To whom it may concern
We have known Mark Butler professionally for over 20 years, and in this time we have been involved in a number of projects. Residential through to Commercial buildings all have been completed to the satisfaction of the clients and this Company.
The engagement of Mark Butler on this latest project, our own residence has again been undertaken with the professional approach and competency to which we have become accustom.
The Design Brief and Design:
After the initial interview and site evaluation it became apparent of a number of constraints in the design process. These issues were worked through and a design concept was developed to which we were very happy with. The design and conceptual evaluation, communication and understanding of the project from the outset is exactly what was expected.
Planning issues also required some input, with the site being located in a Sensitive Environment by the Council. Resource Consent documentation was also produced my Mark Butler, all with a successful result.
A use of materials for this project has been one of interest with a number of discussions taking place, the knowledge and understanding of the products has also been helpful.
The ability to design, development of the initial design, the planning processes, develop suitable and sustainable design all has been undertaken on this and many projects successfully by Mark.
Drawings, Documentation and Construction:
A sound understanding of the building practice, construction technology and ability to produce clear accurate drawings which facilitate the construction process. Documentation, Drawings, Specifications, Regulations and Codes, Are all assets Mark regularly demonstrates.
Contract Administration for this project was not required, being my own house. Mark in the past has demonstrated sound knowledge of Contract Administration and the ability to undertake site meetings and inspection of work as required.
