- Design & Build
Our relationship with Lanta spans over 4 years and 2 retail fit outs for our fine wine superstores. Both builds were extensive and together with a brand change we were creating our new superstores to establish our brand as the future of wine retailing. This was a very important step towards our success and Lanta took time to understand our business and build our sites.
Lanta have knowledgeable and professional staff to provide strong communication, meeting budgeted requirements and delivering the project within our desired timelines. Lanta were conscious of our high expectations and continued to find ways to meet them. I recommend the team from Lanta and will work with them again in the future.
The Fine Wine Delivery Co
We engaged the Lanta team to fit out our new waterfront office on Princess Wharf. We had a concrete shell to work with, and a vision of an office that showcased our values, fit well into the wharf precient while being a functional workspace for our team. We wanted this all to take place in a very tight timeline and the Lanta team made it happen.
They combined their experience, knowledge and insight to help us achieve our goal. Their team were professional, communicated well with regular meetings at the site, and kept us up to date on progress. They also have a fantastic team of sub-contractors who delivered an excellent service throughout the build process. Having an experienced project manager on site also ensured that the build stayed on track and that the office was finished to a high standard. We would highly recommend the Lanta team for any build project, large or small. A big thanks to all those involved!

Macau Investments engaged Lanta Interiors and Construction in the final quarter of 2014, to undertake extensive re development works on one of our properties situated in Takapuna;
These works included not only the re development but the partial demolition of the existing building and negotiating with the existing tenants with regards to relocation of their businesses during the construction period.
Lanta commenced works in the second quarter of 2015 which was based on a design and construct contract for the property with the intention of increasing the office area by an additional 50%. Major initial works included extensive demolition and piling. With the location of the site being in close proximity to other operating businesses Lanta excelled in mitigating any stress to the locally operated businesses around the site that may have been affected.
Major construction was completed on time in the third quarter of 2016, which also included various floor fit out works and alterations based on tenant requests. Should we undertake any further developments Ross and Lanta would be my first point of call, furthermore if I was asked to recommend anyone for any similar works I would without hesitation point them in the direction of Ross and Dave.
I found them and their staff to be professional, diligent and above all honest and reputable. This potentially difficult project was made so much easier having Lanta on-board.
Triumph Capital engaged Lanta Interiors and Construction in 2015/16 to undertake a major redevelopment of two existing, run down office buildings.
The works involved; stripping back what was a 1960’s office/warehouse and a late 80’s office building to the bare bones, installing new curtain wall facades, structurally upgrading them both and then joining them together. The end vision was to have one large high spec office building to attract good tenants.
Half way through the process we managed to secure a large occupier for the majority of the building. The occupier had some very demanding visions of their own for the fit-out and decided to engage external contractors to do their fit-out work. To help save costs and time for the tenant we decided to integrate the fit-out with the original basebuild. This could have caused a lot of issues with two different contractors on site and integrating all the services from what was a simple basebuild into what became an extensive fit-out for a large creative tenant, however Lanta dug in and got the job done. This was also done in what most construction companies would consider an impossible time frame.
I can honestly say that I don’t know how I would have completed this project without their extensive knowledge and willingness to help.
Ross or Dave would turn up to most of the weekly PCG meetings and even answer the phone on the weekend when I had some crazy idea or the need for some advice.
Their honesty and willingness to help solve issues as a team is what separates them from the others. I would have absolutely no problem recommending Dave, Ross and the Lanta team.
Without a second thought I have recently engaged them to build another large office building. Feel free to call me for a verbal reference.
Triumph Capital Limited
It was late 2015 when we engaged a number of different design construction companies to look at designing and completing our office fit-out in Ellerslie, Auckland. We received multiple proposals but after short consideration decided to proceed with Lanta.
From the outset we found Dave, Ross and the Team at Lanta to be highly professional, clear in their communications and very understanding of the local and global influences on design that we faced. They understood the brief and were able to quickly put this into a clear plan for us to move forward with. The team continued this level of professionalism and service throughout the job. As well as this, and importantly, Lanta were able to deliver the required result within the budget set.
Overall, we were extremely satisfied with the results and would highly recommend the Lanta team to anyone looking for a great design construction partner.
Country Manager – New Zealand
The whole team at Lanta have been outstanding throughout our experience of the design and build of our organic food store and café in Takapuna. Their proposal was one of five we received and carefully considered, and I have no doubt we made the right choice.
From the empty concrete shell with which we started, to the stunning industrial, modern, edgy space we have created, Lanta made it their mission to understand our brief and deliver this on time and on budget – which they did superbly. They were professional, patient, reliable, flexible and friendly and engaged contractors who were all of this as well. Nothing seemed too difficult, it was a complete “can do” approach to everything we faced together and the workmanship is of the highest quality.
We’re thrilled with the end result and with the number of “wow”s exclaimed when people walk through our doors, it would seem that our customers are equally as impressed! Our intention is to open further stores throughout New Zealand and Ross will be the first phone call I make when we have a site in mind.
