THE DESIGNFIRE has my full endorsement as an outstanding architecture firm. We have been involved in several construction projects over the past few years and THE DESIGNFIRE is to be one of the very best.
Working with Louie and his team was a pleasure. They balanced the architectural vision and the project realities professionally. At each turn of the construction process, he always had an informed answer to our client’s technical questions, which allows the project to drive forward without delay. Whilst awaiting for obtaining the final building consent, we had a bit of issue with the engineering firm and THE DESIGNFIRE wisely and professionally resolved the issue for our client. THE DESIGNFIRE has the depth of knowledge and experience to lead a project from pre-construction planning through to completion. We would thoroughly recommend Louie and his team to undertake any similar project.
