We are a husband and wife team. We started Black House Consulting to provide an integrated, niche planning and design service to our clients. We draw from our professional experience working in our specialist roles as well as our personal experience with designing and building our home.
I am a Resource Management Planner. I have a Post Graduate Diploma in Planning from Massey University. I started my career working for the Hutt City Council where I gained valuable experience in the requirements and process for obtaining resource consent.
I have experience in subdivisions, earthworks, apartment complexes, commercial activities, design guide assessments, heritage buildings, landscape protection, soil contamination and more.
I enjoy working on a variety of projects and building trusting relationships with clients.
I am an Architectural Designer. I have been in the building industry since 2006, I started as a building labourer while completing a Bachelor of Building Science at Victoria University. After that I was a Building Consultant for three years, which included building compliance and long-term maintenance plans.
I was a Building Officer at Hutt City Council for four years during which time I gained valuable experience and knowledge of the Building Act, New Zealand Building Code, and the building consent process in general. Before joining Black House Consulting I worked for Prime Designs, a local design company, for two years. My role included management and technical support. With Black House Consulting I provide services relating to building consent such as concept design, working drawings, and Council queries.
I enjoy finding modern design solutions that meet client needs and wants, I am very flexible in my approach to design and I will work hard to come up a solution that looks good and meets the brief.
