Tim is an Architectural Designer with a passion for residential design.
“There is a real skill in designing homes that exceed the clients’ expectations and that are affordable. How many times have you heard of architects plans being priced for construction and resulting in massive budget blowouts?” asks Tim.
Tim qualified in New Zealand and has worked as an Architectural Designer for 22 years, including here at home, in the United Kingdom and Australia. This diverse work experience enables Tim to offer architectural design solutions to meet individual architectural styles preferred by his clients. Tim believes the main design focus for a home is providing spaces that are light, warm and reflect the clients’ lifestyle.
“Each home is individually designed to meet the clients design brief, lifestyle and budget. I am constantly balancing best design versus cost, ensuring the project is feasible for our clients. It’s usually the most practical solution that gets the best result,” says Tim.
Brad has been driving the cogs in the New Zealand construction industry for more than 20 years, on-site, off-site, main contractor, subcontractor and client side engagements. A building apprenticeship was Brad’s springboard into a quantity surveying career.
“It was the perfect start to my career as a quantity surveyor because my knowledge and understanding isn’t just a book read learning – I’ve been there and worked on the tools,” says Brad.
It’s this technical background that has helped make Brad one of the foremost experts in his field, and one that qualifies him very well to be helping people achieve the best outcomes from their building projects. Brad has worked with and continues to consult to leading home building companies, commercial contractors, developers and subcontractors giving him an innate understanding to all aspects of construction industry. With a focus to staying current and continued development Brad continues to engage with all facets of the industry.
“Construction knowledge, project management, procurement, building costs, building contract agreements – we are here as your advocate,” says Brad.
