History of Refresh Renovations

Refresh Renovations was established by Traffic in 2010.  Traffic is New Zealand's leading business strategy and marketing firm.  With the backing of many of New Zealand's largest building industry brands, Traffic has quickly established Refresh as the leading national renovation company.

Refresh is now the world's leading international renovation company, with operations in New Zealand, Australia and the UK. Refresh's aim is to transform the level of service, and the renovation experience that is provided to consumers around the world.  Refresh is a "design and build" renovation specialist. This means that we manage the entire process from the initial design concepts through to the handover.

This end-to-end service is incredibly important.  Having one point of contact resolves the major issues that customers face with renovations. Budgets can be effectively managed because the customer has an informed project manager to help them make trade-off decisions on where money should be invested for the best result. Issues are resolved quickly because Refresh takes overall responsibility. Our customers don't end up in the typical position where they are faced with sub-contractors who are blaming each other for problems, and not fixing them (nationwide, 1 in 3 renovations ends in a dispute!).

Refresh is a franchised business. To date, 26 Refresh franchises have been established throughout NZ, 13 across Australia and we have 2 franchisees running in the UK.  If you're interested in talking to Refresh about potentially becoming a franchisee, please contact us for an initial discussion. We're interested in hearing from professionals who are looking to establish their own business, but want the backing and support of a professional and proven organisation.  To become a franchisee, you must demonstrate to us that you are a great communicator, that you understand the importance of customer service, and that you are capable of growing a great business.
