Client Testimonials

We have worked with clients around the globe as well as here in Hamilton. Listed below are a few of their kind comments regarding our Architectural Projects and Home Designs.

"In 2009 after a year of thought research and planning, we approached Aaron with a view to him designing a substantial house we wanted to build. It was a very easy decision to approach Aaron. We simply looked around at houses we admired, and it was uncanny how a high percentage of these had been designed by him. We felt that they all LOOKED GREAT.

That was a big thing for us. We had firm ideas of what we wanted in terms of floor plan, but vague ideas of 'the look and style'.

We didn't need to talk to Aaron for long to get a feeling of connection, he was on our wavelength, he had ideas we liked, he was happy to listen to our ideas, and he had experience and a lot of great builds to back up his ability and reputation. He was able to give us good up front indication of his range of services and the likely charges for the project we were considering and the input from him we envisaged requiring.

Aaron gave our floor plan three concept 'looks', and advised pros and cons and expected cost variations between each. we narrowed down to one and worked on that.

The whole experience was exciting. Aaron has a laid back approach and nothing phases him. He is patient and we had a lot of laughs. We had a lot of input and he guided and at times 'refereed'.

The result was a fabulous plan, a very straight forward build (for the size and complexity of the home), and great assistance with small details as we neared completion. Aaron was happy to share ideas in relation to decoration, finishes, sourcing materials etc.

Aaron was very helpful in guiding the plan through Council permitting and Resource Consent processes, and had access to builders for full quotes. He was fairly close in terms of designing to our budget which we appreciated and our builder commented on how helpful he was and that the plans were very good.

As you would have gathered from what is written above, it went very well, we got an amazing house for which we have received many favourable comments, we are indebted to Aaron for the great work he did. In fact he designed another great house for us after that for a sec build project.

We have no hesitation in recommending Aaron for your next building project, if you want something special - large or small. He has great foresight for renovations and brilliant ideas for new concepts.But beware he's also likely to become a good friend and trusted advisor through the process.

"We have worked with Aaron Haddock on many projects and always found him knowledgeable and professional.

Aaron relates well to our clients, and ensures that his building designs look great, fit within their budget, and meet their expectations."

"We have used Aaron to design a Bach, Commercial Building and our own Home. We were wrapped with not only the results, but how easy the whole process was in each instance.
On all projects Aaron listened to our wants, needs and the first design he produced for us were almost spot on.
He never pushed any specific design theme onto us but intuitively picked up on the style we were after and offered us really good practical advice and excellent product knowledge.

Being a company we have also built a number of Aaron's designs, which are rich with detail. This enables the job to be accurately priced from the outset and to progress so much more quickly once it's underway. When clients choose to pay by charge up, this ultimately saves them money.

We highly recommend Aaron and he would be our first choice if we were to build again."
