Forvia Hella, Ben Lomond Crescent
The team of THE DESIGNFIRE were efficient and they really knew what was needed. It’s been a pleasant surprise to work with them. Overall, we were very happy with THE DESIGNFIRE. The communication was great, and the project was completed on time. Everyone who has done building work says the project will be late. But it was not in this case. Well-organized, good project management and on-time. Being neutral renovation, a big picture overview at the start would have been beneficial for us. It’s fantastic. And brought the building back to life and into a new century. Probably the timing and the knowledge of the individual team from THE DESIGNFIRE, they were very responsible and they were often chasing us for answers.

The DesignFire’s been great from the start to work with. We had somewhat unique requirements, and they were very helpful in turning our dream into a reality. It is just as we imagined. It is just as we imagined. Aside from the delays that were out of anyone’s control, they’ve been very prompt in their communications and target timelines. They provided sound advice that made practical sense and gave multiple alternative, compromise solutions so that we could decide the best way forward before proceeding. 100 Percent. They’ve been awesome to work with, and I will recommend them to anyone to have a chat with them. It will be worth your time.

Happy Turtle Childcare Centre
THE DESIGNFIRE has taken care of the whole project for the Happy Turtle Childcare Centre, with a detail-oriented approach. There was no confusion during the process. Everything was very clear and set out according to the requirements of the fire compliance of the building. Our fire report was in details, like how to get out when it’s on fire, and like a visual assembly point.
We had one concern from CCC, that our bridge which was done by the landscape people was quite small. THE DESIGNFIRE contacted them and helped us to solve our problem, and in our next CCC visit, we passed.
When the parents come to visit our centre, we talk about our fire curtain. This is our additional feature for if there’s a fire or anything in the kitchen. They are quite happy with children’s safety and everything.
We would like to use THE DESIGNFIRE in our next projects, also would like to recommend them to our friends and others.
About 5 years ago, in conjunction with NMIT, we purchased a site on 42 Upper Queen Street.
This building needed a lot of renovation and make-over, so we handed the design amongst a number of architectural firms, and the most attractive design came from THE DESIGNFIRE. We found them very flexible and receptive to our comments and ideas. I think it was the winning card for us as the client. Getting the permits through the council is not an easy task. They had good contacts in the council, they were well known to the council, and that really speeded up the process. I think if we’ve chosen another group of architects, this project may have taken twice as long. We have recommended THE DESIGNFIRE to many people and referred them to Louie. You know the sample of his work is here, and people can see what they can get.
