"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."

"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."
"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."

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.
