As the most awarded building company in the Wellington Region, David Reid Homes Kapiti / Wellington have made a point of delivering custom designed homes of the highest standards.
Director Tim Sunderland says many of their clients don’t initially realise that there is a company with the ability to manage the whole process from initial designs through to completion.
“When they come and see us and they get an understanding that we can actually handle the whole thing, that’s a bit of a revelation to a lot of our clients,” he says.
The focus for Tim and the team is to create homes which are bespoke to client needs and vision.
“Being a building company, we have got a large range of standard plans, but in saying that, often they get used as a starting point and form part of the initial brief.
“Typically speaking, 95% of the time we’re designing a new home from scratch for you, for your site, for your views, for the wind, or for whatever the elements are on your site,” Tim says.
David Reid Homes Kapiti / Wellington client coordinator Sharlyn Fraser says stress of a design and build is reduced by their ability to deal with the technical side of the process.
“In terms of dealing with council, you don’t need to worry about that at all. We take that on for you, we submit all the necessary information and we answer all their questions, we take it right through until you’ve got your building consent.”
Once consent is granted, Sharalyn puts clients in touch with interior designers for guidance on kitchens, bathrooms, colours and textures, while the build is managed by the David Reid team.
“We’re a really reliable way to go through the design and build process; there’s a lot of factors involved from the initial site inspection all the way through to actually delivering a home and we control the whole process, we can step you through that,” Tim says.
Initial planning phases of the build also allows the team to put a fixed price on the build in the form of a fixed-price contract, allowing clients to know the cost of their dream from the start.
The David Reid Homes Kapiti Showhome is open Monday to Friday and Sunday from 1pm to 3pm at 22 Ferndale Drive. You can also get in touch with them online, or phone 04 904 5959.
