Dormer Construction

About Us

Dormer Construction Limited (DCL) is a drainage civil engineering company who constructs earth works, pipelines and other civil works. They specialize in difficult construction tasks, especially deep, wet and challenging pipelines.

The company was founded by Peter E. Dormer, sole owner and director of the company, in 1994 when he left school at the age of 17. From a one man business the company has grown not only in size but in the regard of its peers and the public. Standing out from other construction companies in Christchurch, its good reputation spurs from its flawless record of never finishing a job late and always within budget. Dormer Construction Ltd takes pride in the fact that every job signed off, has a standard of workmanship that is beyond reproach and they have proven it.

DCL has proved itself time and again by producing quality jobs every time. This was ratified when DCL won the overall prize of ‘Canterbury Contractor of the Year’ at the prestigious 2011 (and previously at the 2008) “New Zealand Federation of Contractors, Canterbury Branch Construction Awards”. This award and other category awards won at this event are the dividends for the conscientious work of Peter Dormer and his staff.

In past years DCL have also won ‘Most Progressive Company’, ‘Sub-contractor of the Year’, Contractor of the Year ‘Environmental Award’, ‘Image Award’, ‘Underground Services Award’ and various other project awards. These awards show the judges recognised Dormer Construction Ltd’s ability to work efficiently and reliably on a variety of projects from working as a sub contractor to working in challenging environmentally sensitive environments.

To sum up, at Dormer Construction Ltd, everything is done right first time every time, to a high standard. Dormer Construction Ltd has the highest regard for the client’s wishes whilst always maintaining excellent environmental and safety practices.
