    "As an expat architect returning to NZ, I needed plans prepared quickly, to obtain Building Consent for additions to my home. Chris quickly understood my scheme and requirements, and correctly scoped his service. His team delivered exactly what was agreed, with good communication. Chris maintained an overview at all times. I would recommend Measure and Draw for an informed and efficient service."

    "Chris from Measure and Draw came to quote me in June last year and appeared confident that we could do an extension. He seemed to have an endless knowledge of the building codes. Measure and Draw obtained both a resource and building consent form me and my wife. They delivered on their promise and we have already referred them to some of our friends. Would use them again."

    "I could only describe this company as having very excellent service and being very professional. When I first visited their office I knew I was in good hands. My design project was managed extremely well. I was always informed of where my job was up to and it was completed before scheduled. I was very satisfied and wouldn't recommend anyone else.

    "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...
    "

    "Hello Ryton, I am sorry that you have had a negative experience with the service provided by the team at Measure and Draw. We have been servicing the Auckland Residential Market for over 10 years now and have hundreds of clients a year with a wide range of projects that have varying complexity, we do try our level best to meet all their expectations and our own organisational targets. We appreciate your input Ryton and I would like to open up dialogue with you further via my email (have sent you an email) when you have time. Regards, Chris Grimshaw Operations Manager Measure and Draw Ltd "

    "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."

    "I was excited to deal with Chris who arrived before the time he said he would. Once speaking to Chris he was going to pass on the job to one of his drawers. 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."

Chris and Shane have kept to every appointment and e-mail communication was extremely fast. We couldn't have asked for better service which was completed ahead of time too. I can happily recommend Measure & Draw to anyone. Thanks so much guys."

    "I initially met with Chris who provided me with a quote and a timeframe to do my consent drawings, which were completed within the timeframe and were regularly shared with me until they represented my vision and requirements, and then they processed through to Council on my behalf and now I can get busy with turning that vision into a reality. Thanks to Chris, Jack and the team at Measure & Draw."

    "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."

    "Ayah and Chris at Measure and Draw have delivered a great service which was accurate, on time and with excellent communication. Our project involved a full interior renovation in Onehunga. Measure and Draw provided our full set of plans, and submitted and managed our building consent with the Auckland Council. They delivered on their timeframe and kept us up to date as the building consent progressed. I can highly recommend Measure and Draw to anyone needing a knowledgeable team to handle the plans and building consent application process for their own project. We will definitely enlist the skills of Measure and Draw with our next property to renovate."

    "We were told that we needed a building consent for a job we thought was a small alteration. We got in contact with Chris at Measure and Draw, he came around the next day and 2 days later we had a quote, We were happy with the quote and told them to go ahead. They gave us a time frame and it came in well before they said it would. They kept us up to date and sent us the drawings to check and alter as we wanted, Would recommend to anybody weather job is small or big and will defiantly be using them again."

    "Simple fact is these guys do the business extremely well, do it on time, do it within budget and do it as per spec.
    - they returned calls
    - they were professional
    - they were cost effective
    - 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. I do not have a single negative thing to say about these guys, They delivered on what they said they were going to provide and exceeded all of my expectations.

    "The nature of job- Bathroom renovation and addition of 1 more bathroom.
    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. The team is very friendly and efficient. Me and my wife would highly recommend Measure and Draw. We are thankful to them and wish them good luck

    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.
