Helsing Kisby will provide the design services required to suit your requirements. The RIBA Architects Services, or the NZIA Schedule of Services both provide a comprehensive guide to the scope of work that can be undertaken, tailored to the local building industry and legislative framework. This will apply to most situations, from a basic feasibility study to upgrade your house, to full design services up to handover for a completed complex building.


Fees are agreed on a project by project basis, before work commences. These can be calculated on an hourly rate, or related to the overall construction budget. A fee proposal is prepared for each potential project engagement, based on current published fee scales. A project will probably be broken down into stages, and a budget agreed for each stage.


Helsing Kisby will always work with specialist consultants where appropriate; Structural Engineers are nearly always required, and others recommended when needed. These may be Project Managers, Quantity Surveyors, Services Engineers, Fire Engineers, Acoustics consultants – the list can be long, if the project is large and/or complex.
