SMC Design Studio

Log Cabins


Over the years our team participated in projects for investors and developers delivering millions of square feet of premium workspace solutions for a variety of corporate, business and government organisations looking to expand their operations with warehouses, factories and offices.  and occupiers in Canterbury. Our work is focused on warehousing, light commercial, offices and mixed-use buildings and includes new build and refurbishment projects, including heritage buildings, which often present the most interesting engineering challenges.

We strive to provide optimal space that not only enhances work output but also results in greater ROI (return on investment) compared to traditional office setups.

Energy Efficiency, Passive House

Our goal is to create a building that is sensitive to natural resources and the environment. Learn more about what Passive House does here.

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.
