Nelson & Tasman Building Designer

We wish we had a dollar for every time a client has come to us with a set of plans they have had drawn up by an architect and have fallen in love with. The plans have been through the council.

They’ve started contacting builders for a price and have quickly realised it will be double their budget! This happens all the time because, believe it or not, the architect and the builder have never spoken!

Why choose us?

A Building Designer fulfils the same role as an architect without being on the NZ Registered Architects Register. Most clients find that paying an hourly rate rather than a percentage cost of the job provides them with better value for money.

Our Building Design work is billable on an hourly basis, and if you use our company for the construction work we will very happily rebate a portion of his rate back to you.

In addition to submitting plans to Council for Building Permits, our designer is also able to file Resource Consent Applications and in each case follow the process through to Code Compliance Certificate issuance Resource Consent approval.
