Nestled among the olive groves of Bombay’s Simunovich Estate lies not just one, but two projects we have been honoured to turn our hands to. In 2005 we transformed the original main homestead on the estate to what it is today - Bracu, an elegant fine dining restaurant. We stripped a majority of the interior, extended it and replaced old materials with new. In some cases we recycled old materials like the dark timber flooring, paying respect to the homestead’s original character. In 2010 we were also contracted to construct an exclusive event centre on the estate, which has now grown to become a prominent wedding venue nationwide.

We chose Haven New Zealand to build our restaurant - Bracu on the Estate. Our decision was rewarded all the way through the progress of the build with their professionalism and attention to detail.

Their workmanship was professional and very time managed. There was a deadline that Haven had been instructed of and the team accomplished this accordingly.

We have since had Haven build an extension onto Bracu, which again was completed to deadline without hiccups.

We would recommend Haven New Zealand without hesitation to any one who is looking at building, whether it be a home or business premises we are sure you won’t be disappointed.
