What our clients say

Melray Electric were employed as the lead electrical sub-contractor to main contractor, Southbase Construction. Their scope of work was extensive and included full electrical installation of this public building from racks and communications rooms to structured cabling and installation of the MLEX in-floor power and data containment system. With the project objective being 'a building of civic quality', Melray completed the work to an exceptionally high standard and importantly, safely.

Matt Cummins, Senior Project Manager
Christchurch City Council

Melray excelled in all aspects including juggling the daily complexities of getting the work done safely to a high standard on time, while at the same time accommodating diverse hospital operational needs. Brilliant people, doing brilliant work!

Gerard Carpinter, Facility Manager
St George’s Hospital

Melray's absolute dedication to quality and several innovative installation solutions, as well as a strong commitment to health and safety, were always evident whilst we undertook our construction observation responsibilities. The completed electrical services installation, which contributes significantly to the project as a whole, is something which Powell Fenwick and Melray Electric are rightly proud of.

Tim White, Project Lead Electrical Engineer
Powell Fenwick

During the project it was a pleasure to work with Melray Electric who carried out electrical installation for the base build works, and for Beca's and ANZ's tenancies. At all times, their on-site staff had a positive attitude, were easy to work with, professional, and we were impressed with their quality of work.

Bruce Bishop, Senior Electrical Design Engineer

From the first meeting, we became aware that Melray Electric had done their homework and were enthusiastic about the installation, and the importance the feature light played for the overall space. While this was the first time I had worked with Melray I was immediately filled with confidence, through their pro-active approachh when discussing the logistics of how we were going to install the 3000-fittings. This positive and meaningful input from Melray Electric meant that the issues we encountered during the process were all resolved quickly and successfully.

The Project Office

The finished product is a testament to Melray's highly competent quality staff, their positive outlook and their committment to doing whatever it took to get the job done on time. I look forward to the opportunity to working with them again in the future.
