Structural Design

When you’re making any improvements that involves the stability of a building, you’ll likely need a structural engineer who will provide both structural drawings and calculations. These are necessary documents which the building contractor and architect can then use.

Building Services or Civil Engineering

Civil engineers are in charge of designing, planning and building any infrastructure a site might need. This includes everything from developing the site’s foundation, to supplying the necessary resources and skills needed to undertake construction.

One of our goals is to always create an office space that our clients and future occupants feel comfortable in.

When it comes to office spaces, we want to make sure that all of our customer’s needs are addressed. 

One of our goals is to always create a space that our clients and future occupants feel comfortable in. We do this by looking at ways to improve their environments. 

This means addressing some key issues that can frustrate individuals such as not getting enough natural light, dealing with bright lights, or humidity levels. 

Other improvements may include adjusting the airflow within the space as far as circulating fresh air from outside is concerned, and making sure that the occupants’ immediate environment is spotless so that it makes for a better experience for them overall.

That also includes design and architecture that is in line with the existing NZ Building Code and Fire Regulations to ensure there are greater chances of getting building consent in a timely manner.
