What Our Customers Have To Say About Us

During the Quin Dental build/renovation we found the Glenn Roberts Electrical team to be accommodating and professional.

The staff are all helpful, nothing was a problem, communication was excellent,procedures explained and options given.  We didn’t feel rushed or that we were just another customer.

Well done to the team.

Linda Lucre, Practice ManagerQuin Dental

The Suter Art Gallery uses a variety of lighting throughout its building, from specialist exhibition track lighting; lighting for ambiance including uplighting and spotlighting architectural features; lighting for way-finding, working and safety; outdoor lighting.   The KNX system allows the lighting to be selectively turned on and off using a tablet with just a finger swipe and touch onto simple graphics.   I was told we would have had row upon row of switches had we not got KNX control, instead we have 3 very discrete devices controlling several hundred lights and the sun blinds in the entrance lobby – which makes things very easy to use.


We have been involved in a number of projects with Glenn Roberts Electrical since Josh and Nic took over the business, the first of which was the Saxton Oval Pavilion.  Since then we have worked together on a variety of commercial and high-end residential and rest-home projects.  Each project has different challenges whether it be programme, budget or technical, leaving very little room for error.  All of the team at Glenn Roberts Electrical have been professional and approachable and we have worked together to deliver some fantastic results. Their ability to perform to a high standard on site, but also provide design solutions and manage costs ensures that they are an electrical firm of choice for us as a main contractor. The site foreman that we have worked with have been the highest quality and their input during projects has been invaluable in their success. Glenn Roberts Electrical has a very good communication channels that allows decisions to be made quickly.

I have no hesitation in recommending Glenn Roberts Electrical for projects on any scale and would definitely continue to use them for upcoming projects.

Justin Candish - Managing DirectorScott Construction Ltd

GRE were the electrical contractor on our house build in Mapua. Their input was one of the highlights of the build process. They provided great input on the design of all of the electrical systems covering lighting, PV, automation and general power and showed patience while we figured out our final requirements with other contractors. On the job they were courteous, on time, kept us informed, and did what they said they would do. We love the outcome and would recommend the GRE team to others.

It was a pleasure to have the competent staff of Glenn Roberts Electrical on board, ensuring that every aspect of their part complied with and exceeded the expectations of both the client and us.  This job was successfully completed on time and to budget.  We have found Glenn Roberts Electrical to be very professional in their approach. They were always cooperative and helpful in solving problems, and the “can-do”attitude of Josh Roberts and his team are a credit to the Electrical trade.

Redbox Architects Ltd have worked with Glenn Roberts Electrical on a number of projects. The most recent was my own new family home in Monaco, Nelson. The lighting was seen as a key element of the design, and was used to accentuate the architecture. We wanted an electrical firm that would take care on the installation and provide a well finished job. Glenn and his team did this without hassle and I can recommend them to other clients.
