Company Director and Owner
Alvin is the proud owner & company director of Certified Home Extensions. His primary responsibility is working with you from design to construction to ensure that the process remains stress-free and runs as smoothly as possible.
There is nothing that he works harder for than the satisfaction of handing over a key to happy clients after completing another successful extension, renovation or new build.
When he is not on site or on the telephone speaking with clients and managing subcontractors, you can usually find him in the office compiling detailed action plans that will show you every component that makes up your completed dream home.
Other than running around after his four adorable children Makayla, Sofia, Damien and Oakley or spending time with his lovely wife Annalise, his passion is to help you to create a home that you and your family can enjoy for decades into the future.
Client Development Manager
Emily is the vivacious voice behind the phone at Certified Home Extensions. Full of vim and vigour there is nothing she loves more than having a good natter with you about your dream home and why we are best qualified to help you make it a reality.
As you proceed from design to construction, Emily will support you every step of the way, minimizing your stress levels and making sure you remain updated and informed about exactly what is happening with your project.
When she is not speaking with clients, you can find her busy as a bee marketing Certified Home Extensions. She makes sure that as many people as possible are aware of our superior reputation as the extension and renovation specialists.
In her spare time, she enjoys socializing, shopping, spending time with her loved ones including ratbag cats Dude & Bro and sitting (preferably somewhere sunny with a soppy romance).
Nakul has previously had 12+ years of project management for several companies including event production manager and motorcycle tour facilitator. During this time he gained extensive people, logistics, and event management experience,
Despite his extensive event management background, Nakul found the satisfaction of seeing a home transformed from old to new or little to big very appealing, so he decided to seek a construction management qualification at MIT so he could be part of this process.
When Nakul is not on-site observing the practical technicalities of extension & renovation projects, he is hard at work in the office, active behind the scenes to make sure that our current projects are transitioning smoothly. He enjoys dabbling with technology, and as a result, he is the resident CHE tech wiz who keeps Co-Construct our project management software humming.
Outside of work hours, Nakul enjoys spending time with his wife Vibha, dabbling in do-it-yourself projects, riding his motorcycle around Auckland’s back roads, researching and planning trips abroad and scouring the internet for his next motorcycle.
