    "We engaged Measure and Draw to conduct the architectural and engineering design work for a renovation project on a 1970s architecturally designed home commencing in late 2018, and I really can’t say very much positive about our experience with this company.

    When we first selected M&D, we based a lot of our decision on the feedback shown on Google and other similar sites. Based on this feedback we thought we had made a good choice. However, much of our experience with M&D has been well below what I would consider an acceptable standard. I feel compelled to write the following in order to share our experiences so other potential clients can get an idea of what could happen should they engage M&D for architectural services.

    In general, communication, apparent lack of staff, and professional competence are clearly some of the areas of deficiency within M&D; with many of the problems we experienced throughout our project being attributed to these issues. Prior to submitting our building consent application to council for processing I had identified a number of errors/inconsistencies in our draft plans, such as mentions of aluminium joinery on some pages and timber joinery on other pages, as well as tilled floors in the bathrooms. At no point had we ever mentioned timber joinery and tilled floors, so I would suspect that our plans were initially a cut and paste from another job. These errors were bought to the attention of the lead designer, the lead designer’s senior and indeed the managing director who advised these errors would be rectified and incorporated in the draft plans prior to submission to council. These changes however were never made, and whilst small, these errors do lead to requirements for minor variations to be submitted to council, which cost money, and of course these costs were met by us.

    One of the more substantial variations we have had to produce for council has been around the addition of a macerator pump for a bathroom waste water system. Prior to submitting our plans to council it was mentioned to the design team that the waste water system they had proposed on the draft plans would not work as they had drawn the system basically flowing up hill to the existing council main! The last time I checked S*it does not flow up hill so we advised that we were wanting to adopt a macerator pump; however, the design was never amended. We questioned why this was never added to the plan and were simply told we can just apply for another minor variation. Whilst this is indeed possible, it has taken additional design work due to the required addition of retaining walls in which to house the macerator unit; this design work being at additional cost.

    One of the other more significant issues we had were with inaccurate measurements being taken by M&D; In some cases these errors have been in excess of 250mm, which is kind of ironic since they use the word Measure in their name. Whilst M&D did correct some of these inconsistencies, we have ended up with substantial inaccuracies between the architectural and structural plans which has resulted in some spaces (Bedrooms) that are smaller than what we had anticipated, and structural beams being designed which don’t fit the rooms they were planned for. Whilst it is unrealistic to expect perfection with site measurements, all three of our builders and indeed council inspectors were surprised by how inaccurate our plans were, it would appear that 10-20mm error is more inline with common expectation, not 250mm.

    As part of our project we paid Measure & Draw Consultants (part of the wider M&D company structure I think) to do the engineering work for our project, and this is probably were we have experienced our greatest issues. One of the repeat problems we experienced was around M&Ds reluctance to come on site after the initial site measure. This appears to be an unusual practice in the industry and I’m not sure if this is cost driven, but it does seem that management might be restricting additional site visits, which prevents the designers from truly understanding projects as best they can. It is clear to me our project was not helped by the fact that the lead designer did not come to the initial site meeting when we discussed the project and no engineer ever came to the house during design works.

    On numerous occasions throughout the project I was asked to draw the designers/engineers diagrams of existing structures or send photos so they can “understand the building”. Whilst I acknowledge a picture does paint a thousand words, actually seeing the structure of an existing building and understanding how it works must surely be better. In hindsight, perhaps I should not have provided this detail and it would have forced a site visit, but you do what you can to try and move things along. For us, M&Ds reluctance to come on site, led to a load bearing wall structure being designed without any consideration on how that structure would retain the existing soil and foundations under the existing house. M&Ds design indeed would have left a wall completely unretained which led to our builder stopping work on our project at the request of council. By this time with the mounting issues we were experiencing with M&D, and having been advised of their inability to now certify and support their own design work through the PS4 process, we elected to engage another engineering firm to redesign this structure and others; obviously incurring additional cost along the way.

    Throughout our project, general verbatim comments from our builders, council inspectors and new engineers have suggested that much of the engineering design work conducted by the engineering division of M&D was simply nonsensical and clearly had been pieced together without any clear thought on how what was being designed was actually going to work. Whilst I acknowledge that in the main the provided engineering design work was compliant and safe, other than the retaining wall mentioned above, much of it is just not practical or designed to be aesthetically pleasing. As an example, new supporting steel beams were designed with fixing bolts through them that would have been visible inside bedrooms unless a number of walls were packed prior to lining. Whilst this was a simple fix for our new engineer, had any thought been taken on how the engineering would work then it could have prevented yet another minor variation.

    Another piece of pathetic engineering design work was around the adoption of a new pile in the centre of the house which was to be dug to a minimum of 1.5 metres deep with a 450mm diameter. Whilst this design is compliant, this is a big hole and the only practical way this could be achieved would have been to use an auger driven by a large tracked machine such as a Dingo or Kanga. We ended up getting this pile redesigned by our new engineer to a more appropriate hand dug footing as it was just completely impractical/impossible to achieve this design without temporarily strengthening the existing floor structure of the house and building ramps in which to drive an appropriately equipped 1 ton tracked machine into the centre of the house. I could continue with similar issues for some time, but what I have mentioned above does give a good indication of what our experience with M&D was like.

    This is the second time I have posted this feedback about Measure and Draw, the first time we posted it the Managing Partner contacted us acknowledging that they had made errors and wanting to put things right so we could remove the feedback. Whilst M&D did pay one of the bills we incurred with our new engineer, the rest of their “help” still remained substandard, inaccurate, and in general made things worse. What this company has now left us with are substantial bills for additional work, structural beams that protrude out the side of the house, and rooms that are not the size we were hoping for.

    I don’t doubt Measure and Draw are capable of designing a new square box for a house, and I’m sure the company will continue to have some satisfied customers, however, if you are considering a renovation, or are planning to construct a more complex building then I would not touch them with a ten foot barge pole, to put it mildly.

    "Chris Grimshaw come onsite and provided us a quote. Once accepted, Annie was our Junior Architectural Designer. I have nothing but positive things to say about our experience with Measure and Draw. Annie was a delight to deal with and very honest in regards to her skills and capabilities. She provided us with lots of useful information and when there was something she didn’t know, she wasn’t afraid to ask her senior. We have really enjoyed working with her & we’re pleased our council consent has come through nice and quickly. I would recommend this company."

    "We had Chris from Measure and Draw come to our villa in Ponsonby Last October. Our Home was in desperate need of work as the family had grown recently. I was surprised to see the quick response to coming onsite for the quote and providing me with a formal quote the next day. We now have our builders on site and are excited to see the completed extension and much wanted swimming pool. We have since recommended Chris and his team to friends down the road. A company that stands by their promises and their clients 10/10 happy to recommend."

    "Well reading the other comments make me realise measure and draw must have been busier with other peoples plans and more interested in their projects than ours...
    We had a very different experience to everyone else..
    -No communication about what stage the process was in,
    -Limited consultation by the designer and engineer about what we wanted, which resulted in plans submitted to council that had incorrect windows.(even after being supplied with our concept drawing).
    We waited a total of 6 months which I feel for the project was quite long.

    -The proposed cost of project submitted to council by measure and draw fell short by $70k

    I felt badly represented by the team at measure and draw,

    I wouldn't rate this company at all and wont be recommending or using again..

    Beware of big promises and little delivery...

    "Chris & his team were great to work with. Emails were responded to within 48hours and any questions or alterations to the plans we requested were actioned in a timely manner. We were also kept up to date on the progress of our project as well, which was appreciated.

    The two people who came to measure the site were very friendly and professional.

    There was a slight mix-up with a site visit appointment which meant they showed up to the site on the wrong day when no one was home. They measured the outside of the house (since they were already there) and rescheduled another time to measure the interior. Even though there was a slight hiccup, they were proactive (did what work they could from the outside) and suggested a solution to ensure there was minimal inconvenience to me. So extra points for that.

    Overall, I would highly recommend Measure & Draw for their good communication, friendly and "nothing is too much trouble" demeanor and most importantly for finishing the project before the deadline.

Mohammed has been a great help, letting me know what has been going on through the process and keeping me well informed through phone calls and through emails. If any one was going to a house renno i would recommend Measure and Draw as we have had a great experience. They have made the process really easy. Can't wait for our rennos to start looking forward to a bigger house for the kids."

    "I initially dealt with Chris who arrived on site exactly when he said he would. He explained the process to me and provided a time frame of 6wks to complete the work. He passed the job over to Shainic who also turned up on site when he said he would to take the measurements. He had an assistant and they went about the job in a professional and friendly manner and caused little disruption. Again everything was explained clearly and all questions were answered. Communication was great and despite me changing my mind a few times nothing seemed to be a problem and they were always happy to accommodate my needs. Job was completed ahead of schedule. Very happy with the work and orofeasionalism and would use again if required and have already recommended to a friend. Thanks for making my vision a possibility."

    - they diddnt talk in riddles (something that is endemic across this industry)
    - they treated my with respect
    - they delivered an exceptionally high standard of work
    Ive used a number of architects, draftspersons over the last twenty years and no one has come even close to the high level of service we received from Chris & his team on our most recent tricky off street parking application.

    It wasnt easy for me to get hold of the tradesmen, but when I contacted Chris at Measure and Draw, although they were busy, they said that they will come and meet up to give us a quote.
    Chris came over for first free visit and gave us a no obligation quote. They looked and sounded reliable in the first meeting. They kept all payment terms clear and delivered within the time frame that they had promised. Chris always answered my calls and replied to my emails. Always looked at our suggestions positively and explained patiently if anything wasnt possible.

    "Last year I was in need of a resource and building consent for parking and a new deck that was near the boundary. Measure and Draw were by far the most pleasant of all. The level of customer service was OUTSTANDING. They communicated with me clearly and in a timely manner. Will recommend."

    "The team at measure and Draw came recommended to me by a family member. I was surprised to see that the job was in at council 2 weeks ahead of schedule. My builder was happy to start early which was a real win for us. Great work."

    "As a first time home owner in New Zealand I was not sure what was required. I had a builder who did illegal building works and was in trouble with the council. Brendan and his team reassured me and then completed a certificate of acceptance, resource and building consent very fast. Both Chris and Brendan were extremely helpful and they handled all the communications with the surveyor and engineer they recommended."

    "Early this year I was in need of a major extension to my existing home. Brendan and his team were friendly and knowledgeable. My wife and I found them to be realistic with time frames. They even suggested a builder and plumber both of which were professional. I will be using Measure and Draw in the future too."

    "Late 2013 we engaged Measure and Draw a garage design and consent at my property. The team was highly professional and they kept me informed through the design and consent phase. This allowed me to manage the project myself. Thanks to Brendan and the team we had full consent granted within 2 months of giving them the job. A professional and affordable draftsman who I have since referred to several friends."

    "A professional company. Very highly recommended.
    They were a third the cost of the other quotes I gathered so I was a bit weary but everything I wanted was done and more. Excellent communication, promt respose times. Brendan also established a clear time frame shorter than the other quotes and stuck to it.
