I would like to thank the staff that made the job seem effortless.  From the reception lady who took the details, then rang to bring the job forward, to Wayne Chapman & Jared who completed the work with professionalism. They were most helpful when asked to attend to two other things which I only thought about after the initial booking.  Seeing the company taking such a small job seriously would mean I have no hesitation in recommending Glenn Roberts Electrical to anyone regardless of how big the job might be.   Thank you again.

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.

During the Quin Dental build/renovation we found the Glenn Roberts Electrical team to be accommodating and professional.  The staff are all helpful, nothing was a problem, communication was excellent,procedures explained and options given.  We didn’t feel rushed or that we were just another customer.

Well done to the team!

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.


We have been involved in a number of projects with Glenn Roberts Electrical since Josh and Nic took over the business, 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.  Each project has different challenges whether it be programme, budget or technical, leaving very little room for error.  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.

In recent years Glenn Roberts Electrical have attended to a growing number of general electrical repair requirements on a wide range of equipment, and have completed a number of new installations at the Halifax Street East campus of the Cawthron Institute.

The electricians and technicians who have responded to our calls have done so promptly and professionally.   They have developed an understanding of the time critical processes we use in which electricity is the major component.   Glenn Roberts Electrical have demonstrated an appreciation of our unique business and we enjoy an excellent working relationship with them.


I am writing on behalf of Nelson City Council to thank you and your team at Glenn Roberts Electrical for the huge amount of work undertaken to prepare and deliver the three Rugby World Cup 2011 matches in Nelson. There is no doubt that the matches and accompanying events were very successful and that success is due to the contributions made by dedicated people such as yourselves going the extra mile to facilitate the tournament.

Your expertise with lighting, heating, generators and the provision of power outlets was invaluable. You and your staff have shown a real devotion to ensuring that the venue met the exacting standards required for the Rugby World Cup 2011 tournament especially in terms of emergency power generation and the ability for the sport lighting to re-strike within set timeframe. The leadership that you have shown in ensuring that these obligations were met was exemplary and greatly appreciated. Feedback from Nelson City Council and Rugby New Zealand 2011 Ltd staff highlighted the excellent working relationship that was established during the delivery of the tournament in Nelson which made dealing with all the complexities of Rugby World Cup 2011 a lot easier.

We have had nothing but praise from all quarters on the professionalism of your team, so please do pass on our thanks to all involved.

Tahunanui School are very grateful to Glenn Roberts Electrical for their support of our school.  We have recently purchased a new set of sports uniforms with their help, and they are very generous with their time and assistance with our school gala.

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.

Glenn Roberts Electrical have been the electrical contractor on many Arthouse Architecture projects over the years and more recently a large private residence in Nelson and the Saxton Oval Pavilion.  Both projects required an exceptionally high level of skill and commitment from the Glenn Roberts team to achieve the level of finish expected.  On both occasions they have excelled in this due to a well organised team with good communication skills and ability to think ahead.  Throughout these projects the whole team at Glenn Roberts have been a pleasure to work with maintaining good relationships with the client, consultants and other trades onsite.

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.

Recently we built our new home in Redwood Valley, Nelson and decided to use LED lighting throughout the entire home . Glenn and his team worked in closely with our other contractors, especially in the kitchen and media room areas.  A great deal of time was spent getting the lighting just right to make features of our paintings and the shelving in the lounge area. We have been very happy with the end result.  We can recommend them to anyone.

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.

With 6 Radio Brands coming out of the one building – and with MORE FM as the Civil Defence Radio Station for the region – when the lights go out in the city, the power needs to stay on at Fifeshire House.  So, when we identified stability issues with our emergency electricity backup  system we put the call in to Glenn Roberts Electrical.  They’ve responded brilliantly, at times in the ugly hours of the night, to some challenging situations. All throughout they have consulted and worked with our Engineering Department to ensure we get the power we need to stay on-the-air. Glenn Roberts Electrical deserve their reputation and their 20th anniversary celebration!

Josh and the boys provided us with great service throughout the South Island Masters Games in Nelson. Nothing was a problem to them and they were able to find solutions to all the challenges we had in setting up the Games Village power supply and connections for all our service providers. When there was a problem they were on site very promptly and dealt with it quickly. Very capable and very professional, thanks guys, couldn’t have staged the Games without you.
