The Dunedin Fireplace operated as The Fireplace for over 35 years until 2010 when it became locally owned and operated by Dunedin couple, Robbie and Pam Gardiner.
Robbie had managed The Fireplace in Dunedin over this period of time and as their Regional Technical Manager so it was an easy move for him to make, particularly being a born and bred Dunedinite. Having worked in this role since The Fireplace's inception also means that the wealth of knowledge and experience he provides is vast - dealing with customers, architects, project managers - the process is made easy because of the expertise and professionalism provided.
This also has meant that along with The Fireplace's exclusive wood and gas, we are the premier agent for Escea gas fires, exclusive agents for Warmington, Gazco, Studio, Firenzo, Ethos, Pyroclassic, Wagener Stoves, Traegar Smokers and Ziegler and Brown BBQs and agents for Metro, Masport, Woodsman, Kent, Nectre and Bosca woodfires along with Nobo Electric Panel Heaters.
The Dunedin Fireplace offers a friendly and professional service, they are able to provide the complete package from design to building consent to installation - just sit back and relax and let them do it all for you.
I purchased a heater from the Fireplace a couple of days before lockdown to keep my at-home office warm and wow! It’s been amazing! I wouldn’t have made it through working from home without it. Thanks so much for all the help Pam and Robbie - very friendly and efficient.
Knowledgeable staff and a good range.
Staff were so helpful. Multiple display items and lots of information.
Such a great team the installers had to create a metal box for the fire to fit into my villa chimney and it is a wonderful job. Many thanks to all involved. Oh, and the fire is just glorious.
Very helpful staff.
Great fire. No problems with the Fireplace as a business, but I have to say in my opinion the workmanship on the sub-contracted installation was average. The Fireplace was quick to apologise and the issue was resolved by mutual agreement.
Great team with a huge range of product to choose from. Very helpful an knowledgeable. Thanks heaps.
To all the team at The Fireplace Company...We are absolutely delighted with our new Ferva Fire installed at the beginning of the year...Very professional from start to finish...I would have no hesitation in recommending Robbie, Pam and the team to anyone looking to install a new fire...Great job everyone.
At the end of May, we accepted a quote for a Bannockburn wood burner which could be installed with a black steel custom surround keeping the existing wooden surround/retiling the hearth and fitting a three-sided black steel border.
We wanted to keep the historical character of the villa. Only one installer was recommended to do the work to the standard required so together with the fitting into his schedule and Dunedin CC's somewhat slow process of issuing consents and final inspection for code of compliance certificate, the work was not completed until early July.
However, the work was excellent and the tenants love the huge amount of heat it produces from less wood.
