What our clients say


Dan and Keli Gerken's company, Betterbuild Queenstown Ltd, have worked almost continuously on various projects I have either owned or managed for the last 4 years. The tasks succesfully completed range in scope from renovation of an existing house to light commercial building works. During this time, either Dan or his associated team have completed all works undertaken to a very high building standard and Dan has acted with professionalism and integrity throughout. I would have no hesitation in recommending both Dan and his team to others looking for a suitable builder.

Tim Hemingway - QIP Limited (Development company)

I am pleased to write this letter of reference for Dan Gerken. In 2009 we approached Dan to construct a tennis court and complete all associated retaining and landscaping work. Dan delivered on the project with highly efficent workmanship, provided clear and constructive communication as to the complicated design, costings and build considerations, and maintained at all time a polished and professional work ethic. I have no hesitation in recommending Dan in his vocation.

Mathew J. M. Rose - Rose Capital Management Limited

In my opinion, Dan and his building team at BetterBuild Construction provided exceptional results in the areas of quality and timeline management on our projects. Dan has good leadership skills with a very clear and direct management style. His bookkeeping and work records were accurate and timely. He also has the ability to work with architects and councils to achieve the desired results. Dan and his team had a work ethic that was rare to find and they would often go beyond the call of duty. Over this time I also came to know Dan and his family very well and both our families spent time together socially. We found the Gerken family very supportive as friends and you could rely on Dan at any time and he would always be the first to lend a hand if required.

Henry Norcross - Norcross Printing

Dan Gerken came to us highly recommended as a first class builder. Dan, for the most part working on his own, commenced construction in May 2011. The project was completed in August 2011. Over this time, we developed a deep respect for Dan both in terms of his personal character and his sheer ability. We came to learn that Dan works quickly and tirelessly. He is intelligent, thoughtful and practical. He is careful, precise and incredibly fussy, determined to achieve a perfect result. His workmanship is superb. In addition to being the best builder we have ever worked with, Dan is very community minded, taking up the role of cub master in Arrowtown.

Dan has become a good friend. If we have any building work in the future, we will most definitely want Dan to do it We have no hesitation in recommending Dan to anyone wanting a superb builder.
