We are justifiably proud of the work we complete for our clients and they are thrilled with the service and results we offer. Take a moment to read through what our clients have said about designer Jon Short and Actionplans Ltd.
The reports and drawings you produced were very thorough and communication with your contacts at TCDC and Environment Waikato ensured a smooth path to acceptance and granting of a consent. Your promptness on returning inquiries and the speedy timing of your report was impressive. I would strongly recommend your services to anyone requiring design and planning reports and thank you again for your professional guidance.Brian Dale, Hahei, On Site Sewage Disposal Design
I approached Jon in Tairua with a job that needed urgent attention. He was very good to deal with and helped me out at short notice. The job also required some engineering to be done, which Jon organised on my behalf. This is a great service, having Jon working with engineers he knows and trusts. It makes the job very streamlined.
Jon's plans were passed through council with no problems and the builders found them well drawn, accurate, easy to understand and use. I found Jon to be a very pleasant man who is professional, well organised and great to deal with. I have no reservations about recommending him for nay job and I will definitely use him if I need any future work done.
Jon carried out the geotechnical investigation, architectural designing and detailing, structural detailing, storm water disposal design and coordinated the structural engineer, fire design engineer and consulting planner. Jon provided a seamless fully coordinated set of drawings and specifications and managed the building consent process. His drawings were easy for our builder to work off.
We are extremely happy with how the development has gone and Jon's professionalism and knowledge to make it happen.
Ro-eco construction and I have done a large variety of work with Jon. This has included architectural and structural residential design and detailing, geotechnical soils testing for building foundation design, on site sewage disposal and store water disposal design, subdivision engineering and site suitability reporting including roading design, engineers PS4 site observation and reporting for structural elements such as foundations, block work and structural steel.
We have worked together on numerous building projects form quite large high end residential dwellings to house relocations, boat garages, additions and alterations. Jon has also worked for me with regard to site suitability and engineering on several small 3 lot subdivisions in Hahei over the last few years.All of this is done to a very high standard and his plans are well detailed and easy to follow. I find Jon very easy to work along with to achieve the high standards we both set.
We approached Jon to help us put together working drawings from an architect friend's freehand concept sketch. Jon took on the project with enthusiasm and delivered a full set of working drawings for what is a tricky house within the timetable he had indicated. He organised the engineering and worked with the builder and suppliers to ensure the products were right for the job. His plans and specifications were so thorough that they breezed through the council's consent process.
We especially appreciated the way he kept in contact with us throughout the process and amalgamated the initial concept along with our specific needs to product a finished product that lost nothing along the way.
I noticed a client's project on Jon's website and he confirmed what we later find out ourselves; that Jon is an extremely competent, knowledgeable, professional and enthusiastic architect to deal with and can't recommend him enough.
Jon from Actionplans was our one stop shop from start to finish of our house relocation project in the Coromandel. He covered all of our surveying, plans, council consenting, geo-tech and waste & storm water designs. He went above and beyond in terms of attention to detail and commitment to our job. We would happily use him again for any future projects, and highly recommend him to others.Tom Bromhead, Hahei | Project Gallery
