What our clients say about us

Northcote College, Auckland

“Northcote College engaged Watershed to do a Condition Assessment and review of the heated swimming pool and plant in 2015. They then successfully managed a refurbishment of the pool over the summer break of 2015/16 to the value of almost $300,000. They also ran a tender for the pool management over GETS which was then awarded to Belgravia Leisure. The pool project was very successfully managed on time and to budget.
When we came to do our 5YA for July 2016 we didn’t hesitate to use Watershed. David Major of Watershed was professional and efficient to work with. He worked closely with the school’s project manager and preferred contractors to obtain historical information and planned works which he managed to put into the Ministry’s templates. He also ensured the condition assessment reports on the property were completed satisfactorily. David had to juggle the requirements of the Ministry, funding constraints and the never-ending wishlist of the college to put together a 5YA which was eventually signed off by the Ministry – no easy task indeed. I have found Watershed to be helpful and also available for advice after the projects have been completed – very good after sales service.”

Puni School, Pukekohe

“We have been very impressed with Watershed Group and the support, advice, consultation and facilitation for our school around our property needs. They are proactive and have up-to-date knowledge of the unique requirements of the school context. I have willingly recommended them when other principals have inquired about property consultants. We have been lucky enough to be working with David Major; who has been an amazing advocate for our school. I would have no hesitation for recommending them.”

Whanganui District Council

“The Whanganui District Council recently engaged Watershed as both Consultants and Project Managers for the refurbishment of pools in a 100 year old outdoor swimming facility. Totally undaunted by the age and condition of the complex, Kris embraced the project and I cannot speak highly enough of the professionalism with all dealings from him and all the Watershed team. There was huge pressure on delivering a time critical outcome and this was achieved also within budget. I would thoroughly recommend Watershed to any prospective client. Thanks Kris and team.”

St Paul’s College, Auckland

“Watershed has been the project manager of a huge $9 million project at St Paul’s College with the construction of middle school classrooms and an administration building. The complexity of the project has not impacted on the day to day operations of the college in any way. I have been impressed with the communication culture which have sorted out the many and varied issues that inevitably arise in any project. Vicki Russell has been an excellent project leader in making this construction project happen”
