Testimonials & Awards

Sheryl Mai

Mayor of Whangārei (2013 - 2022)

As Mayor of Whangārei, I wish to offer you my sincere congratulations on an outstanding final result with our newest public space, Pūtahi Park. The park has already become a firm favourite for children and adults alike. Your ability to deliver this outstanding park is now bearing fruit, as evidenced by the genuine squeals of delight from the crowds of children testing out our newest attraction.

You should be very proud of this achievement. Your extensive experience, countless hours of work and your careful choice of quality subcontractors is now paying off in the most heartwarming way. Congratulations to you, your team and your subcontractors for bringing to life a world class community treasure.

Hi Tom and Everyone at Robinson Asphalts

We just want to say a big THANK YOU for the superb job your guys did yesterday. We were most impressed with their attention to detail and the nice crisp edging around the rock walls — we imagine it was a bit of a different job, a bit fiddly, but the end result is very satisfying. Thanks again to all involved.

Richard and Karen Abel

I would like to pass on to you Karen’s and my sincere thanks for the wonderful service we received in getting this work completed. We were so pleased with what was done in the first piece of work, we did not bother to get comparative quotes for the work done more recently as we would have been surprised if there would have been any real difference in prices we may have obtained, and it was more important to ensure that we ended up with a job that we were pleased with. We knew we could rely on Pete and his crew to provide that for us.

I am not sure how many different members of your staff worked on our property in one way or another in getting the jobs finished, but without exception they were polite, always looked as if they knew what they were doing, and the level of pride they took in the work is reflected in what we feel is a really excellent environment they have helped create. Pete himself was wonderfully supportive and helpful right through, communicating reliably and making sure we received excellent service. In a number of ways things were done over and above what we were expecting.

It would be appreciated if you could pass on our thanks to everyone who played a part in getting this work completed, and make sure they are aware of how appreciative we are for what they did, and delighted with the results of the work because of their quality workmanship, and the pride they showed in what they were doing.

The staff at Kawakawa Police Station would like to take this opportunity to thank your firm for the work carried out at our station recently. The manner in which the work was undertaken was seen by us to be of a very high and professional standard and all the workers involved in this job were very courteous and mindful of our workplace.

Northland Cricket

Cobham Oval | Okara Drive | Whangarei

“From the outset we were impressed with the detailed planning and practical manner in which the project was managed.

The quality of the works has fully enhanced our surroundings.

We absolutely endorse Robinson Asphalts as a professional company who meet timelines and deliver high standards of workmanship. Thank you Robinson Asphalts for your professional manner in completing the project at Northland Cricket.

We would happily recommend Robinson Asphalts to anyone who requires excellence in the wide range of services offered”

Property Manager

Pompallier Catholic College

I would like to pass on my appreciation for the efficient and professional manner in which Robinson Asphalts undertook the work entrusted to your company. I and members of the senior management team were impressed with the fact that the work was completed without any disruption to everyday school activities.

Special thanks to Peter, Don and Russell for going the extra mile. A truly great job from a great workforce.  

President / Executive Chairperson

Age Concern

Any building project undertaken in the winter months incurs hold-ups due to inclement weather and we have experienced our share of these with our Age Concern project.

Observing your workmen going about their tasks regardless of any adverse conditions has really impressed us all. Your crew have consistently worked industriously and it's been a pleasure to see them getting on with the job.

I would like to commend your staff for the courtesy they have shown while on our property. It was apparent that they did not take for granted that they could use our facilities but asked before doing so. Their courtesy and industrious attitude was an excellent advertisement of your company.

On behalf of Age Concern Whangarei, I would appreciate it if you would pass on our thanks to all involved. Congratulations to you all! 

Elgin Edwards

Principal | Bay of Islands College

Not only were they highly efficient and cost effective the final product was outstanding and has been a source of pride for our whole community.

Robinson staff were positive, pleasant, and engaging with a consistent 'can do' attitude. Deadlines were met in spite of external variations. A special thanks to Brett and his team for their extra help and to Alan for his extra contributions.

Robinson Asphalts stand out at the top because of the excellent standard of work done, people skills, meeting deadlines and being cost effective.

Dr Grant Thompson

Musculoskeletal Physician

We contracted Robinson Asphalts to construct the car park for our new professional rooms. I was under the misconception that Asphalt and Concreting Contractors were casual in their approach. How wrong I was! Robinson Asphalts were extremely professional in their approach to the job, meticulous in planning and execution of the ground preparation and hotmixing of the car park. The staff were helpful and flexible to any requests for alterations made during the process. The firm and workers went beyond the contracted job description to ensure that the finished product was of the highest standard.

We were so impressed by the work done by Robinson Asphalts at our rooms, that we contacted them to prepare and concrete our home drive with aggregate. More recently, we contact Robinson Asphalts to concrete the driveway at work. On both occasions, we were thrilled with the final product and Robinson's commitment to a professional job - from pre-planning; through the execution of the work; and willingness to go that step further, beyond the contract, to ensure a top final creation.

I have no hesitation in recommending Robinson Asphalts for any driveway or car park job and would immediately contact them again if I have any need for such work.

Zeke Van der Kwaak

Thank you for your excellent service and professionalism with this job.

You have been awesome and very easy to work with and we are so happy with the final result and service we have received.

Glen Mitchell

I can’t thank you enough for your team’s efforts today. The boys turned up, all smiling and happy. They got stuck straight into it and did the job in about 50 minutes. They were both courteous and professional in both their skills and attitudes. I was amazed how they all knew exactly what was required and didn’t need instruction from the foreman.

From my experience it is unusual for a gang to be aware of both expectations and the economics involved in such work without any prompting. No customer could have been possibly unhappy with the way they conducted themselves today. You have every right to be proud of them and they are certainly a good advertisement for your company. It is nice to know that your guidance does pay off even when you are not on sight. Congratulations to you and your team. 

Chris Biddle

Kauri Coast Rec Society

It was a pleasure and a success to work with the Robinson Asphalts team to make our vision for the Sportsville Courts a reality, in particular, Alan Johnston the owner,  Tom Taylor the Project Manager and David Wright the Foreman who for most of the project I only knew as Tattoo - his expertise is huge. Throughout the building of the courts we had a huge amount of curve balls thrown at us, including changes in the geo tech from what was predicted, the lighting foundations design not fitting the ground conditions and numerous other challenges. Tattoo took all this in his stride, at our fortnightly site meetings he always had that big smile and kept us informed. An absolute treasure to work with. Robinson Asphalts should be very proud of the excellent outcome.

Downers laid the asphaltic concrete finish for the courts and their headman told Trevor Griffiths (Griffiths & Associates) that in twenty years working in the North they had never had a site so expertly and faultlessly prepared so well done Tom, Tattoo (David) and the Robinsons crew.

Marcus Foot

Managing Director | Te Mara Estate

I am writing to express our sincere thanks for the great job you did in completing all the necessary work to Te Mara Estate with regard to the rain gardens, pump station, roading, and driveways.

It was a pleasure to work with your team who were passionate about their work and clearly took pride in producing a great result for us.

The communication was regular, clear, and always solution focused.

Your team regularly displayed their depth of knowledge when finding practical solutions to some of the engineering challenges we were faced with.

Your team made this rather daunting project a relatively easy process and we are very grateful for the high quality workmanship and professionalism displayed from start to finish.

Howard Perry

Thanks for the opportunity to discuss the completed work at our property yesterday. As mentioned my wife and I are extremely pleased with the outcome of the project. 

We started with  a completely different concept in our minds, however, thanks to the advice and guidance from yourself and Richie we have ended up with a far better result than we could of imagined. 

The solution to our drainage and pooling issues works perfectly and the quality of workmanship and level of professionalism we observed throughout the project was first class.

All the guys who were on site were a pleasure to have around our home, expertly led by Richie and Russell and a credit to the company.

Brock Reti

Arc Security

Just an email to let you know what an awesome job Ian, Pat and Luke have done up here. The school principal - Liz and project manager - Kate have also asked to pass on their thanks for minimal interruption to the day to day school and the finished product. The workmanship and attention to detail from start to finish is second to none. Awesome job boys, thanks again.
