Glenn Obery and his team at The Tile People were engaged by Fletcher Construction to carry out floor and wall tiling works on the $150M Auckland University Medical School redevelopment project. Of particular note was the large atrium foyer within the new Boyle building which was specified with high quality stone floor tiles. The challenge being to lay the stone in the most trafficked area of the building right in the busiest final weeks of the project. Glenn’s team of skilled tradesmen took to the challenge and worked numerous night shifts, completing areas and protecting ahead of the following days activities. Thanks to their good planning, cooperation and great effort the end result was a quality finish, on time and with no disruption to the other building trades.

Baldasso Cortese has been working with The Tile People and in particular Kelvin Obery for over 10 years. We have always found them to be responsive, proactive and professional in all their dealings with our company.
The Tile People deal in quality products and have the technical expertise to back it up. The tiled cladding facades in particular have a timeless quality to them and have the added benefit of low maintenance and environmental sustainability.
I have no hesitation in recommending The Tile People to other architects, builders and project managers.

We recently aligned our residential renovation company with The Tile People and have found their services to be invaluable to our success.
Having a tile company that offers a full service package, right from great sales people and product through to water proofing, tile laying and after sales service makes my job exceptionally easy.
I can highly recommended using The Tile People for any project you may be considering.

The floor design was very complex requiring a number of colours from the same tile range, with the help of The Tile People we selected the polished Santa Margherita/Marble conglomerate at an early stage of the project to ensure delivery to the site complied with the construction programme. They also assisted in advising on installation specifications for adhesive and grout. We were also very impressed with the very high standard of workmanship, The Tile People kept a high level of overview of their installers to achieve outstanding results.
