"Up for the challenge"
I came to Cadman regarding my 4 new builds for a new 5 lot subdivision in Castor Bay in early 2014, with floor plans from a resource consent application. It was a very difficult site due to the complex landscape, with large retaining walls and an overland flow path.
Cadman took on the challenge. Daniel Sullivan started working on the details.
Being a difficult site, there had been quite a number of technical issues along the way. Cadman have always been excellent at discussing the issues with me, providing options, and giving me the most cost effective advice.
It is rare, in the currently busy building industry that anyone could keep to their word of delivery but Cadman have been on time consistently.
Daniel in particular, has done a great job at following up with the City Council during the building consent application process.
The four building consents were approved by Council late 2014 and early 2015. It has been great experience with Cadman.
"1940 Bungalow Renovation"
Cadman Architectural Design was employed by us in 2008 to design plans to renovate our 1940’s brick & tile bungalow in Westmere, Auckland.
The brief was to convert a small existing building containing 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, and a single garage that was on a narrow section, to a modern 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom, double garage, but having a design that was in keeping with the age of the district.
This task was difficult in the fact that working within the narrow site, already covered by 35%. Therefore there was a need to make an application for a Resource Consent.
It was a major rebuild, in fact, there was only three outside walls and the floor left of the original building.
We found the Cadman team fulfilled all expectations and came up with a design that was in keeping with the age of the district, resolved the Resource Consent requirements, and had the plans pass through council with ease.
The Cadman team were very pleasant to work with, always listening to us, whilst offering some great ideas, yet still working within the budget. They returned the result in excellent time, dealt with the council and were always available to the builder for discussions.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Cadman to any other clients.

"Making the difference"
From the start of the project, Cadman worked with me in constructing a home in Murrays Bay. I have worked with Cadman on numerous projects where it has occurred to me that they are always co-operative and have made a great difference in making my job easier. They have always fulfilled our requirements and deal with everything with great concern and passion. They have trustworthy and a reliable designers and it has always been a great pleasure to work with Cadman.
As the head builder on this project, Cadman has earned a great deal of respect for their conscientious manner and skillful workmanship in dealing with my project. Workmanship and teamwork, I believe, has lead on to a successful outcome in our work together and I wish all the best always for their future in architecture.
