Successful projects require excellent communication and earned trust between clients, designers, consultants and builders. Our approach is friendly and personable, whilst our work demonstrates sensitivity and subtlety in design.
We believe that steel-framing represents the best solution for our clients. Steel is a straight an exact product that has a high strength-to-weight ratio gives it excellent capabilities, providing more design freedoms. Plus the stability of steel means no contraction or expansion with moisture changes, so frames won't warp, twist, sag or shrink, eliminating many of the maintenance issues that create builder call-backs.
All of our builds are aligned to the approved industry codes /regulations. Steel-framing has standards and documents that form part of the New Zealand building codes.
