Our Journey

Background

We’ve been in business for almost 60 years. Our initial focus was commercial and residential construction before establishing an office and shop interior division in the early 1990s. All of this served as an ‘apprenticeship’ for what we are today. A leading commercial interior design and fitout company, proud of its Whangarei origins, where we are still active, headquartered in Auckland and working out of Wellington and Sydney. We’re a third-generation family business. This is a pedigree that provides us with a real sense of who we are and what we stand for. It has allowed us to build a culture that shapes not only how we do business, but also drives us to evolve and develop.

The how, why & what

Our difference

Our difference is the how, why, and what of our approach to doing business, the delivery of our services and the value we put on people.
We interweave culture, brand and personal wellbeing to create productive and affordable workplace communities.
We provide the quickest route from concept to construction, the most cost-effective solution and our in-house experts are with you each step of the way.
A lump sum contract is just that. There are no surprises. We welcome scrutiny and being held to account when there are client concerns.
These are activities that have immediate and future impacts. We address them through the consideration we give to environmental, economic and social wellbeing.
Our understanding of the New Zealand business environment and kiwi culture is comprehensive. But there is a lot we learn and adopt from what’s happening internationally to ensure we’re delivering the very latest in best practice.
We’re great listeners. From a first conversation we look to connect and build rapport. This gives a framework for building relationships and understanding needs.
