RESIDENTIAL RENOVATION SERVICES.
Design & Planning
We contract kitchen designers, landscape designers, full home renovation draftsmen, and engineers to assist with any type of indoor or outdoor design requirements you may need.
Complete & Partial House Renovations
We have completed many full home renovations and love the challenges they present. We thrive on moving walls, doorways and reconfigure spaces to make a home more open and functional.
We design and build every type of kitchen, from small rental home kitchens to full galley kitchens with separate butlers pantries. The possibilities are endless!
A great way to update any home is with a bathroom renovation. Our tradespeople make it easy to transform an old, outdated bathroom into a modern, clean and welcoming space. From the shower options to the tiling and lighting, we have it covered.
Additions & Extensions
Adding onto an existing home is not always easy. We pride ourselves on making additions look like they are part of the original structure. Design and execution are critical to a successful addition.
Roof & Window Replacement
Old roofing and single pane glass windows are extremely inefficient. We can help make your home warmer and dryer by replacing roofs and ceiling insulation and replacing old windows with new double pane PVC or aluminum windows.
Converting a garage into another room is a great way to minimize the costs of adding to a home. We have simple, cost-effective solutions for any garage conversion.

"Paul & Fitz Consulting project managed my commercial building repair/upgrade post-earthquake in Christchurch. I am extremely happy with the final result. Paul was very professional in his approach & always kept me informed during the project. He showed great skill in liaising with his tradespeople & excellent knowledge of the code compliance issues that are often quite complex. I highly recommend Paul & Fitz Consulting to project manage any construction/repair work."
Norman Hewett | 301 Blenheim Road
"My Project consisted of three primary goals that I needed to achieve:
1. Bring my building to 67% NBS or better by structurally strengthening various areas that were identified by independent Engineers appointed by Fitz Consulting.
2. Bring my building up to the current building code standards of fire systems, disabled accessibility, and other compliance-related items as required by the local authority.
3. Assist the tenant and me with a modernized fit-out where the costs were to be apportioned between both parties.
Paul and his team helped me from the concept and design phase all the way through to code of compliance certification. Along the way, we made changes that required variations and Fitz Consulting incorporated all the changes into the existing schedule without any delay of the timeline at all. I now have a long-term tenant who is happy with their new workspace and I would recommend Fitz Consulting to anyone needing assistance and any work done to their commercial building."
"Paul was project managing the strengthening of commercial premises of which I was a tenant preparing to move in. Paul was great at keeping me in the loop, keeping things moving, ensuring my painters were compliant, and accommodating additional requests. His team of builders, engineers, and plumbers are solid and dependable. He ensured compliance at all times, arranged appropriate sign-off, and helped resolve any issues while being personable and professional."
Rachel Alexander | Alexanders Digital Marketing
"Following the 2010 earthquakes, our severely damaged commercial building needed a considerable amount of repair and upgrade. Working with Paul Fitzsimmons of Fitz Consulting Ltd was great. The project from my point of view ran really smoothly and I was really pleased with the final outcome. He dealt with the day-to-day running of the renovation and upgrade. There were variations and challenges at certain points of the project, and I have to say that Paul dealt with them efficiently, and with excellent communication throughout. I was really pleased with the service that Fitz Consulting gave us and I would be happy to recommend them to others or use them again."
Chris Voison | Kiwi Basecamp
"Fitz Consulting was recommended to me by a contact in Christchurch to attend to remediation of our property that required significant strengthening work. As we live out of Christchurch I needed someone competent, trustworthy, knowledgeable, and who also had good relationships with the required trades. Paul has those contacts, and between them all, they completed the tasks required under sometimes difficult circumstances. He maintained liaisons with tenants and worked with them so they could still manage their businesses with their day-to-day requirements. Paul’s professionalism has resulted in a very satisfactory conclusion to a substantial and difficult project."
Brian Ngan | Waltham
"Our building was severely damaged by the earthquakes of 2011, and apart from any repairs it also required a modern upgrade from its 1990’s appearance to make the building more lettable in the marketplace. Fitz Consulting came recommended to the Trustees and me as a firm to help us achieve the repair and refurbishment of 334 Manchester street. The two-story 1500 m2 building required demolition and replacement of the roof, partition walls, flooring, structural upgrade, fire system upgrade, complete rewire, brand new plumbing, and redesign of bathroom areas. The entirety of the work required took place over the course of a year and Paul liaised with neighboring property owners and tenants, to assure minimal disruption occurred to all affected parties. Paul updated me with the daily progress of the project and any issues that may have taken place along the way and the entire project went very smoothly considering the difficult nature of the project. We would recommend Paul and his team to anyone looking for assistance with their next commercial building project."

OUR TEAM OF LICENSED BUILDING PRACTITIONERS.
For the past ten years, we have been working with the same group of three primary LBP’s in the Canterbury Region. Our relationship with them has been established over many years of trust and successfully completed projects. Each LBP has their specialty area of expertise, and we allocate our projects to the LBP whose skill set best suits the project that has been awarded. If we are working on a retaining wall, we will work with our Civil LBP, a building strengthening project with a Commercial-based LBP. For home renovations, we use our Renovation LBP.
Our ability to adapt to the various types of projects with the correct set of skills allows us to diversify into three areas of construction that we excel in: Residential & Commercial renovations and specialty Civil Projects.
SERVICE DRIVEN PROJECT MANAGEMENT.
Service is what separates us from other building companies in the same space.
We pride ourselves on our service and communication skills. We always answer the phone calls and emails our clients require when a project is underway. It doesn’t matter what time of day or what day of the week we get a call-we always make time for our clients.
We spend an enormous amount of time before a project begins on our due diligence for what will be required to ensure everything is accounted for. The due diligence period is “free” to our clients but critical for ensuring a project goes smoothly from the start.
