    "Shane has been one our best ever 'finds' in Auckland. He is a brilliant communicator, getting back to us and the council quickly, often within an hour of an email or phone call. He is very down to earth and comes up with continual good ideas to save money and make things work and look better. His prices are very reasonable and well worth the extra hand holding he will provide to you when inevitably things don't progress according to plan!"

    "We contacted Paragon Solutions to draw up plans to convert our downstairs rumpus room into a second bathroom, laundry and extra bedroom.
    Shane was really easy to deal with and very responsive to any questions we had. He helped us through the entire process really efficiently and with the most competitive price.
    Great attention to detail so that when the plans were submitted to council, they were approved within just a few days.
    Would definitely recommend Shane at Paragon Solutions.

    "One of my best decisions was to work with Shane on our bathroom design and consent process. Things went as smooth as I would have never expected. He was very meticulous in every work and we did not have any issue. All work was complete and ready way before the expected date. I would highly recommend his work and have stored his number for all our future projects. "

    "Shane helped us to apply for building consent to add a new toilet and two store rooms, as well as re-layout the bathroom.

    He is professional and easy to work with. In the process, Shane responded to our requests and questions in a very speedy manner. He is friendly, patient and good in communication.

    We were on a tight schedule and Shane was very helpful and acted on our behalf and tried his best to expedite every steps.

    We are totally satisfied with Shane's service."

    "Brilliant work, I required building consent to install a new bathroom. Shane came around and took all measurements/photos, perfect plans/design and completed all the council paperwork and phone calls required for the building consent to be done, within a few weeks I had the signed off paperwork and plans in my hand from the council, couldn't have been easier, great job and great price. Will definitely be using Shane again for any future work on the house that requires his expertise "

    "We employed Shane to re-design our kitchen and laundry.
    We found Shane to be very friendly and approachable, highly professional, with an excellent standard of work. We had no problems gaining building consent thanks to Shane.
    Shane’s almost immediate responses to emails and phone calls made the whole process (which can seem a little overwhelming) very easy.
    I also found Paragon solutions pricing to be extremely competitive. I would have no hesitations in recommending Shane at Paragon solutions to anyone requiring technical drawings.

    "We contacted Shane with regards to designing a new deck in place of an existing conservatory and rebuilding and extending a second deck at our house. This included some structural alterations (removing a wall to install a large ranchslider between 2 small windows).

    We found Shane to be very professional and responsive to emails and phone calls. He was able to recommend an engineer and other contractors who we have found to have reasonable rates and are easy to deal with.

    Shane's quote was to support our application to get both resource and building consent through the council, which was no easy task with the council providing him with incorrect information and unnecessary delays. We appreciated Shane's calm manner throughout the process (when we weren't so calm!) and we would highly recommend his service to anyone looking for a draftsman."

    "We approached Paragon Solutions to draw up the plans for our en suite bathroom and help us submit them to council for consent approval.

    We spoke to a few "designers" who could help with the design, the drafting and planning, the council submission. They invariably came joined at the hip with a builder in a take one take all arrangement.

    We wanted to keep things simple because the job is simple. Not much designing needed with a toilet, shower and sink in an existing room.

    We contacted Paragon Solutions and spoke to Shane who was friendly and interested in our job. He offered a reasonable price to draw up the plans we required and helped us submit them to the council for approval.

    We would use Shane's services again and would recommend him to anyone looking to keep things simple without strings attached to builders and other tradies.

    "Shane is courteous and punctual and he was able to work with us on a relatively tight timeline without issue. Shane dealt with council, on my behalf, obtaining Building Consent which was most helpful. He then once again acted quickly and efficientlty to assist me obtaining CCC some months later.
    Highly recommended.

    "We originally posted our internal renovation/new deck job on Builderscrack and were impressed by Shane's quick and professional response. He promptly visited us and prepared a quote. We took the time to consider his quote and found he was very competitive after comparing a few other companies.
    His service throughout the as-built and concept drawing process was really good. Always very responsive and was good at communicating the process to us (it was our first renovation experience requiring council consent/detailed drawings).

    Shane liaised with structural engineer and then the council and made the process towards gaining council consent very smooth. The council consent came through faster than I expected which was great. We really appreciated that.

    I wouldn't hesitate recommending Shane to anyone else needing plans drawn for a renovation. Thanks!

If it had not been for Shane and the job he did for us, we wouldnt have been able to undertake one our biggest and most exciting bathroom renovations. He made the process seemles and easy as. I cant say enough good things about - and the funny thing is we've never actually met as yet, we might have to remedy that with lunch sometime!

    Shane provided me with an excellent service - cost, time and quality - and made the technical requirements of the process plain sailing.

    The quality and detail on the plans produced made the approval process with Council very straight forward."

    "We employed Shane to do a small draughting job for us (after calling many larger firm's who were just not interested due to the size of the job). He was very efficient, quick and accommodating to our needs - even coming out to do the measurements on a weekend. Shane lodged the plans with Council and handled any queries (if there was any). We now have the building permit in our hands and can recommend Shane unreservedly."

This week/ASAP

About us
Hi, my name is Shane and I am a qualified Architectural Designer in Auckland.

I specialise in "As Built Drawings" and I'm a preferred choice by architects in Auckland to produce high quality drawings. I pride myself in my professionalism, and my attention to detail ensures that my work is thoroughly.

I am also available for Residential Building Consents required for New Decks, Bathroom Additions, adding or changing Windows & Doors and complete New Builds for Houses, Minor Dwellings & Sleepouts.

What we do
I can handle every part of the process, including interaction with engineers and other external specialists when required, and all communication with council, which takes the stress off you.

I will firstly visit you on site to find out what you are planning on doing, and then give you a Competitive Quote. The next step is for me to Measure Up your house and draw the "As Built". Once this is completed I will then work with you to come up with the best Concept that works for your needs. Once you are happy with the Concept I will complete the Building Consent Drawings and take care of all other required Documentation. At this point the Building Consent can then be lodged and I will continue to deal with council until your Building Consent is approved.

So whether you are adding an ensuite into an existing house, building a deck or building a new dwelling on your property, I have the skills to get the job done for you professionally and efficiently.

I look forward to discussing your needs with you soon.
