About us Company MD logo

Mike Downs Contracting Limited was incorporated 18 June 1999. The company specialises in the management of a team of experienced and competent contractors to produce high quality, well managed urban street renewal and land development contracts. We have successfully completed approximately 100 urban street renewal contracts for the Christchurch City Council, 18 subdivisions for private developers, major earthquake repairs on SCIRT contracts plus numerous driveways, tennis courts and commercial projects.

The Company has an excellent network of resources, working with over 30 subcontractors to complete multiple projects to the required safety, quality, environmental standard and the specified timeframe. Sub-contractors are selected according to the availability of resources, specific job requirements and individual track records.

In January 2013 Mike and Jo Downs purchased the assets and employed the staff of Earthworks and Paving Ltd, our main subcontractor for the previous 13 years. This allowed more control of the key resources required to deliver Mike Downs Contracting Ltd projects. Earthworks & Paving 2012 Limited is our key subcontractor and is managed by the sole director, Mike Downs. Less
