What people have to say about us


Patton Engineering was the main mechanical contractor for Ovivo on the Waste Water Treatment Plant Upgrade at Pan Pac. The quality of workmanship both on site and with pre-fabricated materials was outstanding. Their overall Project Team was knowledgeable, hard working, trustworthy, and a huge asset to Ovivo’s ability to meet a very tight project schedule.

 I would like to thank the team at Patton Engineering for the outstanding service during the Dryer 1 Part Replacement Project. All services including the safety systems, communication and shift hand over systems were delivered to a very high standard despite the very tight time frames.
I look forward to the challenge of the next stage of the replacement.

 I would personally like to thank you and your team for your outstanding efforts and commitment to the FMG project. My team have advised me Patton Engineering staff were professional and knowledgeable, and the management of the build was excellent. (The words my team actually used were “awesome”, “super-easy to deal with” and “realistically priced.”) We genuinely look forward to working with you again and have no hesitation in recommending Patton Engineering Limited.

As a result of our involvement in the Hawkes Bay Opera House Opening Roof project; Hastings Mayor Lawrence Yule said a worldwide search for an engineering firm that could construct the roof eventually led the council back to its own district. “It turns out that, right on our doorstep we have some of the best brains, the best engineering and the best technology in the world. The architects had all the ideas and these guys transformed them into reality. It had to work but it had to look good too.

– Lawrence Yule, Mayor of Hastings
Hawke's Bay Opera House

Patton did a great job right from early on in the planning and pricing stages. They had lots of good ideas, suggestions and were able to turn these into reality once the contract commenced.

I would recommend Patton Engineering for any major (and minor) installation work, always accommodating and professional. They will get the job done on time.
