At Osborne Wells, we know that the most important thing is your input. That is why in the earliest stages of planning your dream home improvements, we like to sit down with you and discuss exactly what it is that you want to achieve in your home.

We have a thorough and professional briefing process that enables us to understand exactly what it is that you are looking for and why. We always listen carefully to the needs and wants of our clients and we suggest that all decision-makers in the household are a part of discussions at this stage. This allows us to address all concerns and considerations early on in the process.

As a design and build specialist, our role is to work with you to design and deliver the very best for the money you wish to spend. In the design and build process, your budget is just as important to us as the desired renovation outcome. We will also discuss the timescale in which you wish to have your project completed in; we will always work around what is convenient for you.

Concept and Practicality

The next step is to start to build an architectural concept using the information you have provided us with during your initial consultation. This includes identifying any risks or constraints and assessing the practicality of putting your plans into action.

During this stage, Osborne Wells will create and customise a concept drawing for you to see exactly what your renovation will look like when it is complete. If it is not what you had in mind, this is the perfect time to make changes before construction begins.

We will also provide you with estimates based on average costs, allowing you to start to making decisions on what your budget can include.

Working Drawings and Contract

Once detailed budget decisions have been made and working drawings have been developed, a detailed project cost and contract can then be produced based on the specifications of your project. This will include all engineering, structural, design and aesthetic specifications.

Because Osborne Wells has the best buying power, labour rates and building process efficiency, you can rest easy knowing that you are getting the most for your money. If, however, changes need to be made to your budget, costs can be refined during this stage by making modifications to the design.

We ensure that all possibilities are accounted for in our contracts to make life easier for you. This includes any structural issues that may be uncovered unexpectedly during the course of the work and how these will be dealt with. Osborne Wells also takes full responsibility for obtaining all required building and resource consents so that you don’t have to. This can be a very complex process, so it is important for time and cost management that this process is handled by the experts.


Once all working drawings and contracts have been finalised, your Osborne Wells project manager will then develop a schedule and brief all those involved in the building process.

It is your project manager’s job to ensure that all stages of the renovation process run smoothly and are carried out correctly. That is why at Osborne Wells, we use only the best and most experienced project managers and tradespeople, who work together to ensure that your project is completed on time, on budget and to the highest possible standard. With Osborne Wells’ end-to-end design and build service, you can be assured of a smooth-running project.
