When international visitors first touch down in New Zealand, the first glimpse they get of our fair land is the heart of Auckland’s south. Manukau City is a vibrant cosmopolitan region that’s characterised by its myriad parks, beaches and fascinating history. Home to more than half a million people, Manukau is less ‘city’ and more ‘village’ which is why the region has long been a popular place for families. There are a range of properties within the region, including villas, new builds and older houses with development potential.
Manukau is seeing a big increase in multi-generational homes, more so than other parts of Auckland or even the rest of the country. As Auckland City continues to grow, a large amount of development is being carried out in the southern suburbs. But there are also many well-established communities that have been around for decades. These houses are now reaching a stage where they need a ‘refresh’ to make it more comfortable for today’s way of living.
Of course, turning a concept into a plan and then into an actual building project is easier said than done. Homeowners without experience in building or project managing can struggle to navigate the red tape that comes with compliance, managing tradespeople and finding the time they need to ensure every box is ticked. Entrusting the project to Refresh streamlines the process and significantly reduces stress.
The Refresh Manukau team can support you through every stage of your renovation, from when you are trying to match your ideas up to your budget, through to presenting you with your newly renovated home. They will ensure every aspect of each project is managed alongside a set project budget and schedule - taking the stress out of the experience for homeowners and replacing it with a reliable and professional experience.
Council compliance is becoming stricter and harder to achieve, possibly thanks to past building failures like leaky homes. Therefore, it can take much longer for plans to receive consent, so it pays to get it right the first time with by working with an experienced renovation specialist.
Finishing a job on time and within a set budget is the hardest thing to achieve when so many people are involved. The proven Refresh process is what ensures every renovation project runs smoothly and to time. Every project is a one-off; Refresh uses a proven process and takes learnings from one project into the next to ensure each renovation meets the client’s unique requirements.
The success of Refresh’s projects also comes down to the nature of the people involved.
