The ‘windy city’, ‘Welli’ or ‘Wild Wellington’ – New Zealanders have found many pet names for their capital. And there are just as many reasons to fall in love with the place – and to stay and build your nest. From awesome art galleries and cultural events through to a great coffee culture and fantastic hiking trails in the surrounding bush, there is something on offer for everyone.

Architectural styles vary greatly across the city. Generally speaking, you can come across historic villas and bungalows near the centre of town and find ultra-modern houses on the outskirts. There is an abundance of wooden houses, interspersed with a few Art Deco housing blocks and many fine examples of post-modern buildings. Many older homes can benefit greatly from a makeover that includes improved insulation and heating systems.

Spending a significant proportion of time on planning can help you save money further down the track by avoiding delays and costly changes. That’s why the briefing stage is a key step with Refresh Renovations where a team of dedicated and experienced consultants will work through the options and details with you. The team will also look at the concept designs and feasibility with you. This is the time to work out your requirements and iron out any issues or concerns. While it’s not uncommon to come across unforeseen problems, having a clear concept plan to work with means less changes during the built phase, and hence will help the team complete your project on time and within budget.

Being part of a national and international group also means that the Refresh teams are able to combine economies of scale with local know-how. They can draw on cutting-edge project management technology and have access to the top local sub-contractors and suppliers. Knowledge of the local rules and regulations is crucial and the team at Refresh will be able to manage all necessary paperwork and obtain all required permits. This is a massive stress reducer. Simply leave it to the professionals who know what timeframes and regulations to expect.

Basically, the Refresh Wellington team can assist you with every stage of your home renovation design, build and decor - helping you to get the result you want: on time and on budget.
