Interior Design Build Team

Interior Design Build are integrated commercial interior specialists whose experience and expertise enables them to competently handle all parts of your interior commercial construction project. We can design and build your next commercial new build or renovation, or we can manage the project on a build-only basis.

Experience has taught us that every job is different. Whether you are envisioning a business relocation, office fitout, office refurbishment or a complete office renovation, we offer a tailored commercial office fitout and building upgrade service that is second to none. We listen carefully to the needs of our clients and work within their office design and build needs to create a space that they will be proud of, and that falls within their budget and deadlines.

At Interior Design Build, we pride ourselves on being hands-on in terms of project management and problem solving. We are dynamic and methodical in our planning and delivery while being flexible and adaptable because we know ideas evolve and aspects of any building project change during construction.

We have a strong relationship with sub-contractors and suppliers to maximise positive outcomes and meet the deadlines of your project whether it be a bespoke interior construction project, commercial office fitout, a building upgrade, structural strengthening or a commercial to residential property conversion.

Our Vision

Our passion is to provide high-quality, fully-integrated design and build (or build-only) solution to commercial property owners throughout Greater Auckland by utilising our industry-leading expertise across the commercial construction sector.

Our Company Values

To ensure the service we provide to our clients is efficient, high-quality, and to their complete satisfaction, we measure everything by the values we set for ourselves and apply to each commercial fitout or construction project we undertake.

Adaptability – Construction projects, no matter how big or small, usually need on-the-job adjustments; sometimes because of new ideas from the client and sometimes because of unforeseen matters. We pride ourselves on our hands-on management and problem-solving abilities that enable us to adapt to the client’s needs.

Trustworthiness – We have built strong relationships with trusted sub-contractors, construction professionals, and suppliers of quality building materials. This gives us the ability to provide assurances relating to building standards that clients can trust us to meet.

Transparency – Two-way communication is vital in any construction project. If the client has any input, we are ready and open to listening. If we strike any issues, or adjustments to the project are required, we convey these to the client immediately so there are no surprises or frustrations, especially relating to timeframes or budgets.

A Focus on Quality, Deadline and Budget – First and foremost, we want to ensure your finished project meets the highest standards of construction and finishing. However, we don’t believe that means we cannot meet your deadline and come in within your project’s budget. When Interior Design Build work on your project, we will do everything in our power to ensure we meet these three – quality, deadline, budget.

Giving Back Based in West Auckland many were affected by the Cyclone and Flooding.  Each month we donate to local charities to support those in a less fortunate position.  We have a real passion for giving back and supporting our surrounding communities.
