contained in financial reports and their compliance with statutory requirements
– Examining operating costs and organisations’ income and expenditure
– Preparing financial statements for presentation to directors, management team and staff who hold portions of responsibility
Her advice to young accounts would be to find a company that allows you to create, nurture and improve yourself and interests. It is truly amazing when you can see your efforts make a difference to the company you work in.
