I confirm that during the last 5 years or so, I have engaged Maurice Buckley of Bays Architectural to carry out our design work on various residential building projects in the Auckland and Northland region.

The bulk of the work has been involved translating existing concept drawings and developing a full set of detailed working drawings, preparing building consent applications and managing each application through to consent issue.

In my experience, Maurice and his team have always provided a friendly and cost competitive service. In particular, they have been able to liaise well with individual customers and provide pragmatic and cost effective design solutions.

We used the services of Bays Architectural, now Shore Architectural, to help us develop a property in Triangle Rd from one site to three sites complete with three house designs and to have the houses built. The site was steep and had a creek on the northern boundary. Maurice and his team arranged for the Town Planning, ecology, flood, geotechnical reports, Engineering for both the sub division and the house construction. They also carried out the house design for the three houses then helped us through the construction of all three houses. 

The entire project was carried out with a minimum of fuss from our perspective to a successful conclusion
