Purchasing a house
We recommend that before going un-conditional on the purchase of an existing house, that a L.I.M. report be obtained from Council, and a prepurchase report be commissioned to identify any problem areas with the house.  We recommend Bill Cartwright at Citywide Building Consultants Ltd for such a report, phone (09) 845 8512


Designing alterations and additions
Our registered architect will work closely with you to design renovations that meet your needs, and in compliance with Council planning controls. Our designs aim to retain the character of the existing house, while making optimal use of available space.  You may visualise your proposed home with our 3D computerised designs in colour. Once the design is finalised, we apply to Council for a resource consent application if required.


Building contract
We give you an accurate quote for the construction of your house.  Our quote is for the entire job, with no hidden extras, and the price is guaranteed not to go up, unless you make changes to the plans or specifications.


Owner's participation
We see the building process as a cooperative working relationship between designer, builder and client to achieve the desired result.  To this end we are happy to work with you, your selected suppliers and sub-contractors should you so choose.


We take care of the Building Consent and all materials, sub-contractors and supervision. Regular inspections by Council inspectors ensures construction is in accordance with the Building Code. We continue to offer you personal service throughout construction, and are willing to build to whichever stage you choose.


Final inspection
At the completion of construction we will ensure everything has been done satisfactorily. Upon final completion the building inspector makes a final inspection and issues a 'code compliance certificate'.
