What Our Customers Have To Say About Us

We have been involved in a number of projects with Glenn Roberts Electrical, 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.  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.

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.


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.

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.

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.

As an interior stylist, I have very specific ideas and always look to the fresh and innovative. Working with Glenn Roberts both in the planning stages and construction of the project was refreshing in that my ideas and attention to detail was respected, and solution based attitude was applied throughout the process. I will certainly be working with the Glenn Roberts team again.
