Design and Build Services
If you are planning a major renovation or home extension, working with a design and build specialist can save you time and money, whilst giving you peace of mind that the project is being well managed at every stage. We work with clients from the outset, discussing inital ideas and gaining concept drawings, so you know what the end result will look like (and cost!) at the early stages. We can help you avoid getting too far ahead with architect plans that might not fit your budget, and once you are happy with the design stage, we will complete all the building work, managing all of the subtrades and labour, so you can relax knowing everything is being taken care of.
Many homeowners want to improve the aesthetics of their home and add value to their property. Installing a new kitchen
is often a great way to achieve both results. As a professional renovations company we have extensive experience in both kitchen
design and installation. Whether you want to change the layout, knock through a wall to gain a bigger space, or simply makeover the existing room, we can help. Working with you through the design options, so that you can acheive the look and finish you desire, that also works with your existing home, is what we do best.
Home Additions and Extensions
Extending your home to add bedrooms or expand your living areas usually offers a great return on investment. With any major project, we can help you through every stage, from deciding on the best layout and design options to suit your home, to gaining building design plans and council consents. Choosing a specialist builder for your home extension can make the whole project run more smoothly and efficiently. Smith & Sons Taranaki offer high levels of experience in residential building as well as established processes for all elements of your home extension project.

Our Simple 3 Step Renovation Process
Rather than separately employing the services of an architect, engineer and building company, we manage the entire process, including gaining appropriate building consents, from start to finish for you.
Design: This is where we sit and talk with you, listen and understand what you want and need in your renovation. From no idea of what you want, to a design scribbled on a napkin, we can help. We create concept drawings and ensure you are happy with the design, and that the work will be within your budget.
Plan: We complete all architectural and design plans and engineers drawings, plus all council and city approvals. We also map out your renovation construction schedule to fit around you and your lifestyle.
Construct: This is where the fun begins as our team of expert builders and tradespeople bring your dreams to life. With one point of contact throughout the entire renovation process, you will be kept up to date.
